I'm interested in the disc. But the fact that Double G can throw it a long way says about as much as "Usain Bolt runs fast while holding it"!

Gilbert aka Bamba Rico and Steve Rico own Legacy discs. I also watched Steve Rico Bomb it, but with Garrett Gurthie mashing it as far as he did it was impressive. They spent 3 and a half months tweeking the mold and experimenting with it to get it right. Slight tweeks here and there with rim width, rim depth, thickness of flight plates and plastics. I will ask for the dimensions. There was around 15 pros this past weekend at the summertime in Sylmar who mashed the proto type to give there opinion on the mold. There was probably a handful of guys in the top 20 in the world there throwing it.

Private company presses the disc and I am not at liberty to say who does the actual pressing right now. Its not one of the major disc companies as some might think. If they want that info released I'm sure it will come out soon.

I was throwing anhyzers around 430, but when they become softer I should be able to get these into the 500 foot range without trying to throw the anhyzer shot. Alot of people told me they didnt like the shallow rim and this thing isnt shallow. Also I think it will fly simular to a destroyer, but with more distance and alot faster. The mold is perfect, just some tweeking with the plastics over the next week and it will be off for approval. This company will next release a putter very simular to a magnet in my opinion. I threw a proto that was 175g and 181g. Of course the 181g wasnt legal but it was in a opto type plastic and the 175g felt like a special blend type plastic that was red. I believe good things will come from these and I would be surprised to see alot of us on here trying these bad boys out. Its a scary design and disc because it has alot of distance potential.
like a magnet? HA! nothing will ever beat the magnet...


I admit defeat... I want one.

It makes sense they're making a magnet-esque putter with Steve Rico's deep love for the disc. I have high hopes for their discs with the involvement of some great members of the Disc Golf community.
