I understand the Berg (best disc ever) and the Rask having quite mixed reviews with how unique they are, but I challenge anyone to throw either Gryms or either Kaxe and tell me they don't like the brand. The mold minimalists should love the tweener mids that can also take fairway duties.

Is it because they are a tick more expensive? Is it because they are not American? I am genuinely curious as I find they are the only company that really seems to have plastic blends a step better than the rest.
Yeah a little surprised there myself, if only cause they are still relatively unknown.
Granted, I'm a huge fan, the Kaxe, Berg, and Reko are 3 of the best discs I've ever thrown, and I think K1 and K3 are the best plastics available. I have beat the crap out of some K1 Kaxe and they hold up better overall than any other plastic I have.

I will say, the lack of consistency in the US distribution has been a big turn off over time.
Its tough to get things on a regular basis, and shops that do have them have like 6 total discs at times.

Vibram, because I love the feel and grip, but hate the mids and won't create an entire Vibram bag because of the crappy mids and don't want to mix plastic and rubber in the same bag.. Everything feels slippy after cranking a lace... Oh and the price, I don't like the fact that they don't have a dx price equivalent.

Reptilian Disc Golf? I've been playing for over 20 years and never heard of them.

My vote was for Prodigy. I remember hearing about their start-up issues (such as players using Prodigy stamped KC Aviars) online, etc, but figured that was just the woes of a new company trying to make a splash on the DG scene.

Then I moved about 15 minutes from their HQ. As a collective, they have the most elitist/hipster-esque attitude I've been around in disc golf. Most local DGers drool over them and want to be sponsored by them, but most everyone I've met that is actually connected to the brand has been a complete tool, with the exception of founder Phil Arthur, he's a nice guy.

Maybe my biggest complaint is that their baskets are awful, with the heavy, bulky chains that aren't friendly to most putting styles. Unfortunately in my area these baskets seem to be the choice for new courses.

Do they have the lime green baskets? I kinda agree that there's something off with those.

That's the ones. My regular group counts spit outs from these as a .5 stroke penalty when playing a casual round, because they're so prone to that. The lime green is invisible in the spring woods as well

We are forum nerds that built a brand with fellow DGCR nerds in mind

That said, I don't like us either so I'd vote for us too.

As a manufacturer, do you get to vote?
