The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
So I was hurling one of my Rocs against a brick wall a few too many times and I guess it got tacoed pretty bad on the same spot multiple times. Anyway it developed a very small crack. I took a hanger and a lighter and burned the plastic back together then sanded it to be the same as the rest of the disc.
Is this legal for pdga play?
Not being allowed to tune a disc Is a fascist rule lol. I see "modifications" as something like flattening out a DX Roc with boiling water and weights, or sanding down to make the outer rim thinner/more aerodynamic. Intentionally throwing a disc on the ground (or at brick walls), to me, is just a shortcut to breaking the disc in. I think the fairest assessment of the situation is that if your disc shows no sign whatsoever of ever being cracked then repaired (and no one knew about it), it would probably go unnoticed but would still technically be illegal.
Out of curiosity, what type of plastic was it?
If you want to get an anny out of the disc without it flexing back in the slightest, or get a super straight shot tunnel shot out of it, it will need some breaking in.
Glow rocs are plenty stable when brand new.
