After 3 years of inactivity, I am making my triumphant return! I just have 2 problems I can't figure out. How to become the throwing machine I once was, and what a decent pair of cleats is!
1) How do you get your throws back?
I have no one to throw with! Am I stuck running a sprint, throwing the disc, then throwing again? Are there any throwing drills I can do by myself?
2) I need molded 3/4 cleats. Nike stopped making the Speed TD in molded 3/4! I already bought a pair of Speed D 3/4 screw ins, but I need something for hard ground. Any suggestions for a replacement? I need a toe spike, and hightops to support my fat arse. Other than that, I have no idea what is the current gold standard, non vapors cleat anymore. (no soccer cleats, that's a great way for a big dude like me to roll an ankle) I've been looking at the Huarache, but I really cannot find a single review from anyone who plays ultimate! Any other suggestions?
Thanks for the help!
