What's up with the Discraft haters? I've heard more than a couple people say stuff along the lines of "screw Discraft, why would I throw that?" I never hear people saying the same stuff about Innova. I think I have about an equal amount of both, and a few Gateway discs thrown in, and I have some discs I like, some I don't, but no brand stands out significantly over the other. The only real differences I see are the feel of their plastics, but even then, I don't understand the anti-Discraft crowd. And incidentally, I don't hear many anti-Gateway sentiments, other than people complaining about the variations between all the different runs.

I'm not partial to any 1 company....i was merely chuckling that someone had created this dye job. This photo was just interesting to see.....whereas not a direct attack at Discraft....i will revise the subject...

hehe, yeah, I didn't think you were saying you hated discraft, I'm just wondering why there are those out there that do.

Once upon a time a Monster ran into a mob of Avengers, they attacked him with their pet Leopard, the Buzzz was all around the city that even the Wizards had to use ear plugs. :D

All that picture shows is another innova lover playing with himself when he should be practicing. :D Arguing about which company is better helps to pass the time during these snowy winter months.

I live in Michigan, but throw primarily Innova discs. I will, however, always take advantage of throwing any disc that someone is showing me, albiet with their permission. If I found a workhorse disc that suited me better than what I currently throw, and it just happens to be made from another company, I wouldn't hesitate to buy a few more and switch over. There are a couple guys on the league here that kinda have that "piss on Innova" additude and throw all Discraft. I'm sure there are dedicated Innova loyalists in California too.

edit: Good point, Mothrows. Screw Discraft and their shitty discs! :wink:

i throw all discraft. that being said its not becuase i hate innova but becuase its whats working for me right now. even here in michigan there are lots of discraft haters. there are certainly more gateway haters(me being one of them) but hey, whatever you throw best is what you should throw be it innova, discaft, gateway, or lightning.

Almost everyone in my area throws Innova and will talk down about the other companies. I love whipping them with my "inferior" equipment. 8)
