It may drive the "hype" for the kiddos, but I just want to have the option to buy more when needed instead of having to stockpile for the impending drought. /rant
Probably name overlap issue with Innova molds: Cro and Lion.

I think those initial runs of the Active lines were meant to be a test of demand. The Instinct is still in stock and they probably had more demand for it than the active lines combined.

My first guess is that "Guardian Lion" was close enough to the Innova "Lion" that Innova complained. Dunno if the 'Crow" was the same issue, or if they just wanted a more positive name, as some famous author once wrote badly of the crow...

You're not being salty at all. The FD is a great disc, but I gave up bagging it precisely because I could not get them when I wanted/needed. And that was getting them at all; never mind the plastic, weight, and color I wanted. And ditto that for the putters.

Anybody else think that the evolution looks like it might just be a retooled DD Fugitive. Looks pretty similar to me.

Every time I've tried and liked a Discmania disc I couldn't find a backup for and eventually just stopped throwing it. I liked the FD and the TD and one of the mids (MD2 maybe?) but couldn't find backups when I was looking for them and ended up just forgetting about them.
