Wow, harsh. I didn't mean to ruffle so many feathers and for realz didn't mean any disrespect to McBeth. His a world champion, a great player and seems like an all around great guy from the little that I talked to him when he was in town. He deserves all that he gets, no doubt. No hatin from me, sorry if it was taken that way.
I thought that the point of my post was clear, but maybe it wasn't
that was my surprise at the fact that obviously Dave D. okayed it and I'm sure that champions past have asked for a champ roc and been denied b/c champ rocs have been a USDGC exclusive item for so long. You know others must
have asked for a production champ roc in the past and been shot down, it makes just makes sense, right? People have been wanting premium rocs as long as premium plastic has been around. We finally got stars and now it looks like we'll get champs.
I'm just really, really surprised that Dave would a) change his griplock stance on champ rocs being USDGC only and b) when they do get put into production, finally, let them be a sig disc immediately upon release. I haven't been playing that many years, but it seems like when sig discs are released they are already models/plastic in regular production and then get a sig stamp added to them later, except for KC pro plastic of course. I could be wrong about that tho, no doubt.
I was really surprised when I saw that disc and maybe I worded my opinions too strongly. I'm way more surprised by Dave D's decision to run these than anything. That's all I was meaning to say.
