Out of curiosity though, I did google Ultimate forums, and the two top hits have these figures:

ultitalk.com

Compared to DGCR's:

Most users ever online was 2,608, 01-04-2015 at 09:16 AM.
Just arbitrary data, I know, but it hardly lends credence to the notion that ultimate is that much bigger than disc golf.
I was online most of that day, as it was a weekend. That number of DGCR users has to be a glitch or something because it is around double the old record. I'm on here every weekend and it's a ghost town compared to weekdays because most users log on on here from work. (Go to the main page, and look how many users are on right now) I asked Tim about it, but got no answer. So there's your little DGCR usage mystery.

Anyway, none of this has to do with the USDGC, and nobody but me cares about it.....so whatevs.

this talk online is cheap-- step your stream game up otherwise haterz lol. and spend the $$$$$$.
If you think the camera work this year was any better this year then last year you are out your f%$ing mind. I remember full well how DGP was but to think this year was any better is the dumbest sh@t I've ever heard. Oh and I will take fixed cameras at holes over crappy angles, cameras on the ground and pointed at nothing, camera men who cant even find the thrower and no final edited round any day of the week.

Until that changes, I'm not entertaining suggestions that Discraft's reach is bigger than Innova's, and I'll hold off for now on a dissertation of how much better Innova's Advertising and Marketing has been (and still is) than Discraft's..
I was speaking about profitability as a disc manufacturer. Discraft has more because of their total dominance in the other disc sports besides disc golf.

And we are so far away from the OP it's ridiculous.

Yet they sell that sh%t as "best media coverage ever for disc golf". Give me a break. I don't care if its free, Spin still got paid and so did Terry and it was below par. If this sport wants to be next level than deliver a next level product. If not then its all just talk.

Ultimate= 1 disc for 12+ people
Disc Golf= 12+ discs for 1 person.

Just an FYI for those who haven't seen, TheSpinTV has been posting new edited vids of the USDGC as recent as yesterday.

Now the not so good news, none are a final round lead card edit.
