Default If you could make a disc company what would it be and discs in it?

Just saying if I had a chance to name a set of discs and company it would be named after Basketball positions as in both sports you are trying to get the object into a Basket . Name of Company would be Basketball Disc Golf. So I would have discs like position like Point Guard a driver in 9-10 speed, Center a ROC diameter Fairway, Defense an approach type midrange, etc. Then I would have discs with throw names, Rebound a get out of jail disc, Free throw as a Putter, Slam Dunk another putter, Ally oop a trick disc for thumbers/Tomahawk/spike hyzer shot , J-Hook a OS midrange or slow fairway, 360 Slam dunk a lid like putter or a fast driving putter, Etc. Also would have a Disc called the Basketball being the Ultimate disc that I would also make in other weights for Super Class Tournaments, Basket a putter with the picture of a Basketball going into a Disc Golf Basket disc of a lid or fastback putter. The Fan, a disc with a wing that is quite large but a taller disc like a slow midrange height so it would be a slow disc that is made for a Fan Grip. Would have two discs that float on water to have easier retrieval of disc a faster fairway called the triple Double and a Putter that floats maybe the Free throw?

Also the Backpack style disc Bag would be called the Locker and carry up to 22-25 discs max and the traditional medium size like a Discraft Tournament size would be the Sports Duffel. The small beginner type bag would be called the Sports Sack, looking more like a modified tote bag but modified to fit discs better.

If I had a company it would probably be something like Reptillian, where I didn’t try to make 50 different molds, but just do 5-10 that were unique and that I would personally use and like the feel/flight of.

Just in case I ever got to make the two I’m really interested in, I won’t divulge the names.

One used to be the Collossus and I posted that in a thing like this and months later Innova called a disc that.

Flagship disc would be a control driver that has a flat top/shoulder like a Firebird, but with a slight puddle top like an old Flick. Aim would to have it be about 9/3/0/5

So it'd be good for your forehand, Eagle's backhand, and maybe someone who throws thumbers real hard?

Yes, basically pointless for 90% of players. Absolutely. But it doesn’t exist and I want it. If people can make 37 Roc variations I can ask for one FB3 yeah?

I would probably only make like 8 molds.

Driver: 11,5,0,2
Fairway: 8,5,0,1
Fairway: 6, 4,0,2.5
Fairway: 6,5,-2,1
Mid: 5,5,0,1
Putter, 3,4,0,0
Putter, 3,4,0,2
Putter, 3,3,-3,0

Most names have been taken at this point, but I would probably go Sci-fi alien themed somehow. Maybe Firefly, Serenity, Leaf on the Wind, Vera, etc.

Baseball-themed

All the distance drivers would have names that are synonyms for home runs, e.g. Tater, Bomb, LongBall, Mash, and the signature disc: the Big Fly
