similarly, anyone know how to get a "smile" out? like, when your disc hits a tree hard and it bends the rim down.....

If you have an asphalt driveway, which i know 90% of the people around here do, find a flat spot and set it there on a hot day. This method dosent work perfectly though, because the flightplate can flatten out if its thin.

Rooster,

There is a guy in my league that can fix rims of discs with a lighter... I seen him even make cuts and abrasions disappear.

I tried it once... once.

I would never use a lighter for a bend in the rim, I generally bend the rim up and down all the way around until its even again. this acts like breaking the disc in alittle more, which usually is a plus (the only time Im careless enough to taco a disc like that is when I am trying to break it in anyways.

Good to hear. :)
9x Gazelles I enjoy throwing, as with all 9x plastic you need to boil water if you nail a tree dead on (or the basket :? )

i've warp my rocs a lot. after attempting to bend back into orignal shape, i like to let them sit in room temp water for a day, then place them plate-side down with the very center resting on a beer bottle, the leave out in the sun for an afternoon

Isn't warping just part of the natural process of a Roc going from new/overstable to beat/understable? I thought this was natural and somewhat desirable...or is it bad if the warping occurs too quickly...i.e. two really hard tree-hits in a row?
