Daredevil Discs is making minis!

What do you look for in a mini?

What features attract you to a particular style?

What's your favourite mini? Why?

Thanks for your help.

A solid weight is nice so that it stays put and doesn't flop when I set it on a leaf or branch. A bright colour, so when I set it down on a leaf and it flops under them I can find it.

I use some orange Innova thingy I was given a long time ago.

I like heavy, small’ish, bright, ‘aesthetically pleasing’…and free Smile

I would use one with that nice ‘Tribal? stamp’ Daredevil has for Ulti’ discs.

And speaking of that, Discraft has had good success with their mini ultrastar.

That would be a great first step for a DDD mini, a mini version of their ulty disc. Even make em in their frosty plastic for winter minis...oh wait.

I look for a good round with a mini. If I have good rounds with it, i keep it, if i have crappy rounds with it i get rid of it.
Tie dye is always nice

Make them unique, different then others in shape or width etc. The PDGA rules are relatively loose on the specs of what a mini is compared to PDGA approved discs are. If its "a small disc" its ok...
Mini Marker Disc (or Mini)
A small disc, not used in play, which may be used to mark the location of the lie.

Get creative, make them different then every other stupid mini out there.

The Mini Disc Golf Federation has a 4.5 inch max. Should Daredevil care about this or work more on a mini that has better features for a marker?

Discraft just came out with Mini Buzz; it's 6 inches (will it fit in my mini pocket on my bag?)

Should the size of many mini pockets matter?

I think the pdga has a rule on this.....
If I remember correctly this topic was of fierce debate for all the lawyers on the pdga rules forums for quite a while @ pdga.com .

Get some foamy jar jar mini's. To pay for the right to the use of Jar Jar these days must cost next to nothing.

Heavy for a throwing mini. Flexible for a marking mini in your pocket.

Maybe. Not too gummy, it needs to slide easily over the fabric inside the pocket.

Personally, I would love to get my hands on one in flex or performance plastic. White or clear in colour . Only because those plastics get along well with dyes. . And I sure like unique dyed discs, regardless of their size.
