Yeah now I'm considering leaving a champ Teebird in a bucket over the winter since I wouldn't use it during that time. That disc would stiffen up and not make the bag for the few times I play when it's cold out. Freeze/thaw cycles in a bucket might do interesting things, I have no idea.

Skip shots in a gravel parking lot can do wonders; just don't try it on concrete or asphalt.

Upside down skip shots on grass; make sure there are no gravels or rocks in the landing area.

Forehand rollers and grandes on dirt/hardpack

I read about Climo leaving Aviars on his roof to season in the sun.

I seasoned a max weight destroyer that was a meathook in minutes after grinding a good 1-2 mm off the bottom.

Ugh.

How about you just disc down if you’re in some kind of bind? IMO there’s too many people out there in a rush and looking for “seasoned firebirds” that should really be throwing a TB3- and so on and so forth.

The compulsion to bag a certain disc shouldn’t outweigh the need to perform. Just pick up the disc that flies the way you need it to, even if it means admitting you should really be throwing a leopard to your friends, and not a fresh Sexybird.

It hurts my soul to hear so many people saying “throw it at the pavement!”

I nailed this one last week.
Played with a buddy of mine who didn’t play much but wanted to come out to the course for a good time.

1. Go play with buddy who doesn’t play much
2. Let him throw a favorite, well-seasoned, four year old disc at a wooded course
3. Watch noob hyzer to get stuck in a tree
4. Recover from heart attack
5. Throw soon-to-be seasoned disc at the tree for thirty minutes until you dislodge the previously lodged priceless disc
6. Return previously lodged priceless disc to bag and give him your future-eh-oh-well-it’s-gone/water-hole disc
7. Throw newly-seasoned disc and be amazed at how well it flies.
Seasoned up a 168 RDG Armor Gila that way. Flies pretty straight now.

My laundry/storage room has a section of carpet on the concrete wall. Rather than tearing it off, I threw a new DX Roc against it like 100 times.

I'll let you know if it's flippy now.

First I agree with discing down instead of throwing the big boy molds if you don't have the arm for it, just because it says Destroyer or Firebird and all the pro's use them. I think it's awesome when someone lasers a Leo instead of flexes a Firebird as hard as they can to go "straight".

The problem is there's so much variation disc to disc in the same mold. I like how straight Teebirds fly, but I don't like the super beefy ones that fly like a speed 7 Firebird. I have the power to throw Teebirds, and if I go to a less stable mold then those molds have more turn to them than a mild Teebird. There's so much variation, I can throw a mild teebird 370+ and a beefy one is hard to get 320' out of on the same line. So I'd rather beat it in fast and be able to throw it than either hate it for years until I might like it, put it in the closet and forget about it, or resell it unless I have to.
