The Tyrant and AndroC are not produced by Gateway.

The Raptor and Ptero are also produced elsewhere.

Just stamped some up this week!

Ozone is prototyping the translucent blend so once that is approved, the Tyrant will hit the line.

Likely spring for that release

Can you describe the translucent blend? Not familiar with it at all

Are the Raptor, RPM Raptor? Who does the molding on the Tyrant and the Ptero?

Raptor and ptero are based on molds from daredevil. Tyrant is an original mold with molding help from ozone I believe

Correct.

The Tyrant was brought to life by our friends at Ozone Discs.

Thd Raptor is approved as the Velociraptor. It produced by Daredevil using their overstable driver mold.

We haven't even felt it yet.
But the goal is an Opto/Champion type feel.
Firm yet not hard. Grippy and tough as nails is what we are gunning for.

I also will require that it doesn't pop the top on the Tyrant. I want every run of that mold to be a flat top work horse.

As a rule I consider anything Gateway has touched garbage, so I'm thrilled to find out not all of the RDG discs are produced through them.

Are you going to run the Ptero, Tyrant or Velociraptor in champy type plastic at 165-169 weights?

The Scale and Serpent are far from garbage.
Many folks on DGCR consider Fossil plastic to be one of the best baseline blends to ever be produced.


Lower weights are difficult to achieve for a tiny brand like us just because our run quantities are very small compared to the larger brands.
I wouldn't rule them out but they're farther out than I'd hope in terms of completion.

Any idea on when the Stego might be back in stock? A buddy threw mine yesterday, and after he picked his jaw off the ground he immediately began thinking of uses for it. I wanted to get him one and pick up a backup, but in the last few days they've sold out on the Faction site.
