Anyone heard of these guys? They have an overstable putter available for pre-order. http://www.impactdiscs.com/

Ive been on the site through the link on the PDGA site but the times ive been on it there hasnt been anything worth while on the site. But now it looks like there might be something, and from the computer simulation photos, it kinda seems like they dont have the disc molded yet.

I'm starting to think there is way too many companies on the market now. Yeah it's good for smaller companies to get out there,but with big companies like Latitude 64,Innova and Discraft(just examples) I feel it's harder for them for people to want to try their stuff ,because honesty it's already been done.

Now me I won't be trying it just because I have a Zone in my bag.

My thoughts exactly. Is there really a need for another manufacturer?

Also, I'm not terribly excited about the naming convention.
OSP, and presumably stuff like USP, SP, USM, SM, OSM, UFD,...

The names could have been more thought out or maybe they are truley marketing these as beginner discs. Who knows. lol

They are intentionally going against the grain with these names. You have to give them credit for willing to take a risk.

Sounds almost as terrible as QJLS and other weird names of that one company (millennium? )

This thread already exists.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with them. As someone who's trying to promote a new company myself, I know it can be tough to get into the market.

They're releasing the OSP first, not the VOSP. You shouldn't want to try it because you have a Wizard in your bag.

I'm kind of interested in trying this myself. The top looks really shallow, kind of like a shallower Challenger. I doubt it's going to kick Wizards out of my bag, but, thanks to my midget hands, it could give the PA2 a run for its money off the tee.

@ElementZ...this thread looks like it's actually older.
