46: The Maul has been my biggest concern too until today. I picked up one of the new heavy Diamonds. 174g. Got to work with it today next to the Maul and they are very close. Within variance disc to disc. I'm no longer worried if the Maul goes down.

After reading this my Mauls feel safer and my Culverins feel less safe. That's okay though as I think there are more discs like the Culverin(Getaway,Thunderbird,... Etc). Not sure that I could replace a Maul so easily.
nice to see some of their older molds (pure, river, fuse) still are top performers. I bag all 3 and would hate to have to replace any of them (pures and fuses in particular)

In hindsight, I wish I had latched onto Fuses rather than Evidences.

I can't believe the Flow is 12th on that list, the one in my bag is the only one I've ever seen on the course but I really like it. So maybe it's actually safe from cuts.

That said, when I read the next 10 molds below it I don't think I've seen any of them more than 3 times in the wild other than the Havoc, and some are at a zero or one.

Maybe Lat's overall numbers are just so much lower than I thought, that after a few of the molds I see all the time like Ballista/BPro, Explorer, Compass, the overall sales just aren't that high?

What I find really interesting though is how much better Opto sells at 41% than Goldline/Goldline Burst at 18%.

Another thing to add on to this is that at least in the U.S. the DD website offers free shipping and stocks pretty much all of the trilogy molds all the time. I personally have, over the past 3-4 years, purchased at least 50+ trilogy discs and only 3 were ordered from infinite.

So while these numbers that infinite puts up are relevant, I would say for trilogy they are less representative than that of Discraft or Innova, companies that except for tour series, I personally have never purchased off of their websites.

Although there may be some truth to this, I would have to generally disagree. I guessed all but one of the Dynamic OOP discs based solely on Infinite's sales figures. So even if their Trilogy sales vs other manufacturers are maybe not representative of Trilogy sales in the market as a whole, I think they are still an accurate representation of Trilogy discs compared with other Trilogy discs.

I'm definitely concerned for the Falchion's survival.

Yep, pretty sure she's gone. On the bright side, I find the Vandal to be extremely similar so you may look into this as a substitute.

The Falchion and Sidewinder (especially in Champion plastic) are also extremely similar, so that's the fallback I'd recommend. I just hate it that the Falchion is likely to go OOP, since it's such a good disc.

I must be behind the news cycle here. Is L64 going to do another wave of cuts? I thought the DD and L64 OOP announcements were already made, and we were just waiting on Westside?
