That bag is super old school, I got one back in 2012. It's a tank and still in great shape today!

Sometimes I feel like I'm playing an entirely different game than everyone else and just haven't noticed.
A few years ago when all the new companies started to appear, I used to joke on the tee that "I gotta try one of those new Legacy Trilogy Prodigys". I still only throw Innova and Discraft.

Lol- be relatable and grow the sport? Spread the money around? Innova has the market share now. But without notable players, it is possible for them to be perceived by the next 100,000 PDGA members as the Walmart and Dick’s brand. Discraft has McBeast and PP, so they’re gtg for a while.

Sheesh. Since when is something from 2012 “super old school”?

You kids are making me feel old.

Interesting take.

Looking at it in terms of possible sales projections as newer players inevitably become a larger % of the potential customer base, and long time players become a smaller % of the potential customer base.

I think Innova will always have a lot of the "new player" market exactly because they are in stock at the Big Box stores. I didn't know any other brands existed back in my youth since all the local Dick's had was Innova.

(I also mostly bought high speed drivers that faded hard and left, but that's a different discussion...)

Lately, I've seen Trilogy getting stocked at Dick's also. But Innova still has most of the market there, so most casual players who know nothing about the professional scene will continue to use Innova/Trilogy since that's what they can find at their local Big Box.

I wondered how much $1.000.000 a year is. . so i made a silly count.

Richard Wysocki played 24 tpurnament in 2021 and in those he threw a total of 4197 throws

$1.000.000 devided by 4197 is $238 for every throw he made in 2021...

Perhaps add the number of practice putts and throws he probably made?
