Three Things to Consider Before Buying a Flying Disc

In a pool or on a frolf course, a disc is a terrific distraction when the weather is nice outside.

Hammers, scoopers, bear claws and biscuits are just a few of the more advanced throws you can make with a flying disc, but there’s nothing wrong with simply tossing one back and forth, a cold drink in one hand, and great conversation in between throws. When you’re ready for more than a round of disc catch, you might consider these three ways to increase the fun and exercise of flying disc play.
