I was lookin on Discaroo and there is a Helios disc with an asking price of $13,000. thats some funny shat.

I was wondering what is the most expensive disc you guys have paid for?

Oh yeah, forgot about a couple dyes that were about $30.

30$ for a first run glo aviar.

I'd pay 50$ or so for a disc though if I found one I wanted or if I could have a select lost few returned back to me.

When the Z Drones fundraiser discs for World's came out early this year, I bought a couple of them at $19.95 a pop. I ended up winning another one in a raffle later.

I think you can get them for like $15 now.

I remember this guy in San Diego was buying Champ Destroyers off eBay when they first came out at around $200-$300 a pop. I think he bought around a dozen of them. I wonder how he's doing with them now.

i found a CE Champion TeeBird/tye dyed today ...disc is in good shape but is inked very heavily. It was marked with a number but then it must have been lost b/c that number is inked out with heavy sharpie
i would guess that this disc is in the range of $25-$30 new. i don't really know the value of used discs though

Is it a T or TL? Its pretty beat up but for the Teebird lovers out there I would think you could get 20 or so for it. Too much ink for aything more then that probably but you never know. There is "that guy" every once in awhile that comes arond and want just that certain run and weight. Who knows it might turn you into a teebrid lover?

I've never spent more than $20 on a disc. I figure it's not worth the investment for something as easy to lose as a disc, or if you don't lose it you beat the value out of it over a year or two. And I'm not a collector, so other than my two Climo/Schultz signed discs, I throw everything I own.

I was up in Boone, NC at a store and saw a Champion Coyote that was that "tennis-ball" light green color. I couldnt find that disc anywhere in Charlotte (this was before I knew where to look for discs online) and saw the price tag on it: $20.00.

I bought it. The SAME day, got my first and only ace with it. I'd say it was $20 well spent.

People can spend what they like on discs free of judgement from me. It's like people driving expensive cars or wearing exspensive clothes. If they choose to spend that extra income on discs I think it's cool. Even if it's never thrown. A disc collection beats a coin or card collection in my book.
There should be more $50 votes for the steady eddy.
I heard those prem rocs can get $$. How much you people payin for em?

I paid $40 for a 2002 USDGC Champ Roc back in 2003, that's the most I've paid for a non-dyed disc.
I won a champ Coyote dyed like Captain America's shield on ebay that I think I got for around $40...but it could have been $50.
Anymore I'd only pay more than $18-$20 for a disc if it's either a custom dye job, a CE something (I've never thrown one, and I think next year I'll invest in one), or if one of my favorite discs goes out of production.

I don't even like to think what I'd pay if they stopped making Valkyries or Monarchs:)

I know 'Lost in the Brambles' has a nice collection of older 1st run CE discs.

I believe this is the disc he bought:

1st run Proto CE Gazelle.

I also share his Gazelle addiction, but I've only spent 20-30$ on old KC Pro/CE Gazelles.

I don't mind buying older CE discs- they're indestructable, and they keep their flight characteristics (overstable, usually) much longer than today's Innova crap plastic!

$25, with no shipping charge due to the fact that I was buying a bag at the time, for a New Gold 25th Anniversary Aviar. If you figure a dollar a year, since it came out, over the original going price it was not to hard to stomach.
Other than that just a few $20 Tourney discs.

Yeah I have a hard time with understanding the prices I see on E-bay sometimes... $20 is my limit really but I throw everything I've got so I'm not buying to put on the wall or on the mantle. I guess I might break down some day and buy a disc I remember from way back when ya know... so maybe $25 for nostalgia

I guess I might break down some day and buy a disc I remember from way back when ya know... so maybe $25 for nostalgia

Ha! So I went up against a collector on E-bay and wound up paying $60 for 2 very cool clear Cryztal Z Buzzz's.. I got a little trigger happy and really didn't mean to do it but... ahh well I have 2 Cryztal Z Buzzz's now that I don't regret but man the price! That's 30 per disc. I see them all the time for around 16.
So there, that is the most I've ever paid for a disc x2...

Maybe you're reading this and saying "So that's the guy that beat me out! What a jerk!" if so that would make it worth it!

Maybe you're reading this and saying "So that's the guy that beat me out! What a jerk!" if so that would make it worth it!

Not quite thinking that....but I almost bid myself. I actually was watching the auction.

In fact instead I tried lowballing somebody on here (they wouldn't just TELL ME WHAT THEY WANTED) and they never responded...probably figures I'm cheap.

I'm not cheap...just I have bought a LOT of BuzZzs lately...and if I can save a few $$ I will.

He should have just manned up and said "I want 18 for it" or something, and I'd have paid, gladly.

Oh well..

The most I've ever paid for a disc, I now realize, isn't as bad as I once thought.

I thought the guy had dyed my megeman on a pro teebird...Turns out it's Star plastic! So I didn't get QUITE as ripped as I thought...part of the problem is I didn't think he was going to charge me shipping on TOP of the price he quoted...which was $5.00.

So $30 for Star TeeBird with a sweet 8 bit MegaMan dye on it...plus $5.00 shipping.

Not cool, but I'm still glad I have it.

