I can't imagine why Innova isn't making these ASAP with a 240 of them wanted!

End sarcasm.

MTL,

I honestly have no idea how many it would take to make this happen...what would a reasonable number be in this situation?

All I know for sure is that I love to throw my Pro Pigs and I would very much appreciate an opportunity to throw them in Pro or any other type of plastic besides R-Pro at this point.

240 is an insanely small amount to a company that literally sells tens of thousands of discs a week.

Beyond that - I have a sweeet champion SL for sale. with an 11X eagle stamp on it. Only released to team innova players. 8/10. Faint ink on rim. Max.

^^Yes it is a small amount of people, but the people that have looked at and posted interest on this site is also a VERY small portion of the disc golf community. 240 discs guaranteed from this small number of golfers is pretty impressive in my opinion.

first of all they ran the gators with about 400 requests. i wouldn't call that in comparison insanely small, especially since we're talking factory store and not the entire corporation. they run small batches of a lot of flukey disc/plastic combinations.

secondly, peddle your discs somewhere else. this thread needs positivity not a negative nancy trying to move the thread in a direction other than forward.

Understood...that is exactly why we are only seeking a CFR run if at all possible. This is also the reason that the following is posted in the updated list every time the number grows: we represent a small fraction of the community that purchases your discs on a regular basis.

PM sent on the SL....

They ran probably 1000 Totem TeeBirds from existing stock. They probably ran that many glow Gators in two runs. You're going to need to impress Innova, and I don't see 240 doing that. We can't get glow PDs or Rhynos run, and I guarantee they'd sell at least 500 within a day or two.

There are more lurkers than members on here at any given time. Our count of 240 is probably around 500-750+ when you include lurkers. And all of them would buy more if they liked the disc, as well as us. These things have a snowball effect. Innova KNOWS this.

Let's get this disc made!

No need to be a hater.........as tourny director for 2013 u.s. Masters you should try to get them to run them as a cfr for the event I bet it would be the best selling fund raiser disc for the tourny
