  • I really need this disc!

    Alrighty, folks... I was trying to let this go... but I just can't find a replacement for this disc so I am going to beg and plead to have it returned to me... I left my 162g faded, ugly yellow dx valk on #8 at Meadow Ridge out at Horning's... fridgecat found it and put it in the buckets and let me know here on the forum that he had found it. It was signed in pink sharpie emmarose with 3 little stars... I have looked 3 times in the buckets (I think Ma is starting to get suspicious of my intentions ) and it is not there . I can't figure what happened to it other than someone needed an extra disc, thought this one was so ugly who would ever want it back and snagged it when they were looking for one of theirs... or something... please if you have it, put it back in the buckets, send me a PM... and I promise from now on to put my # as well as my name on all my discs... and if you see someone throwing it, snake it from them and get it back in the buckets for me... thank you thank you thank you if you can help me... nothing anheyzers for me like that valk did...

    peace threw disc golf,

      thanks, amiga... I've tried other dx valks... there was just something super special about this one that made it annie like a dream for me... I don't know if it was the years it spent laying out on my front porch thru all kinds of weather, or the huge gouge I took out of it hitting the metal stake for the horse fence or what... but nothing has worked out the same for me...

        Nothing like familiar flippy.

        I've said it often: "Innova Discs: No Two Alike."

        I love my DXs. Some of them, anyway; the ones that get into your wheelhouse and stay there for a long ride.

            see... I thought I just had attachment issues, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a particular disc that can never be replaced... unfortunately this is a huge bummer then when you lose that one disc. So many of the discs in my bag, tho, are well used, well loved, and seemingly irreplaceable... the benefit of losing my backhand anheyzer disc is that I've been having to use a forehand drive on certain holes and I'm really seeing major improvement...

            ... however, I still want that Valk back!

            ... also my pirate monkey that I lost on #13 on the Canyon Course that same day!

              Counting on that forehand fade to replace that backhand annie arc? I can't see it. Two different curves. The sad thing about the old DXs is, even the great ones will eventually get even more beat. I see all DXs as consumables.

                  yeah... it's not the same, not as big, not as far, not as pretty... but I'm trying to find the silver lining anyway

                    I have a totally beat 150 R-Pro Boss that you can have - it just turns over for me and I don't throw rollers so it's been relegated to the basement...

                    It's not your disc, but could be similar...

                      wow... I can feel the love from the disc golf community! What support, what friendship based on a true passion for a great sport! Thank you so much, erp! I may just have to take you up on this offer... my tiny hands have a hard time wrapping all the way around the lips on some of the discs out there these days (hence my loyalty to valks of all sorts), but last saturday at pier I had an opportunity to throw someone else's beat r-pro boss and it sure as heck turned over without much of an effort for me... you're a peach!

                        My goto annie flipper is my oldest beater 150 R-Pro Boss. It took the spot in my bag that had the Monarch, which became the back-up.

                          certainly seems like it may be worth a try... plus, I've always thought it would be cool to throw a Boss...

                            Those light R-Pros were made jus fer us girls (if 'us girls' can be made to include decrepit old men). I just wish they could last longer, because before they get flippy, they are my goto long drivers too.

                            Please, Innova, give us some light DX Bosses pretty soon!

                            I wonder if the delay is because Innova is in negotiations with Springsteen for the image to be used on the stamp?
