I completely agree. I think what really got everyone excited about the kong and Luna is that they were his discs, designed by him in conjunction with discraft and by releasing the proto Lunas first , allowed hype to build up for the kong. Then when the test flights started coming people went nuts for the swirly plastic, rarity, and really smooth flight. It really set up the proto release to be a huge success and as the disc gets produced in other plastics I don’t think that hype is dying down any time soon. Someone even made a kong collector group page on Facebook. One thing is for sure. Paul knows how to sell discs. His logo is simple but very recognizable. That’s marketing 101

What are you saying 'nah' to from my post? Why are you quoting me? You comment seems unrelated.

I'd say you're right on this one. Paul definitely seems to throw the Force more than the Kong. What I've seen of the Kong (in his hands) it seems to be a little flippier than the Force. Longer, but wilder. Having both drivers at his disposal is a good thing though.

Paul can save the Kongs for wide open huge drives where accuracy isn't as much a concern.

I am not sure I could honestly tell the difference between a destroyer and my kong. Kong is just slightly shorter and a touch more glide. Was getting it out to 450' regularly, Destroyers averaging 30' longer, bosses around 50' longer. Not overly impressed, but will continue to test it out...

Or for much glider forehands that he can trust on a flex but still rely on to come back. Case in point hole 1 TDTM

Met a buddy on the course that had a Kong. Did not get to throw it, but it felt smaller and fit my hand better than a Destroyer.

I bought one Kong, not flat or not super domey, 172g. Feels very nice in my hand, I bag Wraiths and I love them but Kong feels even better. When thrown full power (indoors, everything tends to be a bit more stable there) on a slight hyzer, it popped up to flat and turned very slightly and finished up with smooth fade. More stable than my Wraiths. Fits pretty nicely between my Xcals/Forces and Wraiths.

Judging by how many dongs and lunas I've been seeing I think Paul should've asked for 5 million.

An unfortunate typo...

I think Paul is probably making a percentage of the profits from the sale of his line as well as his signature line of discs.
