I do have a disc that spent 2 months in a river here in Washington. The dye job faded to 50% and the disc is super flippy but feels nice and grippy. Its a SOLS, and when I got it back outa the river it was covered in green algi.

After probably only 2 years it would be so brittle it would shatter if thrown. I have some discs that were on the wall inside for 8 years that shatter first throw.

Then how exactly does OOP plastic hang around? I've own some discs i.e. San Marino circlestamp Cobra that is older than I am, yet held up perfectly fine after tree after tree after tree - and it's only DX.

(for power reference, I can actually throw 450' with a driver)

I've gotta 10x Eagle that looks like $#!T! Spotted, ugly POS. Probably was buried in the ocean since the day it was released. Texture feels funny, not smooth anymore. Looks moldy, but you can't clean anything off.. Guess what? Flies super stupid silly squishy straight!

See post #8, it's perma stained.

it's stored properly...??? Uv light is the most damaging element, stored in a dark box at room temp, plastic will last and last.

True; wasn't ignoring you I just let this thread slip my mind.


SO...it's only been about 6 weeks since I left her tied to the old oak out back, but wow. Color is drastically more dull (which I can accept), but the overmold did start to separate in a few places unfortunately. I only took pictures of the two biggest splits in the overmold, but there were four altogether. The two in the photo(s) I can get my fingernail into, however the others are too small for that.

As for the color fading - I figured that. BUT, big but, I've seen countless premium plastic [read: Champ/Z/Opto/Quantum etc.] discs that were left out in the weather/sun and never lost it like this (granted it did see a fair amount of sunlight). The thing that really got me though was that it lost it's glow from a black light. I can never play glow at my home course, and hate glow plastic during the day, so I only have the need to carry a flashlight in case I play into darkness. Prior to daylight savings time, I was getting pissed that I kept having to search with a flashlight so eventually I grabbed a blacklight flashlight and would only throw a fluorescent disc [MVP]. Worked like a charm, they light up and shine from a mile away to a blacklight..it's freaking wonderful. Damn sunlight

Let's see what happens next...

MORE PICTURES HERE!

You can see the separation through the rim.


Another look:


Color loss:


Side by side, I swear it's there. (blacklight)
