quad shocks are the way to go if you want durability and aren't afraid to spend a little extra. Since you got the gel straps for free I say just use them until they fall apart completely. You will need to know how to sew to keep them going though.

A friend of mine had his gel straps start to fall apart. He emailed DGA and they sent him a new set free of charge a week later (while keeping his old ones). The new ones were clearly doublestitches in places the first ones werent. They have held up for him great so far for a year easily.

What does it mean when people list a disc and put something like "8/10" or "9/10" as part of its description?

Does 'The Secret Revealed' Program from DGR really help anyone's game?

it's a rating system for used discs called "The Sleepy Scale"

Disc Condition Scale aka "The Sleepy Scale"
10 - Never thrown, no ink, brand new condition
9 - Field tested or used for one or two rounds
8 - Lightly used with very minimal wear
7 - Used with some minor dings or scuffs but still in good shape
6 - Typical used disc with the usual dings, scratches but still worthy
5 - Kinda beat, significant wear, has lost a good bit of it's stability
4 - Beat up turnover disc with some evident war story wear
3 or under - Beat to Hades dog chew toy
