Default Innova Tour Series

I searched google briefly using ' "innova tour series" site:dgcoursereview.com ' and didn't really find anything other than the Brinster thread, so I figured I would take this opportunity to start my 1st thread!

Anyone else interested in any of the other Tour Series discs? Will they for sure come in the new Jolly Launcher plastic? I'm hoping and assuming so, unless these 'new' tour molds had been previously run.

Personally, I'm pretty excited about the Sarah Cunningham Wraith if these press up to be as OS as the rest of the JL line. Each mold so far seems to be more OS than base/old champ, hopefully this trend continues. Not a big fan of hers or VJ's stamp however, but that can be dealt with rather easily.

Any thoughts?

The Champ TL sounds pretty promising, but it sounds like it flies like a TeeBird. I wish more pros would pick mids or putters like McBeast.

The Champion TL in Jolly Launcher material is more High Speed Stable and has more Low Speed Fade than the average Champion TL.
Meh. I could only see myself purchasing this to support Val.

I'm guessing some of this has to do with what Innova offers them and that a lot of putters also have names associated with them.

The TeeBird doesn't already have the Champ's name on it?

These are limited runs to support a pro's tour, not production discs.

It's funny how Innova and Discraft create these "new" plastics that are direct copies of Latitude's plastics.

And/or in the case of Discraft they charge more for their Ti and Crystal discs like they are something special, when Latitude has that stuff as their regular stuff.

Like Z wasn't a copy of Champ? It's funny how business operates like that.

Now if only we could get a company to work to produce completely consistent plastic so the other companies would follow suit.
