I thought I heard that he was throwing Enforcers during the Open at Tallahassee earlier this year. That was from commentary, though, so not the most reliable source of information.

My guess for retired molds:
Freedom
Renegade
Sheriff
Breakout
Thief
Witness
Fugitive
Proof
Warrant
Suspect
Marshal
This is only 11 molds though. No idea what the 12th would be

Does anyone throw the Slammer? That one seems likely to be cut since it’s kind of a less popular Harp.

LOL. The bolded is exactly what I said about the DD Freedom. If they OOP the Freedom, it won't hurt my feelings a bit.

I do fear that the Fugitive may be on the chopping block. It's already out of stock on the Infinite site (as of yesterday when I looked).

You might be right but I was thinking that one of the Giants in his last ITB had the newer stamp design on it.

-----------------------------------------

If the Freedom isn't on the chopping block I'll be shocked. It's just not a good disc. I'm pretty certain the Renegade sucks as well but I've only thrown a beat-in used one so I'll reserve hate. I've seen lower power players do okay with them.

If they collectively get rid of all 14+ speed drivers, that should clear out a bunch of overlap and unpopular molds.

The Enforcer, Defender, and Verdict are all fantastic molds...even though the Verdict is the only one of those I bag. In comparison I think the Convict is an unpredictable "control" disc, which is the worst kind of control driver.

I think when they make some cuts they'll be on the flippy side of things.
I agree on the Defender. That's a really nice driver mold. It holds up well to big rips and flies overstable without being a glideless brick. Defenders are pretty long, and can be that "workhorse" driver many people talk about. I won't even say I like the Raider better than the Defender. I think I like them both equally. They perform slightly different shots.

If they OOP'ed the Convict I wouldn't lose any sleep. It isn't a bad mold, but it gets erratic in any sort of wind.

Agree on the Freedom. I've tried multiple Freedoms and really tried to find a use for that mold. I can't. Every one of them I throw is an unpredictable, flippy mess. Throw a Freedom an ounce too hard and it flips violently. Throw it too little and it stalls out and dies.

I'm all about a good warp speed driver, but the Freedom isn't it.

That mold has to be on the chopping block. I don't even think very many people throw them.
