110 new course worldwide for the #1 Discatcher targets. That's best case 1,980 targets x $400 each = $792k revenue. At a (decent) margin of 20%, that's only $158k profit, a small drop in the bucket when compared with disc sales.

From what I can tell targets don't have a very good margin, 20% is just a swag and I'd be surprised if it was that high. The economies of scale just aren't there yet. This is why it's so hard to get any kind of discount from a manufacturer, despite almost all of the targets being manufactured overseas.

So course designers: don't plan on getting much of a discount on targets, they are already priced low and the competition is going to keep them low.
