Obviously you didn't know why I made that post......

Lat64 is basically a better option than most anything produced in the US at this time.

we all know he won't be going to prodigy........and all those "champs" aren't using only prodigy

I also assume both the manufacturer and Dave liked each other.....meaning Dave probably had them at the top of the list to begin with.

I understood what you said, I was just saying something else... I know he's not going to Prodigy and I didn't intend "champs" to glorify Prodigy and its players Just using them as an example to point out that a "complete lineup" isn't always what 'top professional disc golfers' are looking for when they are considering sponsors.

After Discraft the US options for complete lineups dwindle and Lat64 is definitely the next best manufacturer with more than a complete lineup.

Until recently......months not year ago....having a complete lineup was a pretty big deal.

Offering shares in a company will get a lot of players to commit...even with 1-2 discs...but this is a new thing.

It is a good thing for Lat 64 as i am sure even being based in Europe expanding sales in the US market has got to be there number 1 goal. getting a premiere player like Borg will def. help them gain exposure over here.

I would think signing with DD would conflict with Dave's Huk Lab sponsorship, which I assume is still in place.

Regardless, www.davefeldberg.com isn't up anymore, his Twitter hasn't been updated in years, and Lat64's website doesn't say anything about a relationship. Where is the dude? Remember when he was on Conan O'Brien?!

Where is he?

AZ, attending Paul Ulibarri's wedding. Getting ready for the season. Practicing for the Memorial, I'm sure. It'll be interesting to see what he'll be throwing there.
