The use of party popper charges is genius!
Shame they count as explosive(?). And does glitter really count as an Unteathered projectile?
I look forwards to losing to it at a bbb event!

Most likely yes, Just haven't fully decided on my team yet. The spinners all still need repairs/new discs so maybe ICBINS, Mr Flipling, Ghost Writer and Wedge Wedge Wedge.

My spinners actually tend to the lighter side it seems, Test is only a 16g blade but I run very aggressive tooth profiles on the spinners. Downside of this is that you generally use a disc every event or two.

Oh, interesting, I thought they would be really heavy. Do you water jet them then, or a heated cuting method?

Waterjet cutting for them all so far, though I am in the process of finishing building a router that can let me route them myself.

One thing to note is that it's pretty important to get genuine Grade 5 ti if you're going down this route. Grade 2 is just too soft.
