The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I would like to know the different styles of breaking in new plastic. I have been told to bend the edge around the disc over and over. Been told to take it and beat it on a tree. Some just take them and let time do the work. do you speed up the break in time. One guy puts new discs on the seat of his car and sits on them....sorry but my discs would fly like shit LOL.

Perfectly said!!!!
That is a good statement i play four to five days a week
But the problem being is my bag and all my discs got stolen out of my truck ....and i have a club championship to play in one week with out a lot of money to spend on equipment so i got some copys of discs i loved but they were real beat and i knew they were going long, right, left but the new ones are pretty stiff and i think i would set the record to break them in playing
Break it in on the chains- smooth, even wear with no serious scratches or permanent dents or warps.
Normal play...and keep in mind....with today's variety of discs, you can pick discs that will do what you expect them to do off the shelf....The guys who are constantly trying to break in discs in artificially....are probably throwing the wrong discs..either by weight or mold.
So true!
Well the disc i have are new ones of the ones of the ones that got stolen
But i know they will get to a point that they are just as good as the old ones that are gone
I know some of the advice i was gave to me was from a tour pro so it cant be all bad but some was from dudes that wack there disc and mabey there heads on trees that you have to take with a grain of salt
tour pro's give all kinds of bad advice. You may be lucky to have found one that gives good advice.
First put the disc in the oven at 450 for 1 hour. Then put the studded snow tires on the car and run the disc over a few times. Follow that with an acid bath and you should be good to go. Just kidding.

I find that Star plastic is very good and stays that way. The only stuff that I have that really changes is the DX TeeBird and so I just end up buying a few of those every year. A little wear on those is good but too much and they don't come back. They definitely have a sweet spot for wear. The one that I use now is really good.

Sidewinders are good right away. Love the Star TeeBird as well. The only Champion plastic I own is a Banshee.
acid is not for discs, it's for your brain. Star Teebird's are the greatest. Do you think they have a long lasting sweet spot? I sure do.
I usually just let the disc break in on it's own, but a lot of times I'll just bend the rim a little on known overstable discs.
