Is Discrafts doing these small special runs just to get the "value" up on their disc? to make them exlucive and rare
Probably taking care of their top pros as a priority during trying times for production. I'm not on email lists or newsletters or social media so I miss out on most of that stuff. Not that I care, there are still plenty of frisbees to be had. I got turned off of the limited stuff when I thought I'd like to try an ESP Luna last year.

When they first started to sell the swirl ESP, their injection process must have been slightly different. There were a lot of discs that looked like they had swastikas on them.

I regret not taking screenshots of retailers selling them.

I'm sure they received complaints because the swirls note have more branches and the curves don't seem as angular.

I just bought a ESP pulse from Nate Doss' backup stash. I've never thrown one and I don't know what to expect. What is it similar to? Is it worth bagging? (there are 2 Pulses left on nate doss' website if anyone is interested)

They beefy. Thumb track type of groove on top of the plate. If you are looking for an OS fast driver it will fill the role

So. Gonna have a few beginners off n on with me this spring playing for the first time. Was thinking about piecing together a "starter pack" of sorts. What would you guys recommended? Gonna use this as a reason to buy some Discraft discs. One of the individuals has played a few times, but nothing major.

I think I seen that Discraft has a three disc pack. Is it any good?

I generally start most beginners out with pretty understable plastic. Maybe some X Heat, X Avenger SS for drivers. Comets, Meteors and Status for mids. Keep the putters near neutral. If they keep playing these discs will fill slots, but they will mitigate the usual noob hyzers for now.

Or X Buzzzes (if you can find any). That would work well enough as a putter, but you could also grab a few random putters for people to choose from. No strong recommendation for drivers, other than keeping speeds on the lower side.

I learned to throw backhand and FH with an old Z avenger, X Buzzz, and a Z magnet. All three are great choices for beginners.
