yeah i always heard that most people let the disc wear over time from use. also certain plastics will wear down faster then others. like dx plastic doesn't last as long as star or champion plastic, but i've noticed the problem with dx plastic is people usually aren't looking to trade for them, since they like the grip of pro,star, or champion plastic. but im not sure about plastics for discraft, i think that elite z is the equivalent of innova's champion plastic.
John E. McCray a fews ago bought a Pegasus from me and immediately threw it against a tree a few times.
He said he wanted to break it in.
I wouldn't recommend this, just use it.
Heard about people microwaving them, not sure how long. Dishwashers.
My old roomate and I were "Hanging Out" at our house and we had a wonderfrul Idea to put some discs in the dish washer to clean them and it took the Hot Stamps of some of them. So if you are just "Hanging Out" and you think you have a great iidea stop and rethink it first. LOL.
I just reccommend using them to break them in. If they are to overstable try something a bit more understable see how that works for you.
Careful what you throw your disc against if you are going to deliberately break in your disc. Trees are probably the best, but beware! I hit a giant oak tree with a dx cheetah (for rollers) and it cut a 1/4" slice off one side, nice and clean. I don't mind cuts and dings on a disc, but this was too much for me and it went in the trash. So, don't throw a disc against a tree with big, hard bark strips.
I just throw it into shape. What I'll do is add it to my bag, but not use it as my primary disc. After I throw the primary disc I'll then throw the new one (time perminting). I try and do it at least 7 to 8 times around until I feel it is ready.