I can't convince myself to pay more than $20 for a disc. I think that the best part about this sport is that the average person can afford the exact same equipment that the professionals use. Just wondering, does this same rule apply to other sports? I can't think of any. Maybe ultimate

Bowling? Maybe I don't know. It's a little more expensive, but BMX is close. Phil Jones, who is a "pro" rider for Eastern Bikes, is a friend of mine, and there are lots of guys around who ride a similar level of bike to his.

Pro BMX riders also have the money to pay for their medical bills when they get a handle bar shoved through their chest? Really no major sports, can't get a baseball bat for less than a few hundred, girlfriend plays soccer and she drops over a hundred on under-armor alone.

Pro BMXer's usually aren't rich. A few of them are. Another friend of mine who used to travel the country as a sponsored pro no longer does so because he wrecked, was in the hospital, and got dropped by his sponsor because he couldn't make the next competition. And he got stuck with the hospital bill.

A top level BMX bike could cost $1000 to $2000, depending on the set up. I know, and said before, its a bit more expensive. I figure the average DG pro carries probably 20-25 discs. At an average of around $13 at retail, that's somewhere around $300 to $350, put into probably what is a bag that's $100 or so, on average. So, BMX would be 3 or 4 times as expensive, but still relatively affordable, as opposed to say a professional road biker, or motorcross racer, whose equipment costs hundreds of times more.

No matter what, DG is one of the cheapest sports to get into, any way you slice it. Even if you're willing to pay $50 or more for a disc. You still typically don't have to pay to use it, and it will last a while.

I think that I've paid about $18 max for a disc. And that was after getting gouged by one of the "box" sports stores since I'm addicted to plastic. It was probably just something pretty like a Champion JK Valkyrie or something like that.

I'm also in the group that buys discs to throw them, I dont hang them on the wall, or speculate on them.
Only problem for you 20 dollar max guys is you will never get to throw some of the latest discs in premium plastic.
I know I paid at least 20 for my TFR Monarch, and TFR Katanas are more than that, but I like Star plastic, it lasts forever and it feels good in my hand, and tournament fund raiser discs to me are a good cause.

The most I've paid so far was 30 bucks for Brian, I won him in an Ebay auction, I just really liked the dye job.

I paid a little over 20 for a star Katana for a friend's Christmas present. I paid $20 for a mako yesterday - but I think I got jipped because I was supposed to be trading up my free plastic (Ice Bowl). Oh well. Those are my two highest.

I paid a little over $100.00 for a pie plate. I've wanted one for a long time for the collection, and when the funds presented themselves at the same time the pie plate came up, I jumped on it.

What can I say, I'm a collector and every Frisbee collector really needs a Frisbee Pie tin to "ROUND" out the collection.

20+ shipping on a Star Classic Roc, white Dynamic Discs Revenge of the Monkey disc.

Big fan of the Classic Roc, now out of production, and can see myself spending up to around 30-40 tops every few years to pick one up.

I do enjoy a nice dye, but can't see paying a big markup for one. I'm not a collector either, so the the most expensive disc I can see myself ever buying is one that is not being produced anymore for a slight markup.

I thought it was going to cost me a LOT more than just the Ben. Being my first attempt at buying from ebay, I had no idea what to expect. I hadn't even set up my paypal account when I found out I won the bid. So I let the dude know what was up with my inexperience, and I would close the deal when my paypal was going. He started sending obscenities and generally trashing my family even though I kept in touch and updates about the paypal thing. I was starting to plan a road trip to upstate New York to settle the deal in person, if ya know what I mean.

I buy X outs to save coin. I have not spent over $20 on any disc including shipping. Maybe that is why I have too many discs...I trick myself into thinking that I can get two for what one would cost even though I would never buy one at the high price. :doh:

mzuleger
01-19-2010, 04:26 PM
an obvious trend has developed here.

people who have been playing > X amount of years are willing to pay more for discs
people who have been playing < X amount of years are not willing to pay more for discs

I think it also has a little to do with age though, when I was 20ish spending more than $20 on a disc seemed like a waste of my minimal funds. Now that I'm 31 with a secure financial situation $25 is not as big of a deal to me.

Vegan Ray
01-19-2010, 04:30 PM
People who have been playing > X amount of years probably fell in love with a disc that hasn't been commercially available for X - Y years (where Y is generally somewhere between 0 & [X - 1], but, in some circumstances, may be less than 0). They are more amenable to paying higher prices on the secondary market to replace that "must have" disc.

I agree with the longer you been playing the more likely you are to drop some change for a disc. I just paid $40+ for an old school DX Teebird. Never seen one before til last week on eBay. I'll attach the picture. I'm pretty pumped about it. The most I've paid was like $50. Thats for stuff like CE or rare discs that they don't make anymore. I'm a collector of discs too. I plan on having a wall full one day. I got about 75+ I'm gonna hang on wall one day. Some are tournament discs. Not so much that they're special but that they just have the tourney stamp on it from tourneys I've played in. Then there's the original set of CE's, some Champion and various Roc's etc...you know.

About the same amount of wall hangers as throwers....

Most expensive disc so far was a 1 of 1 Katana... had to offer $100 since the guy didn't want to sell it... he turned down the offer... then he told his wife about it...

long story short he sold it to me.

I paid $45 for a 'Brand X' Glo disc with the words Santa Cruz on the top of the disc at a disc auction at Grandma Miller's Farm tourney in CO in 1993.

I sold a San Marino ROC for $145 on ebay three or four years ago.
