I've lost 2 of my 5 ace discs. The first ace disc I just don't throw anymore as it's been replaced(Cro) with the wasp. Legacy and SurgeSS still in the bag.

The first ace I got was with a sidewinder that I later threw in the lake at winthrop on hole 5.

My second ace was with a Valk that is still in my bag. Although I don't retire them I kinda wish I would have signed them like I have seen others do with a date and what hole.

from the start i just had one to throw with so i didn´t hang it on the wall when i got a ace with it.Now i hang all of my driver and midranges (and also the putters i dont putt with)on the wall when i get an ace with them i have four discs on the wall right now 2 drivers and my first and second putter.
If I would lose a disc I have aced with I would never forgive myself for it.
ON my wall i have (Star Destroyer 171g 1 ACE),(ESP Surge 174g 1 ACE),(ZERO -line Spike 170g 4 ACES) AND my first putter/disc( Pro -D Magnet 174g broken in half Bought mars 2008--Died june 2009).

I go through quite a few of the same model discs before I find one that I like. Chances are if I hit an ace it is with one of these drivers, my favorites. There is no way I'm going to quit using one of my favorite drivers.

I've never retired a disc just because I made an ace. I've made 3 aces. I've lost my all-time favorite driver a few weeks ago and I'm saddened. Not because I can no longer look at it, but because I can no longer use it to make great shots. I made my last ace with that disc. I've already found a replacement though.

I have one disc that I have had two aces with that I don't throw that much anymore. I could pull it out of the bag, but then I would just have to find something to replace it with.

I believe i broke the disc I got my first ace with(XD).............. originally retired it but couldn't get the replacement one to fly just like that beat in one. Ended up back in the bag........ Pretty sure I hit a tree at the SAME course that i got the ace on.

at first I didn't but after almost losing my first Ace disc I have decided to hang them on the wall afterwards....which is only 2 so it looks kinda wimpy. I seem to get metal a lot but not too many aces, still happy though because they are generally going way long unitl they hit metal
