The marketing game is imperative to the ultimate success, almost regardless of quality.
Discmania? I hear a lot more people talking about PDs and P2s than Freaks and Psychos. Actually, I can't remember hearing/reading anyone mentioning Discmania discs by their "US names" with the exception of the Gremlin which was originally an Innova mold. How is their naming convention any better than Prodigy's?

The maximum has been changed for everything but putters.
