You mean an answer to what's the point of the disc? Really?

What's the point of MVP/Streamline making normal discs again? Broadening their market? When you think about it for more than half a second it kind of makes sense.

People buy things that look cool all the time. Special limited stamps, tour series LE discs, etc...disc golfers eat that stuff up.

Sarek is also Spock's Dad, so Star Trek fans can appreciate this disc too

The disc is definitely going to sell well. From a manufacturer's point of view, that's reason enough to make a new disc.

Well, I think this will actually be pretty good for MVP/Axiom honestly. These overmolds LOOK a lot like MVP/Axiom stuff even if they don't have The GYRO(TM). If Lat sells a lot of these and people get used to seeing them on the course, they may be more inclined to try MVP/Axiom overmolds. I know there are people who don't buy MVP/Axiom just because they are "those weird looking discs from that other company."

This also means that I won't be able to immediately tell on sight whether any random overmold I see someone throwing is MVP/Axiom or Innova. I mean, these look enough like Axiom proton or MVP eclipse to make it hard to tell them apart at a glance.

Well so far that's all we know about it right?

Maybe it's the best thing since an aviar, but we couldn't know because no one has them yet
