I didn't want to post this as it's own thread because I don't know if it's even close to being true. But.......

Had a discussion with a few buds and one of them said he "heard" Innova was prepping for a possible brink and mortar store franchise similar to how Dynamic Discs is doing it. Has anyone with real insight heard anything about this? I could see how Discraft might ride the Paul factor into a store franchise (plus their name sounds better for a store imop) but "Innova Disc Golf" stores sound pretty cool too. lol..

I could see maybe a store or 2 but a whole franchise doesn't seem sustainable. Plus it would hurt established innova retailers. I for one would not like this competition for my local store.

They should call it 'Disc Golf United'. I think South Carolina would be a good location.

For argument's sake, I doubt they would put stores in established areas. But I digress...not worth debating too much until something official happens.

I thought those were when I saw them online, same thing as the McPro. Now question does Ricky actually use this mold in his bag or is it an attempt to move a plastic that not a lot really bought since Paul McBeth changed sponsors? I feel Dave is just trying to push the plastic unless we see Ricky actually using these discs.

The Tour Pro Aviar did not sell super well compared to the McPro but then at the end of the McPro Run when Paul announced he was leaving, people bought the discs up hoping to sell them later for big money. I did not think that people would be able to sell the McPro Aviar for big money once I saw the Tour Series Aviar 3 in the McPro plastic and a limited run KC Pro Aviar 3. It seemed that Innova kept making the plastic in the mold to satisfy the Pro sponsored player that still wanted the ability to buy a slick McPro Disc.

DX Big Bead might work for you then, if not then go with the Wizard. There is a 99.999999999% chance that you will find the perfect plastic with them.

You might have to feel 100 wizards before you do, and you might never find the same one again, but you’re right!


(I love my wizards but Gateway’s plastic mix labelling is kind of hilarious)
