Excellent Frisbee!

I wanted to play in the park near my place. It took a few hours to learn, but we love it. This frisbee is perfect, it flies really well, and is beautiful also. It is fairly durable also.

I bought the 175g Ultimate Disc for my son, didn't realise how good the frisbee was until it arrived. I ordered it a week before Christmas and received it with plenty of time.
