Yep, it could be that their products would be more inconsistent. Again, I have no experience.

This has been my experience also. Mids and putters pretty much fly as advertised and don't vary much over plastic types.

Their big undiscovered sport is Wushu Kung Fu. Although calling it undiscovered is saying cuase Westerners don't know about it it's undiscovered. It is probably a top two or three sport in China.

It is essentially performance art, where the moves are fighting based, combined with gymnastics. Any Kung Fu movie you've ever seen has its base in this art form.

I would love to see Wushu come to the Olympics, it's way better than rhythmic gymnastics.

Let's see if I can make everyone annoyed. Inconsistencies across batches and between plastics and even dyes means pretty much that any given manufacture can put out almost any kind of disc, if they have a fairly wide range of products. The discs Paul uses are lovingly selected and don't fly a whole lot like disks of a similar name. This is why The pros trade and gift discs. One finds a woohoo discs and shares the love.

The notion that InnoCraft Is better than Latbram is silly. You'd never get to the bottom of such an arguement. I will note an exception. It may be possible that either MVP or Vibram is more consistent, due to their unique products, overmold and rubbers. I say this cause I've not used enough of either to judge.
You just reminded me of my experience at 2014 Worlds when one guy that I was playing with swore that the only reason that McBeth and the other top pros are good is because they have a whole lot of discs to chose from to get a "perfect" disc in terms of dominess/weight etc, so I asked him if PM and him switched bags for a round, would he be able to beat him. He was sure that he would be able to.

Inevitable company consolidation....Westside sold to DD and Lat64.

I know, old news 30 minutes ago. I had to.

With Discraft bumping him to the Elite Team midseason and giving him a Tour Series Force over some other veteran members, I figure the contract extends to cover 2018-19. I hope he sticks with them beyond that, though. They need some young guns.
