so in the course of my learning how to throw, my tried and true DX Beast has become a bit dinged up(ok maybe that was an understatement)... is it ok to do some minor sanding to it? I mean it seems logical to be able to as long as I'm not jacking up the flight, I just want to make sure that once I get to playing with others that it wont be frowned upon.
thanks in advance, The new guy.
I used to sand burrs off of my DX discs all the time, Especially after I had on cut me. Sanding a bit is not a problem, Making Holes, Cracks, or otherwise altering a disc is bad. :)
You can sand, but I think the towel trick works better. Take a towel, preferably a microfiber, and fold it over. Then use a finger to rub the towel vigorously on the damaged edge of the disc. The heat of the friction will slightly melt the platic and burrs and small cuts will magically disappear. A local pro demonstrated this to me and I really love the results.
Never heard that one! Thanks for the Tip Rudy. :)
ha! that is a fantastic idea, the things in this world I dont know never cease to amaze me!
Thanks! I'll have to try that towel trick.
Let me know what you think of the results! :D
This works like a dream!
(Big Smile) Thank Al Hermosillo, he taught me!
DX only lasts so long and I end up replacing my DX discs a couple of times each year. It will change their flight until they just don't fly the same anymore. Maybe your disc isn't at that point yet or you like it being a bit beat up and "broken in". Right now I believe that the only DX plastic that I have in my bag is a DX TeeBird. It is probably the third or fourth one that I have used this year. I love the way DX flies but it just won't last.
