My BG setup is almost 3X as much as my Flak4 with 24 discs. And that's with mid-range equipment purchased 1-2 seasons after release, or used. Plus I lose about $100 worth of balls every year.

Pretty much what I figured. Disc golf equipment could double in price and still not even be close to BG.

Haha, glad my wife doesn't read this either...and that she doesn't have access to my CC account . Seems like once a month there's about $30-50 in discs I buy...lately less though.

These are actual costs, free if it was free, no average on the discs prices. Surely didn't see it getting this far when I bought a Cyclone and an MRX at age 15.

21 discs - $309
Octothorpe(shipped) - $310
Customer Cooler Insert - $25?(not sure, still in production)
Platypus Collapsable Bottle - $12
Merrill Boots(only for Diamond X & other non-cement padded courses) - $105
Umbrella - Player Pack
Buck Knife - Free
1st Aid Kit - Free
Lil Wiz - PIF(not sure what I gave up after but we'll say $17)
3 Minis - $5
Petty Cash(gotta have CPT & 5-1 dollars) - $21
Bridie Bag - $4
Sunglasses - $13

Totaling(minus the little stuff I may have forgotten) - $821

Of that, the only current year expenses are the Bag/cooler insert, the Lil Wiz, 2 discs, and the actual cash.

I didn't pay for my bag so that's a savings, as well as a few of my discs.

I paid about like this;
Bag- free($125 retail)
20 discs- $160($250 retail)
Shoes- $45
Extra thick socks- $30
Towels and whatnots-$20

Innova Deluxe $25, bought it new on this website
~13 discs, prices ranging from $0-$10, figure under a $100 for the 13
so less than $125 total.


My 1 disc set up that I use a lot
= $10
