Thought it would be cool to see if anyone has any good stories about their experiences with the Sun King, Mike Barnett.
Personally, when I started playing disc golf again sometime in 2003 (I have played since 1978, but just for fun and occasionally, I joined the PDGA, and started playing in a few tournaments in 2004) I had no idea what was going on in the sport. A friend of mine gave me a Champion Valkyrie and a putter ... I had never seen a "modern" disc, I had always just played with Frisbees. I was amazed at how it flew and immediately hooked on the sport. I haven't looked back since.
I remember finding the Sun King site and thinking how cool it was that you could order these awesome discs online. You have to know I live in the mountains of Colorado ... way up in the mountains. We don't have any "disc golf" shops up here. So buying online was my only option to get the discs I wanted.
Mike Barnett at Sun King and I talked quite a bit in those days. He was very helpful and answered the enormous amount of questions I had about discs and disc golf. Over the years I've bought quite a few discs from Mike and he's always made sure I got something extra.
Mike has also done some personal favors for my family members when they were looking for the "special" disc gift for me. I can safely say I have all those discs ... some hang on my wall, and some in the bag.
I've always been happy dealing with Sun King and can honestly say I've never been disappointed with any product I've received from them.
On a personal note, Mike has offered to put me up at his house every year since the Players Cup started ... Maybe I'll make it this year!
