Maybe in terms of, from the factory to retailers, you might be right.

I'd bet the Warship alone has outsold the entire M-line up to this point.

People complain a lot about Westside/Lat64/DD discs not flying up to their ratings seem to indicate.

IMO...

1) Many of the swedish discs have an extraordinary amout of glide. The discs that have a lot of glide seem to fly a little understable compared to what their numbers would indicate.

2) Many of their recent releases do not like to be over powered. If you throw a stag, tursas, or underworld with 100% power, they will flip. A throw at 80% power will have better results.

Just because you, and 2 other people you know IRL have some WS discs doesnt mean the market shares your love.

*disclaimer
Im not hating on WS in any way, they were an example used by someone else

I am very close with 2 seperate people who sell discs for a living in a shop and for tourney payout.

I can tell you that in my area, ws isnt that well known or popular. There are a couple guys who throw swords, and some noobs who bought kings. Not too many of the other molds floating around. One person in particular (a fellow disc whore) bought one of each of their molds that were out before the warship was released. Other than that, they dont sell that well.

Part of that is marketing (or lack therof), part of that is that I live in the midwest and outside of forum geeks nobody can keep up with the 500 new deivers so they throw innova.

I am not crazy enough tothink they dont do well in other regions, however, i find it very hard to believe that most shops or vendors have trouble keeping their shelves full with WS stuff. Which isnt the case for prodigy stuff (at the moment).

Call LSDiscs (not sure if theyre a retailer of prodigy or not), call DGW, call PIaS on the east coast or by the gulf, call any shop that carries both and i would give you odds that they have sold exponentially more PRoDG than WS.

At our shop, Westside/Lat 64/DD is outselling them as well.

True

Our PIAS got some prodigy discs in last week a day after they got new westside. I think they had about 15 or 16 prodigy and about 10 - 12 westside discs come in. As of Wednesday, 14 of the prodigy discs are still there. Only 4 or 5 of the westside discs that came in last week is still there.
