Default Players Pack Likes and Dislikes

I'm TD'ing a B Tier for the third year now and I'm running out of ideas for the players pack. In the past years we have included dry fit shirts, custom discs, mini clipboards, can huggers, BBQ lunch, towels, reusable shopping bags, and mini drivers. Last years player pack value was $70.

This year I'm trying to get a beer sponsor so I was thinking of pint glasses and maybe swapping the dry fit shirt for another custom stamped disc from Legacy (years past have been Innova and will probably order from them again this year). Lunch will also be included again this year.

So what do you like to see in your players pack and what do you dislike?

FWIW I searched and didn't find an active thread since 2013. Also this isn't a discussion of whether player packs are a waste of money. Please post those comments in another thread. Thanks.

Pint glasses are cool. Good smart wool socks are a good players pack item. Nothing wrong with repeating some items, depending on the location. If you are catering to the same people every year or if there is a decent turnover of new golfers. The only thing in a players pack that I don't really need is more discs.

I have gotten a couple of beer glasses i use regularly and enjoy. A camping stool is also a nice possibility that i don't see listed in your past items.

Good on you, I'm so sick of polyester t-shirts now. First one was nice, second one was fine, but they seem to be almost as common as discs in players packs now. I do like a 2nd disc better.

But that having been said, almost anything other than discs and shirts is good for originallity. Towels are great (and cheap if you source them well), water bottles are alright. Other ideas: Mini clipboards for score cards, mini sharpies, and absolutely anything not directly disc golf related, like beer glasses.

They always have at least one CFR option that is alittle off the beaten track when it comes to the popularity of the mold. This year it is a metal flake whippet but I have yet to see anyone choose it. I know a guy(coincidentally is a member here) who would love to get his hands on one. Or maybe instead of adding more stuff to the player pack, instead put that money towards trophies.

I vastly prefer vouchers, with which I can choose from a good assortment of merchandise, over anything a TD is likely to pre-select. Even better of the merchandise includes some custom-printed dri-fits and discs.

The best thing in a players pack is choice. Not much sucks more than getting a disc you can't see.
