So they are making all new molds?

Am I right in assuming that the deal you have going with Lat64 and Yikun is pretty 1:1 as the one you have with Innova. I.e. their plastics, their mold pieces, branded Discmania.

Austin:
Not totally. These new lineups will feature 100% new molds and plastic, designed by us.

I post it a lot because I hear it a lot.

Hmmm... I absolutely love Opto/Lucid/VIP. In my opinion it's more durable than Star but less durable than Champion. I can grip it way better than Champion though so it hits my sweet spot for durability and grip. To each their own I guess.

I'm excited to have more discs in my favorite plastic - Opto/Lucid/VIP/NEO

This announcement did not live up to the hype (McBeth to Discraft was a far more earth-and-DG-shaking event), but I'm curious what this is going to mean for the Innova-Discmania and DynamicDiscs-Lat64 relationships. Seems like things are "busy" right now with all these cooks in the kitchen...

They might be able to produce a more consistent flight pattern in discs but overall they are a lower quality. I dont see this going well for Discmania unless they get Simon and Eagle to throw the crap out of the new stuff.
Dave Feldberg would disagree directly with your moment about durability. He said in his most recent in the bag with infinite, that it's hard to beat Lat64 in.

Or rather a lot of servers waiting on a couple of cooks...

I wonder if he was talking his book (i.e. his sponsor), or if he has a plastic available to him that others don't. I've found Gold Line to be anything but durable, and while Opto is more durable, my experience (sample size, a lot of discs) is that it's not even close to Champion and not even as durable as Star. And I have several Rivers and Furys that can testify to how easily they beat in.

tbh of recent its not even about their durability its about how horrid their flashing is you dont end up throwing it in the first place cuz the discs will cut your fingers so worrying about the durability is unnecessary

trilogy killed itself

I don't have a ton to compare but I got a bunch of latitude discs today and my Pure in base plastic has flashing and maybe a little on the gold line one. Mids and Drivers are fine.

My first disc ever I bought was the worst and it was a Star Aviar P&A but I guess no bead putters like Aviar and Pure are more prone to flashing I guess. My MVP, Discraft and Kastaplast discs never had flashing.

Flashing is annoying and I sure think company should sell discs without it but at least it's not that hard to smooth them myself now.
