Without a doubt, Prodigy. Kevin Jones or Seppo. Who else on Trilogy would be in better contention than those 2? At least on the men's side.

Zach Arlinghaus

He's only 16 and already shown what he can do on a track like Idlewild... not to mention the show he put on in Emporia at Jr Worlds


Yeah besides Zach I think they have their irons in a lot of grassroots fires like Isaiah Esquivel. The young lads grew up with Trilogy being a big deal so it has a lot of appeal to the next generation of players.

They still have a nice stable of players like Melton, Oakley, Paige Shue, Tattar, Tamm, Emerson Keith, Clemons, Rebecca Cox, etc. Now they've added Generalissimo Nikko Locastro who can catch fire at any time and win the biggest tourneys. I can see Risley breaking out too if he stays healthy. I think he worked out a lot last year.

This is very true. If you have never been to Emporia, the support from the locals is insane. Most of the juniors in the area are on Team Trilogy simply because they get misprint discs for like 8 bucks brand new at the shop, their parents make them if they want new discs. Everybody from 12-year-olds to 65-year-olds throws nothing but a trilogy. What this does is create a loyalty factor that stems from a very, very early age (Paige B). It's not just Kansas either, their pull reaches southern states more so too. I'm sure DD will be just fine with some of the players like Zach A and Isaiah winning B tiers in MPO for another couple years until they hit their stride big time. These companies have complete ebbs and flows and I think this is just one of those for DD.

I am an amateur disc golfer. I play for fun. I'm not half bad for a casual player. Most of the dozens of folks I play with are the same.

How much influence does which manufacturer has the best team have on my or my associates disc buying habits?

I'll tell ya - none!

I've always thrown mainly Innova, and Lat 64/Westside because I like their molds and their plastic. I know plenty of folks with some Dynamic discs in their bags, and they throw them because they like them, not because certain pros throw them.

Gosh, why would anyone throw MVP or Axiom? They've never won anything!

Can we please once and for all stop referencing "Trilogy" as a sponsor? All 3 companies are NOT sponsoring the player, nor did all 3 companies sign contracts with the player.

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).
She is already the best woods player in FPO and has not been playing as long as the other top women.

But the disc was already made...so DD sold them anyway
I'm not sure how that makes DD look bad. Because they weren't perfectly to PP's specifications? Were they supposed to mold samples, ship them to the US, wait for her approval, and if they didn't get it, repeat the process until they had it perfect? Seems awfully inefficient and expensive to me.

She won a title, they were going to put out a disc to celebrate it. A disc that was far and away their hottest selling disc last month (and probably this month while supplies last). What business would wait around just in case they wouldn't be able to do it at all?
