Like the line in the movie Caligula: "Everything and nothing, Caesar!"

It's a little bit of both, plus one other thing: it's getting harder and harder to find non-Burst Classic discs. Trilogy, especially DD, is making everything in Burst... then charging $3 to $4 more per disc for the Burst discs.

I don't mind them making money, but the shortages of non-Burst discs are making it really hard to find what I do want. I really like the Classic Marshal for putting, but if I can't find any (much less in the weights and colors I want), then there's a problem... and DD may be losing some business in neglecting some potential customers.

Aren't Gold Line and Fuzion the same thing? Or are you experiencing shortages of what you want?

Just do a Judge or Harp in something and the fanboys will take care of the rest

Are they really the EXACT same thing? I don’t honestly know the answer. I throw so many DD discs just because I love Fuzion plastic - if gold line is exactly the same thing, I can see a whole bunch more discs I’d want to try

I want a stiff premium Judge. Would that be Lucid-X ?

Yes.
Gold Line / Fuzion / Tournament are the same thing
Lucid / Opto / VIP are the same thing

They should be... but just as the relatively soft Star plastic of my Roc3 isn't exactly like the very firm Star plastic of my TL3, the Gold Line plastic of my Rivers are very firm while the Fuzion of my Renegade or Sheriff is a tad softer. But for the most part, it should be the same.

If you can find a Gold Line River, see how it feels in your hand. I really like the Gold Line plastic; see if it's good for you.

I actually feel kind of stupid for not knowing this already (after two years on these forums). Oh well!

Isn't Fuzion just Dynamics name for Gold Line?

160-65 GL Rivers are the bomb.
