Back in the 2000's lots of people Used a Lighting disc or two due to the fact they were also a Plains state now not so much since the brand is OOP they think the discs when a mold sells out of discs on GGGT that mold will be gone forever. Now The Swedish Trilogy and the MVP trilogy are becoming the most popular. Fewer and fewer players use Discraft due to Dynamic Discs but a number in my area still use Innova molds and Millennium, well mostly the Hyzerbomb discs due to those discs being the only thing one can buy in my area for actual discs. The least popular mold that people use is in my area is the #2 Upshotor U-2 as I am the only one who uses the mold, though you see others using the Colt or the MVP/Axiom disc similar to the U-2 quite regularly. A few have started using the Bullfrog a similar flight to the Judge only due to the fact the disc is available right away to buy.
Casey stumbled upon the answer, because they were available.

I’m biased and think there good throwers. I like that they’re lower profile than the ions and wizards before them. BT Hard and Med change like every other manufacturer but the quality remains high across the runs keeping old faithfuls happy while attracting newbs who tend to buy the most plastic.

I applaud you for making it to the end of one of Casey's posts.

I putt Judges. I could switch to a PA3 comfortably. They are both shallow, straight beaded putters. They feel good in the hand cuz their shape, IMO, not as rounded as a wizard. I can’t seem to throw them. Still too deep for that, I think.

I think they grew in popularity and DD capitalized by offering them in different plastics, stamps, etc. And now they maintain that (with the statistical evidence provided by Infinite; none of the anecdotal “they aren’t popular in my back yard” stuff).

Is what it is, I guess. There are a lot of disc golfer that, believe it or not, aren’t on DGCR, so it’s hard to say with any certainty!

They are similar, just as the Wizard is similar to the Big Bead or PA3, Clozer, or

My point is that without Innova, DG wouldn't be where we are today.
And DGA to bring the modern basket. Otherwise we might be using various tone pole styles as the target to hole out from the manufactures.

I can see why the Judge is or was popular from your post, they came in multiple consistent plastic, something with the Wizard it is hard to find. Then with Discraft having the Focus (a Discraft Wizard like Disc) in only a Soft X and the Pro D for the longest time before Jawbreaker came out, did not and still might not offer enough plastic types to satisfy players and fact the Focus was a bit more neutral then a Wizard compared to a Judge. This is also why the Ion is not popular the limited plastic types for the disc, but among MVP/Axiom players that want a Wizard like disc, they are popular.

The judge is a great do it all putter across their plastic lines. I could easily fill all my putting needs with a classic (putting), beat classic (stable/understable throwing) and lucid/deco for stable throwing. I ultimately switched to a warden for my putting putters as I prefer beadless but I can still putt with my classic judge if need be just fine. My classic judge is nicely beat in and flies dead nuts straight for me out to 250 on less than full power. Full power and it gives me a nice understable flight without turning and burning.

I also bag a decodye marshall for my more stable throwing putter duties. Played a tight wooded course a few weeks ago and the marshall and judge were awesome on the level or slightly down hill tunnel shots.
