Never thought about selling discs. Guess it makes sense to not write on them if that’s a possibility.

You are free to put what ever you like on them. I have seen all kinds of stuff, some cool things and other items that puzzled me. I have seen flight lines on discs for those who forget what a disc does when thrown properly.

Some of mine have the following. "If you find me you own me." It will be inside the rim. Well there is one other thing. If I ace with a disc, the date, where it happen and any money won goes on the flight plate. Plus any witness statements if I am playing with a group will be there as well.

I know that it's not against the rules, but is there any reason to not write on my discs?

I might start doing it, just so I can scream "Liar!" at my discs when they don't go where I thought they would.

Seriously, I've found a few discs over the years where players had done exactly as you're proposing. No harm.

Bearing in mind that your improvement, and the beating in of the discs, will change those descriptions. When you're throwing much further, that same disc you labeled "turns left" may wind up to be "slight right turn".

You also have to remember a disc will fly differently depending on if you throw it backhand or forehand. You could quickly get a lot of markings on your discs. Backhand - glides long, hard left. Forehand - glides long, soft right. Thumber - , Tomahawk - , Roller......

If the disc doesn't have the flight numbers on it, I write them on the inside of the rim once I decide it is a keeper.... along with last name and phone number.

I've been playing for years and write on my disc. It might say "more glidey Getaway," or "more OS Explorer" whatever. For the longest time I even wrote my putting routine on my discs

Realized I can't read the flight numbers without my glasses. So I'm thinking of writing those on there too.

You can do what you want, but usually you'll have your discs memorized quick.

Also, the "turns hard left" and stuff like that will change as you get better and multiple times, so you're gonna leave yourself quickly obsolete notes.

Just learn the ratings system and if your disc doesn't have numbers, just google it. This guy made some good videos on what the ratings all means, start with the earlier, bottom videos:

One of my first 5 discs I ever purchased was a Full Foil SuperColor Buzzz disc. I knew people would put their name and phone number on the back of the disc, so I did. Black magic marker in huge letters that covered the whole back of the disc. So embarrassing that I had to black out all of the printing I had done. Don't show that disc to many people. Anyway, your disc so write what you want on it.
