What really is being tested?
A) How the disc plays in this configuration
B) ...or how much people are willing to pay for a 'limited' run disc?
I am all for growing/ supporting the sport I love by purchasing fund raiser discs, but really?
Dave, on another completely separate note, why did the champion boss go from stable/understable to overstable? Why is the original configuration not being made available? It seems the secondary market of collectors have these discs and those of us who loved how they ***originally came out of the mold, yet cannot afford $40 to $50*** are left wondering, why?
Again, I am not trying to anger anyone, but i have been wondering about this question since literally a week after the boss came out... Cheers to all...
Regarding test runs:
Plastic manufacturers often supply samples of materials to test. Results of these tests determines whether the materials are suitable and whether they will produce a quality product in the desired weight range. Tests may produce zero "usable" discs to a few dozen. Samples undergo various tests and generally end up being recycled or most often sitting in Dave's office taking up room. A small sample batch of materials just happened to be tested while the Roc was being manufactured and produced the "test run" of 160 Gummy Champion Rocs.
