My Actifit Report Card: July 8 2021
We played disc golf at our favorite local eighteen basket course. I did not do as well as yesterday but I stilled ended up with a win by one point with a +2 score.
I got my PDGA kit today for registering as an amateur disc golfer. There was a really nice looking MVP Relay disc in the kit. It has ended up on the top of my desk along with a spare Fireball disc for now.
The Relay has a really nice looking turtle graphic on it and it is almost too pretty to throw. It is also a bit light at 156 grams. I suspect this disc is going to out flip my flippy 169 gram Crave disc. I will have to toss it around a bit but I'm not sure if it is going to find its way into my bag. I do like lighter discs in this speed rating so I will have to see how it flies.
I like to use lighter discs like these instead of midrange discs for some longer place throws. The lighter weight makes it easier to power down a lot and still get the disc to the target. I've noted that the harder I throw a disc the less reliably I can make it go where I want it to. Really light discs are a lot more difficult to control in the wind though but they have less ground action and generally stay closer to where they land.
There was also a really nice mini marker disc which I will be making use of.
This pond was at the disc golf course in the Colorado mountains where we recently played at 8 thousand feet or so:
I liked the way the trees looked in the reflections in the water.
