Funny, my first thought is throw it, bury it in the chains for an ace, then hang is on the wall as your ace disc that has never seen the ground.

I don't buy wall plastic. But I also don't throw virgin plastic on a water hole for the first throw, either.

I've done that. I have one-and-dones in the ponds at Winthrop and Maple Hill.

I always hate taking those first few throws with a brand new pretty disc because I don't want to see that innocence marred by the travesties that are found all around the course. After it gets a scuff or two, I have no problem hucking it all day long, though.

A custom dyemax from DD is the toughest for me. I get them specifically to bag and show off but they just end up hidden at home because I don't want anyone else to find it lost and have my precious.

I know how you feel there. I especially get that way since I have had discs stolen from fairways while looking for a partner's disc before :/

A find of mine had two guys run distraction on him while a third snuck behind him and stole his just thrown disc out of the fairway and left. He gets done talking to the other two, looks for his disc, notices it gone, and by the time he turns around to ask the others all three are gone. Plastic robbery is real people. We need to stop this.

That is ridiculous... Sad thing is that stupid stuff like that are part of what's holding this sport back.

How is that holding the sport back?? Disc golf is no different than any other community in that you have a lot of good people with a few bad apples mixed in. This is not unique to disc golf.
