Apparently they are putting quite a team together including some world champs. :shock:

So DD is starting to make their own discs now? Good idea to leverage their already huge disc golf brand. Who doesn't know who DD is that throws a disc with any seriousness?

I'm pretty interested to see how it all shakes out, more so with how this changes DD's relationship with Discraft/Innova.... I heard that Discraft is not very happy.

What players are you hearing are gonna be in the DD team?

I guess Latitude made the disc. No idea on actual names. Just guessing it would probably be guys they already have on board.

Rusco continues to build.

I guess there are multiple discs coming out. I'd imagine that Discraft and Innova are both frustrated. Oh well, I'm interested to see where he takes things. Probably taking multiple Discraft and Innova Team members with him as well.

Only 4 molds means mixed bags.
Probably.

Will DD continue to get special discs from Discraft?
Probably not.

Will Discraft quit selling to DD?
Probably not.

My sense on this is that Latitude may have been the best option for disc production if Innova and Discraft are running at or near production capacity. If Lat has invested in machinery etc and isn't running at capacity, they had more to offer than the big boys. Just a guess, though.

Should be interesting to see how this all plays out.

The Trespass is a wide rim, high speed, overstable driver with precision control and maximum distance. A very accurate driver, a must for the arsenal.
The Escape is a fairway driver designed to keep you in the fairway by keeping a true and consistent flight path from beginning to end of flight. Predictable flight characteristics power the Escape past all other fairway drivers. Perfect for all skill levels.
The Fugitive is the straightest flying midrange driver that holds any line you put it on. Pin-point accuracy and easy grip help for consistent release and accurate flights.
The Judge is your go to putter in all conditions. Very versatile disc that will hold any line and finishes straight on approach shots as well.

This is from Dynamic Discs

Yea dgcr has a picture or 2 of the proto. Doesn't look nearly as nice as a grip. I wonder if they will be able to come up with as good as a rain fly as grip did. To me the rainfly is the real selling point of the grip bag.

The 1st proto bag they had made was literally an exact replica of the Grip. I'm assuming once they get the kinks worked out that it will be an improved version of the Grip.
