    Course Comments
    Shelton Springs DGC
    Shelton, WA
    I love this course because it has such a great range of shots that run through the beautiful green forests of Western Washington.
    Jack McLean Park
    Tallahassee, FL
    This technical course plays mostly in the shade of the high tree canopy, with a great use of the park's elevation changes.
    Inverness Disc Golf Park
    Hoover, AL
    Punishing course with lots of elevation and tight lines to hit.
    LHC DiscGolfPark
    Baton Rouge, LA
    Great use of space in a more urban setting.
    Hiller Park
    Biloxi, MS
    This is my current local course. It winds around a large park with lots of water and roads, creating some dangerous OBs, with a good mix of long open holes and short technical holes. Don't be surprised if you meet a snake or catch a glimpse of the resident Alligator!

    Big Z Heat
    My absolute favorite distance driver. Easy to throw, yet reliable. The Heat has unlimited glide, and will follow whatever line I put it on before finishing with a gentle fade. Great for shaping shots in the woods, or for long, slow hyzers in a field. I could play with only this driver!
    Z Lite Crank
    This is probably my most controllable distance driver. I don't throw with a lot of power, so the Z lite makes it easier for me to get the speed I need to get this disc to fly. I use this for my longest drives that I want to finish left, or if it is too breezy for my Crank SS. I really like that I can rely on the integrity of the disc even at the lighter weight.
    Z Crank SS
    This thing bombs! The high speed turn in this disc makes it a great disc to get maximum distance. When I have the space, this is the disc I go to for the longest shot possible. Great for tailwinds as well!
    Z Undertaker
    I love this disc because it is very consistent. I can't crush this disc, and that comes in handy for shorter hyzer lines, and I know it won't turn on me, and it won't go long. I can flick this disc through a gap confidently, and know it will finish with a good amount of fade.
    Z Flick
    Specialty disc for sure! This disc is very overstable for me and has skip for days! I can throw it hard and flat, and it starts fading before it even leaves my hand. I don't always need it, but when I do, I'm glad I have it.
    X and Z Xpress
    I have been throwing the Z Xpress if I need a straighter finish. Flies straight from start to finish, or gets a nice turn if I start it on a slight anhyzer. Easy thrower and feels good in my hand.

    The X Xpress is a more understable, probably considered on the flippy side. I throw with a lot of finesse, so this disc works well for my shot shaping on wooded courses. Flies similar to the meteor, but the fairway version. Great glide for low ceilings, and doesn't require much power. This makes it good for getting as much distance as you can off of an awkward standstill shot.

    Disc Comments
    Z Meteor The Meteor is my favorite mid. Great for wooded courses, it is an effortless thrower, following whatever line I put it on with little to no fade. Best for tunnel shots, I throw it on a slight hyzer and let it flip up to straight and it will hold that line all the way through it's flight path. Very versatile disc!
    Pro D and Big Z Buzzz My Pro D Buzzz gets a lot of use. I use it as a shallow rimmed putter almost. It fits in my hand well for flick scramble shots when a putter would be a little deep for me. It finishes on whatever line I put it on through it's complete flight path.

    My Big Z Buzzz can handle a lot more torque than my Pro D Buzzz. I can throw it hard on a straight line and it will hold all the way down before finishing with a reliable fade. This disc gets a lot of air time.
    Big Z Buzzz OS Reliably overstable mid. I can yank on this disc and be confident it will not turn and I will not go long of my target! I use it for hard hyzer lines as well as for it's distance limiting abilities. I can throw it hard at a basket with O.B. behind it and know I'll stay in bounds.

    Disc Comments
    X Soft APX Perfect, straight, beadless putters. Lots of glide, they follow the line you put them on. I can throw them for upshots if I need an easy anhyzer to finish right, but I try to save them for putting only. They glide easily for jump puts, I love them!
    Jawbreaker and D Challenger These are my main throwing putters. Upshots or off the tee, nice, stable flyers. I can throw them with some force and they fly nice and true with a gentle landing.
    Jawbreaker Zone I have been using this disc a lot for upshots, especially in the wind. Overstable enough to throw into a headwind and not turn, with minimal glide. Great get-out-of-trouble disc for short distances. Nice low profile makes it a good one to flick if needed.
