hey now,in the retail world it's "competative Marketing"happy,smiling DG'ers.Sounds like the feud between the Hatfield/McCoy's between Discraft/Innova disc golfers.Does put a smile on one's face.
I'm waiting for the name of 'Stimulus" to be thrown on a disc.Peace
Well, my Groove flat out sucks. It's not me, it's the disc. I have used it in all conditions, angles, winds, cannot get it to fly. It loves to hit the ground quick though. Doesn't fly that fast or far, I can throw a TeeBird as far as my Groove. It is a wormburner. Don't need it or a Discraft version. Junk.
The push for new and improved discs will always create gray areas. There are only so many ways a disc can be molded to be PDGA legal. The next step in disc evolution? No flight plate you say? Sweet!!! Not going to happen!!!
I think the hate on single brand am players is hypocritical. I hear people tells others all the time that throwing crappy shots is okay, but choosing one brand isn't. Most manufacters now produce a complete line up. With the thought of an am/rec in mind, I don't imagine that throwing a focus, wasp, and stalker instead of a wizard, roc, and stalker is really gonna make a difference- yes I know the wizard and roc are "better" but how many rec players do you see pushin wizards 280? True you could be missing out on high speed a few years ago but not now. Did I miss out on the boss- not really, it would have been more like the ganitor for me seeing I can't break 400 yet. I have been discraft exclusive for a lil while now but I just purchased some lat recently. I went all dc because I live in mi. and dc plays a role in the local scene- I try to spend my dollar locally whenever possible. I bought lat because it looked amazing and i've heard good things- and I could buy it locally.
To the comment about dc being a copier or whatever- ever heard of the cyclone?
So if it sucks why is Discraft trying to copy it ;)~
What can I say I like the Groove. It's right next to the Nuke in my bag. Heck IMO the only reason to be brand loyal, is if you are getting paid by that brand!
