I have picked up about a dozen CE discs from the PIAS, a few valks, a few leopards, a few eagles, and two firebirds. I bought 3 bar stamp super rocs, 4 SE TLs, 5 SE Leopards and two 10x rocs and one 8x roc. Oh and some random amount of San marino rocs.

At my local PIAS, you have to show up at the right day because one of the employees is a disc head and he will snag all the good stuff.

I always wondered why the norman store never really had any rare discs...

Time to resurrect an old thread.

Went into the PIAS again. Got the hook up.

Proto Wizard 9.5 out of 10 (The original proto wizards...brick red)
G9i Wizard 9.5 out of 10
G6i Demon 9.5 out of 10
G6i Demon 7.5 out of 10
G1i Sabre 9.5 out of 10 (Straight from Kid's bag)
Original Nike Spirit 9.5 out of 10

I might go back and clean them out. A local player deposited a crap load of plastic from his collection. Mainly Gateway and Millenium. And for those of you who have never thrown the G6i, it is like a Demon-L. Money straight.

You live in WDM, right? Is that from the PIAS on Swanson?

SOOO many good finds at PIAS! At the one here in Texarkana I found a few x-out Champ Whippets for $7 each and a few Pro Orcs (regular price...but they're hard to find new).

The one back in Dallas / Carrollton...oh man I spent so much money there! I went in there one day, right after the current owners took over (and before they knew much about disc golf) and there was a stack of 9-10 CE discs in the used bin, all for $8.99 a pop. I picked up a TB, 2 Valks, 2 Firebirds (whatever the monster-looking mold was), and a Leopard, all in good shape...I still throw the TB. I also got an old Sanny Roc for $5, a brand new BB Grid Aviar for $7, new 11x Candy Gazelle for $9, and a bunch of old DX stuff one particular day (ontario stingrays, whippets, panthers, rams...all for about $5 each). Also got a first run CE Aviar (x-out) for $7...oh, and a new 3x JK Aviar for the same price.

Not at PIAS, but I just got an almost new CE QMS for $6.

I've got a ton of Sanny rocs and nike plastic from my local PIAS. It helps to know the owner.

The cold winter months kinda depletes the used selection. During the summer new discs are coming in every day and you get a good chance of finding something nice.

The first time I went into that one my jaw dropped. I have never seen so many discs in one place. That place is amazing and the lady who works there is very nice.



You should come to "Rick's Darts And Games" in Houston sometime. He has almost 500 disc on display.

I started playing just over a month ago. PIAS is close to where I work so I've been going there about once a week checking on the used discs. I've been surprised that there has been a few new discs each week even though it's winter.

This week I find a brand new Daredevil Beaver putter for $3.99. Sometimes little finds like that can just make your week.

I am jealous of you guys that can find the used gems. The 2 PIAS here in wichita only deal with new DX Discs.

He occasionally sells them on ebay. He stopped playing when his son was born about 2 or so years ago. People bring them in quite frequently anf he gives them $5 for them.
