Default Raised print inside rim.

Hey guys,

Not sure why Discraft in particular seems to have aggressively raised print on the inside of the rim... Right where you grip the disc!
I have a few molds with this issue... Any tips on removing this without causing damage?
Thought about a semi-fine sandpaper...
But open to tips before attempting.

Wondering why they don’t mark their discs differently....

No help with your question, but... I actually like the feel of the lettering when I use a power grip with my Buzzzs. Predators, too, I think. I'm not sure about Zones and Drones. I'll have to pay attention sometime.

Seems you're on the right track for removal with a fine sandpaper.

Couldn't you just rotate the disc in your hand slightly?

I don't like the raised lettering either but yeah just rotate to a spot where you don't feel it.

Jim's not alone on liking the feel of the printing.

Like others have said, switch where you grip.

Sanding the letters down should work, but it'll still leave it a bit rough, even if you finish with finer than 220 grit Probs better than the lettering from your perspective, but I'm thinking if you don't like the way the lettering feels, you still might not be happy with the way the sanded spot feels either.


...especially now that I've planted that seed in your head.

I mean.....you can use a plastic polish and some 3000 grit and get it pretty darn smooth....it'll just take ya till spring....

Does that fall under the illegal disc modification rules?

This. Yes, some of my Discraft discs have the raised lettering, but none of them so much that the entire rim is compromised. Just grip it in another spot...

I like having the choice to grip the lettered part of the rim or the smooth part. Different weather conditions dictate which I choose. Seems like some of my older discraft discs had a crosshatch pattern across a quarter of the rim for that very reason.

In my experience, a razor blade works better than sanding. Just be careful.

I can't stand any texture on the inner rim, that's why I refuse to throw those discs. Except for the Zone. In which case I rotate and hold it where it's clean.
