I can't believe WS didn't assume what you wanted.

What’s wrong with his results? He got 5 misprints (in decent variety, might I add).

5 discs for $50 AND the discs can make up a playable bag...sounds like a good deal to me. Ignore the numbers on the discs. You got a solid putter, 2 great mids including a Warship which is basically a fairway, and 2 widely thrown drivers. Most players I know would be quite happy with that.

Not that anything is wrong with it, but it obviously was not what the OP wanted to see, and the example of the OP's disappointment is why I don't order mystery boxes myself.

Those who like ordering mystery boxes, have at it, and enjoy it. For me, I want to know what I'm getting as much as possible.

Basically the point is that I expected them to vary the discs a bit more than they did. Give me at least one in the 6-11 speed range. I don't think that is too much to ask. The repeated stamp i am unhappy with says "Disc Golf". Looks like a disc you would buy at the dollar store and I got two of them . If you go to their site they have quite a variety of misprint disc, why not put a full variety in the box?.

For those that would be happy with the assortment, they still have the 'deal" on their website. Go for it. I personally think the deal "blows chunks" and of course i will never do it again. So much for discs as CTP prizes. For the record I subsidize the disc with $5 out of my own pocket and my $5 CTP buy in. These discs are not worth $5 to me, much less $10.

Live. learn and adapt.

Why can't they still be CTP prizes?
If folks dont like the stamp they can wipe it easily enough. Still a brand new disc.

Because the stamp is so cheezy, I am embarrassed to offer it as it is, and I got two of them.

The second statement makes the first irrelevant.

There are no legitimately objective issues with the deal. The only complaints are purely subjective.

This comes across more as a personal need to vent rather than a consumer protection PSA.

Have you gotten input from the players in the league? If you are offering the discs as CTP prizes, then it is their satisfaction that matters.

Focusing on the stamp instead of the fact that it is a new/unthrown useful disc... that's the tail wagging the dog, that's majoring in the minors, etc.

Unless it’s a Huklab stamp. Proven to add 50’ especially when stamped over a factory stamp.
