He's been on the "underground" team for around 2 years.

This is probably why you see so many ppl upset. I havent seen this posted but this is from the discraft email that convinced me to buy it.

"Secondly... SALES. While there are tons of great deals offered, the real catch of the weekend is the Mystery Box. Clocking in at $99, this box is loaded to the brim with goodies. From multiple baskets and bags to the rarest Buzzz discs in existence, the number of surPrizes given this weekend are on a whole new level. "

Now. Read that and explain some of these boxes please......

It's not an unknown source, it's Discraft. Host an Ace Race and you get wholesale pricing. Yes, the chance I got something great was minimal, and the chainstar lite would have been cheaper to buy outright. I was hoping for a pro or a grip bag, the signed disc, and if not, all the items would go up for raffles at my Ace Race, which is what's going to happen. I may sell the Buzzz I got for $15 or so to get a decent chunk back, but, raffles will bring in more than that anyways. Whatever we raise, I always bring up to the next $100 mark, so I'm not really paying myself back anything.

The wholesale pricing is really nice, except you do need to order a minimum of 25 discs to get anything, you can't just order a basket and be done. I'll likely place an order again this year and sell the discs for a couple $ more than I pay to raise a few $$ here and there and give people a good deal, too.

All said and done, I'm a gambling man, lol.
