I've tried them and now use them for my glow rounds. They are super bright and the batteries are replaceable. Some people may view them as a little pricey but if you play even a few rounds of glow a year they pay for themselves. I have 2 discs outfitted with them.
The hardest thing to grasp about these is that you are destroying a disc that will no longer be useable for sanctioned PDGA play because you are putting a hole in them. For us junkies with way to much plastic anyway converting 2-3 discs for permanent glow use is not a big deal. I just used some new plastic that I was fine parting with.
Each light comes with a little tool, almost like a leather punch but its a disc punch. You hammer a hole into your frisbee on the underside nub, and then push the nub on the light through. Its not a easy as they lead on in the instructions but thats cool with me because that just means its more secure. Once the light is through all you need to do is depress the switch on the underside of the disc and you're GTG.
They have a solid mode and a strobe mode and are way brighter than anything else on the market. The adds say it does not effect the flight of the disc but I have found that it makes less stable at high speeds. I converted a champ boss and a z buzzz. The boss has maintained most of its stability but the buzzz will flip if you rip it, but at slow to high-mid speeds will maintain its intended flight. The hole in one light also adds about 10 grams for whatever that is worth.
I have one more light that I want to use but I still have not decided on the right disc, I am leaning towards a leopard probably so ive got something in between the boss and buzzz.
Overall I think that its worth it for thoes who play a fair amount of glow.
Shoot The Breeze / Re: Ledgestone Insurance supports disc golf, will disc golfers support Ledgestone?« on: December 14, 2011, 09:29:54 AM »
I actually just got home owners insurance through Nate at Ledgestone. Quote was much lower than State Farm and Country Insurance with additional coverage.
During the tournament I lost a forest green/camo green Echo Destroyer on hole 14. I know, bad color choice, but more than that it was a bad throw. It is somewhere way to the left maybe just past the railroad ties in all the tall grass, weeds and shrubs over there.
My name and number are on the disc and I would appreciate its return.

Did someone keep unclaimed bag tags? I took off and forgot to grab mine.
I think this came up last Tuesday at the Handicap League but do you guys know who is updating/moderating "www.jolietdiscgolf.com"? There were several gomes up at West Park asking about leagues and they were refered to both jtowndiscgolf.com and jolietdiscgolf.com. I think it would make sence to direct people to "www.jtowndiscgolf.com" from the other website so that people are getting up to date information about the club and disc golf in the area. Just a suggestion.
Iím not sure what schedule your looking at because according to what I have it says May 25. Either way itís on Wednesday May 25. Our league is always on Wednesday even if the dates say differently.
Not the schedule, its just the left sidebar on the J-town website. Schedule is probably good but it clearly says "5/27 5:30pm West Park" on the website. Thanks for the heads up.
