Im not saying it will, but between Prehistoric, Fossil and (maybe, eventually) I could see this knocking out my Rocs. Thats a BIG maybe because Ive been Rocing it (see what I did there?) for so long, but the potential is certainly there...especially since RDG takes up a good amount of space in my bag already.

The toughest part wont be deciding if I will buy the Croc...it will be how many Crocs will I initially buy?

I think the only reason I stopped throwing them was that one day Davey Mac kept pulling discs out of my bag and asking "what's this for?" "why do you have this and an X-Clone?" yada yada yada. By the end of the night he had talked me into an Aviar/Roc/Cyclone/X-Clone bag and I stopped throwing a lot of discs I really liked.

I never pass up a chance to post that that disc, BTW. What were they thinking?

I think they translate well to the market today.

A little slower than most mid releases, a small head & a really comfortable, almost chunky grip.

I love the Croc and I look forward to getting these bad boys into the hands of Lightning newbies

Honestly, if I was in your shoes and had the ability to bring some of these back I'd be worried about the big diameter discs. A lot of those bad boys were "drivers" with 22+ cm diameters. I'm not sure if the game has a place for those anymore.

But whatever...you sold Stegos. I think you can sell anything!

I think there is some real potential there with the under 22 cm diameter discs like the Blackbird, the Bearcat, the B-25, the F-15 Eagle, the #2 Hyzer and the #2 Upshot. Those are solid molds that would stand up in today's game and somebody marketing them again should work.

Maybe even the Spitfire? It's big (legal to 185g I think) but it's the n00best disc ever. You can throw that thing nose up all day and the big diameter just sort of smooths it out and it glides out for a nice throw. When I started it was the only disc I could throw; everything else went straight up and then hard left. It was teh n00bsaver!
