I took a video of me unboxing it as well, but the internet is down at my house and I'm having to do this at a coffee shop around the corner.

Here's the box as it showed up.




And here is the contents. Complete with swag.



Inside there was:
Opto line River - Never thrown one before, I'm realy excited to try it out.
Blizzard Wraith - again haven't thrown one before, stoked to give it a try.
Super Color Buzz - Really cool print went straight on my wall
Cryztal Z Challenger - My go to putter. Allways helps to have another one.

There was also a mini, paracord braclets, a pen light, a reuseable scorecard w/ pencil, foot warmers, tosty toes, a disc golf magnet, neck coolers, and 9 next tee stickers.


Very cool package SS. I salute you.
I'm glad your happy with it! I saw you the the challenger, so I put mine in that I tried. The next tee stickers, I'd made for some one...and I had a lot of orange vinyl left over...I use them on hard to navigate courses, the pole or band are good spots for them.

So I am.

I think I remembered the 7th from last year.

Edit: Heh, yep: http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums...ad.php?t=44887 . I read the entire 2011 thread before I decided to sign up for the 2012 Christmas SS to make sure I was capable of sending something I thought someone would like to receive.

Glad you like it all. Enjoy! The video alone made it worth sending. Actually made me wish I would have sent more. The discraft proto...I cannot verify the following story, but this is what I heard: I believe the disc came about after the Nuke as an attempt at an overstable Nuke. I had heard they were thinking of calling it a King. It did not go into production and is not PDGA approved. It makes it more of a collector than anything. Either way, hope you like the package.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. Does anyone know if they get mad if one of the flat rate boxes is bulging a little?
I hope it's coming to Illinois!

a lot of people like to send more than receive and that is why there are so many generous packages

I go to two different P.O.'s one by my work and one by my old house. The one by my old house would tell me 'They'd let it go this time but next time it won't fly' the one by my work doesn't care.
