From being on the last card of a tournament following the top card, and his interactions with us. They where playing slow and we were a threesome playing fast. One of the nicest people you will ever meet.

Amongst other time we have spoke on the course.

To me, it very clearly echoes what Dickerson's comments were when writing about what Discraft was bringing to the table for him. What he said was pretty clearly stating "This is what I asked for from Prodigy, and they did not provide".

I'll try and find the post his Instagram and put it in this reply

DGA has pretty much zero traction around here as far as disc sales. I don't really see that changing.

In the FWIW department, I own two of their molds, and never knew DGA made them (Blowfly, Gumbputt). Those are also the only discs from DGA I have heard of. Only been back playing 4-5 years now, but still...I mean I knew who Marwede and Bell were.

Both DGA and Legacy seem to be somewhat confined to the West Coast. Despite both making some fabulous discs, you don't see a ton of them in retail stores here. Not sure that it matters with the online market, really. I'd be curious about the profit split for DGA baskets versus discs, personally. Mach X is still tops in my book, though not 2x as good as a T2 like the price is.

When I posted that question, I was afraid it might come across wrong. I appreciate your reply.

I have not had the fortune to meet any pros so all I have is youtube--from that I tend to reserve any judgement about who these people are IRL.

Mach VII better than Mach X and T2.

I disagree... it's plastic made by the hottest manufacturer in the game....and if they have pros winning and constantly on coverage, it will boost them big time.

Hell, even Dickerson is going to be throwing the Quake.

I bet if Cat is killing it and Marwede continues his growth.....DGA doubles their business.

From 100ppl buying their discs....to 200ppl.

WINNING!

I kid I kid... everyone should bag a Quake tho.

What if Uggs offered you a pro-model boot? Like with the fur and everything
