Isn't telling engineers what the disc should be part of designing the mold?

I'm an application developer at a bank. I wouldn't build a loan processing system without the people who need it telling me what it should be. That planning is the hardest part of the process. Having someone who knows exactly what is needed is invaluable. And rare.

Mold design is a very very complex and difficult process. People who do it for a living still always miss things and struggle at times to do it right. I build injection molds, trust me. The thought that some random joe could do it is both laughable and insulting to those who actually do it . Having a bit of input is one thing, but to call that "design" is wrong. At best you're an advisor.

Well I mean the Ion is basically a fancy Wizard clone.

I would love to hear a statistician opine on how many archers would need to switch arrows before the results would be statistically significant.

My experience working with statisticians tells me that they would want a LOT of data. Certainly more than one player. Randomly assigned arrows, double-blind discs, etc.

Would be fun to watch . . .

He is buying those baskets right from the course? Is the Course getting new baskets?

Toboggan is a temp course and iirc, Discraft brought those baskets to the event last year.
