The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

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.

yeah, I guess I'm hanging on because I'm really comfortable throwing this one. hopefully the confidence that I have with this disc will spread to others as I play more.

So why not step up and buy better plastic.  Star and Champion plastic take a likin and keeps on tickin.   Unless you are hitting Coquina rocs, they will take a far better beating than any DX plastic.   You will also get better distance with the new plastic.   They will fly farther and give you better control on placement drives.  Try a Destroyer and see if you drives don't get you closer to the pin.   But the putting part is up to you.  Again, get away from DX, get a Star Big Bead Aviar (get 3 or 4 of same weight) and see how much better your over all game gets.  GB #554

yeah I recently bought a surge and as of today that's become my go-to driver.. I've started buying every new disc in star plastic or an equal from other brands. I like the feel of star over champ personally.

I used to light fire to drinking straws and let the burning plastic weld itself to any chunky spots. Of course this is completely illegal and I do not condone using these discs in tournaments ;o))

Sure, totally legal.  Minor sanding won't affect the flight of the disc, just how comfortable it is to throw.


As you play with a disc it breaks in, becomes less stable and darn near always becomes more valuable to the player (if they know enough to take advantage of it).


By playing with a disc the rim starts to bend downward (even if by so small a margin you can't tell by looking at it).  Also the bottom of the rim (where a bead is at if the disc has one) starts to wear away.  These changes are what makes the disc less stable.  Nicks or gouges in the rim don't have much impact on stability unless the rim also becomes warped by the impact.


In terms of playing with other players, Ron Suir, you should do so promptly.  The fastest way to learn is to play with better players.  It is hard to figure out everything on your own.

Sweet.  What can I get with 1000 internets?

 I think you can redeem them for 3000 MORE internets. I read it somewhere on the internet.
