Oh and the names given to these discs are as simple (basic, uninspired?) as you can imagine. Maybe they are temporary names?

Interesting. That looks like it's about a 12 on Innova's speed scale..

Looks like star plastic too. Damn they've been hiding this for almost a year.

EDIT: JHizzle where did you encounter this little gem?

Here goes nothing, I'd like to thank my sponsors Innova Champion Disc, Dynamic Discs and Grip EQ but with a new disc company I have to drop one or some of my sponsors. I'm have turned away multiple offers and I have found the one that fits my future the best. I had a great 2012 season with only BETTER things to come in 2013. I will be a part of Team Innova and Grip EQ stay tuned for our newest items coming in 2013.

I do and so do alot of other people. GG is a great player and person. Not to mention the fact he can throw his putter over 500'. NBD, right?

I openly wept a few years ago when GG left Gateway, I just sat there holding a stack of baby blue Illusions.

You never really mentioned why. Is there a reason other than he'd be leaving Innova? There are lots of good opportunities out there. If GG went with L64, he'd probably be associated with Dynamic, who seems to be headed in the right direction for promoting all the great things about this sport while supporting some great tournaments.

Innova has never had a problem taking players from other teams. Innova might always have the largest number of molds but it will be intersting to see Innova as the number 2 name in disc golf, if it happens.
Could that date be accurate on that disc?

I dunno, there's worse names out there than Execute. Just a short list of terrible names: Orc, Boss, Xtra, Xpress, Freak, Boatman, XXX, and tons more.

Boatman sounds better in Finnish.

The translation from the Finnish name could have been better but somehow the ferryman or the grim reaper for more modern times could have been a poor business decision possibly turning away some potential customers while attracting others. And i'm talking of not literate but marketing type translation here.
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.
