I know the disc golf guy had a video from last years (2013) USDGC that had an interview with the TeeBoxx guys. They even did a demo on how it works, cant remember if they showed the shuffle in action though...???

I am very intrigued. I wonder how viable it would be at a low traffic course though (but no retailers within hundreds of miles)? Will have to get a quote and find out.

I have heard the selection is good and the prices are good. I will buy a disc from the teeboxx just to make a video and give my opinion. for picky guys like me though I doubt I would ever use it consistently. for new players a teeboxx with dx plastic sounds like a homerun.

Our "Shuffle & Release" design is like no other ARC. It's our own design, in fact we hope to use it for other applications. It's setup like a coil machine but it's belt driven and shuffles from front (viewing area) to back in a circle. So a lot different from a juke box in the way that you can see many discs at once. We've included an LCD screen to give more improved product info and possibly audio/video capability. As soon as we finish our proto we will post video and pics.

I got a disc at the USDGC last year from the machine and it was very user friendly and as I remember, a little larger than most traditional vending machine. Great concept and product. Management evidentally has good business sense and protocals for the product including a business plan, real time data and testing from an event like the USDGC. Good luck in the future.

I can't wait to see these cropping up at remote courses with no good disc shop nearby (I'm looking at you Mt. Pleasant, MI!). I don't think they could hold their own in Columbus due to the number of retailers selling discs (including a dedicated disc golf store with two locations), but in Mid-Michigan, or up in Northwest OH where I learned to play these things would clean up!

My only experience with this machine was at Winthrop for the 2013 USDGC. The machine was filled with only McPro Rocs but it was pretty cool to be able to use a vending machine to get discs!!
