Mine didn't turn out the way I wanted basically it became a Eagle L / Eagle X

+1 for baseball diamond.

I throw drives at the backstop from center field, gets good practice in along with beating in discs.

Picking nits here, but there's really no "artificial" way to beat up a disc. You beat it up, or you don't. I guess I'd call it accelerated beating or strategic beating.

Personally, I prefer limiting the type of damage that comes from throwing in parking lots or against brick walls. But I cringe when watching people bend discs to far... obviously that's ridiculous, but it just goes to say that a lot of this is personal preference. I'm willing to wait a little too long for discs to season, perhaps, but I'm also willing to adjust my technique and shot selection while I wait.

I put my new discs under Brent's mom's mattress. After a week, they'll have taken the sort of pounding that would take years on the course.

Recently I decided to accelerate the wear on a KC Pro Roc so that I can have another beat up backup. I told my five year old that he can throw it whenever we throw discs at the practice basket in the back yard. He likes to go to the other end of the yard and throw as hard as he can which as often as not hits a tree branch, skips off concrete, hits the fence, etc. It's already coming along nicely with some good knicks and scratches. I'm guessing in a few weeks it will be perfect.

Honestly, if I want to break in a disc, I will throw it into my practice putting. It wont be apart of my normal putt, but when I get to the disc in question, I slam it into the chains. Helps to simulate more natural wear... Another good way is to just flick the disc into a tree from about 10 feet. Throwing plastic into concrete and bricks causes more traumatic damage which I dont think replicates the qualities of a 'seasoned' disc as accurately.
