Now. Read that and explain some of these boxes please......
You left out this little nugget:

“When you spend $99.99 you are guaranteed to receive a box worth a whole lot more in retail value.”

I'm also thinking that bean counter took a lunch break and the warehouse went wild then. I have seen a couple of almost identical boxes to ours, but they had an bigger extra as well (Discraft hoodie or Discraft Tournament bag).

I'm surprised by the mystery box trend. The longer I play, the more specific I am. I know what molds, plastic types, and weights I prefer. The thought of handing someone $100 and having them put a box of disc golf stuff together for me is just not appealing.

Yeah I've been watching this thread out of morbid curiosity.

Coincidentally he wasn't the only discraft sponsored player to win one of the top prizes. #mysteryboxgate2019

Overall I'm glad I bought a mystery box for $100, heck this thread was worth that in entertainment value alone. It was kind of like Christmas, you open it up and realize you just got a bunch of things you wouldn't normally buy for yourself. I mean I wasn't even playing disc golf in 2012, and now I have a brand new Discraft ace race mini from 2012 -- priceless!

Actually though everything I got was pretty cool, I showed my mystery box to some buddies and they all thought it was a really good haul. But I probably wouldn't do another one like this unless I knew an insider who was filling orders, that seems to be the best strategy...

Exactly. I'm not at all interested in spending $100 to get 3 or 4 discs I won't throw and a couple t-shirts I'm not that interested in. Did you all get to specify your shirt size? As someone who wears small/medium depending on fit, I'd hate getting a bunch of L and XL clothing.
