Three honestly aren't thhe worst diac I've ever thrown, Quest 100m Lazer I'm looking at you.

But it's got a weird feel in the hand, and becuase of the big dip on the wing they an loose stability pretty quickly for a Champ plastic disc.

There are worse flyers but unpredictability in a disc is almost worse than any other issue.

I'm assuming the OP is Sky, and she wants to know if she can put platebee in the dishwasher

I heard that a lot of people that washed their disc, and it melted and got strange forms. I've washed it about 4 times, and everything is okay, may it be because I my dishwasher https://ianboer.com.au/washing/dishwashers/ is a brand new one and you can choose the temperature and the way the washing has to complete.

Nice necro bump.

I'd think that if one does not use the heated drying at the end, it should be okay. But I just hand-wash my discs when they need it...

I mean I can't imagine a scenario where I had so many golf discs that were so dirty that I thought I needed to put them in the dishwasher. I mean discs generally don't need soap, just a rinse and dry. If I've got a scuffed-up disc I want to pretty-up so I can sell or trade I rub it with a magic eraser, then rinse and dry it. Putting them in a dishwasher just seems...something. Not a good something.

The Champion plastic sure does. I will love when the Grove mold finally breaks for those new players getting discs from Dicks Sporting goods or from Academy Sports. Even Scheel's the biggest all around sports store in both of the Dakotas is better at discs golf and has the most popular molds from the top brands as to the sales of other online retailers.

I like XT and R-Pro plastic, but only after it's been played awhile, and lost that "Super-Tacky" feel.

I'd be worried a dishwasher would just bring that tacky feel back.
