Well I guess the R Pro Pig I picked up is ok since it's pretty stiff and I hit some trees with it and it didn't fly apart. I'll keep it in the rotation and report back after I get some more rounds on it. The main problem is it weighs 170 but even at the weight it is very overstable and works well into the wind.
Oh yeah Run some champs.

I've had some R-Pros that were pretty decent, stayed stable for a while. I'd use them on water holes. I've also had some that got ****ty real fast.

It's why we need some Champs

I'd probably take two. I putt with Magics, but Pigs are awesome for approaches in the wind.

INNOVA, we represent a small fraction of the community that purchases your discs on a regular basis.

As of 1/7/2013, we would like to purchase 349 Champ Pigs. Is this enough for a CFR or regular production run???

I'd buy one.

Heck, I'd buy 20 if I had that kind of money. I'm not sure what I'd do with 20, but that's beside the point.

I don't necessarily want champ, I'd be good with any plastic that isn't R-Pro. Even DX, if they made a pig hotstamp for it, instead of the boring Factory Store one.

Echo Star would be sexy.

What Innova realizes and you guys don't, is that at least 1/4 of the people who commit to buying one on here will probably not buy one if it actually happens.

I was thinking that number was closer to 10% or 15%. Either way, the people who have asked to get a number on the list will be contacted by me or another Pig fan if/when Innova produces Pigs in anything but r-pro plastic.

Personally, I am planning to buy more than the number I posted because I have some friends who don't use DGCR that would love to spend some $$$ on pigs produced with good plastic. These customers would easily make up for the 10--25% who don't follow through with their promise to buy here.

As stated several times in this thread, we only represent a small fraction of Innova's target market. I would certainly hope/trust that they already understand this as well.

Doesn't matter. Even if half of us bale, the lurkers will pick up the slack, and then some. Many of those who said they'd buy one, would buy two or three. Like Jason said, we're a small piece of the pie.
