I truly believe the big deal is emerging markets in Europe and China/Asia and having a manufacturer in those regions, rather than a business move to try and make more money off the existing fanbase.

I would think as far as sponsorship goes, SHOULD they so choose, any of the 3 lines would be treated as Discmania is now. But not that it expands into Lat64 or Yikun proper. Even so, I dont think it is automatic that ANY Innova player has DM option in their contract, and also think that currently and going into the future, the contracts would become more restrictive than in the past.

This is my interpretation as well.

Imagine Dave allowing Opto beads to taint his factory

EDIT: To be clear (pun intended) I prefer Opto to Champ...

Judging by the numbers Id say these are either modified or possibly just base versions of these below Yikun discs;

Claws- Gaurdian Lion
Yao - Spring Ox
View- Fox Spirit
GAO- Sun Crow
Jun- Sea Serpent

If Im right and the Spring Ox is a baseline Yao, Im excited. I used the baseline Yao when Yikun made it the Cell for Salinet and it was a great mid for me. And if the Gairdian Lion is a take on the Claws, thats a really good lid.

How good is Yikun's baseline plastic?

Jun was the Salient Naplam. It reminded me of a Beast L.

View was the Salient Flatline.

Its okay, its somewhat similar to Bt Soft in that it warps really easily but retains its flight pretty well. Some people love it and others think its terrible. I think for mids and putters its good, dont like it for drivers.

It seems that most Innova players can throw any disc that has Innova tooling. So no, Ricky won't be able to throw the Harp as it is produced by Lat 64.

Unless this is a new thing in their contracts, you're wrong. Eagle has been throwing a Glowchamp gator and a MF Max for awhile...
