yeah, i hate that too. when it was colder out and dry, my finger actually began bleeding over the calloused ridge where my disc is released. i usually just throw them until it wears off on its own, but i could easily see doing a gentle sidewalk scraping to accelerate the process.

Use a full sized stanley type knife and be precise, wear mag glasses, be ergonomic in your alignment. I worked in a factory for many years in the injection molding dept and trimmed off much flash when I was a young man on a bike.

flashing never bothered my BH, but itll rip my finger open after a few FH hucks
i deflash most of my discs now if its noticeable, and i also appreciate seeing a discs true stability from the first throw; ill throw other molds if i want something more stable

i deflash with fairly fine sandpaper, its very clean and about 30-60 sec a disc
some plastic like opto really benefits from manual deflashing, it takes too long to naturally lose it

look, this is the best way and you wont have to get anything to do it. you just need another champion driver. i rub the bottom of the disc with flashing against the bottom of another champion disc. just rub the two bottoms together for a minute and like magic it works. nice and smooth no damage to either discs. works like a charm.

And if you light some candles and go slow, in about nine months you might be surprised to find yourself the proud owner of a shiny new mini.

Some discs In Star or Champion have enough flashing that trying to remove the offence is going to make it worse and only throwing disc in chains of a basket or something equally rough will work. I got that on a Star Shark so bad one time I could not use it until a windy day made the disc have to be used for wind putting and the flashing was then Almost gone after that round.
