No base or mid-grade plastic available in Spokane? Or are you guys just getting hosed up there?

From the article: Discs, depending on the quality of plastic (“Champion” plastic is a good starting point), vary between $16-22 apiece

From the comments: Such a fun sport, everyone should give it a try. You can buy a decent disc for as little as $15!

I suppose we all could disagree on what constitutes as decent.

I'll be the guy cursing loudly on the rusty truck hole on Porcupine. And the next one, and even more going back up that motherf*cking hill on the one after that.

I liked this comment at the current end:

Greatest sport ever. I haven't even picked my golf clubs up in 1.5 years and will never look back. Disc golf is a more fun, more exhilarating, more athletic, and less frustrating version of ball golf. Cheaper is an added bonus.
