History

snapper-pierson-morley-fieldFor those of you who do not know, Morley Field Disc Golf course was established in 1978 by Snapper Pierson, who is a course pro and Disc Golf Hall of Fame member. Morley Field, located in the heart of America’s Finest City is one of the world’s original disc golf courses and one of (if not #1) the busiest courses in the world. Located just within a few miles from San Diego International Airport, San Diego Harbor, Coronado beaches and downtown, we are not surprised!

How to Build Your Bag With Drivers

In this video by Avery Jenkins, he teaches you what different qualities and types of drivers you want when building your bag. The first type of driver is a fairway driver, which fly longer than midranges, are easier to throw than fast drivers and are ideal for learning how to master your power grip. The second type of driver is a distance driver, which are medium speed drivers (9-11), medium speed drivers have a medium rim width, are easier for beginners and where they will be most successful throwing! Lastly, he tells you what he thinks makes up the best qualities in a high speed driver and how to select one!

New Customizable Discs!

We want to make sure you are able to customize as many discs as you want. That’s why we’ve added an entire new line of midranges and drivers for you to enjoy! If you’d like to read more about the discs and their features, read on.

Introducing the Midranges: EMac Truth, Gold Line Anchor and the Gold Line Compass

These three midranges are all very versatile and different from one another, which is why we are so excited to release them as new additions together.  You may be familiar with the Regular Truth Disc, which is known for being a “true” straight flying midrange, with a moderate end of flight fade.  Well, the EMac Truth is designed to have an even more stable flight than the regular Truth. The EMac Truth, like its name, is designed to Eric McCabe’s specifications as his signature disc. This disc will hold any line, and carry out a long flight (especially for a midrange) with a predicable fade.

The Latitude 64 Gold Line Anchor

The Latitude 64 Gold Line Anchor is a domey, over-stable midrange. It is great for shorter tee shots and forehand upshots. The Anchor is comparable to the Verdict or Justice, and people either seem to love it or hate it. The Anchor seems to be on the less stable side of the spectrum for an over-stable disc, which is what tends to throw some people off; however, this is the basis of it’s appeal for many others. This disc is useful for shorter drives where a disc is needed to make a long, steady turn. This disc, unlike the EMac  Truth, does not hold a very straight line. Latitude 64’s Gold Line Compass is an all around great midrange you need in your bag. It will throw in whatever direction you send it. This is a great disc for any player because it is neither thin nor deep so it will fit into any hand. This stable and predictable disc was created in a collaboration with professional disc golfer Ricky Wysocki who says, “The compass will make me more confident on the course. Hyzer, straight, anhyzer; I can trust it on every angle”.

Introducing the Drivers from Latitude 64:  Gold Line Spark,  Gold Line Culverin,  Gold Line Diamond, Gold Line Latitude Gladiator, and Dynamic Disc’s Fuzion Sheriff

In the midst of dozens of discs, it can be hard to choose! We are here to differentiate these 6 new drivers in order to help you choose the newest custom Driver to your bag! The Gold Line Spark, David Feldberg’s new signature disc  is extremely dependable and the number one choice if you are looking for stability and control in any condition. This could be a great disc if you live in an area that is faced with a wide range of weather conditions. It is also great for thumbers and forehand shots. The Gold Line Culverin is designed for the more advanced player. If you are experienced, the first part of the flight will be straight and it will finish with a dependable fade. This over-stable control driver is perfect for long s-curves when you want to finish with a strong fade.

The Diamond, The Gladiator, and the Sheriff

Latitude’s 64 Gold Line Diamond is the best driver for beginners or players with a weaker arm. It is designed to have the perfect speed, turn and glide to maximize distance for weaker throwers as well as a nice rim size that allows you to grip it easily. The Gladiator is designed with David Feldberg’s influence to be a high speed disc with great glide and distance potential. It is nice and over-stable, so can also be thrown in windy conditions. Dynamic Disc’s Fuzion Sheriff is a very versatile disc that is used as a great tool for many different shots. The Sheriff can be used for long anhyzers, flex shots, straight distance shots, pure hyzers, distance shots and shot shaping shots. Whether you are new to the sport or have been playing for years, we are confident you can find room for any of these new discs in your collection!

How to Build Your Bag With Putters and Midranges

In this video, 2009 world champ Avery Jenkins will teach you how to improve your game by selecting the most efficient putters and midranges and explain the purpose of each. This video will teach you shots you can use to lower your score with these two types of discs and what to look out for when selecting the best putters and midranges to fit your playing style.
