- Why are modern cheap Frisbees so rubbish?
My family have banned me from using “any flying toy” or “throwing any non-flying toy”.Posted 3 years ago
There were a series of incidents where someone managed to get an Aerobie, football, tennis ball, baseball bat and a cricket bat stuck in a tree one Saturday afternoon. Some children cried.
The following Saturday we went back to the same park with a new Aerobie frisbee and on someone’s first throw the new frisbee got stuck on the cafe roof. Some children cried again.
The aerobie rings are ace, fact. Fly for miles and tough as old boots. Had one for a few years before it succumb to dogs playing tug of war with it.
Worth every penny and will fly for miles which the dog loves. Can also be popped over the head and carried like that with no bother.Posted 3 years agoTiRedMember

Trained our dog to retrieve an aerobie. The smaller size is better in my opinion. But they aren’t tough in a dog’s mouth – dogs need to be trained not to chew them! Fantastic devices. Conventional frisbees need a little more skill and have a far shorter range. Just not the same.Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
Got a bunch of Frisbees of varying sizes, haven’t thrown one for years. Used to be able to do backhand throws, and thumb flicks, but I haven’t really got the knack now.Posted 3 years ago
Or the knees, for that matter; developing osteoarthritis in my left knee means a certain reluctance to go running after flying discs.
Used to be a lot of fun playing catch with a girlfriend in the dark using a luminous Frisbee; almost impossible to gauge distance properly, however her getting hit on the nose after a fumbled catch earned me a hard punch on the arm!
Oh, and I’m not sure that cheap Frisbee knock-offs were ever that good, they were always a bit unbalanced and would wobble after a few feet.AlexSimonSubscriber
I have always and will always buy these. YMMV.
Whamo-o Frisbee Fastback (sometimes called Frisbee Dog).
I just find them a doddle to throw and they are amazingly consistent.
They have a shallower edge than most which makes them super-easy to fling.
Whenever I buy a different one, I always come back to these.
My current fave is a recycled one called the 110g reflyer:
They can appear hard to find in the UK because they are often called different things, but worth hunting down.Posted 3 years ago
