Broken Disc....

Postby BLURR » Thu Apr 10, 2008 6:34 pm

I had to take a moment of silence today...when my 4 year old Cam Todd Challenger blew up in the chains...

death by chains...at least it died doing what it loved.

On a similar note I lost a beautiful 2 year old predator today...im really torn up about that one.

While we're mourning discs, I cracked a 5 year old flippy roc a few weeks ago.

Tell it to the pieces of my Champ Valkyrie from the days when champ was clear and harder than now. -18C though. Star Aero I remember well from those sessions. I could bend it a little by really muscling it and was really scared it would break. It felt like I was twisting metal.

Yeah right, I cracked a E Element-X and it wasn't even that cold. It was a money disc too!

The only disc I've damaged the the point of being illegal was a farily new DX Teebird. I hit a metal electrical box up on a light tower next to a softball field and somehow ripped the flight plate on the corner of the box.

If I've cracked the flight plate all the way though the rim, do you think it's possible to repair it?

Damn. I'm so worried about cracking one of my money Rocs. It's gonna happen some day, almost all of my Rocs are the old plastic with the bar stamp.

Not a lot you can do about it when (not if) it happens. It's not like I'd quit throwing my flippiest roc because I'm worried about it.

In the meantime, I've taken all but two rocs out of my bag for casual rounds. One KC for stable/overstable shots, and my straight roc. Hoping that straight one will get flippy in the next month or so.
