Which is why I said he doesn't care about them... Besides, I think people get flight numbers in their head too much and don't just trust their own experience with discs.

Always felt flight numbers to be really subjective and never understood why people get so caught up in them. Plus with websites that speculate flight patterns and numbers like InfiniteDiscs, it takes a few seconds to see how a disc/mold "should" fly under the right conditions.

I've noticed discraft stuff has been leaving the shelves at the local shop a lot lately, and the used bin for Innova has been piling up. They always had Buzzz's, Challengers, Comets and Cranks in stock so I usually go there to buy, last time I was in stock was pretty thin. I think Discraft will turn up the heat on sales and molds/stamps etc after signing some big names. How could they not? Not sure if disc golf will ever be their bread and butter over Ultimate, but this is definitely going in the right direction.

i hope with the McBeth move, renewed social media and new plastics Discraft gets some well deserved love in my area. i throw a mixed bag because i throw what is best for me and my style. Discraft, Innova,Vibram and Discmania all have a place in my bag.i even used a lightweight Lightning #1 Hyzer as a utility disc for years before replacing it with a Discraft Z Flick 150 (High Performance). i am just sick of people's brand loyalty when it turns to "i hate (insert manufacturer) discs".

here's hoping the 2019 season opens some peoples eyes.

Does McBeast become McBeest?

Threw it a couple times at a putting league. Shrug, flies nice enough. Might be an option for a throwing/upshot putter, but I have that part of the bag pretty well set. I am a soft putter fan, so the plastic is not for me, as a main putter. Besides, I have been using a Soft Magnet for 20+ years, I am convinced there is no magic in a new putter.

I did notice, from three or so guys using it in putting league, that it rolls all over the place. If this disc hit a wall, cage, nub, chains....it rolled. Not sure how this translates into real play, but it was odd.

I found these new offerings on the Innova factory store very interesting:
I-Dye Champion Thunderbird Factory Second
I-Dye Champion Roc3 Factory Second

I think we just found out how Innova will be moving some of their Paul McBeth product without Paul's name being obvious, and without Paul getting much additional income after leaving. I wonder how they'll get rid of the Destroyers and Novas. What else am I missing?

The Destroyers are probably already all out if Infinite alone sold 600+ in one day after the announcement. Don't think they ever made as many Novas, so they might be out, too.
