I got one for a gift for a buddy, and I was planning on trying the other as a thrower. My question is, am I a moron if I throw one of these, and allow it to hit the ground?

I'm not much of a collector in general, of anything, so I'm hoping some of you disc archivists can give me some insight on this, what you think about them.

It seems clear that the big birds are in a different category, but what about the 1st runs?
Throw if you like it. If u hold onto it forever the most your gonna make is like 20-30 bucks not a big deal in my eyes.

Heard. I'm hoping it'll help fill a void. It may wind up being a holder/man cave decorator, since most rocs for me are "amelia earharts:" Looks good on takeoff, but then just disappears.

Thanks.

LOL. I would say hold onto it and wait to throw the new rocs in Feb when they release regular run. If it were summer time and you had to wait 2 months for the release I would most likely say throw it but since its winter then just hold on.

Someone posted a number last night for a dealer in Madison WI that had some BBs left. When I called he quickly explained I was #12 on the list for 7 Rocs but the last person he called back turned down the light weight. He promised he would call everyone back no matter what.

After 2 hours I figured he wouldn't call me back since he had nothing to sell me, I was in Ohio and it wouldn't matter. But he did call back just to let me know he had none left and to wish me a Merry Christmas. I thought that was cool.

So a shout out to Mike at GLIDE DISC GOLF in Madison, Wisconsin.

Mike is the MAN! And the Glide Disc Golf store is altogether great! He went into work at the store all day yesterday during the blizzard in Madison.

I called in when the Protos came last week, and of the 50 he got, there was 1 left! He shipped it to me and it ended up being a max weight lemon/lime with oil slick stamp. Its the exact one I would have picked out to be my thrower! I called again yesterday for a big bird and was 4th on the list. He walked me through all the disc colors, and weights he had over the phone, and I ended up going with the one he recommended. I didn't mind lighter weights with these, and have a light blue with a solid white stamp big bird coming!

That's pretty nice. I missed out on that one (even so, thanks moose-mdg for posting the #).

Any other leads out there for a places selling a heavier big bird for ~$30-and-under? I only have a few hours before I'm on the road and I'm still looking!

I got a call too, got a 174g proto star and a 180g bb. I was under the impression that since I waited so long id get to pick any 2 discs I wanted which would have been 2 big birds. Then I was told only one bb per customer. Bummer.
