That's true with Innova / Discmania as well. McBeth throws the P2, Eagle throws the Max etc

I certainly wouldn't have any problems if someone decided to pour Opto plastic into the Teebird mold...

New and exciting.


So lemme get this straight; they're changing the king stamp to stay relevant?

With the Queen's overall height at 1.5 cm compared to the King at 1.9 cm, that's a pretty significant difference in overall feel in the hand.

I'm not giving much credit to the thickness speck of high speed drivers. When you compare a domey King to a flat one, there could already be that 0.4cm difference in height.

With putters it is way more reliable info.

i wouldn't necessarily say it is a problem. but, considering that a majority of disc golfers don't have a speed 14 arm, i'd say all of those seem unnecessary, especially considering the fact that they collectively have fewer than 5 speed 10 discs.

like i said, more power to them, but i don't see the point




i won't even go into the safety aspect of too many high speed drivers on the course in hands of those who can't control them

i'll leave that rant for mr. dunipace
Having a "speed 14" arm doesn't mean anything. My buddy who can probably throw 310~ max liked the king for about a month. Then he said it turned into a "flip machine" and was to unreliable. You really think he has to much arm for a speed 14 disc? No. Speed numbers don't really matter. If speed REALLY mattered, the top pros would throw the fastest discs, but they don't. They throw discs that are consistent. Its why Ricky and Drew like the Enforcer and Stiletto, Eagle and Simon like the PD2, and McBeth likes the destroyer. All controllable high speed drivers.

and "your buddy" really has no business throwing a king when there are literally dozens of discs better suited for someone who maxes out at 310

As much as I understand that...disc companies wouldn't be making more than one or two speed 12+ models each if people with 10' didn't buy them. And they certainly wouldn't be making flippy ones.
