That's pretty badass, but I would feel bad tossing it into a tree. I might still buy this, but would totally be using it if I do.

Awfully pricey to throw. This will be a wall hanger if I can get my hands on one.
I'd imagine its ESP plastic (fairly tolerant to damage), but it could be Pro D (which would beat up pretty quick).

I'd recommend you buy a production Ti (@ $20) or ESP (@ $18) or Z Buzzz (@ $15) if you want one to throw.
I carry both the Z and Ti Buzzzes because they both fly a bit different.

Really cool. Has this been done before? I could use a new 175g disc, and having some awesome print image on it couldn't hurt.

But the irony if you took down a tree limb or hit a bird or something would be worth its weight in gold

Not by a well known artist (outside of artists that work primarily in disc golf discs like Skeet Scienski). Supercolor (discraft) or Inncolor (Innova) discs have been around for a long time. It was only a matter of time before a big name artist got into the mix.

I imagine you meant "Stout" and if so, that's bad ass.
I will definitely want one of those!

Yes there is a game called disk golf or disc golf. I played it one time in Tenn. on a family reunion and have not had the pleasure of playing it since then. That was like 20 years ago though, wow this sucks that it's been that long and i am not that old.

I am sure d0ughman knows a heck of a lot more then i will ever know. He seems like the info guy on this one and knows his stuff. I hope you get one of these d0ughman because you deserve one.

Been playing for a long time and have quite a collection. I have a room in my home that's walls are devoted to discs instead of art. :D

If anyone has questions -- I'm always up for talking disc golf (NOT "DISK" golf and DEFINITELY NOT "FRISBEE" golf, as the word "FRISBEE" is owned by Wham-O)

Yes I meant stout, there was a "presale" a couple weeks ago, not sure if he will have any himself to sell.
