Putters - Baron, Baroness, Baronet,

Fairways- Count, Countess, Viscount

Distance - Earl, etc.
The naming schema won't translate to Americans. I am somewhat of a history nerd, and even I can't remember if a Duke or a Barron is higher on the hiarchy.

Perhaps have dual name(as RPM does), one for the commonwealth and one for American/Asian markets.

Highlander, Beefeater, Longbow, The Tower, Big Ben, Avon, Globe, RobRoy... are all very historical British names and would translate better to American pop culture.

I agree, but it could be worse. It could be..... oh wait, I fuss at others for bringing politics into play.


Best of luck on your project.

The naming scheme won't make sense to Americans in terms of us understanding from the name which disc is faster just from the name. Still, I don't think that necessarily makes it bad; it will just seem more arbitrary to us (which is how most naming systems are anyway). It's certainly no worse than the law and order themed naming system that Dynamic uses. And I'm sure it will get less complaints than the letter/number system Prodigy uses. HOWEVER, all that being said, Big Ben, The Tower, and Beefeater would all make great names for discs so...

It will get no complaints from me at all. I was just giving a bit of cultural feedback.

I actually am thinking that I want a Count, just so I can do a custom dye on it. I have seen Oscar the Grouch dyes, why not a Count dye on a Count.

Should've named the baseline plastic Serf plastic.

I like the naming scheme for the discs though. The molds being related (Baron, Baroness, etc) makes as much sense as River/River Pro and Eagle X/L and H1 and H1v2 etc.

I'm just waiting for somebody to buy a Duke and Americanize it with a custom John Wayne dye.

The Regal I'm struggling to think of a similar plastic feel.

the idea was also to tie in to something intrinsically British as well.

I'm also a history major and my favourite period was always the Dark Ages to medieval.

Honestly, that’s where my head went first. I can see a cold eyepatch True Grit dye eventually.

Might want to rethink that URL while you’re at it. Phonetically discgolfuk is, uh, interesting. You don’t want to go down the path of therapistfinder.com (for finding therapists, right? Right?). At least go with DiscGolfUK.com.

Well they might go the other route like Duke, Duchess, Monarchy not Monarch, Prince, Princess and others like that that are not taken from royalty stuff or they are going with random names in UK and could end up with a Kilt, a Big Ben, a Ale lots of British beer is a type of Ale, Highland or Fell, flat (apartment), Moor, Wimbledon, Rugby, Football (soccer), Cricket, Eye (London Eye), Stonehenge, ect. Odd names that do not fit other then they were British things, places, or sports.
