They're all "in the know" there.

It makes me feel sketched out to get questioned about the discs I buy... every single time.

Here in Raleigh they don't ask you what's special about it b/c they already know.

same in Austin. I make sure to go when a certain person isn't working. And then I have to beat Disc Junkie, Booter and his crew to the punch.

I still don't know why they come dig through the Disc Nation bins. Its only good for stock stuff :D

And have a deal worked out with a certain pro (who will remain nameless) for anything valuable :)

What's the dude's name? Is it Jason? I think he is the reason that for the most part there are nothing but crappy dx discs or champ beats or Vikings. Last year I routinely picked up nice stuff including a 1st Run SPD, CE firebird, and stock stamp echo star and first run star destroyers. Now its just a crapshoot.

i've got a buddy working at our local pias now, but we throw a lot of the same discs though. the nearest course is maybe 20 minutes away from the store, so they don't usually have a lot of used stuff to choose from, let alone many gems.

now that they have a disc golfer in their staff he's gotten on the ball and moved a lot of junk discs that have sat there for years. they're carrying lat, westside, mvp, and legacy now instead of just innova, discraft, discmania, and gateway.

I picked up a beat 11x KC Roc for $5 at PIAS in Brandon the other day. Didn't get asked about it. :D

Of course, that's by far the best used disc I've ever found there; that PIAS stinks.

Jeez, there's a ton o' crap discs in the PIAS pile here. But somehow the growing ranks of "in the know" missed:
>Stiff, white, 168 1.1 SOLF (marked SOF), 9.5/10, no ink
>Taffy, white, 172 10X Eagle-X, 7/10 (in a very sweet way), no ink
With ten buck gift card from recent tourney players pack they cost me 70 cents.

Yeah I havn't had much luck there lately either. Are you saying Jason is the reason nobody with good discs is trading there?

Alpine has a smaller selection of used discs, but it seems to be a much better selection.

I personally think Jason knows what is valuable and sells it separately. There is also the 777Salvage guy who knows discs very well and comes in every day almost.

I think they're in cohoots.

Really? I mean that might make sense, because the selection of good discs really has been slim (amidst the 500 beat-to-snot DX discs). I'll see if I can talk to Jason soon to see whats up. I want in on this! That 777 guy charges people almost retail for returning discs he finds. A lot of guys on the CDGC forum ripped into him for that.

However, a few months ago I found a new 11x Kc Eagle-x in the bin...maybe that was the end of it though.

I don't know if they're in cohoots, but Jason has always quizzed me about first run stamps or how to identify certain discs. I've always tried to be mum on stuff like that, even when I lived in Chapel Hill and shopped at the Durham PIAS. But he obviously has done his homework. The only thing that he isn't good at (IMO) is identifying discs with tourney stamps that are worth something. For instance a couple of months ago I found and purchased 2 lightly used but GORGEOUS old school champ glow teebirds. He didn't know what they were, but I sure as hell did.
