Gander Team Recommendations
Ryan (advanced): I am an avid disc golfer; I try to get out to the course a couple times a week. On the days when I can't make it out to the course, you'll probably find me putting in the backyard with my kids.
Being a backhand only thrower, the Prodigy M4 is one of my favourite discs. It's under stable flight can give me the same shot as a forehand. A newer M4 is going to fly dead straight with almost no fade, while a beat-in M4 gives me buttery smooth turnovers and deadly straight hyzer flips. I usually have multiple of these discs in my bag at different stages of wear.
On the faster side of things, I rely on the Discmania PD. For me, it hits the sweet spot between accuracy and max distance. It has the right amount of over stability to be extremely reliable and trustworthy, while still being able to rip down the fairway and give me good distance. (P.S. This is the best thumper disc I've ever thrown)
Julie (beginner): I go disc golfing every now and then with Calvin and we do some putting on our practice baskets at home. Some of the putting games we play are addicting and it sure is annoying missing when I'm not that far away!
My favourite putter is the Discmania P2. It is easily the most comfortable putter I've used and gives me the best chance during those addicting putting games :).
The fairway driver that I prefer off the tee is the Discmania Essence. While I'm still learning how to control discs, this one goes where I want most often, without heading too far to the left or the right. Since my sons can throw as far as I can (forehand and backhand for Pete's sake!), I've begun throwing forehands instead of always throwing backhand. The Essence made it easy for me to learn forehand and it's fun to actually gain some distance on my drives.
Calvin (advanced): I've been playing disc golf for about four years and right now I try to get out and play about once a week. I have always been a big fan of the Discraft line-up, so both my suggestions are from them.
The first disc I recommend is one I've been using since very early on. It's their over stable approach disc, the Discraft Zone. This disc is amazing for approach shots using forehand or backhand. It is extremely reliable and does really well in any kind of wind.
Another staple in my bag is the Discraft Zeus. This driver is stable enough to give a reliable flight every time and is great for in the wind. With enough speed and some Anhyzer, I can also turn this disc over to increase distance. I also find myself using it for shorter skip shots under trees or around corners. It's money!
