The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

About 17 years ago, two guys came to the college I was attending and put on a flying disc show. I was asked to video the show and in exchange they'd let me have a disc. At this point, my friends and did not own our discs, we borrowed the schools. After much consideration, and no real knowledge to go on, I choose the Tracer from Discraft. It's orange and has a weight of 177. It's really dinged up now and but still flies well, when I throw it well. That's my oldest disc. What's yours?

all my old disc are still not even a yeasr old ... but ask me again in 10 years :))
I played a round this morning with a guy who used a "85 softie ?" as a putter. It was normal golf disc diameter but looked like an old frisbee, made by Whammo. His long range driver was a beat DX Stingray and he beat me by four strokes on a course he had never played before.

Yeah that's what he said an 86 softie, his looked pretty old. Said he has been playing for 25 years.

I play quite a bit with Rob Bryan #5012, he still uses an 86 softy, and some of his money discs are still Whamo. He's a fantastic player who's been playing DG for 20 years or more. Good stuff ... he's wicked with the softy.

I played a round a few weeks ago with a guy who was throwing a glow Stingray with the regular 90's production stamp, so that disc was at least older than the "Throw in the Dark" stamps. He was also still throwing a Wham-O 44, which is a version of the Viper with grip rings on top that Innova made for Wham-O in the early 90's. He was a friend of Bob Waidmann's, and Bob was throwing rollers with an original Lightning P-38 and putting with an old original beadless Aviar like he has since I've known him. Sometimes Bob has an original Champion Eagle in his bag, but he seems to prefer that old P-38. Usually I'm the guy with the "old plastic" bag since I still throw Rocs with the full big bird stamp, Banshees with the star stamp and tournament plastic Cyclones. These guys were making me feel like a noob.
Probably the oldest disc I have that I can date is an Aviar XD with an "Oklahoma Disc Golf 1988" stamp.
The oldest golf disc I have in my bag is a Champion Eagle, which I bought new in 1983, but I have as a backup marker disc a blue Wham-O raised letter mini, which came out in the late 1960s.
My oldest disc is a Blue Super Pro from 1974.
Oh , wait ...................................I do have a Original Frisbee Pin tin if that counts !!!!!
I found a softie by wham-o when I was playing in a tournament 16 years ago. I still have it, but don't use it as much as my Aero.
Didn't Discraft also make a flat disc called the crusier ?
