For the most part you get treated the same. Discmania actually has begun only selling some releases to brick and mortar stores.

In June, finding starter packs on Amazon (hey, the whole family was driven to the game by the pandemic) was hard. I got three for the wife and kids, and borrowed a few from a guy at work for myself until the backordered set came in.

And since I've come here and found the real stores, I've been watching their inventory get sparser. But I'll be watching ebay next year...

Great time to sell on eBay...

Just by co-incidence, I decided to sell down my substantial disc collection.

Oh my,
Some of the stuff is going for prices that I would not have imagined.
Especially some of the lower-stability and lighter-weight discs.
Even used stuff is getting good prices.

Here's a tip for you, and I don't know why, but Canadian online shops have some stuff not available in the states.

Players are buying anything they can get so its been a full out Christmas rush for the past seven months. I assume every disc golf store is doing the same just like bikes, kayaks, any outdoor specialist item.

This is what I've heard as well.

I stopped in one of our local shops yesterday to drop off a found disc for the owner to pickup. Got to talking with the shopkeeper and he mentioned that on their last two Discraft orders they were called the day before their order was set to ship and were told they couldn't fulfill it as placed. Discraft didn't have a single disc that the shop was trying to order in.

I've ordered discs for the local club for about 15 years, Innova and Discraft only until last year adding Trilogy. Since CV19, Innova has nothing I want, Discraft has very little and takes 3-4 weeks for a partial order to arrive. Trilogy was OK until 2 months ago. So I started ordering from Discmania but now they are 95% out and most recently MVP which was good until my last 2 orders. It's a terrible time to be ordering discs. I put in an order to one of them at least once a week and will run out of drivers to sell within a week. The Compass and Origin mid ranges have been available lately thankfully.

What sites/pages have you had the most luck selling your discs? What were you mostly selling, collector discs, new, used throwers, or a little of everything?

Our local store got a Discraft shipment in and they are actually doing a limit of 2 per mold and only selling them in store (no shipments) just to give more people a chance to buy. Pretty wild for things like stock stamp Buzzzs and Zones and whatnot.
