Looks like a cross between the Coyote and the Goblin?

Had a chance yet to feel this disc Blake?

it seems they really are trying to find a mold that fills the gap between putter and midrange (when there are putters that fill this gap fine :roll: )

or are they really trying to find a good beginner friendly one disc disc? ;-)

i wonder if some sort of mold mishap with the globin lead to the sudden release of the skeeter?

It's kinda hard to blame the disc companies for all the new discs (they are a company trying to make a profit). Every time they release a new disc, a couple of weeks later that disc is everyone's main driver/mid/putter and the saviour of their game. A month later they are all back to their original bag and the new disc is gone by the wayside (with a few noteable exceptions). When we stop buying all the new discs that come out, they will stop making so many that overlap each other. I don't know about everyone else, but putting a new disc in my bag generally makes me a little worse for a while. On the other hand, it's fun to try new stuff, so what the heck, they make some green and I have a new $15 toy.

I think they're trying to reach the crowd who want to carry 1 disc, or 2 discs. 1 super ultra long range driver and one disc to putt and approach with. They're trying to reach primarily the rec crowd.

I think most of it is they can count on the new players to buy the "new best thing". How many newbs do you see throwing all new star and champ plastic? They will have a wraith, skeeter and t-rex, and say to you, "a roc? what kind of disc is that? or "a teebird, why arent you throwing a wraith and t-rex? Part of it is the new plastic fix and also some kind of confidence boost by having the disc that is marketed as the latest and greatest. You have to figure that the high percentage of dg players never will visit a forum like this. Most will go to the store and try to improve there game by purchasing plastic they can't throw correctly. I did the same thing. One of my first discs was a wraith, talk about depressing. You can't fault the company, as they are driven by profit margin. The thing to do is when you are at the course or at the store, explain the different discs to those just starting and tell them about dgr. Let them borrow your old leopard or roc and show them the proper form. I think this will keep more players in the game because they won't get frustrated and quit. The ability to see progress (that first birdie, first long straight drive, first long duece or putt) is what keeps people playing, not the huge crashing hyser when you are trying to throw a disc you don't have the arm for. The more people we have playing the better it is for all of us. Just my .02

i had a guy last nite at dubs pull me aside and ask to trade me the new wraith he bought from me....for a leopard. He said..."i was reading and the wraith is way too much of a disc for me...leopard or cheetah is what i should be throwing.." so i gave him a dx leopard(166) for the wraith he initially bought from me....dx wraith(175)

i try telling people what discs will do but yes...they want the latest and greatest..
