To a point yes you're right, And the ss system means that that disc feels like the original after being broken in and the os is what it is. You're veering away from the point of why I posted this thread. And if this is such a joke then stop posting in my thread.

Isn't making a bunch of pointless molds the point of this thread? the nuke SS isn't needed. Just beat in a nuke. The Surge SS is useless also. And the Avenger SS, a beat in x avenger is way better. The buzzz SS is hardly less stable than a normal buzzz.

valid point. Just sayin they aren't slappin on a whole new name on something and calling it gold. Like calling the nuke os an atom bomb or something and saying that it's a huge breakthrough in disc golf

And the avenger ss I will only say from experience that is a great roller disc and I own one since I didn't have an already beat in avenger or other disc to roll with

Being able to birdie a 475ft hole just by rolling it wouldn't make a disc suck imo.

Just read this whole thread and they have answered your "question" at least three times. Inovva, dc, gateway, whoever, are all in business to make money. They would not make them if people were not buying them. The end.

You can convince yourself that one company has superior consistency, but all these companies are using generally the same equipment and level of materials so they are all going to encounter similar problems at some point. There is no doubt in my mind that a manufacturer could make a 100% guaranteed consistent product, and that if there was enough players out there willing to pay the astronomical price it would cost they would absolutely be doing it right now.

It is not that they are trying so hard. It is that they are selling all these discs. Most of the disc golf business is not from people like us, or anyone that even knows of these forums. Look at what the people carrying 1-3 discs are using. It is almost always something like a destroyer, vulcan, archon, or one of the other innova warp speeders. These people want the farthest flying disc, they don't understand it won't go that far for them, they just see the chart. That is why innova keeps putting out understable warp speeders.. that way the beginners atleast have a chance at throwing it.
