Yeah I've got a buddy who also uses DX Beasts. He goes through one every 3 or so years. I threw one once just to see what it would do BH, and it did indeed land on it's flight plate.

Some discs in DX are about every 2-2.5 years with weekend use. Dragons being known for this, I have to get new of those every 2-2.5 years due to the plastic being a R-DX. Older not as rubbery feeling Dragons from the 2000's that had only the Air part to the disc could go about 3 years but sometime in the 2000's the discs changed and were rubbery but could wear off the disc, had one of those then my last two have been the rubbery with latest one being a true R-DX like a stiffer R-Pro but if made in DX plastic as disc is not as durable as R-Pro.

Unless you were ever lucky to see the Pro D up to 2006 as in 2006 sometime the plastic changed from stiffer then 2000's DX to a softer material. Old Pro D was as stiff as old 2000's Classic grid Aviars. D=Pro D from DGA was still good till 2007 as they got the old Pro D plastic for the remainder of 2006. I used a 173-174 gram Magnet in this plastic for years as closer putter with a modern Pro D Magnet at same weigh , Still have the stiff Pro D Magnet for my beginner bag as for first time player can use a lighter putter (due to being worn in) for putting and get away with it.

Field throwing at the soccer field today I shanked my week old champ Eagle out onto the road; with rush hour traffic. It, uh, skipped off the top of a car before landing right side up in the ideal spot to get run over. For a couple minutes while I slowly walked over there. I started telling cars to hit the bright pink disc for bonus points. It does feel more flexie now, and perhaps has broken in some in flight.

Just play a 1 disc round in a wooded course for a few rounds. You'll not only learn the disc a bit better, but you'll also beat it in pretty quick.

Update on the thrashed FD!

Very effective. Disc now gives me a consistent 7/6/-1/1 at lower speeds in the woods and the calm. Tested in a head/side wind, and it actually turned all the way over and cut rolled.

It's now a perfect middle ground between my largely stable fresh FDs and my Underworlds.

I think the S plastic was a good choice, as the abuse resulted in few truly deep gashes or chunks, rather the scuffs remained surface. The drives into the concrete wall had an impact on the wing shape, bending the PLH down slightly at 3-4 different places. DX or Pro I have seen take the impact and less effectively spread the energy out, instead having the PLH in one small zone practically bend in on itself.

i miss the fd for carving up the woods

i had a seasoned sfd and it had the 7 6 -1 1 and its probably the most useful flight numbers for carving woods holes sneaky long and accurate
