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?

I was breaking it in. A brick wall seems to work really well, chews on the disc quite a bit.

I lost my understable roc not too long ago and I had been missing it. :(

The pdga police are going to get you!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Glow plastic. Honestly the spot where it was cracked now just looks like any other gouge on the disc.
you guys are all going to PDGA jail.
Hope it works !
Like Champion style Glo?  I could see throwing Star Plastic to break it in (not into brick walls), but Champion plastic really just doesn't break in that well, at least in my experience.  They sacrifice grip for their ablility to retain flight characteristics.  Get a Star San Marino Roc or any flat Roc and move on for tournament play, keep the Glow though for casual play, sweet discs.
Not champion style glow. Regular Flat Top Glow Rocs. And they break in quickly and well if you throw em against a wall. Also I'd say the grip on them is slightly better than DX plastic.
If it's flat top, I'm seriously puzzled.  Those even out of the box fly perfect and just get a little more versatile over time.  They're flippy out of the box to the point where you just throw slight turnovers and it sails straight to the target.  Broke in you can throw good annys but the straight turnover throw will be almost the same just a little sharper turn but the fade stays and pulls it back.  What were you trying to get out of the disc that made you want to break it in like that?

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.

It's all fun and games until you get raped with a champion firebird
lmfao, now sleeping is gonna be tough, I have a champ firebird x-out, and we all know x-outs are extra rapey
