The mailbag is for subscribers only, which helps keep me committed to writing it every week. It will reward subscribers with a weekly column they can count on. And it will allow us to offer a free one-month Mini subscription — which includes access to our Discord server, bonus Upshot podcast segments, exclusive articles, the Cash Line newsletter, and more — for the best question, email, or comment we get and publish in the Mailbag. If you’re already a subscriber, you get a free extra month (or a discount). If you’re not, you can come in and check out the benefits.
You can email me anytime at email@example.com with questions, comments, ideas — whatever you’ve got.
Q: What is your opinion on Innova re-releasing the most popular Discmania molds as “new” Innova discs? I have pretty mixed feelings about it and would love to hear your thoughts. On the one hand, it makes total business sense. Those molds were (and are) incredibly popular, and since they own the molds, why not release them? On the other hand, it gives me a real sour feeling for a couple reasons. First is the fact that part of the reason for the split was that Innova wasn’t able to dedicate enough time to making those molds for Discmania (but is happy to make the time to make them for themselves). Second is the whole naming process. They could have at least tried to be subtle and left off the “original fairway disc” and “original midrange disc.” I’d also love to know what Jussi and the folks at Discmania think about it.

A: Discmania is unlikely to come out and say anything about this, but do we really need to get a statement from them to know how they feel about this?
