The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf


And away we go...

I'm not saying the other manufacturers disc names are stupendous, but Discraft has a knack.

Of course, some of these require a certain "perspective" to be considered "tasteless," for a lack of a better term.

 But for some disc names it aint hard...

Yes, the STALKER is pretty creepy.

The REAPER & MARAUDER not much better.

Then the PREDATOR. 

TRACER (as in bullet or phone call)

CRUSH, Kill, Destroy...

And of course, zee NUKE. (Can't wait to play the Japan Open with one of these)

 Grim stuff.

FLASH always meant a guy in a raincoat to me.


Chicka-Bow-Wow Baby...

Don't forget to go out and CATCH A BUZZZ !

Excellent explanation. It's all innocent enough.
If you call a rose by any other name, does it not smell the same?
I think lightning discs has the right idea. No one should be offended by #1 roller. Dont like the discs but they have perfectly newtral names.
#3 Slice offends me to the core!
Hmm, now there's a "what came first, the chicken or the egg" moment. Who provoked who first? Who called the other a bad name, who threw the first punch?
If I see that my next door neighbor has designs for the other 12 houses on my block, including mine, do I sit back and say nothing, do nothing?
Yeah, the "civilian" casualties that resulted from the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were tragic, but in hindsight, if we had to do it all over again, how many American soldiers would we be willing to sacrifice in place of those civilians that died from the bombing? What's an acceptable number...ten thousand, 100 thousand, more?
In 1945, was the value of non-military personnel worth more than military-personnel? Should we have traded one Japanese death from the bombing for the life of an American soldier? One-for-one?
Technically, when you look at the numbers, the casualties from the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings pales in comparison to the casualties suffered by other nations involved in the war...
China 3-4 million military, 7-16 million civilian (where's the outrage for the Chinese civilians?)
Dutch East Indies 3-4 million civilian
Germany 5.5 million military, 940K to 2.7 million civilian
India 1.5-2.5 million civilian
Philippines 500k-1 million civilians
Poland 2.3-2.5 million civilians
Soviet Union 8.8-10.7 million military, 12.2-14.1 million civilians
United States 416K military, 1,700 civilians (boy it's a good thing the Japanese were unsuccessful in reaching our homeland)

And then there's Japan - 2.1 million military, 580K civilian

Oh and don't forget the 6 million Jews/civilians.

That's at least eight countries that had from two to 32 times the number of civilian deaths as the Japanese. And for all those other countries that suffered such horrendous civilian casualties, it didn't take a nuclear bomb, just good old-fashioned conventional warfare.

It's important to keep things in perspective. I nuked a pocket-pizza for a Japanese co-worker of mine last week...he didn't seem offended in the least.
I dont have a core so i wouldn't know.
Call Discraft and give them your sagely advice for better names.....

Well, that seemed to be fun for all.

Well, almost all.

It seems some Discrafters may have been offended by this discussion.

That was not my intention.

I try not to take myself or life too seriously.

A sense of humor helps this immensely.

Thanks for all the input guys & gals!
