Default Ozone Discs (Andro One)

We are close to 50% of our goal on kickstarter for a new disc idea my brother and I are trying to create. The preliminary name is the Stratos One. Our first disc we are targeting a long midrange/ control fairway driver somewhere in the range of 6 3 -1 2 depending on the configuration. Please take a look at the kickstarter link below and tell us what you think.

Here is a picture of the Disc

Is that an over-over-over-overmold? Quadruple overmold?

Seriously though, I watched the video and read the literature, I see that it uses inserts, which are intended to be interchangeable. Cool concept but my big worry would be that upon striking an object at velocity, the inserts could pop out, probably not an issue since the inserts are "bonded" per PDGA requirement.

That low glide number concerns me. Also, "Stratos" might be too close to "Stratus" for Discraft's comfort.

So the whole draw of this is the interchangeability on the fly, but the PDGA has said they won't approve anything like that, so the discs will be for recreation only. It seems to me that most recreational players don't care or know much about disc types, and probably aren't shopping for discs online and browsing disc golf forums. Not trying to be a total Debbie downer, but I don't get the point of making these discs, if only a small portion of players would want to throw them just for fun, yet probably would never even knew they existed.

Not true. The "inserts" are permanent. There are two configurations of the same mold, allowing you to throw two discs that feel exactly the same but cover two very different lines, not one disc with different inserts.

Exactly. We were trying to allow players to get two different flight paths from the same mold similar to having a weathered version of your favorite disc right out of the box with the same weight, feel, plastic etc....

We are going for a premium plastic feel for the first few runs. Similar to Innova Star plastic, Prodigy 400, Legacy Icon, Prodiscus Ultrium etc... We went through a lot of test blends and we think we have gotten a really grippy durable feel that we like. It has also proven to be extremely durable through our test rounds. We are looking forward to peoples feedback from the kickstarter run to see if there are any tweaks to be made to best fit what players are looking for.
