I've not seen any manufacturer make discs consistently without flashing. Is it really that hard to take a sheet of 220 grit sandpaper and sand off the flashing? I can't believe this is a barrier for people.

I feel like fuzion/TP/gold beats in more consistently than lucid/vip/opto. I've had Lucid discs hold at a stability for a long while, then all of a sudden they lose stability on one weird tree hit or a couple rollers. Fuzion on the other hand always beats in gradually for me. It does so typically a little quicker than lucid, but never as a result of one bad throw. Or I guess another way of saying that is that Lucid beats in via a series of steps while Fuzion beats in on a gradual line. At least that's been my experience, anyway.

That new chameleon/chameleon+glimmer run of Lucid/Opto/Vip that Trilogy is running looks pretty damn amazing. I think they're going to sell well. I wish my colorshift Zones and Buzzzes looked like this:

It seems like they're starting to focus more on expanding plastic selection rather than simply pumping out a ton of molds

Plastics are where the action is. Way too many molds on the market.

Yeah you think most companies would do this. Like they have their top selling molds and their staples. Once a mold has been in production for a few years and is a bottom tier seller then imo they should axe it. Cut their losses and try something new.

Worst flashing I ever had on a disc was on the Comet I had, of all things. Felt like you were holding a steak knife

Never had any flashing issues with any Discraft mids, especially not Comets. Both Trilogy and Kastaplast have been horrible.
At least Kastaplast is tough enough to not gouge when one is cutting the flashing off.
