Dude, just go buy some stock runs then... It's honestly not that much more if you consider you're supporting your favourite players and such. Plus, I'll happily pay a premium for a sick stamp, swirly, or colour.
Disc Golf is pretty cheap compared to other sports.

InfiniteDisc has done the same, the 4x Zone 13.99 and the 5X is 18.99. Can't image all the resellers are doing the money grab. This percentage of increase is worse than the brick and mortars. I stopped at 3 more PIA's on my way back home tonight and they have different ownership but the pricing structure was the same.

MarshallStreet had Proto Lunas for 15.99 and I got 5 a month after it launched. They may have started at 19.99 but when I went shopping the price was 15.99.

As for pricing, Discraft has always been a bit higher for what they charge resellers. I have a buddy who owns a large store in Florida and we were just going over manufacturer numbers last month. I will call him in the morning and as if there was an increase for Paige's and Paul's new discs.

And I don't know where you shopped, but proto Lunas, first run Lunas and stock-run Lunas have consistently retailed at $19.99 since they debuted (again, wholesale price hasn't changed). So the Fierce being priced similarly is no surprise at all.

But hey, rant on.

Money may not be your problem, but being a Hater is.

I could see buying a PP putter just because I want to support women’s dg and especially Paige.

But I throw almost all base plastic, which kind of dictates my brand. Innova is the only brand that has much selection in base plastic. And I can’t get premium plastic to break in like ever. It just never breaks in for me. So I guess I’m Innova for life. Yay.

It's 19.99 @ the Discraft store. I buy discs from 15-20.00 all the time. No big deal, they last for years....

I'm a retailer myself (have been for 15+ years). I am telling you, there has been NO increase in price on these discs from Discraft's side. Wholesale price on the proto Lunas was $10. Wholesale price on everything Paul McBeth (Luna, Zeus, Anax, 4x stamps, 5x stamps) has been $10 from the start. Wholesale price on the proto Fierce is $10. MSRP is and has always been $19.99 for all those discs. Nothing has changed from their end. Price variance is entirely on the retail side.

Anybody know what one of those ridiculous 4x claw buzzzes are going for? I bought one with trade in credit so I can flip to some McFanboy.

Depends on what it looks like honestly. Blacks are the most sought after.
