And just to be clear, we're people on the internet talking about special frisbees. This is not to be taken too seriously. If you don't get any of this even if you enjoy our frisbee-throwing game, you are a well-adjusted normal person and I certainly don't hold it against you.

You're meaningless.

I think of "uncool" discs as ones that might be great discs, just aren't in fashion or just had a really poor reception for one reason or another. This is totally subjective, but I consider the V-Roc to be the ultimate example of an uncool disc within the community. V-Tech was the butt of many a joke when it was unveiled.

New blizzard with bubbles in the rim is pretty uncool, but possibly too popular.

What did I ever do to deserve an ignore from you? Big DeChambeau fan? I had no idea that anyone would possibly think enough of me to ignore me.

Slight sidebar - have we reached a point where just a regular Roc is uncool? I went to my local piag and decided I wanted to buy a new KC Pro roc since Id never thrown a fresh one. They had 3 different flavors of Roc3 and even a Vroc, but didnt even half shelf space set aside for a regular Roc in dx or KC pro

The question is... what is cool? Can cool be classic? Does it have to be trendy?

So does this settle the Buzzz vs. Roc debate?

For something to be uncool... to me... It has to be something that's gone OOP due to lack of interest, right?

Putter: Aviar P&A (small bead variant)
Mid: Dynamic Discs Lucid Warrant
Mid: Innova Star Spider
Driver: Lat 64 Opto Line Blitz
Driver: Innova Champ Eagle L Mold

This gives me a reliable putter that suits my putting style, an understable and a straight-to-stable midrange, a driver that can hold up somewhat in the wind and a straight driver that can hold an anhyzer to the ground if necessary.

The ultimate in uncool is something that was released in the last few years and sat on the shelf collecting dust for long enough to go into a clearance bin.

Rocs are cool to answer that question - KC Aviar, Roc, Teebird... all super cool because they have that "no nonsense" aura surrounding the grizzled, headstrong vets who stubbornly, intentionally cycle base plastic.

Boutique discs from Legacy, Millenium, Hyzerbomb are all pretty cool. DGA pretty uncool for whatever reason - could be the circa 2005 marketing.

WAIT WAIT I HAVE IT - the most painful, cringeworthy uncool disc of all:
