Default OK I was breaking in a dx Teebird when I did this....

Now I know breaking in means using the disc and wearing them by using them but will this effect the break in process at all or should it break in like it should? Also, beware of metal antenna towers on the courses!

heat it up a little & you should be able to fix it somewhat. shouldn't hurt the flight, I have a few DX that look like that

I mean seriously a metal antenna tower right on the course lol? Yeah I should have missed it anyway. But it was a direct hit.

by taking out a chunk like that you saved yourself at least twenty more bad throws to achieve that degree of beatness. it's dx plastic. it's a good thing. that's why everyone buys dx teebirds, right?

Sweet - so are you saying I should just keep throwing at it lol? I guess I just need to aim better. That one got away from me.

I hit a brace on a chain link fence a few years ago with a DX Valkyrie and it looks almost exactly like yours.

I'm guessing it's alright. I threw it right after and it throws exactly the same - hooking to the right.

no need to intentionally beat it in unless you really want to. if it's already doing what you want it to do, then just let it break in on its own.
