Entropy is a putter and Hawkeye is a fairway and the Hawkeye was first released 2022, so there are no 21 halos
Based on the pdga specs I was willing to believe it's the same mold. Now you have the man himself speaking out and saying it's a different disc.
We now need a solid reason that dunipace would lie about that when the demand for a halo FD would be plenty to sell them out.
The one thing I can think of is the manufacturer name change. Why did they switch the dm originals to have the manufacturer listed as "innova pro shop" ?
There could be a legal/pdga approval reason they had to create a separate manufacturer for those discs. And if they wanted to release/approve the FD under "innova champion discs" they had to claim it was a different mold altogether.
But I wouldn't put it on DaveD to make an open faced lie. I work hard to maintain my naiveté
30s into this latest video Dave D. is now calling it the old FDMy theory. Hailey king wasn’t supposed to say it was a halo FD, but she did. Oops. Innova marketing strategy was to say it’s a different mold, which is what Dunipace is now saying. It’s not really a big deal either way, whether he lied or not.
Wish I could retroactively shove that video in every person's face who gave me grief on reddit. Those were the same people who kept on referring to Dave's remarks about it being a completely new mold.
Pulled the trigger on a star Hawkeye. Came in today, penned 163. Pretty domey with the blizzardyish looking rim. Kinda slick feeling tbh, not like Z plastic by any means, but not the grippiest. Can't wait to toss it around. Unfortunately it looks like Siberia outside currently :\
I haven't thrown the Champ Hawkeye, but the Halo I did throw was very similar in flight to the DM molded C/S-FDs. I've also thrown a Star Dark Rebel and that was much more what I remembered an S-FD flying like versus the Star Hawkeye.i recently bought and threw the dark rebel in champ plastic (dong rebel stamp) and its very similar/analogous to a 5th run C-Line FD.
A little dome-ier, glide-er, and less stable version of old school champ plastic FD. But its still an awesome FD for those that like FD.
I bagged 6th runs (a little flatter, faster, and a touch more OS at the end than 5th runs) and 6th runs and lost my 2nd to last original innova-discmania made 5th run and finally had to try a replacement and was relieved to see that the dark rebel (dong stamp) is a good-ole innova made Discmania replacement.
now i'm going to try some hawkeye F2's to see if its a good FD replacement but even cheaper.
