What is standard issue disc golf equipment these days for glow disc golf? Just a cursory search of the web shows some black lite led flashlights, glow disc golf discs, some low cost LEDs, some “league quality” LEDs (aeropod, Hole in One) small xylume sticks, some really cool looking glowing chains for the disc golf basket, and of course the PDGA approved disc.
As many of you know the BDGA recently hosted the 20th Annual Sizzler. Joe Holmes was in charge of trophies this year. Read another great HOW-TO from disc golf addiction. We love feedback.

Read on to see how Joe made trophies for 6 – 9 dollars a piece!!
“How I Added Another Shot to my Disc Golf Arsenal”
Steve Dodge sent me a 168 gram X-Link Medium Lace by Vibram Disc Golf in the mail. This is Disc Golf Addiction’s first disc golf equipment review.
Forehand: After reading other reviews of this disc I was expecting the Lace, by Vibram Disc Golf, to be a bit more stable. I would say it is stable enough to come back after I turn it over. I discovered this by accident when I tried to flick (in my case I use a right hand forehand, or RHFH) and attempted a skip hyzer around a corner, but I released the disc with the outside edge a little high and did a very nice looking turnover shot through the trees instead. For years I have been trying to do a RHFH and was only marginally successful. I was so bad I rarely used it. Now I have added 100 feet to my disc golf forehand shot, and the Vibram Lace does a long graceful S-Curve. This newly acquired distance will take getting used to, but I am convinced that with practice I can throw even farther with more accuracy. The Lace/Vibram Logos makes a handy non-slip location for your thumb also! Continue reading
