The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

We have seen a few discussions asking for the best straight driver or the best anhyzer disc or the best roller disc, etc.

Of course the answer is : it depends on who is throwing it. An understable disc in my hands might be overstable in yours. A disc which was overstable for you last year might be a straight flier as your power improves. A disc which is worthless to me might be perfect to you.

Now that candy plastic is common in the market a disc basically lasts until you lose it. Even if a disc sat in a box or a car trunk or outside for months or years it will still fly the same and keep the same flight characteristics for years of use.

So if I were in the market for a disc to fit in a particular spot in the bag...And it I wasn't sponsored and therefore able to walk in the factory and try whatever I wished...rather than buy new discs hoping for the perfect fit... I would host a Disc Trading Party.

The average frisbee golf addict has a bunch of discs gathering dust, including, probably, you. If you got together with a few of your buddies you might acquire some hidden/abandoned gems.

I think that this is just another way for Mark to covertly fish for Rattlers.
...Mark, this is all old hat. In Fond du Lac, we host this party every week, its called: Tues night leagues. :-)

The breakneck pace at which disc companies are releasing the "Newest, fastest, left-est, most-magical" discs forced me to the realization that I will no longer buy a disc until I've thrown one of it. Luckily for me, my friends have no such convictions.

Sometimes though I have bought the lastest and greatest, knowing that if I don't like it (and lately I haven't) it's a great trading chip because it's in demand for trades. I usually end up getting one or two of my favorite familiar discs this way. Hmm...now I'm enable disc-aholics with that last idea. Oh well...there seems to be no real cure anyway.
actually its "a lot" ;-)

Seems so simple...I can't figure out why this is the first time I've heard this. Great idea!
hey now,sounds like a great idea Mark.A new 'spin" on the old TupperWare party theme,ha.Ever throw one of your mom's lids from one of the larger salad bowls?Peace
Ha! I'm all for it! It'd be like a big tupperware party with nothing but the lids! Five bucks to anyone who can get one to "burp"!
This is a great idea for a local club to do. I always hear people talking about selling/trading discs in small groups around our weekly mini's, but a disc trading party would be awesome!!
