I can report on acetone wiping having no deleterious effects on my vibrams... I actually did this to reduce the very slight "oily" feeling they had when I got them. Interestingly, the ink on the...

I've been using mostly iDye Poly red, blue, and orange myself lately, and they take really well, and pretty fast (I just did a shaving cream dye in 2 hours!) but definitely start with white star (or...

From what I can tell, the Aero is only available in DX, and while I would totally play some catch with one myself, might be a little harsh for the people I have in mind... Hero Super Star looks...

Suggestions for a dyable catch disc?

Anybody here know of a decent catch (for inexperienced throwers) disc made from something like Star plastic? Larger diameter than a golf disc, but light and understable would be nice... failing that,...

Got mine today, here's a little "review" for anyone who's curious:

It's better constructed than I expected (made in Taiwan, not China) and is perfectly sturdy out to disc radius, at least. It's a...

Do the blades look like the Olfa blade pictured? If so, I'll probably get one, since the one I have only goes to 15cm... the Olfa blades are easy to find and high quality, if they turn out to be...

Yeah, I should probably clarify that a little - I didn't mean to suggest that it would remove the impression from the stamp, just that if used before the acetone it can reduce the smearing that...
