There are a couple techniques when driving those long distance shots. Sidearm, Backhand and overhand shots depend on a few different elements. You should always keep a few things in mind when preparing for any shot. The wind, the slope of the ground and where obstacles are just a few elements to think about before driving. Pro Jeremy Koling provides information on the three most common techniques of distance driving. Here are some tips on how to grip your disc, and throw a distance drive:
Video yourself throwing each shot and make note on how you can improve your positioning.
Sidearm shots are typically more successful with a more stable disc. Start by choosing a stable disc to drive with. Once you get the hang of it chance to different discs
Start by mastering your foot placement. Once you get your stance, work on your swing and wrist snap. Finally add the foot placement and swing together to create a rhythm that works for you.
When designing your own custom discs and frisbees, there really aren’t any rules. That’s the beauty of being an artist! You can create anything you’d like and call it art. For some people creating and designing is fun and easy, while for others, it can be stressful and aggravating. The goal of this website, is to make players happy with what they throw. We want Disc Golfer’s, Ultimate Players, and even casual beach throwers to look down at their custom disc and smile with joy, as they throw something THEY have created. So here are some tips in designing your custom disc or frisbee:
Choose fun photos to upload on to your disc. Your disc will stand out from the crowd with personalized photos. Using our customizer, you can literally upload any photo from your phone or desktop, to your discs! Just make sure they are nice quality and high resolution. If you’re not really a picture taker, not to worry. We have an extensive library available with various photos to choose from or you can choose from the web. Pictures are a great way to customize your disc because it shows your personality and interests. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Personalize Your Custom Disc
Large corporations, and their brand names are everywhere. They essentially control how we buy and what we buy. Custom discs and frisbees give you the opportunity to break away from sporting a brand name. We urge you to create your own brand! Personalize your disc by writing your name on it with our unique font library! Create a logo for yourself using your own initials! The opportunities are endless when you design your own disc. Whatever you do, make it YOURS.
Have Fun with it!

It was a beautiful sunny January weekend here in San Diego at Morley Field. My friend and I were having a great day playing some disc golf. Everything was going great, we were at hole 4 and a threw a forehand drive, soon it veered right and went into the bushes. As I ran over laughing to pick up my disc I see a man heading straight in my direction. I knew exactly what was happening here, he had mistaken his disc for mine, immediately I knew I didn’t personalize my disc in any way and by the look in his eye and rage in his step, I knew it would be a tough convince.
How it all Started
When I went to pull the disc out he rudely jumped in front of my face and claimed the disc was his. It was a Pink Latitude 64 Gold Line Ballista. I had just gotten the disc, so like a rookie I forgot to put my name on it or personalize it in anyway. He was apparently borrowing it from a friend who didn’t have a name on it either (of course). I told him that both my friend and I watched the disc from the time it left my hand to the bush, but he wouldn’t budge. He told a long drawn out story about how his friend would “kill him” if he didn’t bring her disc back. He obviously needed this disc more than I did. I told him he could just have it and this is the moment where I decided I wasn’t going to let this happen again. Sure, I could continue to buy popular discs and write my name on them, but what happens when I run into another Kira?
Luckily, I stumbled across Fly Discs and and I knew my personalized disc problems would be solved forever! Fly Discs allows you to completely personalize your disc, which is exactly what I needed. First, you choose your own background color, gradients, patterns and stock backgrounds. Next, you add your own text and photos. You can bet my name and number is clearly printed on all of my discs. Having my own personalized collection doesn’t only make me value my discs so much more but I feel as if I’m throwing them with integrity because I know they are personalized just for me and my name is literally on every shot I make. If you are a disc golf player, you need a to personalize a Fly Disc ASAP!
