I thought the same. I wonder how long Steve has been scheming up this list of illegal disc modifications. Or is that just a stream-of-consciousness rant?

Haha that's a heck of a list! I've messed with some discs but not like that... I do have my rotating basket though so Muuuuhahahahaha!

I've had success messing with discs, either unwarping or artificially breaking them in, I've also made a few unthrowable. There's definitely an art to tuning.

It's about fair competition.. If it's not "stock" off the shelf then it's an unfair advantage. I heard a rumour innova or someone did a 20 or 50 disc run at some point just so a pro could throw a custom disc/or plastic. Don't know if it's true...

One of the local legends was talking about when the driver/ putter(?) first came out and he played a tournament (somewhere?) and he was the only guy that had an Eagle(?) Maybe an Aviar... Everyone else didn't have one and he ended up blowing the doors off, just nuked them on distance... They told him if he came back next year he couldn't bring it.

And I thought.. Damn that's an "OG discer" right there!

I'm currently seeking funding for a disc manufacturing company tentatively named Nd Discs. The business plan is to be a boutique manufacturer specializing in metalflake putters.

Will the metal flakes be made of neodymium magnets?

Due to ethical and possibly legal constraints I'm unable to say either yes or no. I'll say this: I can't say they "seek" chains; but they are "attracted" to them. Also, if you do hit the cage, roll aways are unlikely.

And you may find it difficult to extract the putter from the target

Discmania missed an opportunity with their ‘Neo’ plastic.
