Todays findings

Postby chris86wm » Mon Nov 06, 2006 12:02 am

Today, after throwing my valkyrie in the muk and searching for 5 minutes, i found 3 discs.
A brand new Crush (z plastic)
A nice XL (z plasitc)
and another XL (x plastic?)

Just my luck, all 3 had names on them and two even had phone #'s. Guess I will be returning all of them, but oh well, eventually I DID find my lost Valkyrie :D

The crush only has the guys nickname on it and no phone #, so its gonna be fun tracking Mr. "DIRT" down :lol:
I just hope that someday someone out there will return the favor and return some of my many lost discs.

i wont lie, I dont bother trying to find someone by just their name (email/phone is best) usually their name is there so their disc is legally marked or just cause. I have returned discs w/ just names, but only when I know the guy already (and once when I met him after his disc sat in a box for a couple months)

disc finding

Postby twmccoy » Mon Nov 06, 2006 8:02 pm

Not bad. I found 54 discs yesterday and 19 Saturday. I got a pro wraith, ESP surge, 7 champ beasts, 2 champ orcs, a star teerex, 5 flashes, a buzz, a star valk, a star beast, 2 star sidewinders, a z avenger, 2 champ starfires and many other sweet discs. I wanted to do one last good search before the lakes freeze.

I gave all the beat DX discs I found to a bunch of kids on the course and they were throwing them around.

I think this question has been asked every time you post your findings ;-)

discs

Expo of course. The water was so clear I could see discs just sitting there on holes 2, 18, 3 and 14.

The ones from saturday were at badlands.

Then someone usually asks how much he wants for his newfound Champion Starfires? :wink:

starfires

Postby twmccoy » Mon Nov 06, 2006 11:19 pm

I think I'm gonna keep those. They are both mint and I don't have very many of them. They are the new ones, not the CFRs. A guy I know was searching with me and he also found two of them.

lol wading definately helped me get my start in the game.
even though out here we have water due to lack of trees... I would rather have a few more obstacles than water to avoid :-?

In my area we have plenty of trees to hit but no water to throw over. I'll usually find a few discs burried under the leaves in the fall though. I found a really old Cyclone in the Elite Pro plastic.

I found a 157g Pro Orc today in the leaves with no name and number. It was ground up from hitting asphalt. I threw it real easy one time and it turned over faster than anything I've ever thrown. I left it. I have never thrown a flippier driver.

pro orc

Postby twmccoy » Wed Nov 08, 2006 12:13 am

Yeah, those pro orcs are really unpredictable. I have a 158 that will just bomb if thrown right. Only problem is it's hard to throw it hard without it flipping.

I found a moderately beat DX Orc that was one of the flippest discs I've thrown. My much more beat DX Gazelle even resisted turn better than it.
