I completely agree. This is the problem with Flight Numbers that don't match up or are different for different companies. In this case, I think the Thief would be a great fairway driver for lots of people, but it came out too long ago and the marketing from DD for new discs just wasn't where it is now. If the Thief was just released today and marketed as some like the FD or Leopard/3, I think it would be significantly more popular. But that ship sailed.

Agree that the Burst discs are ugly , and I also don't like their ploy. And that's why I refuse to buy any Burst discs.

I don't know where you buy your discs, but DGC and Infinite charge the same for GL and GL Burst discs.

I do find it interesting that both Discraft and MVP are making Bursts now as well.

DC seems to have two extremes on their burst game.
Gorgeous, and looks like vomit.

Dgc and Infinite charge 15.99 while regular GL on dgc was 13.99 I believe.....14.99 at infinite plus tax and handling. I stick to DGC due to the discount and no shipping/handling.

Ugh....the Burst is spreading? This sucks.

You are right. 15.99 at dgc and .14.99 at infinite plus tax and handling. I stick to DGC due to the discount and no shipping/handling.
