Nope.

I wonder if it was a one time thing originally made get a single top level sponsored player off using a similar putter disc from Discmania molded by Innova?

I was sure these would be a big hit. Copy of the best selling putter the last few years, great name, sponsoring arguably the most popular pro out there. I guess between Nate not being on tour and on commentary to sell it and availability issues it just hasn't had a chance to take off.

I agree - Nate was quickly forgotten by many, proclaiming Big Beri was better, etc. Jomez made the "why are trees" collector box available days ago, only 300, and it still hasn't sold out (compare to Sky Rider, Cloud Breaker, etc.) I gotta say, the price was gross($250), and had it been half that, it might have made a difference.

Why buy the copy when you can the putter it was based off of for a fraction of the price?

Yea, Nate shared a teaser of them on his instagram story. I kind of thought we'd have seen them in time for Halloween what with the popularity of devils night glow rounds. Not that they won't instantly sell out no matter when they're released.

The plastic felt better in my opinion than anything offered by Discmania. I wish innova would make all of their putters in it.

These were on my short list of discs I wanted to try, but I've given up.

...especially now that my alternate choice of the P2 is available.

I was really interested when the Firefly was first announced (like the P2, plus a chance to support Nate Sexton? You've got my vote, Innova!). But it took FOREVER between the time it was announced (February 2019?) and when it went on sale (summer?). I think Innova really did a disservice by hyping a disc way too far in advance of being able to actually, you know, BUY one.

I moved on to buying 4 or 5 Rekos in 2019, and them to 4 Prodigy PMS's about a month ago. Truthfully, Firefly never entered my mind either time. I felt a little burned by Innova, and not that interested in the disc.

That's my story. Sticking to it. But, probably changing putters in 2021 (!).
