... and I still end up using innova discs to describe others.. "Yea, it's sort of like a less HSS stable firebird..."

So, I fully admit: I am a fanboy of disc golf. Period.

People telling me to "throw Swedish" and that "Innova innovates, the rest imitate" are on par for me. There's nothing magical about Swedish plastic that warrants me buying something that had to ship from a factory 5,200 miles away, and it's a circular disc with 2 surfaces to modify. Innova makes a small tweak to one of those surfaces it's an innovation, for everyone else it's imitation? Bevel aside. That was innovative, but that is like me pointing out that any circular golf disc is imitating Wham-o. True, but immaterial.

To be fair, a lot of the early "Team Trilogy" guys were the worst.

Mainly due to their delusional belief that they became "sponsored" just by buying and throwing a certain manufacturer's plastic.
