The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
After the loss of 4 of my favorite disc and a tree that all but broke my putter, I have all these fresh new disc in the bag :(.
Anyway, now I have to go back and break in all these disc again.... Im half tempted to just find a parking lot and start hyzer spiking them.
Don't really have a point to this thread but figure some of you have had this pain in the past.
I've doubled a blanked over a brick wall and thrown new discs at it. It should help to break it in without scratching it up. More ideas here: http://discgolfer.ning.com/forum/topics/breaking-in-plastic?xg_sour...
So when the disc breaks in get a new disc. This way you can always get the flight you want out of a disc. I guess to each his own but waiting for a disc to break in doesnt sound like fun and takeing away from practice time.
I won't kill it on pavement, just want to lol. Yeah I play with Star for the most part, and the break in process just takes a little to long for me. The bad thing is most disc break in from hitting trees, so I have to play bad to get the disc I want lol.
as to what Brad said, One lost disc was my Wraith that I used for skip shots and rollers. It is a disc that has to be broken in because its hard two buy two that fly the same. Don't know why the wraith is so testy but it is what it is.
Also as you said about the backups I lost my main sidewinder and both its back ups. So im with you on keeping them in rotation so you always have one if you lose one. I was just unlucky enough to lose them all.
The idea of buying a brand new disc that will do what you want, is right to a point. I can go buy a vulcan to replace my flip disc, but the added speed will change how I throw it. Or like with the wraith, it has been used for about two years now and I know what its going to do. what distance its gonna hook up at, how much power I need to get the right kind of skip. So a disc like that wraith, I just cant go out and buy new.
I have a couple of Avengers that I have been trying to beat up a bit. I have been throwing them for Forehand Rollers whenever possible.
