Do you think Innova is so resistant because it's just not cost effective or just harder to mold champ plastic in the thick rims of the pig? I don't get the lack of response.

I imagine their thought process is something like this...

Innova: "Let's put off molding the tens of thousands of discs we need to put on Wal-Mart's shelves while we run 400 Champ Glow Pigs for DGCR."

Your best bet is to ask about a mold they'll soon run and ask for something in a plastic they don't normally run. I want Champ (or Star) Polecats like you guys want Pigs. The only chance I'll get at getting them is to have them try to run some when they have to run DX or R-Pro and have the mold already on the machine.

I'm sure Innova's making a decent profit. I think it's time to buy the Proshop a couple molding machines so they can start filling these niche orders. After some of the discs we've gotten them to run, you'd think it'd be enough for them to realize it's time to invest in the serious golfer.

I don't think it is a bad idea to get the Proshop their own molding machine (if they don't have one already) but I am always suprised when people think Innova should "invest in the serious golfer". I am pretty certain that around 95% or more of their sales come from non-serious golfers so why in the world would they pour money into meeting the needs/demands of so few people?

It's no secret that this market is slowly drifting to other companies. It's also growing. The Proshop was created for the serious golfer. If they want it to succeed, they'll have to invest in it. This market may be small, but it buys in bulk. It's also growing along with the casual market. <Tinfoil hat alert> Neglect it, and people shop elsewhere. Lose that market, and you lose the legitimacy of your brand. Lose that, and you become Wham-O.</Tinfoil hat alert>
