    Thinking about all of the incredible designs that can be put onto a disc – this ESP Buzzz has me wondering ‘How real is too real?’ I can image that this disc would definately lead to some interesting reactions if you stumbled upon this in the woods. That being said, some built in security!

    Not a huge fan of those new graphic discs. They are not PDGA legal because they are not a dye/foil. It would be a shame to spend time learning and breaking in a disc only to have to remove it from my bag during a tournament. They sure look cool though.

      I did not know that they were not PDGA approved, and I am with you regarding the designs…cool to look at, nothing I will have in my bag.

        The lamination (or however the image is put in the disc) counts as an illegal disc modification. Kaposia has TONS of discs designed by FestiDaze and that is a common reason why they’re not really moving. Dyes are ok, but stickers or paint are not.

          Ah, I see. That is something that new disc golf brands and companies will need to pay attention to. It seems like more and more players are focusing on competition…better have approved discs!

      These are from DiscStore.com. I have a custom one that’s pizza and my wife has a cinnamon roll one. I never thought about or realized that these wouldn’t be legal. Good to know. Might just have to pick up another regular one in the same plastic to use.
