This makes me worried about just discovering the Flow. I've never seen anyone else throw one. It's a really good complement to the typically more neutral Trespass, pretty true stable with a reliable fade that isn't dumpy and it resists wind well for being in that stability range with a ton of glide. Only downside is that it's extremely domey. Sample size of one but everything I've seen about it says similar things.

I bet lots of the older Lat molds will get the cut since I don't see any hype for them. Especially since they get to make all the Trilogy discs as well as some Discmania stuff.

Nothing personal to mizunodave in these comments; just quoted him for context.

What I don't understand is why they're stringing this out. Of course, they did that with the DD anouncment: said they were going to do it, then had a contest about which ones they'd take OOP. Now they're following the same (garbage) with Lat64, and ultimately Westside.

And to delay the Westside announcement for months flies in the face of any economic reasons for making these 'retirements'. Why wait for months? Why drag this out like this? All Trilogy is doing is making me look elsewhere for discs; they're certainly not creating any kind of artificial enthusiasm for their soon-to-be-OOP discs...

Sheesh.

It’s got to be in something to do with the joint ownership, there is no other reason to drag it out so long. DD must have had their numbers ready to go and made the call, maybe Lat64 has to balance US sales against Europe and balance it that way? Could take some more time I guess, and it’s certainly possible that Discs like the Scythe that never took off in the US are top sellers in Sweden... maybe?

For Westside they have to work together and agree on what to do, but it seems like there are three main categories for their product; well known and loved discs(Harp, shield, Bard) good discs that have a smaller following(Stag, Ahti, War Horse) and things no one throws pretty much ever(seer, sling, Sampo).

Added to my Swan flock and Stag herd today with a BT Soft burst Swan and an oddly swirly VIP gold Stag. Looking forward to bagging a few more and sadly it’s time to take out my most beat old RTP Stag...

Hey, I resent that! Not really. I bag a Seer but I could easily replace it with a Leopard or something. I thought I read somewhere though that the Seer is actually a decent seller for them.

I wonder if they ONLY look at sales and drops the one that sells the least. . . it΄s just odd that DD dropped ALL their OS putters

You should be safe. Warship seems like a really popular mold, especially overseas.

That's how DD did it. They drew a line based on sales. Above the line stayed, below the line cut.
