Am I reading that right? I see a listing for the redone Apache but not the Warrior. Feel free to correct me if I'm assuming too much.

Our market research shows over 99% of the people who play disc golf do not play pdga events?

80% do not play any kind of organized event at all.
The Majority of people who play disc golf play for fun or friendly competition with their friends.
This disc is intended for these players or for players that just want to see how far then can throw.


We can (and will) eventually make a similar disc that is within the rules, but it probably wont be until after the first of next year.
We currently have as many as 12 new discs we will be releasing over the next year, including the new Ninja top ( with surface technology) on the Apache wing and on the Sabre Wing.

Our next release (in about a month) will be a mid-range between the Element and Warrior called The SCOUT!
Depending on the stability we made add surface technology to the leading 1/2" of the Scout.

A questionnaire on the ninja will be available on our website after the release.
Those who participate will be eligible to win prizes including, lessons with me or Nikko, custom stamped discs and minis, Golf bags, Bulls-Eyes Training baskets and Titan Pro-24 baskets.

Feel free to share your opinions on the disc or our decision to release a non pdga approved disc once you have thrown it.

I would not buy it if it was not PDGA approved.
I mean what if I did, and, I liked it? Then I could not use it in sanctioned (or otherwise) play without a guilty conscience...

Methinks the tournament player with more a forgiving conscience is their target market. Troubling shenanigans.

Their market is people who don't compete in PDGA sanctioned events...which is most of the DGers I know. That is still a pretty big piece of the market place. Most people that shop for discs would never even think to ask if it is "PDGA sanctioned". All they care about is that their buddy bought one and can throw the crap out of it.

Why does this remind me of the cheesy baseballs with the built-in speed detectors?
