Re: Ask Dave D about Innova Here!!!
Hi Dave, I have 2 questions. First of all, who tests disc and determines whether they will be produced or not. Do you hold any kind of events like the "Discraft Ace Race" or do you or the sponsered players evaluate them? Second, And I don't want you to take this the wrong way, but I have noticed something odd about Innova. The better a disc is (and comming from an amatuer thrower), the more it costs. I have a CFR TL that I LOVE TO DEATH and it does whatever I want. However, If i ever lose it I'm screwed cause I can't shell out $20-30 for each disc. But it is one of the easiest to throw and the most forgiving. The pro plastic just doesn't do it for me. I have a pro firebird, pro teebird, and pro starfire that all 3 fly like beat up stingrays now, and the starfire has never even hit anything but grass and dirt. Have you considered making all those GREAT CFR discs as Candy, regular production discs. For me, I think it would be great if some of the CFR discs were regular production and you could still have the $25-45 CFRs as Champion Glow, Special Blend/Night Shift/CE, and/or Full Color.
Once again, I'm just a poor amatuer (in skill and money). I just think it would be better for the sport to make more discs available to younger, poorer, learning players. You could still have the CFRs and make more discs available for cheaper. Once again, I'm not trying to hit a nerve, I am just frustrated with losing my favorite discs and not having the money to replace them. I love Innova and what they do for the sport and I wouldn't be improving in the sport if it weren't for you and them. Thanks.
