Default Did element discs fold?

Just getting back in the game and the landscape has seemed to change some. I loved my plutoniums. Did element close up shop?

Element I think went to just branded merchandise and stopped promoting their own line of discs.

AGL sells the Manzanita, which is the Iridium. The AGL Madrone is the Plutonium. So you can still get the disc, you just have to switch companies.

Good to know. Though I personally wish gateway would just take the mold so I could buy them from the source locally. (Post covid of course).

They didnt change anything? Still the voodoo bottom with the RDG thumbtack top?

While your checking out AGL, I really dig their Sycamore fairway driver. Very TLish...I think JCass said something about it being a tweaked Sabre.

I only threw a Manzanita; it appeared to be the exact same disc as the Iridium to me but I didn't have one with me to compare.

Well Element Discs might have supplied the plastic to make the discs and not given it to Gateway, why though I do not know, only company I can think of like this is Hyzerbomb was like this with a plastic not quite the same as G-Star that helped Innova create G-Star but now that plastic is more like G-Star.
