If they put out a Halo FD I will buy that, yes. I will also buy the new Discmania FD whenever it's available.

They are making it her tour series disc, according to Hailey right? or has somebody else come out and confirmed that?

I know PDGA measurements are notoriously inaccurate. I should have added that to my original post. I'm just pointing out possibilities. It is also entirely possible, and more likely than not, that it is a halo FD. but as far as I know so far the only confirmation we have is from Hailey

Already have one of each but I'm a horrible person. Probably have 20 of each with the DM brand.

I refuse to believe that the actual measurements are inaccurate to a notorious extent as it is not rocket science to operate a caliper. I am way more inclined to believe that the discs sent to reapproval, or the discs you measure at home, are indeed very different from the discs sent to PDGA. It is not that uncommon to find visibly different discs within the same run, let alone across different runs.

I'm not entirely sure if your comment implied (unjustly) PDGA's incompetence in measuring things or if you referred to run-to-run variation in disc dimensions but if it was the latter, then feel free to ignore this reply :o

It looks like Innova is putting out what I assume is another DM originals mold in the "Hawkeye" that recently got PDGA approval. So that is now 3 molds - the FD, PD, and what might be an FD2 from Innova in a matter of 6-8 weeks. What is the general thought on this from Discmania throwers? I cannot help but feel slightly perturbed at the childish behavior as in - first undercutting DMs supply knowing full well that Innova owned the molds and then turning around to re-sell the molds on their own. I get that they are good molds and I am half tempted to try them out, but honestly don't really feel like giving my money to Innova based not only on their treatment of their players (based on reports from Kona, Ricky, etc) but also how they totally screwed DM over.

I agree. We don’t know the details of how all of this went down, but Innova’s move seems morally bogus but business brilliant. They are The Godfather company in this game, and it sucks that it’s so hard to compete with them.

Because of this, I wish DM could move 3X faster to be more competitive. Stating the obvious, they could sell a lot more if they had a lot more available. Hopefully 2022 can see exponential growth for them so they can reclaim their place in the market, but they can’t do that with standard color (i.e. no swirl/non-aesthetic) plastics, subpar stamps, minimal and sporadic restocks, disappointing mystery boxes, dissatisfied releases, high prices, and low durability (mainly d-line flex 2). They’re reinventing, we all get that, but my hope for this company is not just to crawl back to their old place but to claim a newer, higher position in the pecking order. DM has what it takes and deserves to look and operate like Discraft, so my hope is they/we can get there. 5 year plan?

Do you think they’re saving/shipping discs for the biggest restock in the history of disc golf or do you think this ebb and flow will be how they have to restock since they have to split and ship their inventory overseas?

Leading to my ultimate question: do you think we will see a stateside manufacturing site for DM in the future (likely in Colorado), and do you think that would help with the problem?

The entirety of 2021 we took things via air, a decision that many companies weren't willing to take because it's outrageously expensive. 2022 will bring somewhat regular container shipments and higher volume restocks in turn. First one should arrive in a couple weeks. More urgent disc releases such as signature ones will likely still be taken via air since they are more time sensitive. Lots of improvements to build on this year for sure :) Q1 is going to be a banger

Would be cool if there comes a day when you could buy swirly s-line cloud breaker online without having either anxiety about the 10x retail price or smashing the computer buttons to get through checkout.....

Hopefully it is the bottom now and the future will be better

Latitude 64 next door has it figured out pretty well. Discmania will catch up.

BTW, is that P2 machine still pumping out P2s until demand is met, or is it put to different work?

My comment was more to say that the PDGA measurements are not a good source of proof for a mold. It could easily be that the measurements are 100% accurate, but if I give you 5 destroyers from 5 different runs you are not going to see the same measurements. There is enough variablity disc to disc to explain the differences in measurements between the original FD, the fairway disc and the hawkeye. It was not meant to be an attack on the PDGA, although I see how it came off that way.
