Innova isn't getting left behind at all. Innova & Discraft sell a lot more discs than Prodigy & Lat. One big reason is b/c Innova sells discs in stores that aren't just disc shops (Walmart, Gas Stations ect.). Also most people when they just start playing get Innova or Discraft discs (I'm sure most of us here on DGCR did also). The people who play this sport just for fun & don't care about PLH, OAT & proper form many never get any discs from any other companies than Innova or Discraft.

I've even seen some pro disc golfers selling discs on facebook auctions, Catrina Allen just sold a 750 M3 for $65.

Ebay is not much better. Here is a clear production Roc3 for 149.00 or best offer. Plus $3.00 for shipping. WTF!!!! How about 13.99. Plus shipping.

I agree with you but they are losing out to some of us diehards who buy a ton more discs. I see beginners normally with 1-2 discs. I have around 80 and surely some of us have several hundred. Us 1%ers spend a lot, enough to make the boutique Companies money. I just think if Innova improved their plastics they could gain some market share back.

Im not arguing against it at all....Im all for people selling the stuff for what people will pay...its just there seems to be a lot more people out there now with more money than sense and they're driving up values fro the rest of us that actually want to throw this stuff.

That auctions not over yet.......but thats kinda what I'm getting at. I put 30 on it which I felt was totally reasonable though I knew I had absolutely zero chance of getting it for that. I was at DGLO and Big Jerm had a team stamped D1 that he would sell for 25, I didn't get it I was out of money, but try getting any one of them to sell you one for that now....why do it what you can get 60+ for it and you don't even have to leave the house.


GG also recently put some stuff up, Paige Pierce and Sarah Hokum Ive seen selling.

"Can't blame people for taking advantage.....you know what PT Barnum said....."


that may be true, but that greed is like a virus slowly eating away at the core of humanity leading us down a blind alley and ultimately to our own demise

it's like funkadelic said "america eats its young"
