I like lids. Mostly for with the wind approacha and putts, or utility putt. The classic warden comes to mind.

Inserting dollar signs throughout his comment is an attempt to give them a bad name. It speaks of their motivation as a company, something that buyers are good at sensing.

The Warden isn't a lid.

But Aim, this is disc golf. Companies are supposed to put out products at a loss or else they are evil sellouts!

Oh my goodness, a company in America focused on money? I've got some news for you. Every disc company's motivated by making money. They may also love the game, but they're not in the business of selling discs to lose money. If anything, making molds to satisfy the large majority of their customers/grab new customers instead of the products their long time supporters are crying for makes them the exact opposite of what you're claiming.

They have their own business plan (money), and they're executing it well enough to grow like a weed. It seems like they're fine with losing an in4d or nolan (long time supporters) by not releasing certain molds in a different plastic or releasing a new baseline plastic because they'll get ten new customers with the next driver release. Loyalty or money? Looks like money wins.

That in no way gives MVP a bad name. That makes them smart businessmen who are worried about ensuring their future is bright. There's nothing wrong with that.
