Aw, shucks you guys...you're making me blush! :oops: :P

I could upload the Excel scoresheet I made for Pozzy's Putting Game if anyone's interested, but I realize after looking at the Pozzy thread here that I used a different version of the rules which has a different point schema. Hmm.

It should work. Just make sure that the disc cools on a flat surface and that there is no suction to make the flight plate sink in. All the discs I have flattened have remained that way. If you mess up, it's plastic not marble, you can fix it.

Doesn't altering a disc in this manner (boiling, heatlamps, ect.) make it illegal for tournament use?

I'm not a plastics expert, but putting a disc in the freezer after it has cooled seems like overkill.

I just figured i'd do it for extra insurance. Since I done the Champ Spider,I done it to a Champ Wraith. I actually had to do it twice, cause I think I just messed up the first time. But, both times I stuck it in the Freezer just to make sure. They both kept their form after the process. But, the Wraith didn't quite go as flat as I was expecting.

But, none the less went from the meat hook it was to something that seems more like newer to slightly used Pro Wraith. With the slightest turn at times, but will always flip flat now. And, when it was new wouldn't at all. So I say it was a success. And, wouldn't really want it much flippier, the rest I can take out with normal use, hoping it holds this stability for a long time.
