My condolences on the loss of your disc. May you take comfort in knowing that it had a long life, and passed away doing what it loved to do.

Snapped, split down the middle!!!!
one of the Icy Arctic days we had early winter
I was enjoying a frozen round at Milo.....
I threw the disc and it hit a tree square about 200' out.... I am wondering if the speed and flight "super cool" the disc in below freezing weather .... and snap ... your out a disc!

It was a plastic O-ring on a freezing morning that brought down the Space Shuttle .... and snap ... you're out seven astronauts.

^^^ Oh, snap! ^^^
The only disc I've ever split through the middle was a DX Gazelle back in my one-disc days. I had seasoned it to the point where even my most valiant efforts couldn't make it hold a hyzer line on any flights over 250'... then one day, after an inconspicuous errant throw into some skinny birch trees, I walked up to find a 4-inch gash through the center.
The memory is a melancholy one (I wish I could say I still have/throw my very first disc), but the experience was certainly a catalyst for my game: out of the necessity to replace the gazelle, I was led to try out several other (fairway-) driver models as well as putters, and it was this period of experimentation which opened my eyes & mind to the variations among discs' flights. It's all been downwind from there... :rolleyes:

The longest drive of my life was made with a 148 DX Wraith. I put it up just right in a tailwind and sailed it 375 feet (longest by 50 feet). That was before a couple of injuries too. It was flippy to the max. Later on I had flipped it into the blackberries on the 5th at Trojan, but a Wise man returned it to me. One day I tossed it on the lefty route on Mud's 2nd to show someone a turnover shot. Being my second drive, I spaced looking for it and played on. It had slipped under the edge of a fern and I found it when it got sucked up into my mower deck and spit out the grass chute. It was one disc that really had sentimental value to me. But I definitely killed it.
