Disc Golf Lingo–Is it a new language in the works?

Posted by rolltidethrow


So the other day while me and the gang were playing a round at Bowers, it dawned on me that we have a lingo that we use and I am thinking this might be a new potential sub-language to American English, like a different accent or dialect.  I had to share this anthropological discovery.  Some of the new lingo we found are:

Tree Molester/Tree Hugger:  This is what happens when one throws their disc and hits a tree and it actually does them so good, like a skip ace or skip birdie or it puts the disc on the fairway.

Search Party: A term referring to when one golfer throws their disc in the woods or off the path and the next golfer throws the same crappy shot.

Thank you, Baby Jesus, six pounds four ounce swaddling clothes: Referring to a situation where your disc has made a miraculous shot and to pay homage to Talladega Nights.  Make sure you say this when you make a miraculous shot, or I will go off on you like a spider monkey cause I am all jacked up on Mountain Dew!

F, you, you F-ing F:  A term of endearment for your friend when he or she scores an ace.  This is only reserved for those that hit an ace.

When in doubt, throw the Ken Climax: Meaning when in doubt and you need to throw a midrange, throw your 11x KC Roc.

You produce more wood than Ron Jeremy:  When you hit three or more trees on the same shot.  Trust me…this will create a lot of embarrassment if you do this.

Swedish Plastic Whore : Refers to some cat that throws more Lat 64 discs than they really should cause it’s what all the other kids do.

Just a handfull of terms we have added to our vocabulary.  Please feel free to comment on your lingo so we can all benefit from this and our descendants will not be confused when they are watching and listening to our youtube videos in the future.

Discraft Avenger SS Elite Z

I found this disc untagged in a ditch. I threw it ten to fifteen times while practicing and decided it was not a lost disc but someone had thrown it in the ditch like it was a candy bar wrapper or a cigarette butt, TRASH. So now two months later I have revisited this disc at the driving range. This could possibly be the most versatile driver I have thrown. With a moderate amount of hyzer you can hold a long straight line with almost no fade at the end. This disc has replaced my forehand overstable drive when I need to go left and break back to the right. I throw it high and left with a little anhyzer and it will get around the obstacles and flex out back to the left which at that point is straight. With a lot of hyzer and thrown right it will fade like it is an over stable disc but try to flatten out late in the flight. I feel that this disc has endless possibilities. I will never play without one of these in my bag. I just don’t know the weight because discraft doesn’t write it on the bottom.

175 DX Leopard

Posted by holeinone08


I purchased another Leopard since I left my last one at agnes moffit in Houston after purchasing it on the way to play and only throwing it 3 times. Once again I have the 175 g Red DX Leopard. I can throw this disc about 300′ with a little hyzer. Thrown like this, I love the flight path. The disc levels out fast and then holds a straight line before graduallly fading at the end. I have also found this disc to be useful as a roller. I am still a rank below novice when it comes to throwing a roller shot but this disc if thrown left of the target flat or with a little anhyzer will flip over fast and roll straight, then it turns a little right as its speed dies. I am still not putting with it sorry tizz but I love the aviar.
