When I started playing DG tournaments years ago, as I woman I was inundated with plastic that was useless to me. Things have definately gotten better as TD's are now making an effort to carry lighter weight discs (much appreciated), but I personally like picking my own plastic.
Anyway, I always liked getting apparel better because even though the shirts I got never fit me, I gave them to my husband to wear, where the plastic I won sat in a bin in my backyard getting warped. Then when I became a TD I was curious about how other players felt and I created threads on many different message boards asking.
The results showed that over half of the players prefered things such as shirts and towels over plastic.
