Re: Ask Dave D about Innova Here!!!
accidentalroller, the suggested retail price range for hotstamped CFR is currently $20 - $30. We sell them to the dealers for less than normal candy prices. This is a way for the tournaments to get sponsorship. We could lessen the suggested retail to $15 - $25, but the tournaments would not make as much per disc. On the other hand, they might, as you suggest, sell more of them and thus make just as much or possibly more. We do not want to take the CFRs from the tournament promoters as it is one of the few ways they have to get sponsorship revenue, but lowering the suggested retail price might be a good alternative. As for testing: I have a group of five former World Champions, plus our Innova team members that do the testing. I usually am the one to decide if they will be produced or not. That decision is based on a number of factors besides how the disc flies. Not only does it have to fly well, it has to do something, or be something different than what we already have. And we have to be able to produce it without too much trouble in terms of molding, material, and hotstamping.
By far, the most important part of any shot is what is happening in the last split second as the disc is pulling itself from your grip. Focus there. It's the key.
