Thanks rtc. I like Justin and have ordered from him 3 times now. I was using up an Amazon.com gift card so the order went through Amazon, but the disc came from an unmentioned vendor. I did not reveal the name of vendor out of basic respect for others, something in short supply. I'm new at disc golf and coincidentally, I'm new at purchasing discs. I wanted to get input from others before I contacted the vendor and put them on the spot. I just got a scale today and in the future will weigh new discs before I throw them. Looks like I learned 2 lessons today.

Peace.

I always suspected that a Summit I got in a trade awhile back was lighter than inked and sure enough, my 173g was actually a 165.8g.

Moral of the story, if you're getting a disc and you want the weight to be spot on, order from someone that scale weighs their own discs b/c the guy at the factory with the sharpie phones it in sometimes.

I'm pretty sure there's some dude on here who represents a company who weighs all of their discs...

clearwater disc golf and tydiscgolf.com have the best customer service so far. they stay on the line with you while they go into the wharehouse and look for the specific disc you want. amazing service. you came to the right place if you are looking for disc golf help. theres a ton of sarcasm but you grow to love it.

happy hunting.

Stick with Justin at Community discs, go through HIS site and you can't go wrong. I've ordered 4 times through him and will continue to do so. Moral of the story, go through the actual site (I know you had the gift card) and don't throw somethin you don't want get what were expecting. That being said, I'm sure you can trade on here.

some scales are off usually the cheap old digital ones you can not calibrate. postage ones are right on the mark. Also you paid to much
