dominator terminated?

I've heard that Innova stopped producing champion dominators but will continue blizzards. Is this true?

I was told by a guy from innova a while ago that stock stamped Champ Dominators were not going to be run again.

Must be the curse of the groove. Anything in that slot between the katana and boss is just doomed. I'd be curious to see how well its sold since being released.

From the Ask Dave D PDGA thread:

I was suprised when they arrived and were 175g. Champion Dominators w a Blizzard stamp. I guess I dont get it? What is the difference between the 175g. Champion vs. 175g. Blizzard?

I have 3 types now, the Star Stamped, the Factory Stamp and now the Blizzard Stamped, all max weight. Are the Blizzard stamped versions THE heavyweight version or is there a standard Champion stamped version like the first releases? Were the heavy Blizzards a mistake or were they stamped mistakenly?

Im sorry, Im confused.
Answer from Dave D:

Sorry for the confusion. Our staff has been confused too. The problem is the overlap between Blizzard and Champion. We haven't been able to draw a consistent line between when Champion stops and Blizzard starts and vice versa. If we take the Dominator for instance, we can only make Dominators in very heavy weights without Blizzard, so we decided to make them all Blizzard, which was more practical. Bosses now go up to 169 in Blizzard, I believe, as well as Destroyers. Previously, we could make Destroyers and Bosses in high sixties occasionally, but not consistently. With Blizzard, we can make them consistently in Blizzard. There will still be the 'tweeners that are Blizzard enhanced, but not completely Blizzard.
So it looks like 175's will be available but listed as Blizzards.

No reltionship with flight consistency whatsoever. All he's saying is before they had problems getting them in those weights, now, with a small amount of help from the blizzard technology, they can easily make higher 160's weights in champion plastic

I doubt it, unless 175g "Blizzard" Doms become really popular.
