The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Over the last two weeks I have lost 4 discs, 3 of wich were some of my favorite discs (2 Archangels and a champ valkyrie). I lost 3 of them out in the Redwood Curtain and one out in Willow Creek. I still have not heard anything about the 3 in the curtain, but the one in Willow Creek was found by a local player up there. He found it while looking for his disc in some thick brush, but it wasn't the hole I lost it on, so someone out there was playing with my disc and lost it again (karma you could say). Thankfully the guy who found it while looking for his own was a good person and called me and got it back to me. I was well willing to drive all the way out to Willow Creek (10-15$ gas) to play a couple rounds with the guy and bought him some beer (another 10$), just to get my 8$ archangel back. Why you ask, becuse after loosing my two archangels (willow creek and the curtain) I went out and bought a new one and it threw completly diffrent from how it was before. I thought it might need to be broken in, or it was a diffrent plastic, maby that it was even a misprinted disc. When I got my old one back I compared them and Inova had changed it there was less dome on it and it seemed a little wider. The new Archangel has less high speed turn and more fade, making it fly like a completley diffrent disc. Does any one know why Inova decided to change this disc I miss my old ones. If anyone has any old Archangels in 150 class I might be willing to buy them.
Many thanks to Nate for returning my disc and for showing me the 10th hole out there at Willow Creek.

I was compairing both a new one and an old beat in one, both had a way diffrent flight pattern. Maby it was the color being diffrent, it was a purple disc, and before it I had had red, yellow, and white ones. I have had some great shots the last few days sence I got my yellow AA back, almost aced hole 2 at the redwood curtain last night after work, bounced off the top of the basket and into the fairway for 3.

Hey Chris. Sorry to hear about lost discs and new ones that aren't straight replacements. I've lost a few recently that will be hard to replace, too. One was lost at my home course, then 2 weeks later I get a call from the pro shop at another course 30 miles away..."hey, we got your disc!" ?!?

As for the new Archangels, it's not necessarily the mold that has changed. Different runs of plastic, even different colors, can cool at diffferent rates...which then causes differences in dominess (and therefore diameter), etc. One other thing - is it possible you're trying to compare the flight pattern of the new disc with one that you had beat in? Just wondering. Commiserating a bit too as I try to find a replacement for a 143g Leopard-X.
