Whaaat? I get the "Zombee" reference, but it's a little disappointing to see them jump on the whole zombie bandwagon

Might be a cool stamp if Innova or Discmania did it.

I'm gonna be that guy and ask: Does a name really matter? I would still throw the Axis even if it were called the Flaccid. If it works, it works.

In this case, the Flaccid probably would be a term for a disc that doesn't work, but you get my drift.

Discraft takes the cake as the worst disc namers in the sport. Super cheesy? Check. Jumping on some pop culture phenomenon? Check. Abusing an already tired naming scheme? Check.

My god that's an awful name on multiple levels.
