NEW Name for a Midrange.

Right now I'm thinking about a new name for a mid-Range between the Element and Warrior and could use some advice,,, would recycling the old Name Scout work?
Is it COOL enough??
We may recycle the other 2 names as well one day ( I always liked the names Apache & Chief).
Since we discontinued these names over 4 years ago would it be a good or bad idea to use them for NEW discs?

Also forgot too mention,,, we ran some flexible "S" Elements and Warriors for Ice bowl this year. If you're club is not running and Ice bowl this year ,,, it's not too late.

Retooled discs and NEW CLEAR Evolution

Ok,,, It's been a while since I had a chance to blog.
It's not like I didn't have anything to write as there have been many changes to existing models, we are running a NEW CLEAR E polymer and there were some great performances out of Nikko and John E towards the end of the year.

I'll start with some of the mold changes and try and get something written each day to get everyone caught up and informed about new projects.

We retooled the dimples off the Speed Demon making the wing LESS concave,,therefore LESS overstable, more gyroscopic and a little faster.
We also left some texture on the wing to reduce the drag, but it is not noticeable in the hand.
Right now we have the CLEAR E in the retooled Speed Demon but may experiment with some of the older E blends at some point.
The Spirit and Speed Demon are much closer now than before with the speed demons nose ( leading edge) being a little smaller. Combined this with the textured wing and less concave wing,,,,and it makes it fly faster and a little less over stable than the spirit.

We also retooled the top used for the BLURR, Blast and Rage to make them less overstable as well,,, but have not ran it in anything but the light weight "S" polymers. ( available at Marshal street)
We will be working the NEW CLEAR E into these models as well as the Sabre and Blaze soon!

Thanks to everyone for all the support this past year and we look forward to providing the players with cool new products in 2009.
