      A cheap frisbee that will be sufficient for playing a relaxed and neutral game

      I actually bought this Frisbee for a bit of fun in my local park. And since it was my first Frisbee since a very long time I did not now what to expect from this frisbee.

      I am not a serious Frisbee player so I did not mind that much when it came to exact measurements but this dinner plate sized Frisbee seemed to be big enough and well weighted. However, the quality of the plastic is quite cheap feeling even for leisure purposes as it feels tacky and weak. But I will do the job for relaxed playing in the local park.

      The frisbee behaves okay as it does respond appropriately when throwing however when it gets even just a bit windy the Frisbee acts weird when comparing to more expensive Frisbee that some of my other friends have own. I think this is due to the poor quality plastic and some minor design faults.

      The colour is okay I guess but be warned beige is not the most exciting colour in the world however the design pattern on top of the Frisbee does make up for the boring colour scheme as it looks cool and detailed.

      Overall, I would only recommend this Frisbee is you are only playing for a bit of fun in the park as it really is not for the more tactical and experienced players as the control you get over it is really quite disappointing.

      not a great disk overall! you definately get what you pay for when it comes to disks

      I've been playing ultimate frisbee for quite a while now and i've gone through quite a few disks that i use t practise, one of these being the disk features. Every frisee is a little bit different and some are often not really appropriate for games themseves. Some can be a lot heavier than others or can be different sizes to the ones used professionlly. I bought this disk off the internet after i lost my previous one and i didn't want to spend too much on new one so i opted for a cheaper disk than normal by purchasing this product. When it first came i was relatively happy with my purchase but as i began to use it i found that it just wasn't to my liking. After playing for quite a while you get a feel for the disks you use and this just wasn't of a very high standard and didn't meet my expectations. Although the size and weight were acceptable it felt quite cheap and poorly made in comparison to previous disk i have had. The colour and look is another downside as it does not look very attractive. The flight of the disk is average at best and since then i have purchased a much better disk to use more regularly, keeping this disk only to use for practises now and again. From now on i won't fall for the temptation to purchase a cheaper disk because as i have found the quality of the disk really does matter.

      fun sport

      Wow! This took me back to the days of yore when myself and my dad would go up to the park and spend hours...no correction, minutes, playing Frisbee. It was one of those games that you tried to play in the garden, then when it went over the fence into the neighbour's garden after the third throw you soon realised you needed a bigger space. Cue bigger space and lots of running around. This is a model we got a while ago, I believe it was a Christmas gift for the whole family. Poorly judged, my mum prefers toffees and my dad favours golf. But the gesture was there anyway.

      This is no ordinary Frisbee, it has been approved by the Ultimate Frisbee Players Association and there I was wondering what association I should join to better my social life! So it appears people do play this seriously, I always thought it was just a bit of fun with mates chucking it on a beach back and forth. This disc is sturdy, plastic and also durable. It has withstood a few games now and it is quite hard to damage it, unless you stamp on it. The disc is lighweightt and easy to carry around and you can also buy them with different colours. I like the brighter colours, because then you can find them easily when they end up in hedges!

      Does it do much of a better job than a normal Frisbee? I don't know, because I am so poor at throwing it, my shots usually end up going sideways anyway! If you get the flick of the wrist right then you can get some lovely curvy movement into it and it can be good fun. We have thrown some shots that have gone across the whole park, well sort of! My quibble is the price, which would be ten pounds. That seems a lot for a disc, especially when a standard one would cost about two pounds. Fun in the summer, but hardly a practical winter gift.

      Perfect For Playing Frisbeee With My Mates! Hope The Summer Lasts!

      I brought this frisbee when me and my mate went to Stourport a couple of months ago, it was from one of them sort of shops that sells all the touristy stuff like massive blow up footballs and rock, things like that.

      It's made from pretty hard plastic and feels very good quality compared to the cheapo frisbees you can buy in the pound shop, this was about £4.00 and that's more than I would usually spend on a frisbee but as soon as we used it for the first time we could see that it wasn't cheap and flew through the air proper good.

      This is the 175g, I wouldn't have known this because it's not very obvious on the front of the frisbee. I did notice that there was a couple of different sizes with the same design but this one was the biggest, it tells you the weight in tiny little numbers on the back of the frisbee. That's good because it doesn't spoil the design but it does make it a bit difficult if you're looking for a specific weight frisbee.

      This is made of out very shiny plastic, it's got a lovely sheen to it and feels proper nice to hold. You would have to be careful if you was using this frisbee to play with kids because it flies dead quick and once it starts losing height it'll drop very quickly, I don't think small kids would be able to move out of the way fast enough and they'd probably get hurt.

      I think this is one of the nicest frisbees I've ever used, it's made by Wham Q..... I've never heard of that brand before but there was quite a few different ones in the shop all with slightly different designs but obviously still from the same beand because of the sun logo on the top of the frisbee.

      This one has got a lovely rounded edge to it, that makes it dead comfortable to throw and means you can get a good grip to send it in the direction you want it to. I have used frisbees before that are flatter and they do fly a bit smoother because they are more stream lined but this one is fine for just dossing in the park..... it's not like I'm entering the world frisbee championships or anything like that!

      Recommended..... worth the price even though there are cheaper frisbees available!!!

        A good frisbee but not for ultimate frisbee

        If you are looking for a disc to play ultimate frisbee with, I would not recommend this product. Look into getting yourself a Discraft or Daredevil disc instead. However, If your after a decent frisbee to have a chuck about in the park or on the beach with your family and friends then this is a great frisbee to buy.

        Note: The 175g is quite a large disc (about the size of a dinner plate), is made of hard plastic and can travel quite fast at times so are not ideal for small children. I suggest a 140g disc or better yet Aerobie (another frisbee manufacturer) have a super soft discs which are great for kids (not the rings though- they can be quite dangerous too).

        Personally (as an ultimate player) I do a lot of throwing and catching of frisbees and would recommend a Discraft disc. I find that Whamo's have a deeper rim - this does allow the disc to hang in the air longer but can be grating on your fingers, but it's probably because I'm so used to my Discrafts.

        However, this disc is durable, easy to throw and catch with and they fly just as well as any decent 175g disc. You may think this is a tad expensive for a frisbee (£8-10), but I can guarantee they are a lot lot better than the cheap ones you get at some stores. Cheap frisbees don't fly straight and are usually very hard, which make catching them not that fun.
