i dont think the people at my PIAS know the difference between dx and star besides the price, let alone what CE is.

One of the PIAS's in my area is like that, I think a couple of the guys have played dg but don't really know that much about it.

The one I scored this from always has these guys there that are really in to the sport and you can ask them about discs coming in and stuff like that, I prefer to go there. They care enough to sort the discs on the shelf so it's easy to find what you're looking for.

Not that either of these are amazing but I got a esp zone and a crystal avenger ss for 5 bucks each the other day. I have been wanting to try an esp zone for awhile now so it worked out well and now I can say I own a crystal ass now so that is fun to.

Snagged a glow CFR Aviar today for $6, I can't find a scuff on it. I'm not an Avair thrower but just looking to build a glow set....now to find the elusive glow buzzz on the cheap.

I saw a 169 Pro Rhyno brand new in PIAS today. Not that it's a superb find it's just that I never expected to see a brand new OOP disc in there. I also saw two 150 Pro Pigs... I didn't even know they existed.

Places around here can't give away the 150 pro pigs. I think chuck has like 6 in his payout bins that have just been sitting there forever.

all at PIAS for about 8/10 @ $8.99

11x KC Pro Gazelle - dark red ce stuff
CE QJLS - blood red color, my favorite color CEQJ
Tulsa Orc - red

8.99 is a bit expensive for what I usually buy used stuff at, but I figured I could resell the Gazelle and Orc and make at least double on those 2 discs
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius

a buddy of mine texted me the other day saying he's working part time again at my local PIAS. he then proceeded to tell me that some kid brought in 2 11x teebirds and a ce eagle and that he snatched them up after they took them in for $15. haha makes me sick to my stomach because he's the only one there who knows good plastic and is going to snatch up all the good stuff before it ever sees the light of day.
