As with everything, there are pros and cons. It is easier to keep the disc once you have hooked it with a bar. When you pull it in, you are less likely to have it bounce out. disadvantage of the bar is that you may have a hard time catching the disc, especially when the ground around the ponds There is an easier way to skip over the disk with it.
There are 25 or 30 feet of it. Although the lead they use is not bad, depending on how much you catch on it, it tends to tear quite quickly. In the future, I will replace it with a longer, more durable rope or string. As far as quality goes, the claw is good. Due to the hooks, it is able to pull up quite a bit of algae, but it comes off easily.
Although I am unaware of the exact dimensions, it appears to measure about 2 inches by 10 inches based on the size of my bag. All together, the walls should not be thicker than an inch. I can carry my bag anywhere I want
The product isn't worth the money. You can get a telescoping stick for it, but it's junk.

The disc retrieval device helps me retrieve three of my discs from Wildhorse in Las It turned out I didn't get any of my discs back, but I managed to pull out 23 more! My $10 golf fee didn't even cover the cost of golf! Then I was laughing as I dragged one disc after another out of the water. My plan is to replace the line with 50 feet of paracord. It's going to take a little bit of Make sure to pull from a low position where you can. Crouch down and pull to properly rake the bottom of the trail. Sand-bottomed boats tend to be most effective. Edit
If you are retrieving disks that have been submerged in water, you will need to be aware that they will smell horrible. The boxes were placed in a cardboard box on my patio in the desert heat for about a month until no insects were seen. I really don't know when the smell went completely away, but it took about three months.
The disc grabber did hang up on the bottom some times, but moving the rope around at different angles released it. In one or two fishing trips, the disc retriever is worth its weight in gold.
In an attempt to retrieve a couple discs, I threw them into the creek using the disc, but that didn't work out as well as I had hoped. I kept dropping the disc as I picked it up with the claw. In addition to a couple of times and a stick, I had to work hard to return the discs. The lift won't work well for lifting objects when you are at the same level as it, but it would probably work well if you were sitting down. As is apparent from the attached string, it is very short. It will be necessary for you to bring extra string or rope to attach one if you purchase one. This week's update My friend and I have been using this for some time and it is actually right on point. My discs have been saved, along with friends' discs, and mysterious discs have been discovered Unless you're lucky, it may take a few attempts, but the effort is well worth it. My experience lifting out of water has not been disappointing yet, although it is still not super hot.
In order to achieve telescoping, he wanted a retriever with a nylon rope attached to it. This retriever has a metal body with a nylon rope attached. However, he hasn't actually used it yet and says that it was a good price and that he is keeping it as a collection. In the article, the apparatus is described as being useful for retrieving a disc on top of water, but it wouldn't work if it sank and had to be recovered. This was my own fault for not paying attention to what I read. I like it very much and it came very I am certain to keep it.
If you play on courses with a lot of water, these are essential. My disc catchers have saved me from a lot of frustration over the years, and they are well worth the money. These discs have a diameter of 10 inches It only costs $20, so you could make back your money in a few days. It is an obvious choice for me. As well, this particular brand/style is a great alternative to the others, since it has the gap at the bar that keeps it from getting tangled in weeds or sticks. In the old-school version with the full bar across, it is easier to get tangled up. It's nice to see innovation in that field.
The disc was too far away for a long stick to reach it with. Although it took a few throws of this retriever for me to be able to get my disc back, I did it. You need to get used to throwing the retriever before you can learn how to use it, but if you save one disc, it'll be worth it. Nevertheless, I have a 300-yard roll of strong string in my bag just in case the rope that comes with it isn't long enough to reach where the disc is, which I could imagine being an issue depending on how far the disc is out.
On the other hand, I don't really recommend it since it's a bit on the heavy side. The good news is, if you can recover a couple of good discs from the water, you have made your investment back. said, let me just say this. This is a sign of complete indifference on the part of the manufacturer with regards to attaching the rope to the device. I knew people had problems losing these devices, and now I understand When they are in command, they use a knot that is technically half a knot, and if they manage not to lose their retriever on the first throw, then it is tied the knot using a fishing uni knot and my lines are now secure. Prior to getting the item, I had planned to get a thin anchor rope to replace the provided rope, but after seeing what they provided, I decided to wait and see how it works before changing. As long as you're not trying to tow in a log, the tow bar appears sturdy enough. In the course of using the rope, let's see if it frays. I may replace it if necessary, but I was not discouraged by it. Although, the knots they used to tie these on are not to be tolerated. It would have been a smart move to take a photo before I rearranged He tied it up.
I took it back to my house to rescue three discs on my first round of carrying it, and now it has paid for itself five times over. I do not even notice that it is in my bag, it is that light and user friendly. There is no tangling with the string as it is very long. It works better than the other designs I have used in the past. Previous designs slid overtop discs whereas this one cuts down underneath while not hanging up as much on debris.
