I found Discraft though tournaments in the 2000's, something that Discraft has done well is Market its discs for tournaments. However I tried a few molds from Discraft that were not through tournaments like the Magnet simply due to how I liked the discs I got at tournaments.

I know that Dynamic Disc, Westside Disc, and Latitude 64 are the brands called a Trilogy but Innova's Dave D seems to make the same disc for a top level sponsored Pro that was made for another company like taking the Innova Disc the Aviar Big Bead and making a special player production soft version for Juliana Korvair just because she used the Super Soft Omega big bead and even had a signature on the Super Soft Omega Big Bead for a very short bit. Innova did this again with one of the Discmania putters for Nates Tour Disc, then renaming it including the plastic name that is close to what Discmania uses for a XT/Pro mix. Yeah the players have more choice over the tour series mold but maybe Innova encourage this mold to the point of almost choosing for Nate. Also do not forget the Lion was made as players were using a similar mold from Discmania, only the Discmania mold does not have the mini v wing. It just seems that Dave D is wanting for his top level Pro sponsored players to use Innova more then the other brands.
Translation: Paige Pierce is currently in negotiations with Discraft and the only sticking point is the font they're going to use on the flight numbers of her new signature disc -- The Wonky Lioness.

2 for 2 then it seems. What Nate are you talking about though? Perkins? Actually, nevermind. Let's get back to taco talk.

Everything you post is a dumpster fire of unreadable gibberish, confusing personal anecdotes and bad information.

I think those are his strong points - he's one of the few entertaining people left on DGCR.

I knew it - her own line of discs, not just sig line for ones that sell to make a few extra bucks.

Her quote, to me, confirms it - “[Discraft is] willing to do any and everything I want to do and they trust my vision,” said Pierce. “That’s something I haven’t had before: the trust and involvement.”
