Is there any unique ways to recycle old/broken/damaged/unusable discs? Have you seen any cool art pieces that someone created? If not, any cool ideas?

I’ve been Team Trilogy for a few years now. I recently switched to putting with the soft Warden (insert Roberts excitement here!), but after running our Trilogy Challenge last weekend, I’m really liking the Keystone. I’ve never cared for beadless putters, but I do seem to putt much better with these 2 than I did with the beaded ones. How soon until the soft Keystone comes out?

Hey, Gang! Thanks for everything you do for disc golf. I have two questions. Assuming the owner is nowhere in sight, what is the best way to deal with a barking or aggressive dog on the course? Also, what is the best way to deal with a dog that is waiting for me to throw my disc so it can retrieve it? I like dogs, but I don’t want holes in my discs.

Thank you for taking my question.

I have 18 molds in my bag. 6 putters, 6 mids, and 6 drivers. 

Is this too many discs? In the following post I’ll list them all, because otherwise it goes over the 500 character limit. (Thus the warning for the long question.) 

Thanks. And don’t sugarcoat your answer, just keep it real. 

Putters: DX Colt for my turnovers, ChallengerSS for straight/understable, Warden for flat, Judge for straight, Slammer for overstable, And I putt with a Mercy. 

Mids: dx shark for turnovers, Patrol for understable, mako3 for straight, buzzz/sling for  straight/stable, gator for overstable. 

Fairway Drivers: Thief for turnovers, Crave for straight, and Escape for overstable 

Distance drivers: beat in thunderbird for understable, AvengerSS for straight, and Viking for overstable/power sidearm

I have a question about the Westside Discs Warship, and its flight numbers. I see on the DD page, it has it listed as a 5,6,0,1 but all 4 that i own, have it stamped as a 6,5,0,1. Can you shine some light on which may be more accurate and why? And would you suggest this as a midrange, or something slower, for someone who’s been playing about a year. Thanks, and as always, keep it real.

Hey DGAM fam, thanks for taking my question.

I love the sport, and watch all the professional tournament coverage I can.

I’m wondering how many full time disc golfers you guys think make a living wage  off the sport through their contracts, prize money, and signature series discs.

Re: Rules 802.01 & 809.03) 

Good Morning, recently I was told that I may or could be called for placing my mini and then picking up my disc and setting it in front or in front and slightly touching my mini. I think this should be ok because I am not making a ‘competitive attempt to change the lie’ and this action is ‘to set aside an unused disc’. Thanks and keep on keeping on!

This is for Robert: I am thinking about starting a college disc golf team at my college. I know you went to Abilene Christian and was wondering if you played on their team? I am a student at Oklahoma Christian University and am wondering if it is worth the hassle of getting through to the administration. It helps we have an on campus course. Also, if you are ever down in the Edmond/Oklahoma City area, we have a Torchy’s about 3 miles away from campus if you want to come play.

What makes special edition runs of discs special? Is it a different blend of plastic? Different outcome of the mold like puddle top vs domey? Interesting mix of color? 

I currently have a SE Raider that feels like Fuzion and a SE Slammer that feels like either classic blend or classic and I’m just curious about what may have earned them the “SE” stamp.

As it is in the rules we are suppose to watch all other players on the card throw during competition, could a courtesy violation be called on a player consistently not paying attention and not being able to help locate lost discs or a rules violation?
