I guess most of this discussion around price is on the special 5X Luna. It's a limited edition, of course it's going to be more.

I did just order a new Malta. They were reasonably priced at $17.99, and plentiful on Infinite Discs. Maybe they cost a little more than normal, but nothing outrageous.

Seems like people are quick to accuse Discraft of price gouging just for one very limited run (well, maybe for the higher price on base plastic Luna also... that might be a reasonable accusation).

No hate, just annoyed with the overblown hype and kinda turned to shixt with the price escalation. Reminds me of DD fanboys, Discmaniacs and Gyronaughts.

My bag is very mixed but I've never strayed from Discraft mids.

But most brands do this..Discmania and Innovas team players and limited ed. Discs Are just as expensive

Probably no coincidence that Paul, Simon and Eagles ( sounds like band names hehe ) disc are among the most expensive

Carry on, Jolt. Paul appreciates your support. How many Maltas are you going to purchase?

And I don't own any Simon, Eagle or Paul discs, except for one proto Luna because I was curious about the plastic.

Don't buy them. Plenty of low priced, regular production runs. If you're straying from normal production Discraft mids, which are readily available, and that have nothing to do with your perceived "overblown hype" and "price excalation", the only non-"antifanboi"-fanboy reason is because you like other molds more.

And if that's the case, that's a "I don't know what's good" reason.
