It has never been very difficult to buy Sexton Firebirds. I have gotten some each year since 2015, and I never needed to make all that great of an effort to do so. I just visited the Innova Factory Store website on occasion, until I saw they had hundreds in stock. Then I bought some. They sell fast when the runs first come out, but are easy to acquire toward the end of each season. If someone wants to get one this year, wait for the rush to die down later this season, and get all you want at your leisure.


If someone expresses frustration in four years that they cannot get cheap 2019 Sexton Firebirds, I'll think, "Just get one from the Factory Store. They're only $19.99 each. Oh, but wait, you have waited four years to finally decide that you now want one!"

It is a simple math: if you want 2019 Sexton Firebirds, buy them this year. Or wait until next year and pay needlessly expensive prices.

$10-15 might be real money to somebody. I'd certainly make the effort to pick up a 10 spot if I saw one laying on the sidewalk.

? 10-15 IS real money --- im saying its not cool to hoard these discs and upcharge people that $ - I don't want to pay 15$ extra for a disc - that IS significant.

I know the seller is thinking making $10 a piece and I get that but its not really cool to do it - IE: I buy out a theater for the premier of a new bullshhitt superhero movie and I charge people 2x the ticket price just to be a dick ----- I guess im done with it - just don't like that when I try to get new **** and im ordering online minutes after they go live that like, all of them are gone and its not a bunch of people getting a few each, its like douchers getting 20+ of them for the sole purpose to FLIP them. and that (which will take me to my original statement) is a dick move.

Its smart buisness to limit production on high demand discs. It will guarantee the next years run sells.

Also, whats the difference between a guy at home buying 30 sextons and selling them for more AND the companies you buy discs from?

Disc Company X gets 100 sextons firebirds for 12$ a piece....sells for 20$(plus shipping)...i buy them for 20$, hold for a year and sell for 30$.

Im the bad guy? Ok then
Retailers don’t get a wholesale discount on Sexton firebirds, and maybe all tour series discs if I remember correctly. Unless they mark them up they do not make huge profit on them. They are trying to build a customer base, and build their brand selling these.

Thomas, I don't get the anger. They are just slabs of plastic, most of which are really not all that unique, except in the minds of those that throw em, or buy and sell em. Take away my 5 favorite molds, and I'd still have a ball playing disc golf.

As far as the artwork this year is the sweetest yet. With 2016 a close second. This is the first firebird with feathers and flames. Awesome

You aren't kidding. I swear, discs appreciate faster than precious metals.

Flies the same. Doesn't feel the same in the hand. At least my DB2 doesn't.
