Ease up, tiger. We're all disc golfers. "Bored internet nerds" is a bit of an unnecessary insult. It's OK if we decide to have discussions and opinions on here.

Don't worry, we're not really fighting. Mom and dad both still love you very much.

i'm including myself in that 'insult' which i say with a laugh. you wouldn't get so offended if it didn't hit close to home. anyone with over 1000 posts on this site is automatically a nerd. let's be real.

lol, no, not offended. You'll never meet a guy harder to get worked up. I haven't been good and upset since The Phantom Menace.

And I make video game disc golf shirts. I don't think I'd ever try to argue against being a huge nerd.

I have a hard time believing they are intentionally leading us on. Something probably happened, maybe the proto hasn't come in..or maybe it did and it was nothing like they though and they don't want to show us some turd of a bag.

That's my worry. There was talk before about Voodoo changing their manufacturer. It's possible it didn't work out as well as planned, or who knows what.

Not that we'd ever know. DG companies don't talk shop to us consumer folk.

if something got snagged up beyond their control...say something.

obviously they make a good product and have a good following, people are obviously going to tune in. If they are saying they are going to have things to share for a couple weeks in a row, and then have nothing...why say something in the first place
