      I wonder if it would work on discs or alter the flight at all.

          Did you follow the instructions and use the base coat?

          It's possible that it doesn't last as long on flexible surfaces. The driveway test video (3rd video on the article) the guy admits that he did not use the base coat or follow the instructions and he said it barely lasted a week but I cannot imagine building an entire company around a product that did not last a week.

          I think this would be worth trying on a course to see the results. If it lasted for an entire Fall / Winter / Spring, would that be worth it?

            I wonder how the traction would be on it. What if your shoes are wet, you'd slip all over the place!

                Ok, I'm all for dry non slippery tees. However, this doesn't sound like the right product. Do we really want to spray a new chemical all over our tees? One with fumes that "Even outdoors, coming anywhere near the stuff requires nitrile gloves and a P100-rated respirator fitted with organic vapor filters."? A product that if contacted can cause skin irritation? A chemical that will slowly leak off the tees and into the courses we play on with unknown environmental consequences? And finally a product with limited durability, one that according to the makers "is somewhat susceptible to UV exposure"? Keep the chemicals off the disc golf course.

                    Excellent topic. I'm with RollerBoB on the environmental issue. Masonry sealers tend to be good products, but are often slick when wet. A good broom finish on well placed concrete lasts a long time, and should not cause too much resistance in the front foot. I'm sure I am not the only person here getting occasional knee problems, from rotating my lead foot all day on overly-gripping, coarse concrete. My preference is easily fly pads on a proper subbase, because of the knee issue. They wear out, they're not cheap, and they need maintenance, but they're friendly to the feet and knees.

                        A little sand on concrete would allow for good general traction but allow for rotational movement when the force from twist is applied.

                          Forget putting this on tee pads, what if it was used on benches. Alway have a dry place to sit no matter how much it rains

                            Interesting Stuff. I was thinking something else when I read the title of the thread. I have always wondered about this:
                            http://http://www.enviroseal.com/m-10.htm
                            Mainly developed for military airports in the desert but cities are using it for ADA walking paths. I should order a sample and try it. If it worked may be a cheap alternative to concrete as all you need is dirt and the sealer.
