Arlinghaus is the "next" best thing. So, if they can keep him locked up, they should be good long term.
Tamm could be poised for a breakout year, but I tend to lean toward Tattar being someone who is top tier week in, week out. We just don't see her enough.

Notable appearances in 2019:

European Open - 5th
Worlds - 6th
USWDGC - 1st
Canadian Nationals - 1st
MVP Open - 2nd
GMC - 2nd
Delaware Challenge - 2nd

All of these events she either won or placed near the top of the field with Paige, Cat, Hokom, Weese etc in the field.

She's right there in the mix. It's time Lat ponies up and backs a full-scale U.S Tour for her (provided she is even interested in something like that).

I agree with this too to an extent. I see them scaling back their line of discs as a smart move. I throw quite a bit of trilogy. But between the 3 brands, there was/is quite a bit of overlap in molds. Latitude cutting the overmolds, for example, is a good move. Leave that to MVP and Axiom. It's hard to find a lot of the molds I do throw in the plastic/weight I want already. I just don't see them opening up stores everywhere. Brick and mortar stores are already going away at a pretty fast pace. Disc golf stores aren't the future IMO.

Everywhere? No, but if they continue to open stores in strategic markets where they can run local events, clinics, etc, it could be worth while. While I 100% agree most retail brick and mortar is a dying bread, disc golf as a whole is still young and the physical hands on aspect of the sport yields itself well to store retail, especially for new players.

Not married, but they did just get out of a serious relationship, they’ve gotta be hurting from getting dumped like a sack of potatoes.

Didn't they already cut like 1/3 of their molds earlier this year?

Truthfully, I own about a dozen DD discs and all were bought mainly in support of Paige Pierce, two of them are her signature discs. About the only one in my bag part time is a classic blend Judge. I can't foresee buying any more from them in the future.

I have no data to back it up, but I'd wager Latitude and Westside still make lots of moola in Sweden and Finland. They could probably thrive off just that.

It's a start. Way too many speed 13-15 drivers between the three companies.
