And for the record, I don't think the stamp was a good idea.

I just find the outrage pretty strange.

That you don't understand or, more likely, refuse to recognize, the simple difference between illegal activity and legal activity in the context of its association with a sport, says much more that anything else you have to say about the subject. It's not about history, it's about the present. It's perfectly reasonable for people to make the same differentiation between the two that recognized in current law.
You sound like an alcoholic claiming they have never touched a drug in their life. If you don't recognize that beer, which sponsored many disc golf events in the early 90's, is a mood altering substance and thus carries a similar societal connotation as marijuana then your dense.

Will somebody buy them up and start something new?
That would be nice, but would take either some major retooling and maybe even re-submission to the PDGA for removal of emblem since that would really change the disc OR some hefty royalties paid to Vibram for using their trademark if it stayed. Either way, whoever would be looking at a costly start up.

My understanding is they also don't use standard injection molding. I dont think anyone else in the dg world has the equipment to use the molds.

Compression molding. Its the material prep that takes so long. There are a couple of videos on Youtoob that show the process. Shows why they cost so much. Making the rubber ready for use is a very involved process.

Already rebranded for 2018!? Your doublespeak makes no sense to me Did the Vibram for 2018 already happen? How many times did MVP brand it already before 2018? Does Vibram grow their rubber trees at Maple Hill? MVP now runs the Rubber Farm?
