I teach elementary physical education. After reading the reviews for this disk on Amazon I went for broke and bought 48 of them. They were a sensation like nothing else. Given the cost they are probably the single best piece of play/training equipment I have ever gotten.
They are light, yet throw as a much heavier disk. Though nothing really throws like a coaster because they have a fantastic way of straightening themselves out in the air sort of correcting a thrower's errors. Also they are extra easy(and fun) to catch. This means that everything about frisbee is really fun and exciting for a kid with these because they can throw well with little practice and dont hurt.
They do get stuck in trees and could develop lazy catching habits - so I overemphasize the need to use a pancake catch so you can play ultimate.
Since the day I got these I have had full recess Ultimate game with 4th -6th graders. I've never been able to keep the recess Ultimate games going like that.
So popular, and I got tired of trying to explain how to buy them online to kids I started selling at $6 a piece, thinking I would just get a few kids to stop asking about it. But was an immediate sensation and even though it only spread by word of mouth and soon kids were tracking me down all over campus to buy a disk. Super popular with kids.
At home we accidentally drove over one and it was fine - these things are fantastic!
