  • Contact info on R-Pro plastic?

    Hey I was wondering if anyone has come up with a good method of putting contact info on R-Pro plastic. Seems like I have to re-write my info after every use of my R-Pro plastic. The sharpie ink just rubs right off.

    Hot branding irons. Anyone tried that?

      Try the inside of the rim. I've had no problem writing there, but did notice that stuff written on the flight plate rubbed right off.

        I will try that first (before melting it). Nothing I've tried has worked yet.

          Thanks Scott. I did try that it is better, but it still rubs off. I think one reason is my pre-drive ritual is to grip the rim, and rotate it a few times while gripping it.

            This is a feature of R-Pro plastic.

            If you've lost it, then chances are that you've thrown it at least once and its broken in so flippy that you'll no longer want it back.

              Sez the big-arms. It might be a 142 that I'm still waitin' for to get right.

                I just tried something that looks like it's working. I well scuffed the underside of the flight plate with fine sandpaper before marking it with a Sharpie. It's initially not rubbing off. I think it's actually going to stay there.

                  I use an industrial sharpie (you can get them at alot of hardware and office supply stores), and I have used bob's trick of roughing up the surface... It is what I do before I paint model rockets. Use fine grit sandpaper, 300 or higher though.

                    I think it is further proof that R-pro plastic wasn't meant to exist.

                    edit: except for soft putters, I suppose.

                      I couldn't agree with you more.

                        Why all the haters against R-Pro plastic. I throw 160 weight, and R-pro plastic being lighter allows me to throw a Boss & Katana. I have tried to throw the heavier 168 range, and I am just not as successful with those molds in that heavier weight. I would say there is difinatly a nich for the R-Pro plastic. Al least in my bag there is.

                          I don't like the concept of high speed drivers made out of delicate plastic. It smacks of wastefulness. On the grand spectrum of disc-life, R-pro drivers reside closest to the "one-time use only" side.

                            I throw low/mid-160s too, but I don't want disposable discs. If you like those warp-speed molds, check out an Opto Line Halo; they go as low as 163g and are very durable.

                              I think I agree with absolutely everyone on R-Pro. I tag the bottom of the flight plate and it rubs off, I'm going to see if a little solvent applied first doesn't help adherence

                              Hate the durability but they're the longest discs in my bag by 20 or more feet, I can throw them wet with very little towel time compared to anything else, and they totally break your heart every time...

                              So I won't buy the drivers, I will, however trade for them.

                              Now my R-Wood Rancho and R-Pro Ontario Rocs on the other hand, are blessed gifts from somewhere sublime...
