I'm sure it will be a clean design strategy. The Big Z Roach is my favorite example of an excellent mold not selling as well because players don't want that cartoon stamp.

Their production Z design has been such a classic look for a while now. I intentionally avoid Titanium because of the obnoxious stamps. Tone it down.

I will say I really like my Big Z Zombee stamp. Most are awful though. The Big Z Punisher & Machete stamps are especially terrible.

I will never understand how stamps can go so wrong.

OG Gold line stamps were minimalist and classy. And now they are an abomination.

With any luck Discraft will be improving their stamps and not wind up with a Titanium 2.0 type of stock stamp.

Well they must have seen players including a few of the Pro sponsored ones wiping the Picture part of the Roach Big Z stamps and a few other Big Z stamps as well Meatball style Comet comes to mind, the Comet used to have a cool Comet for the stamp like the old Elite X did. The 3 best were Z, ESP and reular X for stamps, Soft X was like Jawbreaker for stamp a bit boring, but still nothing wild. The Worst were The Big Z stamps that needed a redo soon anyhow once all the old stock without modern flight numbers was sold off from Discraft Warehouse. As did a few Ti discs need a redo especially the Wasp and buzz that had this odd digital look to the insects. Pro D was cool and most except the Roach in Pro D was just a smaller version of the Roach in Big Z that was stamped in deep on some Pro D to the point you could not get it out, a stamp groove would show up on the disc.

I throw a big z Roach with an unwapped stamp. I couldn't care unless what the stamp looks like. I only care about how the disc flies and the feel of the plastic and the mold itself in my hand.

I personally like the cartoon stamps even though I don't like Big Z plastic. I "get" to be serious all day at work, I don't feel the need to be that way when I am relaxing.

Seriously. If a weed reference bugs you how do you even put up with 80% of disc golfers?

OG Gold Line stamps were hands down the best in the game. How they ever went away from that look is beyond me.
