Flip it in the lathe and turn one into a mini driver... I need one for RIPT.

Well it started as pink and black but kinda turned pink/purple when all was done. (see the new post I made with 2 new minis in it)

I did have a chance to weigh the orange one. The mini I used for comparison weighed 35 grams, the mini I made was around 85-90 grams.

So? Televisions weren't meant for throwing either, but that never stopped Keith Moon. Give the thing a toss already!

I don't want to risk breaking it. Next time I am at the course I will throw it "softly" as see what happens.

If it won't survive a material change perhaps?
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I could look into a material change but I doubt it. When I made this is was for the intention of using it as a marking mini only and really to have something that nobody else has.

I am down for making some for people but I really don't want to have to get into the technical part of disc making trying to make sure each custom disc is supper durable at the same time creating a very consistent flite out of each disc. That would really just be to time consuming.

They would make great trophies for tournaments and great prizes as well.
