Default Discraft needs to step their game back up'

"back in the day" I watched many a DC instructional videos and threw their discs from the wildcat, impact, flash, crush and all the normal stuff too with lots of great molds, solid plastics, then DGA which has killer models to compliment their line up.

On the DG Answer Man video Emac responded to a question basically saying they need to do more for their players and in general. He didn't get into it much being they have 10 years of history together but I am on his side on feel like this company his missing out.

Central Coast Disc Golf (CCDG) Has done more IMO to promote Peter McBride who is a hell of a player and I believe recently gone to legacy. Its a shame a company with such a history isn't trying to capitalize on the market that's here. People still are talking about the antique comet on this site!

I feel the same way. I have three discraft shirts and where them proudly but any more I would rather rep dynamic discs or innova. They aren't doing much in the way of innovation or marketing.

When I was first hooked on the game I used those Discraft instructional videos because they were the best videos out there. They got me buying Discraft. Their marketing used to be the best in the game.

Discraft is following the Lightning path. I don't know if they realize it or not. Lightning has great molds and good plastic. Who cares? May Discraft take note.

When you're most known for you mid range discs, chances are you're not going to be the first discussion point in disc golf.

Hadn't really given them much thought lately.
Legacy, MVP, Westside, Prodigy, Vibram; all up-and-coming.
Innova seems to be taking care of their top players.

Where is Discraft headed?????
