Reptilian Disc Golf's First Mold: The Scale (OS P&A)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello my DGCR brethren!
As promised, my little disc golf label has produced our first mold! It was an incredibly fun process to be able to sit down with the CAD artist, discuss, dissect and brainstorm to create our very own mold. The Scale is the first mold to be developed by RDG and it is a disc that I have been wanting since I first began playing disc golf.

With the Scale our goal was to create a go to P&A that shines off the tee. To do this, we decided to revamp the Wizard (my favorite putter being an STL boy) and make it into something a little different. Through several hours of time working with models, the resulting mold features a more substantial nose than the Wizard. Another unique aspect of the Scale mold is a thumb contour along the leading edge. This contour isn't a like a traditional thumb-trac being that there is no elevated edge. Instead, we dropped the plate just slightly and let the molding process take care of the rest. The end result is a flight plate that has a distinct, yet gradual drop leading up to the wing. This contour provides a worn in feel, right out of the box.

By creating this new top, RDG will have the ability to produce four unique putter molds by pairing with the Gateway bottoms. The proto run of Scales wil feature Gateway tooling, but the production runs will feature RDG tooling. I will be leaking some testers and protos to folks very soon and I look forward to seeing some opinions on how you all like it! Thank you for the continued support. Also a mega shout out to David at Gateway for bringing this unique opportunity to life.

SUMMARY: Overstable P&A disc with the heart of a Wizard and the fade of a Rhyno. Soon to be submitted for PDGA approval. Will be produced in a variety of plastics, just as the Wizard.

I hope to see the SCALE in people's signatures within a matter of months ;)

Very cool! Might have to try one out.

I'll definitely check one out, been throwing Wizards for 5 years now and the one thing I always wanted is a more OS version. I am excited!

I couldn't be more excited to get these into people's hands. I was really hoping to get that chunky flight without being a beefcake. Initially it appears that the design is creating the exact flight that we wanted. I'm going to attempt to get some video shot soon to show this baby in flight.

No lucky trying to get the "scaly" effect on the surface of the disc?

We figured out how to do it. I just want to make sure that the mold jives with everyone before we do it. Adding the texture to the nose is irreversible. No retooling once we do that.

Wow, looks really nice.. and sounds great too.

Not to count chickens, but way to kill it on your first mold dude.

Thanks!
Relatively safe bet when half of the disc is WIZARD!

All I had to do was design a top that I know folks have been begging for and BOOM, we've got a disc that I think will click with players.
