What's the most game-changing innovation in discs in the last 10 years?

So I'm curious what the DGCR crowd would say is the most game-changing innovation in discs over the past 10 years? Does anything really stand out as a 'game changer'? What do you think?

The game changer is in your head. NO DISC IS A GAME CHANGER. there are discs that are nice and every disc does something different but it is all about how much you practice and get your form down.

That groove in the Monarch. Clearly a game changer.

Weighted overmolds. Air bubbles. Rubber.

More durable plastic blends and molds
When I started in 1997, the discs would be toast after a few tree hits from us new to the sport. Once Discraft's "elite pro" and Innova's "champion edition" came along, we didn't need to replace discs as often and the flights wouldn't change as dramatically since they took longer to beat-in.

^^ As much as we'd like to think so, 1997 wasn't 10 years ago.

When were wide rimmed drivers introduced? Speed 12+? If applicable, that would be my choice.

For old guys and people with a weak arm (like me)... probably something like Blizzard/Opto Air plastic.

Maybe whatever rule/spec that was put into place that created the 'race for the widest rim/fastest disc.' Although I'm not sure if that actually qualifies as really as an 'innovation.' But you can't deny that it hasn't impacted every single manufacturer and player in some sort of way.
