I think the Blizzard technology is very similar to the original Eagle/Aero technology. Many people, at the time, were either uncertain or downright certain that it would ruin disc golf. While I can't deny that it changed disc golf somewhat, I believed then and now that the distance enhancing technology was and still is essential to the growth and enjoyment of disc golf.
While many shorter courses were made irrelevant to the minority of players who had the power to conquer them, many other players were empowered to drive and make birdies for the first time. I think that is important. It broadens the fun factor for a broader range of players. It also broadens the disc golf constituency/political power necessary to sway city and county planners. I think this is very important.
Yes, it made course installation in smaller areas more of a challenge, but it also provided some impetus for longer and more spectacular courses. There was much fear that we would not be able to secure venues for these larger courses. That did not prove to be the case then, nor do I believe that now.
Spectacular, is a word to remember, I think. Only when we have spectacular courses and spectacular throws on those courses, will we have much outside sponsor interest. Spectacular brings spectators. Spectators brings sponsor interest. At least that is how I see it.
By far, the most important part of any shot is what is happening in the last split second as the disc is pulling itself from your grip. Focus there. It's the key.
