If one of Discraft's new releases is an OS speed 9 then I'm interested. I really like the FD3 but I'm not married to it.

Nah DC wasn't aware.
I did this in 2015.

Just extremely frustrating that they are able to use Raptor when Velociraptor is in use.



Coming soon.. The RDG BUZZZER

I'd like to solidify my distance driver lineup in 2019. Right now I'm tinkering way too much.

As far as trying molds that are new to me-- Rival, Stag and Comet are some intriguing discs that I've never thrown.

From the DC threads, apparently the Raptor is. When I first read that, I knew something was really weird. Even weirder is that DC's Raptor is closer to the Tyrant in dimensions then the Raptor.

A few years ago I had the RDG Velociraptor PDGA approved. I HAD to use this name because they told me that "Rapter" was used already by DG Aerotera. I emailed Aerotera and got permission to correctly spell and use Raptor. Homburg told me No so I changed it to Velociraptor.

Now DC has a Raptor approved.

Funny how the big companies can do as they wish..............

So needless to say I will never support the PDGA again. Pretty salty against DC as well.
So your next putter will be called the Challey?

Pretty shady and disappointing, to say the least. Out of curiousity, how much blame does DC have in this ordeal? Not defending DC, but the PDGA seems to the one to share more of the blame.

I don't have anything in particular in mind but I'm improving my forehand enough that it's making everything from putters up to Heat, Insanity, etc type drivers more intriguing. I used to just flick Eagles, Volts, PD types for mostly everything.

Yeah the PDGA is to blame here. DC is just the one who got the good name.

On FB someone said they "paid" Aerotera or whatever for the name. I still have the email from them back in 2015 in which Aerotera said I could use the name and they basically encouraged us because we were a fellow small company.

Enough of my public complaining....


Im excited for 2019 so I can continue my love affair with the Thunderbird. The greatest driver to be released in the last decade.
