I have noticed that a Wham-O seems to have a thicker edge than an Ultrastar, once I made the switch to Ultrastar my flicks got a lot more consistent, and my fingers didn't hurt as much afterward.

So Ultrastar it up.

www.discraft.com

Good luck with that. Exchange rate is a killer right now.

Better off buying one from your local club.

Daredevil's are pretty standard for a lot of people to learn with in Ottawa, Canada's (and the world's)largest league.  I'd say it's pretty close to 50/50 usage between daredevil's and discraft in league games.

I can't even tell the difference between the two anymore.  Occaissionally you'll see an old daredevil that's a little softer.

Anyone else found that discs tend to go stiff after a while then go soft?

Some of our old discs are really stiff and great to throw because they don't flex too much. (Bad part is the rim is normally messed up and the disc is worn changing the aerodynamics)

But then some of the older discs have gone really soft and flex a great deal when you hang onto them.

Hi, I'm new to ultimate and am looking to purchase a disc for recreational play. However would like a disc that meets the standards of competitive play - looking around the forums, Discraft's Ultra Star seems to pop up a lot!

Saw http://www.amazon.co.uk/Frisbee-50th-Anniversary-Gift-Pack/dp/B00180GWB2/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=toys&qid=1240050197&sr=8-7 on Amazon - is it worth my while?

I think sergio is right there... They do look like wham-o's. Considering that they are in the "toy" section and they are called "frisbees", i wouldn't be surprised if they were the flimsy ones sold at $2 stores...

Better off going to your local club and seeing if they have any available to buy. As to what you should buy, thats up to your preference. Personally I can't handle a wham-o disc, but there are tons who can't throw with anything else. Go find what you like. Besides, discs are relatively cheap. A soccer ball costs around $25 here... I can get a disc for $15 Grin

i'm 100% sure those discs are wham-o's Smiley

2 days ago i was playing with a flash light disc ... it's flying really fantastic, and it's made of
soft plastic it's just stick to your hand ... catching a blade isn't a problem Smiley
