Default Every time I go to Dick's Sporting Goods

I take whatever detour is necessary to somehow pass by the golf discs and then I flip through the racks in great detail even though I have no intention of buying any of them... except maybe that McBeth 4x destroyer... I would do this tonight if I went even though I was just there last night to get a bike tube. Does anyone else share this affliction?

I usually do to see how many Grooves are in stock, and see if there is any Destroyers or Thunderbirds, that I could flip, or that have a way different PLH. I wish they would carry Shyrkes in anything other than tyedyed Champ, though if someobe wants to buy it and loose it with no ink, where I can find it, thats fine with me.

Incidentally, I'm also glad that they finally bought the dicks.com domain.

At the Dick's near where I live I am usually thinking: "I can get that disc a lot cheaper ordering online and waiting a couple of days to get it..." The Dick's around here are quite expensive.

Afaik Dick's only carries Innova... I never heard of any other brand until I stumbled across a Latitude 64 missilen, then went to an ace race and discovered Discraft... I've only bought one disc at Dick's since my starter pack which started it all, and that was a star mako3 that caught my eye because it was so different, and it's been a constant favorite of mine since

I drive by a Dick's every day to work, and have perused the end display with the Innova discs. They always have Grooves, Aviars, Beasts, Daedalus', Katanas, and Valkyries; sometimes a few Teebirds, Roc3s, and Wraiths. They cost more than online options, and only have discs in max weights.

I view Dick's Sporting Goods to be a disc golf convenience store, that I would shop at only if I for some reason wanted one of the above listed discs immediately, and had no other options

Exactly! Yet I still have to check out their discs whenever I'm there

It was Dick's that got me to finally try out disc golf.


I have always wanted to try it but never did. Not long ago I was at Dick's and stopped at the discs. I started picking through them and had no idea what I was looking at but it was the spark to get me to actually try disc golf. I did not buy anything, again, I had no clue, but I went home and reached out to a local social media disc golf group. A few days later I was on a course getting help and playing.

Galyans was awesome. They actually tried to have equipment for every sport out there. Dick's only really supports ball sports, hunting, and fishing.


To the OP, yes I go by the disc golf section every time, and funny enough the one by me has a 4x McBeth Destroyer in hot pink that calls out to me.
