I play a mixed bag....my 'turn off' for Dynamic Discs was when I lost my Witness. Loved that disc. I'm primarily a RHFH player - the Witness was perfect for me in the 168 weight. Then a bad throw and some wind pushed it into the lake - never to be found. I went to buy another one....Out Of Production. Found out DD cancelled it because it didn't sell well and there was another disc similar to the Witness (Lat64 Diamond). Okay, I understand the "didn't sell well", but a comparable disc? Nope. Diamond is a <160 g weight disc. They do make a 170 g, but it is almost impossible to find. And the Diamond isn't flat topped - the Witness was. I ended up with an Innova Sidewinder and am loving that disc. Lost my first one, but didn't have any problem getting another.

Get rid of my favorite disc? I'll go elsewhere then.

This is why I stick to long established classic molds. They're never going OOP as long as the game exists. Plus between them all they cover every shot needed. Anything else is for fun/variety and/or aesthetics IMO. Though I could understand about hand feel preferences.

I'd like to too, but I have been proven wrong too many times to think that way any longer.

Is no one going to comment on how Dynamic Discs may have dodged a bullet financially this year given the state of things. After all, if relatively little is happening professionally, it is nice to have less financial professional obligations.

My ethics may be different than others, but I am hard core about them.
Wait, because of the names? Seriously? How is the word, ethics, involved in this?

Not to mention a huge influx of their target market, new players

I like Trilogy, bag a lot of Latitude and Westside, okay with Dynamic just never clicked with any of their molds much. That being said, Danny Lindahl's voice grates on my nerves like a dentist's drill.

I like the moustache. It somehow distracts me from the rest of him.

I thought I was with a few Molds and turns out I was wrong with XL From Discraft in premium plastics that help the mold fly less like a Stalker, my current mold. The Shark 3, I thought for sure being it is a Shark mold barely modified to just be flat top, that the Champion Shark 3 was not going anywhere when I either loose or replace my Champion Shark 3 the mold will be replaced with the Lion in Champion, assuming that mold is still made. The Shark 3 is like a more OS Buzz but not so OS it is more then a Wasp the way the Buzz OS mold is.
