Dimple Discs?

From Latitude's Facebook:

"When Tomas and Johan are in Emporia having a good time at the GBO, David and Svante with the guys and girl at the L64° factory in Skellefteċ have been having some fun producing a disc in a new technology for us.
Time to push the aerodynamic boundaries with a first, limited unique run.
001/999 is cooling down right now.
To be continued..."

That's what I was noticing also. I think covering the entire surface would be more effective than what Quest tried to do. Very curious if they work like they are saying they could.

I enjoyed reading the comments on it. Ranging from people wanting to be testers to a guy with much hate and truculence for anything Lat64. People assume it's been tried and disregarded but the physics is solid behind the idea if it's executed properly. Quest did not do so in my opinion but this is not the same dimple size or pattern. It could provide some extra loft and distance. If not they'll scrap it and you'll be able to have a piece of swedish limited run plastic. I'm not overly excited about it but I'll buy and toss one around if it's not priced above $25. Oh and the comment about when they would do an overmold disc was great.

Can't tell much about it but would make sense it's a speed 12 or 13. Rim looks to be about that size too. If that bottom pic shows the underneath edge you can't see any slant to that rim at all. Which is unique most everything they produce at least has a slight + mold style up to the halo/riot which have sever slants to them.

Who knows why people do what they do lol. He just expressed he hated them and this design would fail because Quest failed. I don't see it as the same. Same idea, way different execution. Similar to what they tried with their opto air plastic. They took the shortcomings of innova's version and corrected on them. Quality control has been better in my opinion and it works better maintaining the original stability of the mold at lighter weights.

We'll see how it turns out. They look interesting for sure. If nothing else perhaps a bit of extra placebo confidence and better grip with sweaty hands or in the rain.

What if you happen to scuff half the dimples or something? Seems like being on the underside of the flight plate would make more sense to create lift with the air going faster on top of the disc...no?

Maybe this will make their discs fly like the ratings. ;-)
