$20 is steep? I'm seeing a lot of premium plastic around here hovering around that range so I never really thought it was that bad, especially for a disc that will be hard to lose and will continue to be useful in the bag for years to come.

Yeah, I guess it's not that bad if reg GL is $17ish. Good point.

It would be nice if they released some non-Dyemax ones though. None of the ones I have seem like they'd be bright enough for my old eyes to find on errant tee shots. I have always heard that they're very similar to Optos so I never cared to try one. I loved the bubblegum pink Opto I had, so it was never a big deal. Then I found the Proxy was very close in flight and didn't suffer from the same problems the Pure has and stopped caring altogether!

The GLs are nice. A little steep just for a cool stamp, but yeah, white is hard to lose. I'm considering getting another before they are gone.

Yeah, the only gold lines I can find are the decos for a hefty price. Recycled gold is nice but it isn't as durable as gold.

Again, twenty dollars is hefty?
