Default Stay away from Westside Misprint package

I spent $50 and got a Balista (14 speed) meathook, an Enforcer (12 speed) meathook, A Warship (5 speed), a Verdict (5 speed) and a Judge putter.

One would think they would put a better variety of discs in the package. I cannot throw 14 and 12 speed discs with my arm and the two 5 speeds do not fill any need in my bag. I am completely disappointed that they have nothing in 6-11 speed and the high speed drivers are all completely overstable. The two 5 speeds have the same botched stamp as well.

For sure i will not be ordering any packs of any kind from Westside again, as it appears they didn't even try to give a decent assortment. I am glad i only wasted money on the 5 pack as i was seriously thinking of bumping up my order. The intention was to hand these out as CTP prizes at league but the only usable discs for most players in the league, also have the worst stamp.

i have contacted them and will pass on any response I get.

The thing about misprint packages is that when you buy them, it's basically saying "I'm ok with receiving a random allotment of discs I may or may not like"

You ordered misprints and then complained about stamps?

Sounds to me like you got a great mix.

Ballista (not a meathook, not even OS really), Enforcer (OS), Warship (straight stable, slightly OS), Verdict (OS), and a nice judge!

GIT GUD SCRUB. Dont even see a problem here.

Edit: you bought misprints... for CTP prizes... AND expected them to be pretty?

Man I really dislike Trilogy plastic and am not in the least a fan of WestSide and I think you're being overly critical. That's not a bad mystery box and you can not be upset getting random discs in such a box!

I could happily play a round with just that as my bag. Sure it stinks not to have a fairway, but have you thrown the Warship yet? It’s long as heck for a mid.

I get the OP's frustration, but you pays your moneys and you takes your chances. And results like this are why I never order mystery boxes of any kind...
