Where Do You Shop Online?

Just curious where you all shop and why. I hear a lot about different sites, but I never know where to go or why people choose one over another. Is it cheap shipping? Better prices? Good sales? Helpful staff? Awesome selection?

As for me, I've bought a few discs through Infinite Discs and really enjoyed them, but I'm also not terribly far away from Wright Life, so I do plenty of brick and mortar shopping.

(Also, sorry if I forgot any major players in the poll)

Shipping, prices, manufacturer, mold, weight, color. They all factor into the equation. Marshall & Community weigh every disc and have good prices, so they're my main sources when I have specific wants. I will not buy "bright colors" unless I'm getting factory seconds or a specific stamp. However, I always shop around.

Pretty much all the above at some point over the last year... One of my favorites, not listed, is Hyzer Farm (an ebay seller). It's run by Scott and Jeanne Papa (Scott of team Discraft and the star of many of their instructional videos). Great people, super-fast shipping and good prices.

Community discs HAS cheap prices and has the flat rate shipping of 1 dollar...you really cannot beat that....

Other places with "Free shipping" seem to generally up the prices of their discs in a schiesty attempt to offset their shipping cost i.e. "Free Shipping"

Yeah I've came to the conclusion that any "free shipping on any order" site generally has inflated prices already.

marshall street has my heart with $50+ free shipping. but that being said i probably order from them 3 times a year. i do however live close to gggt. and i wouldnt order from them online with shipping. also they did the price switcharoo in store about a basket i wanted to get that i saw online (ive had good and bad with them).

disc golf center is pretty legit and same with community discs.
