My favorite has to be Daredevil.

Those guys know how to design a mold.

The Wolverine/Ptero is the straightest flying driver I've ever thrown.

They needed help marketing their molds so when we crossed paths, I was so happy to be able to have some special runs produced for RDG.

I emailed them this morning about a fresh run and maybe some new molding as well.

I love Scales.
I like, like Stegos.
I like Serpents.
Just bought 4 Gilas to try out. The fossil plastic is a favorite and i grabbed a couple armors. There was some convincing done today.

Daredevil? I didn't see that one coming. (FWIW, I agree)

Re. the straight-flying driver, are you sure you're not confusing the Wolverine with the Timberwolf? I've always found the Timberwolf to be straight, while the Wolverine is moderately OS.

The die hards are so hardcore, they pick through all of them within the day. If they remain, they're probably not sought after

Armors are hands down my favorite. Fossil is a close second and will of course wear in faster.

Theyre the same mold. Just different plastic.

That's why we made the Ptero. To increase exposure on a great mold... And to help the confusing Daredevil naming scheme.

Please keep us posted. I'd love a Ptero!

We miss you guys at ozone and element. Long live the original faction! Totally a novel idea that you guys had for the andro, and I still think Element had the best naming scheme and stock stamps ever.
Thanks appreciate it! As far as the tyrant goes we gave RDG all of our manufacturers info, the plastic combination we used, and design files. Jamie was the designer of the disc and he knew exactly what he wanted we just CADed it up for him and had it manufactured, so it was his/RDGs intellectual property.

Not sure if they will go with our manufacturer. They did produce some really solid runs but it just wasn't consistent enough sometimes. Same disc, same plastic and there would be quality differences. If they were on their A game like we've seen them sometimes be, they would be amazing. Big issue is they chalked quality issues up to acceptable manufacturing tolerances and didn't take full ownership. With discs the smallest discrepancy makes a huge difference so they basically need to be perfect

Anyway, I really hope more Tyrants come out from somewhere. And also love the Ptero. Big fan of kastaplast and prodiscus also.

So. I may or may not have lost my is utility putter today. And I may or may not be typing this from the course. *May or may not*, just to clarify. If this were the case, would anyone be able to hook me up with a Scale to replace said disc that I may or may not have lost.

Daredevil has a realistic approach in that the same mold will fly differently in different plastics, and they account for that by just calling them by different names. No other manufacturer does this so it looks like they are pulling a fast one or something, when really they are making it easier for the consumer to know how the disc should fly. If they were more aggressive with marketing they could probably see a decent jump in their market share; the people who try their discs seem to like their discs.
