I hope people keeping throwing/cherishing the stuff. It's comical. Makes me think of this for some reason (butthole sunshine probably):

I may like my dayglow 1.2 QOLFs but I'll live if I cannot access any more. I love my 08' Worlds Drones but that's only because they have more ESP in them than stock FLX runs. If Discraft released ESP Drones I would sell them all off and laugh at guys like myself that try to track them down. At least I don't spend $50 to $150+ on them

Why do people care so much about what others spend their money on?

They earned it. You didn't. Get over it.

Is it because you wish you had more expendable income? Jealousy?

You're turning this thread into something it's not...

I don't think you read the OP

This thread isn't about value at all, more bag theory and how the market lineup may evolve in the 2nd-phase era of premium plastic.

But to brag an example into your off-topic, I purchased my most recent vintage synthesizer with the funds from a single disc I sold to a Trilogy fan. I am ALL FOR the economy around desirable plastic. People dig what they dig and if nobody's starving cuz of it, then rock on!

Right now I'm dealing with a synth from 1998 (had it since release) that I really, really love -- but it's tied to some old computer formats and I have to maintain a vintage Mac to assist it. Meanwhile there are iOS and OSX apps that could approximate the instrument. I'm really struggling with keeping it in my rig, with all its necessary workarounds and lack of modern interfacing. I hate to bring value into this, but its value has dropped because of the interface, and that brings suuuuper cheap $350 used ones to the market, and backups are TEMPTING.

The above situation is similar in a way to vintage candy plastic. It WAS the best, now we see it has an effective lifespan. This fact came to light with CE plastic in recent years, from a production era with ONE primo plastic and about seven molds. In a couple years, discs from an era with dozens of primo plastics and hundreds of molds will decay to a fragile state. The clear signs of decay became a buzz word in the secondary market.

The OP was about how decaying primos will affect bag theory and new developments.

On a high level, the criteria you use to fill your bag with discs. Durability based on cost being a small part of the geekdom.

this is kind of what i was thinking too, when i read all the hatred and animosity on here towards collectors, distance throwers and pros in general

imagine if casual players ruled the ball golf world and pros were looked at with general disdain; that is the current pdga and dgcr
