I bought a PFN SW that wasnt quite US enough. I made it noticeably more US by just smashing it into the ground a few times every time I had to wait on a tee for about 2 weeks.

It worked great. So great that I flipped it over and lost it. Back to the Mamba.

Normally I throw thumbers with a disc straight into the ground over and over.

Yesterday, I had an icon patriot that I just bought that was almost like a teebird stable to overstable. I decided I needed to back over it a few times. Results pending, but no such thing as too flippy since I throw a decent amount of rollers anyway.

I had the same issue with a Champ TeeBird I aggressively rubbed on rough concrete top to bottom . Where did we go wrong? I rather like the dryer idea. Maybe I could find one of those rotation raffle ticket bins?

Am I the only one here who breaks discs in the old fashioned way? Throwing them.

Seemed to work pretty well. Now instead of being a rival it's more like the patriot I expected - will hyzer flip to straight to gently turn right for most of it's flight. I did the same thing with a new mongoose - I wanted to make sure it would definitely turn since it's now my roller disc. Worked pretty perfectly, I think.

I'd much rather wear in a disc normally, or buy a used version of something to put in my bag, but sometimes when that's not possible, 'alternatives' are handy to have.

I'm just going to let the process happen on it's own by rotating between backups. However whoever said the wall of firewood had a good idea.

I don't seem to have any problem hitting enough trees to beat discs in as the good lord intended, so seasoning discs happens soon enough. But actively thinking of ways to break in discs because you can't seem to hit enough trees to get the job done?


Damn... wish I was that good!

You want to beat up the wing tips, more so than the top and bottom.
