Think it's been out of business for awhile. Disc King was another target brand from Wisconsin that I believe was American made and has ceased operations.

Yea, I was wondering about that. The stuff on the website was a little dated. It's a shame, but again, how were they going to compete? Only so many people are willing to pay more for a domestic product.

Thanks for the update.

Very true. I have a set amount of money to spend. Why should I buy American when the overhead here drives up prices?
I had rather save money on factory produced goods built ourside of the USA and spend my saved money on local organic produce and hand built goods.

However baskets, custom built per hole, to create green 'shape'...yeah, I could see that being worth spending the extra money on domestic baskets

The truth is that anyone complaining about the baskets being foreign made, is free to try making their own, and join a rather competitive niche market.
There may be a profit to be made. But so far, the cheaper baskets allow for cheaper course install prices. Which translates to more courses installed with them. Folks are still free to upgrade the existing equipment, if they really want to.

The idea of baskets being custom made per hole for 'shape' is intriguing tho. Curious how that would work. Other than the bamboo, wind chime style tone poles. Still wanna try those!

Which allow for disc manufacturers, both foreign and domestic, to sell more discs.

The Predator baskets are made in America, I think. Though its been awhile since I been around them at a tourney so I don't know if they are still making them.

How did we turn a thread about Dynamic's inability to fill an order for a tourney on time into a political thread?

Some might want to speculate that the fact that Trilogy discs have to cross an ocean to get to their American distribution point for shipment to tourneys could be a contributing factor in DD's inability to fill an order. Really, that's a valid argument.

Others were merely being haters, doing their nationalistic chest beating, which to be honest, never made this country great.

Then the counterattack ensued.
