Default Best way to beat in a disc?

Sorry for posting a lot of different threads, but I love all this DG knowledge. I need to beat in some of my discs a little more. Is there a fast way to do this or is the best to just play rounds? I was thinking lots of spike hyzers and tomahawks. But if anyone else has ideas please share.

I don't know if I'd really recommend it, but I've seen people run over their discs (intentionally) with a car to beat/break them in..

How about putting them in the clothes dryer on no heat?

I also have this question. I've gone as far as throwing them at the ground a number of times before a round/throw. I've also stood 5 feet from the chains and just hucked them full speed at the basket. Seems to work. Also there's some concrete to the left of hole #2 at Highland (I live 2 miles away) and when I throw a new disc that's overstable it'll skip off that and it seems to help it beat-in fairly quick.

I just beat my Dx Teebird into perfection but sadly it's white so I can't play with it in Winter. Hoping to find a quick way to beat up my new orange one so I can use that over the winter.

I have used the clothes dryer to break in disc's before. It's really loud though, so make sure the wife/girlfriend/significant other isn't home at the time.

Also...throwing spike hyzer's and thumbers into the infield of a baseball diamond works really well too (As long as the infield isn't grass).
