Retro Plastic Disc Sets

Just say these go live on DD's website. Same molds in a new plastic and available as 3 disc starter sets only at the moment ( no singles yet ).

Love that stamp on the Mercy in the set.

Anybody planning on grabbing one of these to try?

Anybody have any insight on the "Retro" plastic is designed to do/be, hard,firm,medium, bottom line basic plastic?

This is direct from the Dynamic Discs website:


Discs Included:

Latitude 64 Retro Fury (Driver)
Latitude 64 Retro Claymore (Midrange)
Latitude 64 Retro Mercy(Putter)

About the Retro Fury:
The Fury has been unleashed on everyone in the sport of Disc Golf who wants a control driver that is easy to use. The Fury is understable, glidey and a great step up for players that have used our Diamond but feel that the Saint is too overstable.

About the Retro Claymore:
The Claymore has a small dome and comfortable grip combined with a neutral flight that will suit most players. Compared to existing Latitude 64 molds, it will be slightly more overstable than the very popular Fuse.

About the Retro Mercy:
Mercy is the latest putt and approach disc released by us. Designed with a deeper rim and a slower speed than Latitude 64's earlier putters, it makes for a very good alternative in their putt and approach lineup. Stable and consistent flight for putting, approach, and short drives. What else can you wish for?

About Retro:
The mid 80s was a great time. Disc Golf had just come all the way up to Latitude 64 and we played all through the night in the midnight sun. Translucent discs were far from being invented and all discs were understable with today's standards. We remember those days with nostalgic feelings and wanted a plastic that would remind us of how it used to be. For a long time we have had requests that we should make discs that could be broken in more easily. Test after test after test led us to this new plastic blend that we have named Retro.

Yeah, they have 3 disc starter sets and SINGLES of the Prime Plastic available.

I guess I missed the DD baseline thread, that mentions both of these.

I'd buy a Claymore but not a disc set. Nice to see sets though, put these in Targets and Walmarts.

Looks like a nice starter set. I'd get one just to test the new plastic.

Anybody got to be toutchy-feely and throw with these yet?

How did these mold up?

I am thinking about grabbing a set on my next DD order.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think so. If you look at the pictures posted of the retro discs, it says "retro line" on the disc. However, if you look at the discs in prime plastic, it says "prime" on the disc. This leads me to believe that there are two different plastics here.
