That's my thinking.

Looks like the best thing Discmania did was actually own the names. Imagine having to reverse engineer something that people have grown accustom to only to have to rename it.

This begs the question of whether re-approval is needed. I can't imagine they'd be doing this without consulting the pdga prior, to see if they'd need to resubmit.

My initial thoughts would be that when they made the mold prototypes they did contact them about re-approval, since the names would be the same. The pdga says "no re-approval needed" and DM has their release dates

I wonder if that would require them to get approval for the "new" molds

edit: whoops VictorB beat me to it

It’ll be interesting to see how many of the P2 Prototypes they have available tomorrow at the DM store.

Also interested to see what the demand is.

Also interested to see how this news affects the market for Innova Originals.

Be interested to see what the prices will be.

Discmania is gunna piss off so many people tomorrow when they dont have enough supply to meet the demand

Wonder what Innova thinks of this? . . and Lat64, if Discmania can make the Original by them self, why not make ALL the disc them self?

Or is it Lat 64 that have helped Discmania to set up this new factory?

LOL right? I really hope it goes the way of the Royal Rage II release where there are plenty of discs and everybody can get a pair. I think they did the right thing with that last release. I was able to easily get a pair of Logics and the color combo of RR2 that I wanted. Ill be happy if the "New" Originals are close to their innova made counterparts, and there are TONS of them available especially the Signature Series discs. It will also be huge for their tour players because they wont be limited on how many they can sell. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out ;)

They had a ton of product for their last drop. I am hoping that the drop shortages are a thing of the past.

In the video, the machines are the exact same ones that Lat 64 uses, so I would guess they at least helped out a little but who knows. I wonder if DM will become part of the Trilogy brand (bye bye Westside?).
