Beginner Tip

Start with a straight flying midrange and use that for your whole round for awhile. You won't be able to throw the fancy drivers any farther when you first start playing anyway. Once you can learn to throw that straight midrange for hyzer shots, straight shots, and turning shots, you will already be better than most of the people at your local course.

Most Memorable Moment

My first ever tournament win! Me and another guy tied and went to a sudden death playoff and we battled for 3 or 4 holes. I ended up winning, but even better, we ended up becoming best friends from that point on and even won Am World Doubles together a couple years later. Always root for your competitors!

What Separates Team Dynamic Discs?

Everyone on the team represents themselves well and the company we play for stands for something more than just discs and apparel. Dynamic Discs is always striving to be better than before. I see it on almost every sponsored player's profile and that is because it's so true. It really is a family and we treat each other as such. It's a pleasure to be a part of it!


In The Bag

Drivers

Dynamic Discs Lucid Defender

Overstable long distance drives and windy long distance drives.

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Defender

A notch less stable and a little more glide than Lucid.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Trespass

It goes SO FAR! Just stable enough to throw hard without flip city, but just enough turn and lots of glide to make it look like the 'roids just kicked in!

Dynamic Discs BioFuzion Trespass

Really long bombs in no wind or tailwind conditions. This will do anything you tell it in no wind conditions - long, slow sweeping hyzer, flip up lazer, or big, high flex shots. So good!

Dynamic Discs Lucid Convict

Straight to slight turn longer fairway driver.

Latitude 64 Opto Culverin

Stable longer fairway driver.

Latitude 64 Gold Spark

Stable shorter fairway driver.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Felon

Most forehand shots, some really windy backhand shots, or when you need something to go left for sure!

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Lucid EMAC Truth

Longer midrange shots that are stable to straight.

Westside Discs VIP Bard

Shorter midrange shots when you need something stable to overstable.

Latitude 64 Opto Compass

Straight midrange shots.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Justice

Forehand upshots and windy upshots. Throw this when you have to go left in a tornado!

Putters

Westside Discs Tournament Shield

Driving putter, overstable upshots, and flex upshots.

Dynamic Discs Classic Blend Warden

Putting putter. Keep a new one to putt and use only for putting and a worn one for straight to understable upshots and putter drives.
