Default Winter Indoor Disc Golf with Pocket Disc

We were throwing these around at the local DD store and everyone was really impressed with them. I noticed they can be caught well by mini baskets. So how about a few people each set up two or three indoor holes inside their houses with mini baskets and then have a traveling disc golf party?

I randomly found one of these at Dick's last week and bought it on a whim... I was surprised by how well they fly. They're really fun to mess around with.

I laugh at this commercial. It's ridiculous. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought of ordering a couple though.

I got one and it's pretty fun.

I've been throwing it all over the house and haven't broken a thing yet. You can even chuck it at the ceiling fan and not cause any damage.

I would recommend this to any avid thrower of discs. I picked mine up for $10 and carry it around everywhere.

I think I need one. How do they fly? Overstable or understable? Can anyone get them up to 350+?

Pocket Discs are awesome. I've only owned the indoor light ones, not the sport type.
bought one each for my house, a 22yo cousin, and a 10yo cousin for Christmas

Not even trolling here... right-side up they are straight-stable. Upside-down they are fairly overstable and you can do flex shots.

Never thrown one outdoors, but I'll take mine to the warehouse and see if we can get it 100'+

I got a pocket disc recently. Not a light one. I threw a demo model that flew really well, but this one seemed to dive right at first. Played some finesse catch with it for awhile at about 25 feet and it started to loosen up. If I throw it hard, I still have to throw it high and left to get it to come out flat and straight, but I'm sure those throws would go well over 100 feet if I were outside.
