So where are things at with the retool? Any changes other than removing the inserts? I recall weighting was going to be similar to that of the + mold.

Retooling is currently on hold and will resume on the 16th. We told our manufacturer to focus on the RDG tyrant and our new Hydro M plastic blend before they went on vacation for Chinese New Year. We are really happy with the progress they made on both fronts. You are the first to try the blend outside of us and RDG . The only other change we are making is the rim. We are going for a smoother and more comfortable release on the Andros.

I dig the plastic, and personally am excited to hear about the rim change. Thanks for the info.

I think I may miss the disc whistling though...

It was a neat effect. Well need to recreate it one day. Add a small groove on the disc and we can market it as more safe because you can hear it coming

I cannot wait for the new Andro release.
Geo saw first hand today how nice they fly for me.

I can gun them, get a comfortable right drift and then a reliable bite back. Perfect for swinging out over OB and knowing it will come back in safely.

Or get the little whistles from the nerf foot balls. Make her really scream.

Now that we are a few weeks into sales, we have begun to get feedback that the inserts are not sticking as well to the plastic and due to slightly different sizes of rings/and or discs there are some air gaps where the inserts do not sit flush against the mold.

We are extremely happy with the flight of the discs and we know there is a future in our insert technology but the inserts can not be exposed. We are going to fix our manufacturing to have the inserts be embedded inside the plastic. In the short term we are going to create a conventional Andro with no inserts and anyone who ordered a current Andro will receive a conventional Andro free. We appreciate you guys trying our technology and we are excited for what the future holds. Thanks for your support we will continue to keep you updated on our progress with the updates to the mold.
So question... Does the insert not fitting properly have a noticeable effect on flight? I went ahead and ordered a + and - from RDG because I want to support the Craft Disc Faction and I really like Speed 6 discs. I know the inserts whistle when they're loose but haven't heard if they make a big difference in the flight. Either way I'm excited to try them and if I like the initial flight I'll definitely pick up some of the one-piecers.

I haven't noticed any great different I would attribute to the inserts, just to the wear.

We haven't really heard of any large difference based on the whistle. Its very small air gaps that are causing the noise and from testing they don't seem to have a large impact on overall flight. Thanks for picking up a few from RDG and supporting the faction! The Tyrant and Andro C (One Piece) molds should be completed shortly and are going to be great additions to the line up. Element has just come out with some proto mid-ranges as well so we are starting to build a complete line-up which is really exciting.
