Default Best and Worst names for discs

What are the coolest names for a disc and what are the ones that make you think, dear god why?

Off the top of my head I'd say the Wraith, Destroyer, Boss, Suspect, Justice, Spider, and Eagle as my favorites. I'd probably think of better ones if thinking about it.

Worst I'd say is Warden, Judge, Skeeter, Mamba, Groove, deputy, marshals, mantis, anything MVP/Axion.

Throwing out names I could say more but I'd like to hear others opinions. Bad names do not steer me away. My damn favorite disc is a River. Water OB all over it Haha.

From what I've read, the Roach may be Discraft's best putter and would fit my putting style very well. But because of its disgusting name, I refuse to buy or use it.

I also don't like Discmania having both the letter/number designation AND another name, like "Psycho". I'm good with "P2" and "FD", just leave it at that!

Favorite name? "Star Destroyer", of course.

Not even close... its a tie between the Lat64 Anchor and Axiom Vanish for worst...




...as for best? You gotta give Rico some props for not beating around the bush and naming his tbird clone the Rival.

Best IMO; Destroyer, Firebird, Giant, King, Clutch

Worst; Vein, Roach, Enemy, Stalker, Gavel

That’s just off the top, there are a lot of good and even more bad names.

Thread could not be complete without mention of the Lat64 Sinus. Truly horrible name.

As far as good disc names, I'm partial to the Eagle. Things that are good at flying seem like great disc names to me. Added bonus that it's also used to describe scoring two under par on a hole.

I think Kong is a stupid name. I just think of the dog toy every time I see it.

I'm a huge Michigan basketball fan, so the Bee Line from ABC Discs is my favorite name.
