Kinda noticed in the picture they used of Nate it looks like he is doing a spin putt that he normally uses his dart for. Maybe I'm reading into this a bit too much but asking one of the world's best putters to change discs is a huge task. I'm not convinced he's going to replace his p2s with the firefly.

Well he was able to make a kid so I guess he isn't too bad at it.

The real drawback of SexPro plastic is that it's really slick and if it starts vibrating in your plane luggage the TSA will pull you out for a bomb inspection.

Gives a whole new meaning to the term 'push putter'...

Did Innova get bought out by Google? That was my first thought when I read Nexus. Maybe something similar to DC's JB, or McBeth's new blend? A P2 clone that is readily available would sell like hotcakes. Really makes me wonder what DM's game changer on Thursday will be.

If the news is that Discmania is splitting ways with Innova and molding their own plastic in Colorado, the Firefly looking like the exact copy of a P2 makes sense.

Genuine answers: Prodigy's 300 plastic is pretty good, and was their baseline until the 200 plastic came out. Also, Trilogy's Classic/ZeroHard/BTHard is good, and it's their baseline to me. Origio/Prime came out later, and is not bad.

Discraft's Pro-D is very bad, IMHO. And Innova's DX has had a few decent runs at time, but a lot of waxy garbage at times, as well.

That's my thesis of what the big Discmania announcement on 2/14/2019 is. We'll see in a few days.
