I wonder how much it costs to buy a molder? My uncle works for a major plastics manufacturer... this makes me want to just start making discs.

I talked to the VP of marketing at EMSCO a few weeks ago and, true to his word, he sent me a set of their discs:

Driver:

Mid:

Putter:

The Driver and Mid appear to share the same flight plate, but their wings are different (which is what one would hope), although, the rim width on the driver is really itsy bitsy and would likely have a fairly similar flight compared to the mid. All three of these discs are DOMEY AS HELL. The plastic reminds me of a WalMart patio chair...it's very, very stiff and slick. A good tree hit would fuck up one of these discs forever. All three of the discs appear to be warped with wavy wings and lots of flashing on the discs or partially-removed flashing corkscrewing here and there.

Overall, these are right where I thought they'd be. This would be the type of set for a player that sees a lower price point than an Innova or Discraft starter set and doesn't have any other experienced disc golfer with them when they're buying their first discs. I don't think any of us would ever consider throwing these. Not sure when (if) I'm going to have a chance to throw them. Time permitting, I'll see what next weekend allows.

Honestly? It reminds me of a Phenix.

Edit: The disc as a whole reminds me of a Phenix. I'd have to dig it out again to take a look at the wing.

The PLH on the driver looks low as hell.

All of them seems to have a very high profile? Did you try them out?

I don't know when I'm going to have a chance to try them out. I'm hoping this weekend. I'm mulling over the option to not throw them and save myself some disgust.

They handed you some new (and free?) plastic and you're not even going to take it out and toss it around some?
That's some resolve you've got there man. I don't think I could resist.

It's not resolve, it's a complete and total lack of time. As soon as I get a chance to leave my house to do something not work or family related, I'll give them a toss. The weather here was fanfuckingtastic all week and I only left the house to get the mail. At this point, I'll accept whatever pity you'd care to furnish.
