Somehow when I posted this earlier I failed to see that they were ESP. Looks like I'll have to track one down, hopefully around what I'd pay for a POTY or less.

Paige's are super sweet and swirly. You ones you'll be able to order will be forest floor colored swirls. If you're lucky. Discrafts swirl game is weak as a frog doing pull ups. Paige, Paul and Brodie get the couple that turn out good.

It΄s a stange time. . it΄s hard to even get certain discs. .and to get the good looking ones are VERY hard

The shop i use here in Sweden just got 350pc of HADES, maybe 25 of those was the very good looking Swirly ones. . the rest was kind of plain looking.

all 350 sold out but it was a hard fight for the nice ones. . i got one this time

On the discraft FB pages so far I think I've only seen 1 that was tan/forest floor colored, all the other ones have looked super bright so far. IDK how people were receiving theirs on Sunday, I ordered within the first 10 minutes of them dropping and live 2 hours from the factory, mine will show up today.

Jolt, I missed that you were in Sweden at first, I was going to say, during the beginning of the corona pandemic it was pretty tough to get anything from Innova or Discraft at the local shop, but the last 2 months or so has been easy unless you're going after the usual LE stuff that sells out in 3 minutes. Our shop got Hades in last Friday and when I was there on Tuesday there were still a ton of swirly bright pink/purple/yellow ones.

do we live on the same planet even? Discraft swirls are way better than anything else that's being put out (and a premium isn't being charged for 'halo' or whatever that they do all the time on normal runs)

Not all of them, some have poor color choice though not as bad as Star in the Player runs. What Dynamic disc had was a burst plastic, not a swirl so it you used only Dynmic discs/ Latitude 64 trilogy and not aware of other discs before switching brands, then yeah there is a reason why you are not liking the others.

The Jawbreaker as of 2020 has looked really good despite the discs being softer then run from 2017 I had before, they have more of the actual big $1 Jawbreaker from the big machine type look to the disc.

I happened to open instagram and have paige's post about them show up as the first thing I saw, 15 min after they launched. I snagged one for my wife's birthday, so she'll have the cryztal/stock run/esp setup. This one will likely wind up a wall hanger though, at least for a while. We've got a one year old and between that and work we don't get out to play as often as we used to, so she likely won't want to be throwing really limited run plastic when she's only playing once every 6 weeks or so. Regardless, this is the one that arrived today! I tried to take two shots that highlighted the brightness and the little fine swirls, cause lighting in my house sucks and I couldn't capture both at once. Super swirly, super stiff, feels a lot like my 2019 TS Zone.

Same planet, same country, same state, same time zone, same everything.

My opinion differs from yours. Super.

You got what I was sayin?. Clearly not.

I apalogize.

Keep pushing your impossible to find putters to next to no one. Throw a Wizard or Aviar and call it a day lol.

1) I think I might be the only one that doesn't like the swirly discs. Give me a nice single color with a bar stamp and I'm good.

2) It is a sweet looking stamp, but 991 seems kind of weird for a milestone, no?

Originally I thought the 991 was because she was now the highest rated FPO player ever, but doing a little googling, looks like she's had that locked down since 978 back in 2018. I do at least like that the stamp isn't just the players last name in huge block letters across the middle. This years TS discs have been some of my least favorite I've seen in my short time playing.

This isn't the first time discraft has done an odd number though right? didn't they do a 1059 disc for McBeth and then immediately follow it up with a 1060?
