Southside is the best side.

I've still got a bag of discs from the mid-90's somewhere. Haven't chucked one in ages. Used to play the course around the campus at SWT and the course by the river in New Braunfels. High times.

Some of them might be collector worthy, check it out. I have a lot of Vibram, they checked out of disc golf production. Rubber discs, not plastic.
CSB, the Vibram tag you see on your nice boots stands for Vitali Bramani, hence the Vibram tag. He invented rubber climbing soles that were an alternative to leather hobnail boots that gave you frostbite and adios to your toes.

I haven't played in forever, but I could use an outing one of these days


I throw every day if the weather isn’t too extreme. Managed a nice skip ace on hole 8 at Wells Branch. Broke a 4 year ace drought just in an instant. Boom. Roasted.b19ccaa9117bc34575ac5741c1228a87.jpg

Best course in San Marcos is Flying Armadillo

You play almost daily? And you went 4 years without acing one?

Yup. Bounced out of at least 2. Hole 5 at Mary Moore and hole 2 at Rivery.

The Rivery shot sucked, I was already turned around to celebrate , when everyone went, “Awww”.

Used to use Vibram rubber discs. Hit the pin square and bounced out.

Depends on the course. Hit +4 in the dark at Mary Moore tonight. No lost discs.

I use a Westside Hatchet now. Fast, slightly understable, and fast as fuck with my flick.

Can anybody recommend a starter set? I've always wanted to play at the course nearby, but no idea on what to buy.

You can go out in the field behind the store and rip them

Lol...I am guessing disc nation is in Austin? That's a bit of a drive from TXK. Maybe a lil help on a beginner set on amazon? Something my 11 year old and I can use. Just family stuff.

As stated above, I haven't played in quite a while, but looking around on amazon, I'd get this plus another putter (everyone needs a putter, the others y'all can share) 

INNOVA Disc Golf Starter Set - Colors May Vary 160-180g - DX Putter, Mid-Range, Driver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B079581M7S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_5b56Db0V7EAPJ

 

Inova is what I always preferred throwing and it's a good price for this set. Drivers are all different, and you just have to find what works for you. With three options, it's a good start. Your 11 year old likely won't benefit much from having an approach disc. It's not crucial by any means.

 

The only thing I'll say about the above set is that it's their lower end plastic. It won't break, but you'll get nicks in the sides, and eventually they'll fly differently than they did when new. However, they'll last for quite a while. Certainly long enough for you to know whether you like playing and develop a sense of what kind of disc you'll like.

 

Pay attention to the numbers on the top of the disc, and think about what you want differently if you were to upgrade (more speed, less curve, more weight, etc.) Their "star" plastic used to be the higher end discs, and they'd run about $15 per disc iirc. They seemingly last forever and are very durable. I've never retired any that I can remember (not willingly at least...) 15 at searight has claimed a few as its own.
