To find discs, you must look for them. If you do not find a disc, look elsewhere. Do not fear the water. My simple rules for disc hunting will work for you, too! Just last spring I used my...

Pros play well when they are comfortable with their game. They get comfortable through practice. Practice flick putts, and you will get better at them. I spend about half my putting practice...

They are sexy.
They make pretty lines when you throw them.
Some drivers fly better for you than others.
Even if you don't throw 400', the right driver can get around, through, over and up to your...

Just business.

It's risky, but not unethical. You might get stuck holding "valuable"discs if you overprice them. I'm holding a 5 or 6 year old DGA hurricane that I've seen advertised for $50 bucks by a prominent...

Ah ha. Thanks. I'm not in a hurry, but I'm not going to be greedy, either. Someone with cash in hand will get that disc, but I'm not gonna grind 'em out for the "full value". So I see the PRO...

Sorry, I can't wait!

I found a 168g DX 9x Roc at Play-it-Again sports. White, purpley-pink foil, and I think I'm being honest when I say 9/10. It looks like it has been sitting in a garage...
