Best I've found was a local old hippie who sold discs out of the back of his truck that would be happy to discuss discs with you, then let you try as many as you wanted in the field behind the course's parking lot. It was just as you describe: a very knowledgeable "salesman" with no brand affiliation to push you to "Throw Gyro!" or join "Team Trilogy" or "Become a Discmaniac!" with a large open space to test out new-to-you molds.

It is great for players, especially less experienced players, however, unless the shop is located right next to a course, it's logistically pretty difficult. It would be awesome if more shops had a "Demo Day" and scheduled a trip to a local course with free, open areas, for people to test discs, but I'm also not sure how well that would translate into sales, which is their bottom line... I'm rambling. I like the idea, and loved my old Hippie, but I'm not shocked that we don't see this setup more often.

Hazy Shade will let you throw any of their used discs for sale in the driving ranga and has a small compliment of demo discs!
