I've been told not to throw this disc, "it's worth money", " I wouldn't throw that on this hole!".
I love this disc and am told tons about it except what it's worth. Maybe because the other thing I hear is "What do you want for it?" I'm I a sucker,? SHould I continue to throw?
I've been some kind of lucky to have lost this disc twice and have been soo lucky to get back. One time weeks after by a friend. The other four months later walking though water after another disc. (today)
Yes, yes, some knid of luck.

I throw several discs that some would deem as collectors discs. I have a "pro firebird" one of the ones that are made with champion plastic before they called it champion plastic! I lost it several times too and it always finds its way back!

Some would say the 2000 flx drone LE that were made are collectors too. I have two in my bag that I throw many times per round and two more brand new ones that will replace the ones in the bag if I should lose one.

finally I have a crystal flx challenger from the memorial last year, only 400 were made. I use it all the time. I actually have two of these too!

Oh yeah first run star destroyers too!
A disc is worth to you what you think it is worth. A disc is worth to others what they think it is worth. Worth is in the eye of the beholder. I know this sounds vague because it is vague.

That being said you must be crazy to throw a CE Valk on a water hole! Nah, just kidding. The market value for that disc (Ebay value) depends on its weight, condition and run. Just guessing, since I don't collect these, maybe $50 used. Others on this site will know the market better.

But if you are willing to trade it for a cold beer on a hot day or a ride to a tourney or a buy-in for Texas Hold-em, then there you go. If you ace with it 3 times this coming year you might not be willing to sell it for hundreds.

Any disc you memorize will be worth a lot to you and you will cry when you lose it.
THX Mark and nibs.
sir Ellis, you are right. I've been a fool to toss this across water but you are also right about its worth to me. Anything with the distance of 600 plus is worth a great deal.
This Mark guy sure sounds like he knows what he's talking about. =) I would say keep it, you sound like you like it, it seems to like you because it always comes back. Just don't endanger your favorite bird, they will drowned. Find a somewhat similiar disc just to use in those risky situations. Like Mark said you will be beside yourself if you loose it for good, even if you go out and spend $100 on a new one it will never be the same in your mind. That disc will last for a long time if you treat it right, that being USE IT!

I lost a CE Valk that was dyed in a square-patterned American flag in the water on the temp holes at The Memorial a few years back. Sigh. It was a beautiful disc.

But I'm with those who say you should throw the cool discs. I've got one of the putters with Steady Ed's ashes in them that I carried and made 500 out of 500 attempted putts with. I may put it back in my bag again when the snow is gone. But I won't use it outside of 6 feet :)
500 out of 500 attempted putts within 6 feet? ........................Do we have video on that? J/K! Ha!
i agree with mike still use it but not on the water holes but the ones you don't have to worry about find somthing that flies
close to it and use that for the risky buiness
agreed, use with discression, and do not use it if it is at all cold outside, im in FL and it was chilly and my friend shattered his CE Valk just like that against a tree, probably 3 weeks ago...

Now that's devastating ...if you lose it in the water...at least there's a shimmer of hope it will come home.
That cold in Florida to shatter a disc? WoW! Maybe it was just too adjusted to the warm weather, or brittle from all the heat and sun. Lol. R.I.P. CE Valk
I have one of these...orange...was one of my favorites but I retired it a few years ago.
Come to Wisconsin, it hasnt been above freezing in over a month, it couldnt have been too cold to crack the disc down there, I'm sure just brittle from use.

On the note of the original topic, let it fly, if this disc will bring you a lower score than its better than any market value you can get for it
