Lesson learned, and trust me, you got off easy in this case.

Why is Kevin Jones called KJUSA and not simply KJ? Because we already have a KJ and his last name is Nybo!!! I think someone got fined for that last year.

And it's even worse if you make the mistake of shortening Thunderbird to T-bird. The TeeBird purists will have you executed in your sleep.

RE: Tour Series. I remember when the KC Pro line came out and I was all "Why is somebody going to pay $10 for this Cheetah when that Cheetah is $7?" I stocked a few anyway. Second day we had them a couple of TDD's wander in and the conversation was something like

Guy one: "Who is Ken Klee-Mo?"

Guy two: "It says there he is a seven-time World champeen. You need to buy that there disc"

Guy one: *slaps $10 on the counter*

I saw it happen over and over. You would be surprised how endorsements help move discs. The Tour Series idea has been around long enough now that if it totally wasn't working they would have scaled it back by now. Those things must move pretty well.

I wonder if tour series discs are an artifact of the mold propagation of the early 2010's. Back then it seemed like there was a new disc from Innova or Discraft every couple weeks/months. People seemed to like the discs they had and were not keen on trying out new molds all the time, so the new model discs sales were slumping. This brings about Tour series limited runs to get the disc sales back up, especially because it's easy to sell people who love a model to buy it in a different plastic.

They seem to sell out fast at my local store, but our local scene is very active.

Pizza talk got boring. No one ever brought up taco pizza, which is a combination of the two greatest foods and should be elevated to a food category above all others. Prove me wrong.
