The people are sheep! Lemmings! Oh, could you hang on, a bunch of us are jumping off a cliff... not sure why...
You are ALL wrong! Latitude 64 has the best plastic than both Discraft and Innova, well. Minus Innova's old CE plastic. Anyway, Lat 64 has come up with some great discs and it continues to grow, but any one who has tried their discs. Will know they are making some of the best today!
One other thing. These threads are fun to read, but come on. I carry both companies discs in my bag and I couldn't imagine not throwing both! If in fact, you are serious. You guys are missing out!
Although I throw all Discraft (by preference as I carry 7 molds, know and trust what each does) I think Latitude is on track for being great. The quality, consistency, and feel of their discs are wonderful. I would not be opposed to throwing other brand discs such as gateway, latitude, etc. But I stick with what works for me. Although I spend plenty of time with new discs experimenting. So if I find something I like it will end up in the bag regardless of manufacturer until I get a contract that says otherwise.

this argument is old news...and getting older...throw everything and have fun...and don't disrespect players for what they throw, its unbecoming...
You forgot to mention Gateway, Quest AT, Latitude 64 (and others). I personally think that Star is the best plastic out there. Z plastic was way too slick. Ever since I switched from Discraft to Innova I have no desire to go back. But I have added a few nice Quest AT discs to the mix.

What discs someone buys is personal preference. What they do with those discs can make them a champion or a fool.
right now in my bag:

Never understood the allegiance to one company. Innova is definitely more visible and accessible to the mass's at such places as tournaments and wal-mart.Dare i say "buy american"..
A man after my own heart!

I love Innova drivers and Discraft and DGA mids I carry lots of each brand. Star is better than ESP plastic as it dings to easy....
So what you are ultimately saying is that innova is more popular due to its immense line of products, its 80% of the disc market-share and monopoly of major distributors that random people from off the street would go to such as, Dicks, Sports Authority, Dunhams, MC Sports, and other major sporting goods retail companies.

Innova has Great R&D I will give them that, but they also have the money to be able to have the great R&D. However, they produce discs so fast to throw them on the shelves that the consistency between runs of the same models are not going to be as good as a smaller manufacturer that doesn't have as great of a demand simply because they can be more meticulous in what they produce.

My biggest problem is with the retooling of the most popular discs that innova makes in order to make their discs "worth more" Seriously how many different ROCs and Avairs are there now? Oh a new signature on the disc means it needs to be tweaked? really...

Either way Grab some discs and just go throw!
I throw all of the above. I do have more Innova but still like my Discraft, Millennium, and Lat 64. What I do like about Innova, and wish it was a standard with all disc companies, is there numbering system ie speed, glide, turn and fade. It sure makes it a hell of a lot easier to find a disc that will work with your throw. It also would take the guess out of experimenting on new discs letting us branch out into other companies plastic.
Personally I find the selection of Innova discs to be far too vast to decide from. Especially since DX flies different than Star which flies different than Pro which flies... etc. I don't have the money to go through all of the discs to find something I like. It is for that reason I prefer DGA discs and the sense of "don't have a disc that does the job for you, but have a throw that does the job for you." My only problem with DGA is they don't have extreme understable or overstable discs yet. My super beat Rogues flip and fly like sidewinders, but if I lose one I'm boned. I carry a Sidewinder as a just in case disc and a Star Destroyer as a hyzer skip and spike disc (and because everyone needs a Star Destroyer.) It all comes down to what you can find and how you like to play. If you want to carry 26 discs, one for every situation, be my guest. If you're like me and practice a throw for every shot and not a disc for every shot, pick up your ten discs and a Fade Crunch Box and let's throw a round.
I agree that Innova has a HUGE selection... I have studied that doggone disc guide until I sleep and dream the friggin' thing... Discraft also has a HUGE selection, though... I am too damn stubborn (or maybe scared) to try something I don't know (Latitude, etc) just for fear that I'll not like it... BUT!!!

I only have a very few DC discs in my bag (Avenger SS (which suddenly decided it doesn't want to fade), Surge SS, a Buzzzzzzzz (and god do I love that disc!), and a Magnet)... I cannot honestly see myself EVER choosing one brand and sticking with it unless the money is unbelievably good going in my pocket (WINK WINK DISCRAFT OR INNOVA OR LATITUDE MY BAG IS FOR RENT)....

I really just don't understand fanboys/girls... even Nate Doss is dating Valerie Jenkins... I mean, c'mon! WHERE'S THE LOVE!!!
Innova is the Bomb !!!! WORD !!!!
