Designing Your Own Frisbee

Just noticed you seem to use frisbee’s with your "shrednow" logo/design thing on them in the Secrets DVD. How did you get these? I’d love to play with a frisbee with my design on it. Any info would be much appreciated.

Paganello 2004

A huge internatioinal invasion of freestylers converged on Rimini, Italy for the 2004 Acrobatic Paganello.
New players from Israel entered their first big competitions. Last year’s rookies from the FPA Worlds
took on the role of seasoned veterans. Top-ranked players mentored the newcomers and all the participants collaborated to put on a great show.

Gary Auerbach, Paul Kenny and Reto Zimmerman won the Co-op division over 8 other teams, winning the final by 6 points over Clay Collera, Tom Leitner and Pipo Lopez. Seventeen teams entered the pairs division. Clay Collera and Tom Leitner came out on top, defeating Paul Kenny and Reto Zimmerman by four points.
In addition to Collera, Leitner, Kenny and Zimmerman, Puerto Rico’s Pipo Lopez and Roma’s Alessandro Damiano and Edoardo Favorini made both finals.
Fabio Sanna and Stefano Mestroni won a special qualifier into the Semifinals, outscoring ten other teams.

Against the Spin??

Just fishing for tips on nail delaying against the spin. My intuition says to circle my finger in the opposited direction from with the spin (i.e. – finger circle counter for a clock spinning disc), but I’m not having much, if any, success that way as yet. Just more practice? Or is there ‘something else’ to working against the spin?
Thanks in advance!! And THANKS FOR SHREDNOW!!

Wham-O’s Careless Marketing

I was in Sportmart tonight and noticed a big display of flying discs, a model I had never seen before. I checked it out and it turned out to be one of the endless stream of light-up discs that are sold every year. Big whoop!

Then I noticed that Wham-O had redesigned the 140g All-Sport model and both the disc and the package actually looked good. Understated and sporting rather than flashy and toylike. If only I had walked away then and there.

Rankings: April 2004

As we progress through 2004, the Open Rankings will show the continued international development of freestyle. With more European events this year than ever before, European players will have an opportunity to make a big splash on the rankings.

In the meantime, European players feel a rankings setback as two Italian events from 2002 fall off the rankings this month. Points from the 2002 Italian National Championships and Acrobatic Paganello expire this month, wreaking havoc on the rankings of Italian players. At the top, Clay Collera dips from 12 to 18, Lorenzo Apriani falls from 16 to 31, and Fernando Botrugno falls from 21 to 46.
