We’ll done Drew! Now I need to check his bag again to see what he’s throwing in the DD slot besides that Alabama destroyer. Looks like Wraith size rim.

Also in before “too many manufacturers”.

I’m partway through this interview where they have asked Drew every excruciating detail of the design and manufacturing process…. except who’s molding his discs. Second disc is already done, waiting on the top and bottom molds.

I think it might be EV-7. Cole Redalen commented on a Drew's first pic of the new disc saying he wanted to try it. Drew's response was "ask Phil". Isn't Phil the dude that started EV-7 after leaving Prodigy?

Teebird is 1.7cm rim. The Era is supposed to be 2.0cm, which is more like a 10 speed. So maybe like an Undertaker?

Finish Line? Isn't that a shoe and atheletic clothing store that is in every mall? I don't know why they would pick a name already used by another sports company. The font on the logo is even similar. I do hope that that it is a nice disc and Drew is succesful with this endeavor.

Received and threw one of these today and I'm definitely impressed. I'd say the flight numbers are pretty spot on, don't know if I would call it a fast fairway or a short distance driver though. Really effortless distance and line shaping. I'd compare it to a beat in Anax or a slower version of the Wraith.

I might bag it to fill the hole between my Anax and my Craves, need to test it some more though.
