  • New Disc Day Thread

    Is there any better day than New Disc Day?

    My birthday is tomorrow, but I have already received some cash money for the event and headed down to NA to blow it. I picked up a Champion Beast and Roadrunner and a DX Stingray. The Roadrunner and Stingray are new molds to my bag and I am excited to try them out. The Beast is my workhorse for Pier Park considering the DX one I have is getting pretty chewed up.

    Anyway, what do you guys think is we make this thread the New Disc Day thread and we all post here our new purchases and how they turn out?

    On Saturday I purchased a Halo by latitude 64 and it seems to throw just like my champion boss. The colors are unique but I'm a bit concerned about them hiding.

          New Echo Valk! I love orange; they have good grip and are easy to find.

          Took it to the field and it feels nice.

            I took my new bag and discs out yesterday to hit Pier and Greenway and found the Champ Beast and Roadrunner weird out of the box. It is normal for Champion plastic to be a little overstable when it is brand new? I heard something like that before.

              I find Champion discs to feel the most overstable off the shelf.
              Star isn't quite as bad... but still needs some love.

              If you liked your DX Beast off the shelf, just break in the new one and enjoy.
              Pier park should be a good place for that, decent number of trees.

              I find Roadrunners to be an awkwardly fast and understable disc to throw with consisitency... maybe just me though. Don't know the rays...

                That is what I am hoping. I got the Champ plastic to take on the trees since they have been eating my DX discs.

                  Bought a Star Katana from Bob at a park in Orlando, Florida. Holy crap, that disc is stable compared to my champ Katanas. But since star breaks in pretty quickly, I hope it will be more katana-like after some North Park Time.

                      Brand new, 11X K.C. Pro Gazelle, solid black.

                      I have never seen any disc before in solid black Champion/C.E. plastic.
                      I have seen black Champion discs like the ones Mark has on DGV, but those are all kinda smokey.

                      This Gazelle is more like black Star plastic, completely opaque, no light goes through it. I tried a flashlight, but not even a glow comes through.
                      I know its Champ/C.E. because thats the only plastic that 11X's were made in.
                      Thing bombs really straight, just like the old one. Has white writing on it, so its pretty easy to spot, but I aint playin' any night golf with it any time soon.
