If you continue reading in the thread, it is stated that Legacy has already made it clear their discs are made by an outside company. So that rumor is retarded.

I'll wager that this titanium plastic will not be very different than the Goldline that Lat64 has already been turning out...

Still, I will likely buy a Titanium Buzzz, just because I'm a Buzzz lover. I'd love to see what they could do with the Cyclone, too.

somehow I don't see it making it into the Cyclone mold. I wouldn't mind seeing that. a Titanium Challenger would be interesting for driving though.

Would love to see a Titanium Comet...but don't see that happening anytime soon. A Titanium Nuke would be ok I guess :lol:

I think speculation is a bit far reaching about which discs would benefit or suffer from the TI treatment because nobody has even fondled the plastic. When some discs of the same general description like wide rimmed drivers behave exactly the opposite with dome height variations between individual discs it is pretty inaccurate to state any claims when one has no data on how TI changes dome and PLH on any mold. Who knows how the TI plastic behaves in different types of discs? It may be great or suck in each mold or be one or the other in some molds and something else in others. A bit too unpredictable if you ask me. My dos centavos.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Nobody has fondled it? That may be overstating it a bit.

As to speculation, don't internet discussion boards thrive on speculation? Wild speculation is the mother's milk of the uninformed.

For any mold which fits well in your hand or for which you have had success with in any plastic, a new plastic formula or blend is exciting. The shape of the mold controls the basic flight characteristics of a disc. The plastic which gets pumped into a mold, in all its possible variations, controls the relatively small details which matter so much to us.

Say, for pure speculative example (after all how would I know?) that one of the molds coming out in Titanium is a Nuke, which I love. Whatever it does is likely to be useful to me. Variations of a beloved theme may well be beloved as well. How it will break in cannot be known by anyone until it happens. I am looking forward to testing them. I already carry at least 6 Nukes. I can probably find a way to fit in another if I like it. More if I love it.

Nukes and Z Buzzzes are staples in my bag and i sure am intrested in seeing what TI will do to them. Nate Doss doesn't post here so for us non team members not getting them to fondle or throw is a bit of an issue. DGCR is speculation site more than DGR where some try to be informed. This site was created to gain and spread information about how discs behave after all.

Okay let's be real. We all "know" that the first disc out in this plastic will be the Nuke, Buzzz and Stalker. Stalker is slightly less likely than the Buzzz & Nuke. DC's new deluxe beginner pack now includes a Nuke (Nuke, A-SS, Buzzz, Focus + Bag). We may even see a Titanium A-SS very soon.

stalker is a definite as well as something for emac and doss. the discs released in titanium first will be discs to commemorate each worlds winnings from emac,paige and nate.
always looking for:
flat pink/red barstamp buzzzs, ce aviars, pearly pro candy fb's, pearly champion gators (fr or stock stamp),

I'd probably get my first predator if it comes out in Ti. Would probably have to buy a buzzz too.
