Heh. I see what you did there. No on the glue, but no telling what's going on with the acetone used to remove unsightly stamps on the discs...

How do they fly after the alterations? Do you notice much of a difference?

It just gets rid of the turn being it got flippy. It was just an experiment. I don't use the disc much. The hot glue is too grippy. Interesting though that the sanded epoxy stays attached. My first Dx Beast has been repaired quite a few times. Recently, I bought a brand new DX Beast and there was no difference in max distance from the repaired one.

I wonder if we could ever reach the point where repairing discs will become a thing. Send your beloved disc to a scratch and dent shop to bring it back to new.
Doesn't seem economically feasible, but if one is sentimental enough about a disc...

My OCD takes a different track. I find a disc/mold that works and I buy a few to put aside for the inevitable remold/discontinuation. Shoot I've got boxes full of discs in the basement... just in case.

Coupla wall hangers in my office, several in the basement. Not sure how many, all Champ. True story! They were my primary mid for many years. As I started to lose armspeed with the years I gravitated to Mako's, then Foxbats, and now Wombats.
