Their model number can be compared to the plastic type of our discs, and the type of club is standard. Pretty simple IMO. Maybe not as "cool" or "creative" but its clean, simple, and professional.
/me slowly covers his Callaway Great Big Bertha War Bird Driver because its not clean, simple or professional enough for ball golf.

Granted, however it is nowhere really stated 1:1 that with DM the bigger number would always equate more stability. They went and threw in the "x" also starting last year (in P1x, PDX, DDx, P3x).

But yeah, the molds being named like they are with Prodigy is fine with me, but the plastics I will never learn. With Discmania, D-line, P-line, S-line etc is pretty straightforward especially when you remember they are molded by Innova and thus their plastic obviously conforms.

I have always wondered how much Ricky doesn't like doing social media vs. he is horrible at it. Of course he would get better if he did it more, but he may just hate doing it. He seems very introverted to me. I have a buddy that talks a lot and naturally with friends, but is incredibly socially awkward with people he does not know and does not go anywhere near social media.

Ricky is not one of my favorite players because of this, although I certainly don't dislike him in any way. But I definitely enjoyed watching disc golf in previous years when he and McBeth had more head to head battles. Disc golf is more fun to watch when the McBeast has someone consistently going back and forth with him.

Going to the number system for Discmania was an improvement, though. That scandinavian death metal theme Jussi wanted to go with, was at best, ironically cool.

I think the definition of Scandinavian Death Metal is ironically cool.
