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...

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...

Too many discs created a problem for me: I never really learned a single disc well. Every week was something new (to me, that is, after wading around the pond for abandoned discs :) )

I bet you didn't know that they had DG back in the Nefut Desert during the first world war. Sharif Ali talks a lot of smack, but he backs it up with a lot of "crush it!"
