It was a really nice early Champ Orc in pearly peach. Sniff.

or...

If your drive lands in a river of molten lava, leave it. It's gone, man. It's gone.
that's jacked up

Punched a hole in my favorite roller disc yesterday at Maple Hill. Thumber shot into a big azz pine and it caught a branch stub square.

Attempted to give it a proper burial at sea but it fell short of the pond on hole 1.........

Seems to be plastic becomes brittle over time. Almost all these broken discs are older.

I was playing with two buddies, Gripenemys and my buddy Joe. I was on hole 5 at Tyler and was on the right side of the fairway. If you've ever played Tyler and know hole 5, trying to get to the C pin is a bit^&. Lots of thin trees and some big ones thrown in the mix too. I have a hard anny shot that needs to go about 250+ so I take my San Marino Cobra out...mind you I'm kneeling down to make this shot. I throw it perfectly, perfectly into the first tree that I was trying to get around. The disc makes this weird hollow sound as it hits the tree. As I watch the disc hit the tree, it then breaks into 6 different pieces and explodes like shrapnel coming out of a shotgun. Grip was too far up the fairway to witness this but Joe was parallel to me and saw the entire thing. He begins to laugh histerically and walks over to where I'm standing over the disc. I was crushed. That disc had become such a staple in my bag that I didn't know what to do for the rest of the round when I needed that disc. I would just sit there and stare at my bag and Joe would just begin to laugh.

I've heard it explained before that plasticizers and other chemicals will degrade and can actually migrate within the plastic over time, making the plastic more brittle. This can be seen and felt as the chalky build up that develops on CE and 10x plastic.

Thanks for the info. Seems legit considering the findings on here. Makes me even more nervous about ever throwing older expensive discs. Maybe they are just all wall hangers at a certain point.
