Most especially because of the location of the new factory (same place as Latitude), my guess is that Discmania entered into some sort of limited partnership or contract with Latitude 64 wherein Discmania secured the services of Lat64 in learning the disc design and disc manufacture process. Part of that agreement likely included the manufacture of the the first several years of the Evolution line. It would be completely unsurprising to me if Lat64 now had some sort of ownership stake in Discmania, given that companies typically don’t like to just help set up a competitor.

The pain of the last few years was going to be gone through whenever they decided to set up their own manufacturing. For everyone who thought they should have done it “earlier”, all that would have done is produce the exact same pain while DM was in a less stable position, market wise. The only thing that would have mitigated that is if Innova was the company that had set up DM with manufacturing.

So, did Innova get a shot at this? Or did it just make the most sense for a Finnish company to partner with a well established, but not market leading, European manufacturer of very high quality discs? I’d guess the latter, but it’s possible that Innova wasn’t interested on the same terms that Lat64 was.

Well done Discmania. Seems like a fairy tale, but I’m looking forward to throwing your plastic again.

I feel like they won't start throwing the new plastic until after Worlds, just for consistency sake. But who knows? Maybe thats why Jussi did the announcement the day before Worlds starts, so everyone will be talking about it on coverage and stuff... on second thought, thats DEFINITELY why Jussi did it. :thmbup:

I reaaaally hope that the new "D-line" plastic is closer to Innovas version than to Exo or Geo plastic. Not really a fan of those Lat64 baseline plastics.

Has there been any comments from Innova on any of this?

Jolt 06-21-2021 01:24 PM

how long before an S-line disc comes out?

Eagle and Simon is "odd", they throw mostly C-line type drivers,,,,feel like most other Pros throw S-line, ESP, Star type plastic in their drivers.

What would they say besides "good luck, it's been great, blah blah blah" none of which they would actually mean.
