Shattered

Well, I had a crazy thing happen today. I was playing a snow round here in Norman, Oklahoma, at NE Lions park. I had a dead on ace run with my nicely seasoned KcPro Aviar on hole 9, as it got closer I suddenly saw a nice big skip and heard that loud CLANG.... right off the top of the basket. "Ah h3ll," I literally said, but oh well, it will be a drop in bird. As I was walking down to the basket I was a little bummed that I just missed out on a snowy ace with my favorite putter, but suddenly became far more bummed as I walked up to putt it in and realized this...





Odd shatter, eh? I'm not going to be dishonest, I was pretty bummed initially as this is my "go to" putter, and an ace disc at that. That disappointment quickly changed to intrigue though as I've never seen a disc split like this. They're always pretty straight splits, or even have a bit of a shattered pattern, but to be uniformly wavy like that just straight across the flight plate was pretty unique, I thought.


Anywhoo, I just thought I'd share an odd disc split and near ace story that happened all in one throw....

I saw 37 people viewed it and nobody replied so I thought I'd comment.

It sucks your disc shattered. Maybe you can hang it up to remember the good ole days. Perhaps now you can try other molds and have a new go to disc.

Looks like a mustache. Draw a face on that bad boy and hang it on the wall.

Sorry about your disc, but maybe destiny is telling you it's time to try something different...?

You took the words out of my mouth. Go premium for your next putter and dye a mustache on that bad boy!

How did u hit a tree at lions there's not that many there anymore! But as to the split I've seen lots older DX and some of that plastic split down the middle. It's a wall hanger now, or a dog disc.

Well now you have a great disc for the wall.

An Ace disc
An ace run
and an odd crack.

I know I'd hang it if it were me.
