The Reptilian Disc Golf Thread
 
As the company has grown from custom stamps to now having their own molds and plastics it is time for a thread to discuss what is going on with the company and generally show our love.

I have really enjoyed their first mold, the Scale, as well as their Fossil plastic. The future seems very bright for this company. I for one look forward to the ride.

Why not start with some pics of the newly announced drivers?

Does anyone know anything about DareDevil discs, the production partners on RDG's new molds? I've heard of them, and apparently they are from Canada, but other then that I've got absolutely nothing.

Same boat, always wanted to try out a few of their discs (Timberwolf, Beaver, etc) but never got around to it.
Anyone with opinions on their plastic?
Great partnership, though. I'm all for taking interesting chances and I like this move a lot.

Only what Marshall street has on their flight guide.

Most drivers are speed 8 or 9 and slightly OS to OS.

I'm very curious to hear about their plastic as well.

Yellow is the Raptor, Orange is the Ptero.

The Ptero looks VERY TL-like to me. The TL is probably my favorite fairway mold, so I'll probably like the Ptero immediately, but I don't really have any reason to bag something TLish when I have SO many TLs already. I'll give it a go anyways, because at this point RDG could put a reptile stamp on a groove and I'd buy it.

The Raptor has more appeal to me. Looks beefy without being Firebird overstable, which is great by me. I like moderately overstable drivers, but I really don't want/need/use the mega OS beefmonsterhooks. If it was Brinster Teebird overstable with a speed 8-9ish rim it would probably find a spot in my bag immediately. I've been using the thunderbird there and haven't really been blown away by it. That slot is the least used disc in my bag by far, I wouldn't mind giving something else a go there.

I've always wanted to try Daredevil. With them molding some RDG, it will give me a chance to feel up their plastic blend and probably entice me to branch out into some more of their molds.

As for the new drivers... Raptor looks like a beefy Teebird to me and the Ptero really reminds me of some disc, I just can't put my finger on it. So excited for these discs. Although Jcass said the mid will be awhile, I'm really looking forward to rolling with an all RDG Gecko loadout. Some Lizards, a Scale, Ptero, and Raptor. I'll throw a Roc or two in there... Or I'll just have to track down some kind of RDG stamped mid (hint, hint). Totally digging RDG and all that they're doing.

Raptor looks like a Valk and the Ptero looks like and Eagle, to me.

I've been trying to get some Daredevil and and actually thinking about buying a bunch from them. This is a good call.

Looks like retools of the Sabertooth and Timberwolf, not 100% though.

Going strictly off of inbounds that looks plausible to me. Hopefully the raptor isn't that beefy, I'm hoping for more PD then Firebird.

Wow! Daredevil out of nowhere! Love it, good call Jcass!
