What were you doing out there in the weeds?

That particular time? Looking for my kid's disc

Not that I haven't had my own shanks to the weeds. They just aren't while throwing green unmarked $50 discs.

2006 Augusta Wraith
Champion Sidewinder
Champ TeeBird
5x Champ Valkyrie
Ontario Big Bird Roc 179g
Ontario DeLa Stamp Roc 180g
2005 USDGC Flagsticks Champion Roc
11x KC Pro Rancho Roc 180g
First run pro Aviar
Champ Gator

I'm fairly sure all the champion plastics are max weight, but would have to weigh to know for sure. Any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance!
Why is nobody talking about that first run sidewinder?!?!?! It’s worth double the next most valuable one in the pic.

Within a few minutes of putting it on eBay someone sent me a side offer of $40 plus shipping. So i'm feeling pretty confident in your $50+ estimate.

It's got a nice skip too if played correctly. From what you've described it sounds like it would be difficult for me to replace it with a new disc (I came back from 10yrs off to find a million new molds and have not caught up at all).

As for the USDC disc, I'm 99% sure its a Roc. I've held off throwing it for so long that I wanted to see if it's value had appreciated enough to sell it (my initial intent), but I'm thinking now that I'll just say screw it and put it in the bag. I have a feeling it could be a go-to disc for a long time.

I'm surprised on the DX circle Roc though, that would be something worth selling I think.

Your memory on the Wraith is spot on! I was excited when the Wraith came out and scored on that one... I alluded to it before, but I recently went out and bought a stack of new discs thinking they'd be better now (one would, right?), but somehow I can "bomb" a Shryke or a Tern and then throw that Wraith low and flat and the discs will end up at the same distance. It also holds anhyser and doesn't flip like those discs can... it always wants to flex out (nice and late as long as it isn't up too high).


On the Valk - its really stiff and if it's wet out it just doesn't feel safe, haha. At one time I had it bagged but I just end up using the wraith for the same type of shots. Your point about dye is a good one, that thing wants to get lost.

Thanks again for your post and for everyone's help. It's a nice little community here.
No worries I came back to disc golf in 2014 from 2009 to find more good new molds from brands I used and ones I Never thought I would see like a strictly overmold brand, well now they have that side brand Streamline that is not overmolds but anyhow mostly focusing on overmolds. Then finding two for Latitude 64 making that set up the trio as #3 in disc sales in the USA, seeing Lighting owner pass on and molds being sold to Gotta Go Gotta Throw, and then seeing that Quest AT is still making discs but now in a crappy Champion like plastic with the 10 meter Brick is now as floppy as a Aerobie Dogobie as well as the 3 disc set not approved due to size that Franklin makes is still available to buy.

Perhaps it was better when first new, but older plastic has also had time to break down and is more prone to catastrophic failure (cracking does not adequately describe what happens to a favorite disc). Honestly, I think it is mostly a nostalgia thing for the plastic when a player first started playing or when premium plastic was still a new thing. And over time the idea that older equals better has become accepted truth, even if not actual fact.

All that said, old plastic is far better and more valuable, so everyone should buy it off of me. The more you pay for it the better it will make you at disc golf, I promise.

BTW, what is a 4 point Z XL going for? Terrible ink but looked to be in great shape and good color for a thrower.

Also, "Twelve Time" not "12x" era tournament stamped Teebird? Super bright neon grellow, 7/10. Lightly inked but only a thrower anyway.
