Time and money. Takes the retailers a lot longer to take a picture and ID each individual one. DGC has bumped their prices up a dollar or on most discs that have pics but it's not enough to sway me away from buying from them. especially since I've hit the max discount from my years of buying from them.

My answer here is "any".

A new brick and mortar moved in close enough to my work that I can get there during lunch.

A whole shop just DG, well stocked (for 2022) with many brands. A place to try test models, yes please, sign me up!

Found 4 discs there calling my name yesterday.

If possible, 100percent of my business will go there. I want them to stay!

Is there any possibility that there is confirmation bias regarding a particular disc ?

It's similar to people choosing to throw a disc because a certain pro throws that disc.

Or the disc discussions on a forum like this can predispose someone to expect a disc to perform a certain way.

online conversation:
1) Oh this disc is easy distance
2) buys disc. Throws disc. Goes same distance as every other disc, but continues to throw disc, proceeds to tell everyone about the easy distance.

I do not understand how you're getting that from this discussion.

No time to wait for them to cool properly when every stack that they yank out of the mold sells out, domey or not!
