More Than a Putter, Less Than a Driver - Master Midrange in Disc Golf

In the world of disc golf, midrange discs hold a special place because they offer a versatile and balanced combination of control, accuracy, and distance. Where putters can only reach certain distances, and drivers can fall short, the midrange discs come into play. That 100-ft gap might seem like a easy task for your putter, but when you need just a bit more skip, a midrange is what you need. Alternatively, there could be a 450-ft dead straight hole that requires the finesse of a midrange disc. Understanding the specific strengths and characteristics of your midrange can really improve your style and play. Sounds intriguing?

Midrange discs are like the Swiss Army knives of disc golf. They work well for various types of shots, whether you need a short drive or a precise approach. This adaptability makes them a go-to choice for a variety of situations on the course.

Simplifying Your Disc Golf Midrange Bag is Key

The universe of midrange discs in disc golf is vast and diverse. from overstable to understable and speed four to six, you can find an array of sizes, shapes and flight characteristics. However, keeping your mid-range bag straightforward can help you maintain your pace and peace on the course.

Check out how the ultimate pro Drew Gibson has built his bag:

Throwing a single disc exceptionally well can contribute to a more consistent game play, ensuring a similar flight pattern for each shot. There's a time and place for experimenting, but when the game is on the line, sticking with what you know can make all the difference.

Choosing the Right Mid Range for your Style

Just like shoes, every mid-range disc doesn't fit everyone. You need to find one that feels comfortable in your hand and suits your style. An overstable mid range and an understable mid range serve different purposes, and using them properly can greatly enhance your game. The rule of thumb is, use the disc for what it's designed to do. This principle will not only optimise your performance but also save you from unnecessary frustration. If you want to see this in action, join Pulsea Disc Golf Academy and start learning today!
