With their model they can't change the game without a complete lineup of discs for their players and without selling those molds to help pay those players back who bought into the company. You aren't changing the game by having the top 10 players in the world on the same team. You change it by creating a business model that creates financial security for a professional disc golfer. You do this through disc sales and sponsorship.

So their idea of how to change the game may be different than yours. It's their company, let them run it the way they want.

If these tour players make more money through whatever Prodigy is allowing them to do then the game has been changed. Maybe not for you but certainly all the other touring players. Innova seems to be doing a lot more for their players these days..

I could care about touring players "ll" not sure what that distance is but it is very small. I think a number of them are cool guys, but how they do in a disc golf tournament means nothing to me. What I care about is how companies treat their CUSTOMERS. A pro picking through 100 discs and throwing 20 of them to see what is best means nothing. We have to pay 16.99 for a disc that may or may not be "similar" to one that we recently purchased. Then people push for trophy only tournaments so now you actually have to pay for that crap. Most of the DG companies STINK at quality and it is a shame that we let them get away with it.

I couldn't agree with you more when it comes to ALL the manufactures quality being overall poor and I can't stand when the fan boys pour out saying how one company is so bad. It's EVERY company that is bad.. If were buying discs at almost $20 we should expect them to be the same. Tons of things are made of plastic and stay he same through cycles why can't discs?

I think it's because discs require more precision than most other plastic items. High RPM's = exponential effects of tiny variations.

Spent some time with my M4 yesterday. Damn good disc! Give it a small hyzer and it's the straightest disc I've ever thrown. 300 of the straightest feet I've ever seen. Thrown flat is works a nice S with a little fade at the end. Kicked my Comet out of the bag after one day.
