Postby BLURR » Wed Aug 22, 2007 11:22 am

I stopped by the local PIAS today to check out their stock and what should appear on their shelves, but a 175g Champion Whippet-X...price...$9.99. So...scored me a brand new champ whippet-x...

So...anybody else have some great finds PIAS?

I wish we still had a PIAS around here ...the one we did have went out of business like 6 years ago...so now the closest one to me is like 45 minutes away in a town I never go to for any reason...

I've seen ce polaris and jls, a few champ rocs,and some older pro plastics that are discontinued. Most people scoop up the rare discs, but you can find nice stuff if you're willing to dig through them for an hour. I picked up some brand new used wizards for $4.99 a piece, it was the only place I could find a firm wiz.

Most of the good finds are discs with worn stamps that most people can't read. If you tilt them in the light just right you can make out what it is.

There are a lot of disc fisherman around here, and a lot of courses with bad water holes. Some of the water spots are 10'+ deep so you have to dive down to get them, and not many people want to do that in creek water. Most of the guys around here don't bother selling them on ebay, they just sell them to PIAS so we all get a piece of the pie. It's a nice little cycle.


I'll take a picture of the DG section at my pias tomorrow just so you can see what you're missing.

The first time I went into that one my jaw dropped. I have never seen so many discs in one place. That place is amazing and the lady who works there is very nice.

PIAS

Postby twmccoy » Wed Aug 22, 2007 9:53 pm

The PIAS around here sells all new discs. Every once in a while I browse them just to see what they have. Occasionally I see some old discontinued stuff. Never seen anything that was truly a gem though.

I almost forgot abut this one...

I walked into ours back when I first started playing. I picked up a brand new max weight Phoenix and Hammer. I had spent some time on Innova's site so I new these were old discs. Snagged em for $4.99 each. Ended up trading both of them for a CE Teebird and a CE Firebird about a year later.

the owner of my local is a disc head, so he snags up all the good stuff cheap and puts it in his stash. he shows me the stuff he gets. a couple weeks ago he got a brand new, max weight 9x KC roc for $10. He has about 300 CE discs in the closet.
