I feel like the only one of those anybody will be sad about is the Gobi...but it's a favorite of AJ Risley so...

The lat overmolds were the worst Trilogy discs I ever used.

Lat64...'Besides that, the overmold technology presented us with inconsistency problems'.

MVP and Axiom's future?
I found an MVP Tesla and saw the overmold outer rim did not fit flush with the flight plate (upper or lower). That would obviously create wind drag. It had a really awful OS flight pattern. If I didn't play disc golf I might think this was a pool toy or something for a dog to chew on.

Lat64’s overmolds were just cosmetic. They didn’t “effect the flight” because they were just two existing plastics adhered with no other changes. MVP uses overmolds for weight distribution. How much that effects flight is up for debate but I do think it does. In terms of consistency, I still think mvp is one of the most consistent manufacturers, but they have been letting a few more discs slip through the cracks as they’ve gotten bigger.

Sorry for the rant but as soon as I read Lat64’s statement about why the cancelled their overmolds I knew a parallel would be drawn.

Makes sense to retire those molds.

Doesn't makes sense, business-wise, to drag out this announcement process.

More like "We're taking molds OOP, but we won't tell you which ones so you'll panic and buy discs you're afraid of going OOP... and also having contests guessing which discs we take OOP to keep you interested and enhance our social media 'likes' (and revenues)."

Probably more like, "OOP discs sell pretty well for a short time. We'll spread out the announcements, knowing that most people can only spend just so much on plastic each month. So, spread out the announcements just enough in the hope that folks will be more inclined to impulsively burn more money again."

Nothing in the trilogy cuts has hurt me yet, but so help me if they cut the Stag. I’ve expressed similar emotions before, but if they do that I might quite literally drive to Emporia, say mean things to Ruscoe(play all of those courses we see at GBO) and drive home.

Here's a little data that should make the predictions a little easier: https://infinitediscs.com/blog/latit...-2019-edition/

After reading this my Mauls feel safer and my Culverins feel less safe. That's okay though as I think there are more discs like the Culverin(Getaway,Thunderbird,... Etc). Not sure that I could replace a Maul so easily.
