Wrong thread, sorry

Back when production was limited, a Mystery Box was hard to get and DM discs were hard to find.
If you got a Mystery Box, you could flip most of the discs and make your money back, and sometimes even make a little $$.
For better or worse, the second-hand market for DM has crashed.
You can get pretty much anything you want from wherever you want, so why buy from eBay or FB?

Besides the CG FD or the S-Line MD1 or the DD1 or maybe the VaporLux Enigma, nothing else is really that re-sellable.
Message to DM, you’re gonna have to do better to sell more MB’s.
Take a hint from Ledgestone, they sell tons of discs by just recycling molds into hard to find, desirable plastics.
If you had FILLED the MB with things like the S MD1, the CG FD, the Vapor Enigma and maybe a Lux Logic or NEO Link or more discs in unique, plastic combos (and not just a bunch of X-outs and discs you couldn’t sell), then I might have gotten 1 or 2 or 3.
Marketing is about creating buzz and creating a need.
Just not enough here to get excited about…
This the first MB I’ve passed on in quite a while.
Just one person’s opinion.

Interesting take. What do you base this on?

And wow, what did skizzle do to get banned?

Kept whining about leaving and deleting his account, which he didn't. Then asked to be banned and got his wish.

Limited Edition Discs
 
If you could pick ONE of the Limited Edition discs from this MB run (color glow FD, s-line md1, or metal flake md3, which would you pick?

Based on dissatisfied customer comments/reviews AND the general overstock of all of their products, which I take as fewer people buying their stuff.

Curious to know if you’d disagree? Seems like the DM craze/following is not what it once was, but I’m not an OG so perhaps I’m misreading the landscape.

I tend to think now they just have way more in stock, not that people are buying any less.

I think lots of what happens on this forum for example is kinda within this niche bubble of hardcore dg'ers that have been around for years.

Says nothing about the hordes of people that got into it the last 2 summers.

I have no sales figures but looks to me theyre still growing. Suggests to me theyre doing fine.

I dont judge, either way you see it. Its just kinda funny when first its "terrible drop, sold out in 15 secs, couldnt buy one to save my life" and now its "must be something wrong since they dont sell out. I think I'll not buy one"

I wouldn’t say I was a fanatic but when Discmania moved to Colorado and having Eagle on the team (from Colorado) I was enticed to try quite a few of their molds. For a couple of years you could find the P2, FD, PD, and MD3 in my bag as those discs worked for my game and I was supporting a local company.

Having said that, as their relationship with Innova was on the downhill slide I opted to start weaning myself off their products not knowing at the time what the future had in store for their company.

Once they started distributing their Swedish models the molds and plastics just weren’t the same stuff that I had previously enjoyed and since I had already kind of moved on I just didn’t see a reason to move back towards bagging Discmania.

Have you held or thrown the IS3? Do you think I’m wrong for assuming that they’re identical, especially since they’re the same exact color way? The old night strike color glow looked different ( innova, I know, but still).
