Wasn't the Lycan just a top and bottom piece they already had?

Probably. That's the case for a lot of Innova discs.

Hah, mutant discs. Innova really seems to like to use the Archon/Vulcan/Teedevil top these days too. I keep seeing drivers with that look.

That's what I was saying... if it sells well, they'll get a new mold. If not, they might decide to go OOP. And yea, it's a sales and marketing decision...

Correct, I just wish making a new mold didn’t sometimes ruin the disc. When the San Marino stingray mold broke multiple discs changed for the worse. Good ol sanny sentinels, stingrays and qms were money if they could reproduce those I would buy huge stacks of each!

Bump. A lot of the sponsored folks seemed to be liking this disc. Anybody got a take on how they fly/season?

I got a guy at work that keeps asking me to try to find him one of these in gold line. He says he's had one already but all I see anywhere is opto. Do gold lines exist?

Just watched Bobbys Dynamic Discs blog form Finland and Paige Pierce got 4 Ballista Pro as her signature Disc. . .Paige is a DD player with a all DD bag. . strange to give her a signature Lat64 disc


Sure Trilogi has all Three brands but if you are a DD player should´nt your signature disc be DD?

PP does have at least one DD sig disc. They might be trying to cash in on her popularity in Europe...
