Well, I hope Discmania learned their lesson. They could have made much more money by raising the price; obviously the clearing price was much higher than what they had set.

Eagle said there won’t be a restock until Septemberish. I got one to throw but now I will probably have to sell it. Can’t pass up a $30 profit if that’s what they keep selling for.

I wasn't in the market for one of these, but I really hate seeing this business model coming to disc golf. Honestly makes me want to drop Discmania altogether.

Its getting hard to argue since it is so easy to prevent people from buying bunches of the just to resell.

Limit 2 per customer. Boom problem solved.

That doesn't necessarily solve the problem, it just makes it harder to do. Multiple devices would still let it go through probably. Would have to do something like Limit 2 per mailing address instead.

I’m throwing mine (168g) and did a few times today
It will ultimately (maybe?) be my go-to once it beats in just a touch - it’s a bit longer than a Fuzion Trespass (which is my current BH main distance driver - 330ish flat ground and sea level) for me when I get both cheeks into it

YMMV

I believe discs need to be thrown so I am throwing mine no matter the price. Also I hate seeing this large mark up resell market becoming more prevalent with limited releases, but if you have the money i guess why not. I'm also a lower key sneaker head so this stuff never surprises me. Just look up the price on the Off White Jordan 1 Chicago... That stuff is ridiculous.

It's mind blowing that companies will make things in such a limited number that they sell out immediately. Why wouldn't you double the amount you make, and double your profit?

It's not linear. Sometimes less overall products will actually sell more. There is both an art and a science to know how many and how much to sell for that will move the most products.

It appears that Discmania made the error in the price point instead of the production number. The discs would have cleared at a higher price.

Thats one of the growing pains when you have somebody else manufacturing your discs. Theyve said previously that production runs are often scheduled months in advance. So between trying to estimate demand but also not using all of your production time on one specific product Id guess its not as easy as youd expect.
