Default What is your weakness when shopping for plastic?

When you are at the store, browsing your favorite on-line retailer, or cruising the Marketplace, what aspect of shopping for discs tips your decision to buy?

What gets you to press that 'submit order' button? Is it a guilty pleasure?

I start as a back-up buyer, securing molds and in weights which I throw. Then something will catch my eye...

I rarely get sucked into buying plastic online. When I have a roc or wizard in my hand that feels extra nice it's hard to put it back on the shelf though.

I'll buy something if it is a mold I throw in a cool color, stamp, or if it is glow. I'm pretty good at only buying discs when I can afford it and have a reason for buying it. My last buys have been neutron MVP in easy to find colors and a neat Pred to replace one I threw in a creek. I may try to nab a bright neutron axis soon.

Putters. I like all putters. I have to avoid getting around them at the store.

Sales. I'll buy a disc that I don't even want just because it's on sale.

I know, I have a problem.
