cheapest disc golf website

Postby zatabddy » Wed Jul 17, 2013 1:00 am

What is the cheapest disc golf website out there? Overall, disc golf is a cheap sport since most courses are free, but the actual discs are not so cheap! Usually $13-17 bucks at my local sports stores. Besides eBay, can anyone recommend the cheapest online store they know of?

Two places I have watched are Marshall Street and disgolfcenter.com

What I wanted was a place with better colors and weights then my brick and mortar shop. Marshall street so far has had less expensive disc but $6 shipping. Discgolfomline is a little more expensive (like a dolor more) but I do not know about shipping. Maybe slightly less selection for the base disc.

Amazon was about the same but mush less selection. Ya just gotta check all 4 places searching for a deal.

I like CommunityDiscs. Great guy to deal with, and $1 for shipping on any order. Get three or more discs and he ships Priority.

I know cost reduction is an obvious objective when shopping online but I would simply pass this thought on: Disc golf is a small, very local based sport in communities commonly tied together by clubs. When purchasing discs, please try to support your local shops to help them stay in business as they are part of the sports infrastructure. Also, something they have in common with some of the bigger online retailers, look for shops that do a good job supporting the sport. Some go out of their way to sponsor tournies, players, etc... Some just stick to moving discs. Maybe its just me but I'd rather eat an extra $.50 to a $1 to support the movement.

I would too. Love to support local businesses - do it for my running equipment, etc. even if it's at a higher cost.

Disc golf is too small though for many people to have local options (as I'm sure you know). Your advice is worth repeating though, if it's an option. Stop in and get to know the people at the local shops.

^^^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^^

If consumers only want cheap cheap cheap, then pretty soon the only place we'll be able to get Chinese-made discs is at a Wal-mart.

I personally want to see and feel a disc before I buy it, unless I know exactly what I'm getting. Buying from an online retailer is a total coin toss. Also, I know for a fact that disc makers send their best product to their buddies at the pro shops...
