I bag a Tyrant, Scale, Stego and Gila. All are outstanding molds

The Company got them in a sale of the stuff after orginal Lighting owner died. Gotta Go Gotta Throw was the right one for the buying of it all as they had the Lighting Bags made by outside manufacturing for Lighting. I know as only the non Lighting branded bags of same models were sold on Gotta Go Gotta Throw site at a few dollar less price then the same bags on Lighting site that were not brand, touted on Gotta Go Gotta Throw as the supplier of the same bags to Lighting who just put on logos on about 1/2 of the bags. Though once Lighting owner died then Gotta Go Gotta Throw must have stopped supplying and having a factory make the bags for Lightning.
Fixed so it makes more sense.

There are still plans for more Tyrants to my knowledge, despite logistical hurdles.

I moved from Jersey to Texas for work and we had a fallout with our manufacturer over quality issues so it was the right time to shut it down.
We miss you guys at ozone and element. Long live the original faction! Totally a novel idea that you guys had for the andro, and I still think Element had the best naming scheme and stock stamps ever.

Kasta, as said earlier, has probably outgrown this role, but I dig them. Bagged the Stal for a while, currently bag the Reko as a thrower.

I would say they're too big to be considered a microbrand at this point, though I love my Omegas. I had a mostly Legacy bag a few years ago and loved the Patriot, Outlaw, and Rival. Great plastic from both brands!

Reptilian and Above Ground are very different companies from what I have seen. Jamie has been very proactive with Gateway in getting mold pieces made for specific discs he wants to make, so he's been really hands-on with developing these discs. Above Ground just seems to pick up the results of mix and match mold pieces and markets them; they don't seem nearly as involved in the development phase.

That really didn't bother me until the Baobab came out; Jamie stuck his neck out to get Stego's to market and stuck it out farther to get the mold recreated after the first run sold out. He marketed the crap out of that disc and carved out this unique spot with it. AGL just picked up on that after the fact and now they have the Baobab out to take Stego sales away from Reptilian. Something about that rubs me the wrong way.

Legacy is such a region-specific brand. I had never even seen a Legacy disc on a course in my first 2 years of playing. Then I moved 1000 miles away, and it seems like all the good players here bag a ton of Legacy plastic.

I agree, was interested in AGL before that but that was a low blow.
