Yep same. Every time. I have two very athletic teenage daughters and we end up there a lot for random sports equipment and EVERY DAMN TIME... I walk over the to disc golf rack as if there will be something besides Grooves and Tyedye Katanas for $18. There isn't. I know there isn't... yet every time I go over and look.

Big 5 a few blocks from Dicks carries trilogy starter packs and lots of DX Innova. But basically the same experience. chance is near zero I would buy one of those discs but if i'm in there for a soccer bag or an Ice hockey mouth piece or a new softball... i'm looking at the disc rack.

I don’t even throw any Innova discs and have no plans to ever throw another one...

...and I still stop at the rack of discs at Dick’s

I browse through Dick's discs every time I go there, and sometimes I even make a special trip just to see if they have restocked.

I don't buy much, but I do like that I can paw and eye the plastic and sometimes I find a nice disc.

Yeah, it's full retail, but it's the same price as every other brick and mortar (including PIA) and one shop I know charges even more than Dick's!

Every time I go to Meijer I have to stop by the disc golf section. The discs never change, but... I have to.

Too bad it's all high speed drivers besides the Skeeters, VRocs, and Aviars.

Yea, I stop by and check out the display, most of the times I go to Dick's. Since they move the display around the store in different seasons, part of the challenge is finding the display.

Bought a starter pack there, then another one! I have bought a few other discs there, the price is about the same as PIAS. So I usually buy at PIAS, better selection. (RAL and DUR locations only!)

I also look for the display at Cloud Nine, whenever I am in there.

I don't even go in our Dick's store anymore, they have so few disks it isn't even worth it. Scheels carries a respectable selection of various brands of disks and I have to sort through their whole selection every time I go in, but I certainly don't need anything right now!

Same here, just have to see what they have, every time.

Pretty sure I've told this story in another thread, but why not. For my b-day this year my son wanted to get me a disc, and he wanted to pick it out himself. So my wife takes him to the local Dick's, where he proceeds to randomly pick out a Champ Roc3. I only throw two Innova molds, a Star Teebird and a Champ Roc3. Kid has great taste...
