Dave Dunipace wouldn’t make one and neither would Dynamic Discs. <DD and DD you see? Discraft saw the opportunity and swooped in to seize it. Game stepped up? No doubt. Expect the proto Hydromagnetometers to fetch a price well over $1000 US, as they’ll be produced in a rubber blend recently unearthed by Paul and Paige on an exploratory archeological dig straddling the border of Lesotho and Kyrgyzstan. The material has never been seen before and will never be seen again. Expect stock runs in Pro D, stamped with some sort of monster energy drinks/Philadelphia Flyers hybrid logo to be released shortly after at a slight discount.
Speaking of Rico, you must be Casey's mysterious Uncle Rico.

I remember playing with him in the late 90's when he was Discraft sponsored and throwing a beat to crap roc with the stamp wiped and "roll bitch" written on it in sharpie.

Yeah...that custom job bag he used to have was ridiculous. Can't remember the name of that custom bag company but they were pretty big for like a season or two and then faded into obscurity.

Where has there ever been proof they have copies of any molds? ALLEGEDLY the Ghost is the 8x Roc mold (IIRC) but that's hearsay. One of the Rico's was a Magnetaholic so of course they could recreate one - doesn't mean Discraft ever let them have any mold pieces.
I never said that Legacy has the exact pieces but with 3D printing, the ability is there to create molds then modify parts to have molds be as close as one could get to the other companies without blatantly just making an exact clone to keep from getting sued.

Uncle who got me started was named Eric, his son Brad and then thanks to uncle John who was supposed to play but twisted his ankle playing haky Sack the night before, so I was as well as my brother using that uncles discs on the older course from 1986 in Winona Minnesota. Yeah my one uncle Is bald like Steve R but he is not named that.

My bag Vertex Angler backpack used to weigh due in part to the metal seat frame, 7 pounds alone as in just the bag and seat. Now my newer disc golf backpack The Athletico $35-$40 that I got in mid 2018 (sold on Amazon only) is lighter on the metal frame then the old Vertex Backpack part was. The weight for the Vertex backpack alone was about 3 pounds. The second bonus is that the Athetico backpack is actually built for disc golf use as in easier to get the discs in and out of the bag. I got the Athetico when it came out as I needed a bag that opens with an open top but I did not want a Disc bag like the Innova hero/superhero or similar styles as then the two upper putter pockets are not as usable with the Vetex Angler Backpack seat I was planing on adding to the other backpack. Now I am a tad lighter with the entire set up and the bag has discs come in and out much easier then with the original Vertex backpack. The new backpack from Athetico weighs in a guess of weight about 1 to 1.5 pounds.

I did have to modify the Athetico Disc Golf Backpack but not a whole lot, more just cut into parts of the two side storage to have the seat frame fit, add some safety pins to the side storage as they could open up all the way and make the side storage not usable, then make the two lower putter pockets into one so I could fit the four main putters in there. I did a bit more just for my use including the fitting of the seat but two of the three I told you are necessary just to use the bag. the first one the top putter pockets suck and if a disc is in the front/forward most of the 3 pockets it will push the other next one to the inside and block up the capacity to hold another disc; then with the 3 putter pockets the zipper cover for the discs needs to sit in the top most pocket of the Putter storage as the thing will not zip off all the way so otherwise it just hangs there when completely unzipped. Then second the side storage pockets could get opened up too much and then you have everything in the storage pockets falling out.
