As the premier disc market moves more toward boutique discs, I think that will be common. It is exaggerated on tour discs, but I think they are using this to boost sales. Almost like allocated whiskeys at your local liquor store

Fair enough. It is a big markup. But I think Sun King is free shipping on any purchases over $12.

Big X were at least 5-8 years ago. Most I have seen now just say X-Out. It could be that some of those "Big X" are really 11x x-outs. Innova seems to have some hidden stacks they just send out occasionally. Got a bunch of x-out STB a couple of years ago, even though they haven't made them in a while.

Eagle L's are like -1, 2.

TL3's are closer to 0 turn.

Somebody should email Mark and ask him what they’re referred to in the warehouse. I’d bet a dollar it’s not flat and firm.
its flat and firm. firm skips way better and is more OS. gstar firebirds are flat but not FAF!

I mean on paper and seeing the lines he hits the Eagle should be the disc. But do they start off super beefy and that's why he likes old ones?
My eagle experience had always been with Star, I wanted a champ thinking it might hold the sweet spot longer. It is a you said glideless and dumpy compared to star eagle or any Teebird.

I wonder if he'll go with a luster eagle, flat topped. The luster definitely seems like it would option. He did say in an interview he has to call klimo to get his permission. Haha
