Ever find discs in thrift stores?

Whenever I rummage through a Salvation Army or Goodwill, I keep my eyes peeled for any discs that might end up there. So far, I've never found one.

Anyone get lucky?

I've thought about this before. Too bad disc golf isn't a rich man's game. Also, once people start playing disc golf, they don't usually quit. That means they will hold onto their equipment forever.

I have looked at both yard sales and thrift stores. I did find some dx stuff at a yard sale, but I was told they were not for sale.

I have a neighbor that gave away a bunch of dx discs to Goodwill a few years back that he had in college in the 90s. He said he would have given them to me but did not realize I played. The only discs names he remembered were Raven (one of the most underrated discs ever I think), XD and Pegasus. The funniest thing he said was he thought that the some of the others were named after constellations and jungle cats. The champion plastic that I showed him really intrigued him which was pretty funny.

I told my sis-in-law to keep an eye when she goes to the flea markets. No luck yet.
