It looks EXACTLY like Chameleon. I didn’t think that the “EYETALIAN” plastic was in use beyond the MD3 and DD3, currently.

A few pages back, though, there was a comment about the Italian plastic pellets (why that’s actually a selling point is odd - Italy isn’t known for petrochemicals) finding their way to the Latitude facility.

Just making sure. Thanks all!

Is it reasonable to assume that all the molds that Latitude 64 is making for Discmania, as well as the molds made by Yikun for Discmania, are owned by these companies, while Discmania owns the names?

So, if Discmania eventually moves to manufacturing all their own discs, they will have to re-create the new molds like the Tactic and Tilt, just as they are doing now with the Innova produced original Discmania molds. Or, in the case of the Lat64 molds at least, Discmania could seek to buy the actual molds, which may be possible, since they apparently use the same line of manufacturing equipment that Lat64 does.

I was in the Dynamic Discs store and the clerk said that most Trilogy molds have a seam on the underneath, vertically down, front tip of the wing (Defender is an exception). Innova molds have the seam sticking horizontally out of the pointy wing edge.

Which will the new Discmania drivers use? That might give hints about manufacturing.

It’s not a reasonable assumption. The reasonable assumption is that DM knew how the setup of their partnership with Innova presented a risk to them, and put up hurdles to their growth. They wouldn't enter into a new agreement that put them right back in the same position.

By 2019, when the DM-Lat64 partnership was announced, DM was likely already planning for the creation of the new factory. The most likely scenario is that they entered into the partnership with Lat64 with the understanding that a transition to in-house production was the end goal. The location of the DM factory in the same town as the Lat64 factory suggests a high degree of partnership in setting up the new production facilities.

The Lost Valley Open tournament this past weekend had Mutants and Splices (stock stamped, with a tournament overstamp) in the players packs. They're coming.

This seems to be their marketing strategy: hopeless disappointment followed by surprise

Nah.

Hopeless disappointment followed by surprise and then followed again by more disappointment.
