I am going to a course soon with some tough water shots. I am going to try to find some cheap "throw away disc" for just those shots so I don't loose any of my good disc.

Yeah the 2 PIAS by me what $19.99 for any Innova star plactic.

Ive only see one used dics and they wanted $14.99 for it because it was Z plactic. I havent had any "great" finds. The best I have is I found 2 matching APX's (weight, color, and stamp) which was exactly what I was looking for. But I was told that they are getting more plactic some time this month so I'll have to keep stoping in :)

Got a yellow Z Cyclone for $6. Looks new and unthrown. The PIAS in Sheboygan has really updated their discs and improved their selection.

Not trying to bring this thread back from the apparent death, but I found another yellow Z Cyclone at PIAS, same as the last except this other one was 2 grams lighter. $5.99 again. I looked around some more and they had a purple Z Cyclone for $11.99. Anyone know why the purple was twice as much? Is it just the rarity of the plastic?

My best 12x Star Wraith is ,marbled grey with a local stamp. It was in the used bin, brand new and mismarked for $5.99 (which is the price for DX type stuff).

The lady at the PIAS caught the mismarked, but I am a good customer, so she just smiled and rung it up...
