How are you chooseing the discs to buy? I always look at a flight chart and talk to people who throw that disc to see what they say. I also ask others to try one of their discs before I buy one.

what the hell do you sell? i go for feel of the disc and a lot of times you can go by popularity as well as a chart showcasing the ratings.

I usually try to buy twins (same model, color, weight, stamp color). That way if one of them becomes your favorite disc, you have a backup in case you lose it (although you'll have to beat it up to match, but still). It also works for when you get an ace and retire it... you can replace it immediately.
Of course if you don't like the disc... then you have two of them.

I prefer to buy discs in a shop rather than online, but DGC.com is tough to beat on prices with free shipping. When I am choosing a disc, I go by the flight charts and then by feel if at a shop.

Shouldn't that be "... and not bought one?" I'm actually confused at what you are saying.

I pretty much buy online only, and so far I've had good experiences with that. DGC provides great selection, free shipping, accumulative customer rewards, and excellent customer service. It is nice to actually hold a disc in your hand and be able see how it feels, but it is just hard to be the online pricing, especially with free shipping.
