Maximize Disc Longevity and Effectiveness

If you have played disc golf long enough you know the feeling of losing your go-to disc either by damaging it beyond repair or losing it to the elements (blackberry bush patch, deep forest, river, lake). You put in so much time to learn your favorite disc's flight path and how it throws for you only to have it damaged and it never flies like you expect ever again. 

Here are a few tips to keeping your discs flying great and maintaining their performance.

Avoid Hard Surfaces: Try to avoid throwing your discs onto hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt, as this can cause scratches, dents, and other damage.

Clean Regularly: Clean your discs regularly, especially after playing in muddy or wet conditions. Use a mild soap, water, and a soft cloth or sponge to remove dirt and debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the plastic.

Storage: Store your discs in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Extreme heat can warp the plastic, affecting the disc's flight characteristics.

Rotate Discs: If you have multiple discs, consider rotating them during play. This helps distribute the wear and tear evenly among your discs.

Avoid Excessive Bending: While disc golf discs are designed to be flexible, avoid excessive bending or flexing, as this can lead to warping.

Check for Damage: Regularly inspect your discs for any signs of damage, such as cracks, warping, or sharp edges. Damaged discs may not fly as intended and can be unsafe to use.

Mark Your Discs: Mark your discs with your name and contact information. This increases the chances of getting your lost discs returned if someone finds them.

Use a Towel or Mini Marker: When placing your disc on the ground during play, use a towel or mini marker to prevent scratches.

Avoid Overloading Bag: Avoid overloading your disc golf bag with too many discs. This can lead to unnecessary pressure on the discs, potentially causing warping. In addition make room in your bag for discs you don't mind replacing if you are unsure of a course or hole you are playing for the first time.
