Sounds way too complicated than it needs to be.

I don't think there will be any cross-pollination between the Discmania brands and their distinct molding partners. Latitude won't be molding DDXs and P2s in Sweden, and Innova won't be molding Links and Instincts in California.
Well we do have a precedent already in place since the same manufacturer already has a similar deal with DD, even the delivery addresses are pretty similar, relatively speaking.

There's a chance it makes BOTH brands easier to get in the US if it reduces their shipping costs or can figure a more efficient system at scale.

Was that you on the Las Vegas course overview? Good work.
That was Scott Merritt on the mic, the assistant TD of the LVC and a pretty good player himself. I'm not sure who produced the video, probably a local or tourney staff member with a drone?

I liked the video as well, pretty cool that CCDG did their version of it for WTO in the same week.

Same for imported Guitars. This is a far simpler arrangement here in disc golf than how that industry has evolved.

It's a sign of growth, way of the world.

Oh yeah. Especially when a MIM Strat from a distance can look almost the same as a CIJ or USA one. One is $200 and one is close to $2000. And then you have to have a certain skill to really tell the difference. And then since they're wood and all start from a unique piece, you can luck into one for less than a grand that is fantastic if you're really picky.

Plus all the underlying stuff like the electronics and hardware that puts it all together is slightly different, without much labeling unless you know what to look for.

Or unless you have the time and experience develop the ear and feel and just trust yourself for what sounds and plays good, you can find something that isn't reflected in the price correctly.

Disc golf...discs are $8-20 plastic circles and beat in and fly different.

Strats are like Firebirds, the hardcore nerds all have different OOP favorites, and they all go for way above MSRP on the secondary market to other people who care just as much...while the rest of us scratch our heads.

That's a good comparison. Strats were built to be as efficiently made as possible...neck, body and electronics attached to pickguard all separate, then bolt it together and it's a guitar. Just lucky that they ended up sounding awesome. Well except for the bridge position.

Firebirds are meant to be beefy. They just go left and ignore wind.

If you don't care that much any will do. If you care a ton then you seek out the most minute differences.

On one end I want run of the mill champ Firebirds with some dome so I can actually throw and manipulate them a little...makes it easy. On the other end...well I'd seek out the most specific of nuances on a guitar.

I am one of those nerds with both Strats and Firebirds... though I don’t shell out the cash for them. If you are careful and know what you are looking for, you can find good of both cheaper than the crazy aftermarket prices.

Since Lat64, dynamic discs and Westside are the trilogy, will discmania, Innova, lat64 and yikun be called the quartet?

I like where your head is at but I think they should be called the barber shop. Little more differentiation.

What about Millenium, Hyzerbomb, Infinite, maybe others? Innova manufactures discs for a lot of companies.

It's time to start seeing the difference between a disc golf company and a manufacturer of discs. DiscMania is doing awesome here.

To keep it simple for the lay people, they've separated the discs into distinct lines so you know which manufacturer your Discmania disc came from.
