Bought a sweet J-Bird stamp glow buzzz off an older dude at Woods, he had a ton of discs for sale in the parking lot, and a lot with J-Bird dyes and stamps. Wasn't till later that I learned that he might actually live in the area, kind of curious if we met him.
As a proud and long time member of Team J-Bird I am happy to answer this question.
First the guy who you bought the J-Bird disc from was DJ (Darrell Jones), a J-Bird friend, associate and disc peddler.
J-Bird Acres is roughly a half hour north of Lansing, Michigan and site of a superb private course and the J-Bird Disc Dying production site. J-Bird is the principal disc dyer for both Innova and Discraft, so if you have ever seen a dyed disc the odds are it came from J-Bird. (The rare, limited edition or personalized dyes are not usually J-Birds. So if your dyed disc has the logo of a rock band or disc golf club then it probably was not done by J-Bird).
At one time J-Bird was a fine Pro player and frequent Tournament Director. He doesn't play much anymore but is still a great course designer and world class putter. J-Bird is also a cranky old man and not to be trusted with underage females or small mammals .
