The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Would you play an old school day?
Use discs from the past, just to see how well you would play with "old school" discs.
Remember when Climo used to win driving with a 'dx Gazelle?'
Yes play without "star" or "elite" or "champion" plastic?
Throw a hammer, Lightning P52, 44 mold.
How well would you do?
Or do you even recognize the names?

As long as I could use my Innova Coupe! I would do pretty good.
I miss my floating, hypercolor Innova Dolphin. Wish I had it back or could get another one.
Leopards are still one of my go to discs. Just put a Jaguar back in the bag on Saturday also.
You would have to define old school a little better there old man!!! HAHAHA
Yo youngster,
Old plastic, got any, yo, throw any yo, dude. Yo.

No I don't think I do... The only 'old' one I have is that old green dx roc I got a Tusc. I don't know if it's actually old or not, but Jamie was telling me that it was... either way great disc...
By the way... you need to work on your 'YO YO's'....

if you define "old school" as gazelle era plastic i would imagine most of todays players would do better than they think they would- other than a little more speed there isn't that much difference between gazelles, cyclones, whippets, etc and today's flavor of the month. if you were to define it as pre-viper (first radically overstable disc) that would change the playing field considerably.
I think I'd do ok throwing my old Eclipse and Stealth, and I know I could still knock down some putts with my Hands Putter, good thread brother.

Although I wouldn't be able to throw them today for fear of breaking them. Man, it's below freezing in North Texas today, they'd break like a candy cane. LOL
i still remember my raven i got back before there was "dx" "Pro" "Champion" and "Star." Even before the "Pro Line!" Back then, you just had "Discs"
Have a few leopards and a gazelle. Do champion stingrays count as old school? Only been playing for about three years so all DX discs are old school to me.
Sure I would !! I'll give you my address and you can send me a few..... J/J !
All I have is a MINT first run Aero (Flying Eye Stamp). I don't think that'll hit the chains anytime in the near future.
