Default Who's running the show?

I'm really pleased with some of the new products coming out of Discraft recently: Heat, Undertaker, Thrasher, Jawbreaker plastic, etc. There just seems to be more energy and innovation from a company that I thought had become somewhat stagnant. Have there been changes in the leadership at Discraft? I know that Jim Kenner was the founder and long-time owner; is he still involved? Everyone knows who the boss is at companies like Innova, Legacy and Dynamic Discs. Who's running the show at Discraft?

No idea who is in charge, unless Al Haig took over (old-timers will get that joke; young whippersnappers may not).

But I totally agree about the innovation at Discraft. Bold, bright colors instead of the soft pastels, good plastics like Jawbreaker coming out for putters, tc.

I thought I heard it was Jim's nephew, not sure of his name.

Looks like Jim Kenner is president, and Mike Wagner is vice president.

Every once in a while, I run into Mark Ellis at a course.... hopefully I'll remember to ask next time I do.

But I agree, Discraft has definitely stepped their game up starting with the intro of the Crank.

Don't you know they need to step their game back up?

It wouldn't matter to me if Kermit the Frog was running Discraft as long as they keep making the best midranges in the game.
