Not only does Lat design their discs, they also make them using Lat plastic.

I know Lat64 makes the Evo line and helped Discmania set up the new factory, , , i just didnīt think Tomas would design the Original line.

And looking at that video it did not really feel like Eagle did that much "Designing his own disc" more told Tomas to make one.

Would you rather give him some clay to work with? AutoCAD?

I dont know where you are trying to get with this but I have no qualms about the arrangement. The guy is a seasoned disc designer in a business relationship with DM.

Partly true. Evolution line only, and not 1:1 same plastic as Lat64. Eventually they aim to bring Evolution line in-house too, i.e. Discmania manufactured.

In a world dominated by social media, where are the quick videos of discmania “manufacturing” their own discs? Not a single tour, or clip of discs actually being made. Weird that they are so proud of making their own molds now but all of us are relying on a single guy just saying that it’s happening. I don’t believe it for a second. “In house” is inside the latitude factory, until Jussi proves otherwise.

I'm sure Eagle "designed" the Rainmaker as much as Simon did the Tilt. They describe what they'd like it to be. Then sell, sell, sell it regardless of how it turned out. That's the job. They do it very well.

I would have been fun to see Eagle come to Sweden and test out a few designs, , but ok hard to do now.
But the Video was not that well made, Eagle didnīt say much, sure the call was MUCH longer and he could have made a better edit.

Iīm not picking on Discmania i like them. .but from a customers standpoint i see Lat64 and Discmania as competitors.
But then again i donīt get why Innova makes Infinites disc. . or why MVP makes TSA . .Gateway makes AGL and so on
Does the designer get a cut on every sold disc or does he just get a sum for the design?

Can it be tha "new molds sell" and a single company canīt have a endless amount of molds. . .so they start new companies to spread out the molds?

This is a brilliant idea! They should absolutely post a video of Eagle making his own disc out of clay.

If you want the P1, why not just throw the Aviar P&A. It's the exact same mold afaik

Startup costs to even get one disc out to a shop is quite big so it is much easier to buy "capacities" with someone already up and running. This is quite common also in the bike industry were Giant makes a substantial portion of all other brands bikes. Many brands design in house and outsource production and some just slap a sticker on a generic batch and call it their own.

Without a dubt Lat64 get compensation for everything they do for DM and who knows where the lines are drawn but in the end DM is a customer to Lat64.

Wonder how many molds Tomas made in 2021? All the Royal line, and DD new premium line....and all the Disc for Discmania
