If you like the Evidence, I would suggest looking on Ebay or the like for some cheap castoffs. I looked at Infinite's list of best selling Dynamic molds (list is about 25 I think) and the Evidence is not listed. I would place a strong wager on any of those 6 or 7 that are not listed are going on the OOP list.
Same thing for me when the Hornet was taken OOP. I bought more, and expect my stash to be enough for the rest of my DG playing career. I'm also concerned about the Marshal being taken out, but I have a stash of them, too.

It's possible, of course, but the sense I got from the blog post was that they're thinning the herd because (they think) they have too many molds. So they announce a big OOP, people panic and stock up on their favorites and deplete the inventory, and they drive on and eventually create new molds. Rinse, repeat in a few years.

Only Innova seems to keep churning out almost every mold they've ever made, when they're the ones that probably really need to thin their herd... or at least stop inundating us with higher and higher speed drivers...

I won’t miss any of these molds, but I was very disappointed when I heard they were no longer offering Elasto plastic. Grippy, durable, and more stable than their other offerings. An Underworld or Hatchet in Elasto were, for me, as good as it gets.

I used the King and Giant in Elasto... still have a few but wish I’d bought a couple more. It was really good stuff.

I thought about searching for the remaining Elasto/Fluid/Frostline discs, but I have instead decided to start throwing Discraft’s ESP and Innova’s Pro as they have made a commitment to these plastics and offer them in many molds.

All these discs going OOP will make room to bring back the Trident....

I believe Eric Oakley is going to be fielding hours of Q&A to help people fine tune their bags. It's gonna feel like October 29th, 1929 in Emporia.

What was the Freedom hyped as? One of those discs that average DG'ers could throw 500'?

I know when the Spectra came out people were saying the same thing. I never liked that damn disc either. Flippy and fairly glideless.

I've probably touched 450' with a Freedom before, but it literally takes a PERFECT line to do so. If you miss your shot by the tiniest iota the disc will fade short or dive right into the ground.
