The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Well, with the Plastic collection set to hit 7 discs by the end of next week, I've decided that I want an actual Bag. I'm looking forward to visiting Sun King Discs here in Sarasota on Saturday. I think the Innova Standard bag looks like just what I need for a reasonable price. I imagine I'll have trouble leaving with just the bag.....Maybe 8 discs by end of next week haha.

Enjoy! I still need to check out the throw shop. I'm only 30 minutes away, and have not gone yet.
I have not tried the Innova bags. I have used Fade Gear Tourney bag which has worked great. Cool colors too!

What discs are you using/thinking about getting. You can never have enough mid-ranges and putters!
Well I'll be working the Throw Shop myself tomorrow from 3-6:30p
I'm thinking about looking at some Putters since I only have one right now.(A Star Aviar Driver)I initially put the horse before the carriage when I ordered my first three discs by ignoring the comment concerning the Innova Xcal definitely not being a beginners disc.. well I swallow my pride and admit that I'll grow into it, I find the Wraith to be much more beginner friendly. I had a white one and lost it at the park last week, so the replacement in orange shall arrive tomorrow. I also picked up a Star TL and Star Max as a 2 for one on e-bay brand new for $22.07 including shipping. So far as mid-range I picked up a Star Gator in that first batch of three along with the Xcal and the Aviar Driver Putt & Approach. And just now right this minute, I'm winning my first Roc on E-bay.. It's a Star San Marino in orange.
If you're going to buy a putter, look at a a wizard or voodoo in evolution plastic... They won't disappoint...I recommend the fade bags as well, just as good and quite a bit cheaper than the innova bags
Nice job on ebay. I did the same thing when I started, getting overstable discs. I am finishing my third year playing, and keep moving to more understable. My most used discs are a gateway magic, and discraft buzzz. I would flip them over when I first started playing, but realized I just had to learn how to throw correctly. I'm sure Ben at the shop will have the best suggestions over me, or most anyone for that matter.

Good luck and keep discin'
What do you think of the super stupid soft? I was thinking of trying out an SSS Voodoo. I know everyone ends up with their own preferences etc. but I definitely appreciate all the various perspectives and helpful information here.
find a "play it again" sports store near you and buy up some used discs. Practice with those and find what works for you and then when your ready to buy, you pass the used up to local kids to get them in the sport.
I visited the Throw Shop last October on my way back to Alaska. Wish I would have had enough time to get a round in.

As for the first time in the store, set your limit ahead of time. My first time in a dg store was to look for one discs and I came out with four. My wife was less than pleased.
I've never thrown the SSS voodoo, I have the evolution version--but it still hasn't displaced my beloved wizards (of which I carry both a soft and evolution version) but I only hear good things about the SSS plastic for newer players--if you want to try the softest putter around, hunt down an omega super soft from millennium
I use a Wizard SS and an SSS. I love the feel of both - the SSS plastic really grabs the chains well.
Yeah, we have one not too far from here. I may see if I can find any discs there that I really like. The great thing about this sport is that the new ones I've bought so far haven't cost me very much at all. I figure that if my step kids become more involved as the get older I may pass some of mine to them. Right now being 7 and 9, I bought a little recreational aerobie and a couple Frisbee malibu discs that they are enjoying throwing as they join my wife and me walking through the course as I practice my throws.( she tries too, but I think she's undecided lol). I do like the idea of passing such a positive thing on to others, so I may find a good starter disc or two to keep in my bag in case I see another kid who looks like he or she wants to try.. if they like it I can say, keep it and enjoy it. Thanks for the suggestion as far as giving back.
I have a feeling that 6 months from now I'll have a collection of putters lol. Then again, that lends itself very well to the idea of having a disc or too to give away to kids who are interested that I put in the Reply to Tino.
