    Bert's Disc Golf Tips
    First, learn how to throw with a stable disc (Avenger SS, Comet or APX) before trying an overstable one. Accuracy is more important than distance. Make sure to follow through after you let go of the disc, and don't try to throw every disc at 110 percent. It's the smooth movement in your rotation that makes the disc fly, and it's not all about power.

    Better ways to practice: After every tournament you found out the hard way what your weak points are. During practice I'm working on those weak spots by training them in almost impossible positions, as long as it takes. Try to think of the impossible and make it happen!!! (learn from every mistake).

    Z Stalker
    (174 gm)
    Superb disc for straight shots without fade. It holds the line you throw it perfectly.
    ESP Force
    (174 gm)
    My maximum distance disc. I can throw it with all the power that I've got and be sure that it won't turn over. Also perfect for sidearm shots, and perfect if you have to beat a headwind. I use a lighter one (170 grams) for rollers.
    ESP Flash
    (174 gm)
    I use beat-up ones for anhyzer drives.
    ESP Predator
    (174 gm)
    When the wind is so hard that you want to go inside, the Predator saves you everytime and delivers accurate drives.
    In The Disc Golf Bag: Midrange
    Disc Comments
    ESP Buzzz
    (174 gm)
    The number one midrange for me. If I could only bring one disc, it would be the Buzzz. I use it for everything up to 300 feet.
    ESP Comet
    (174 gm)
    Even at slow speed, it will stay in line for ever. Throw it a bit harder and it will give you a smooth turn. Great accuracy disc.
    D Drone
    (175 gm)
    When the wind is blowing hard the Drone helps me out with perfect midrange shots.

    FLX Challenger
    (174 gm)
    This is for me the perfect putter. A bit overstable, and therefore great if you give it a bit more power. The FLX plastic makes it perfect to hold.(it feels so great its almost hard to let go).
