Why doesn't Valerie Jenkins have her name on a disc?

Aside from the TL's why doesn't Valerie Jenkins have her name on the stock runs of any discs??

Avery jenkins - Destroyer
Mcbeth - Roc3
Schultz - Leopard , Beast
Climo - Teebird , Firebird , Roc, Aviar , Gazelle , etc.
Feldberg Had - Boss
Juliana Korver had - Aviar X , Valkyrie.


As a 3 time World champion i would start to wonder why they hadn't given me a pro model yet.


If this has been discussed before please link the thread and i will request a moderator lock the thread.

I think it has to do more with having a girls name on a disc. Its not that she doesnt deserve it

I know Avery was trying to push Innova to get a sig disc for her, but obviously it didnt work out.

I think the same can be said for Des Reading and Elaine King at Discraft. Both multiple time world champion winners, but as soon as a Male is 1x, he gets a sig disc

With the champ Tl being a regular run disc as well as in the bag of Jenkins it would seem fitting to just change the stamp to include her name and 3x World Champion.

The valkyrie became a "girl disc" as soon as JK name was on it sadly. Too many guys have a HUGE ego to throw a sig disc with a womans name on it. Why do KC pro aviars outsell JK aviars probably 10 to 1 yet in reguards to Discraft magnets the soft magnets sell at least equally if not higher than regular stiff magnets?

I've seen tons of guys with old JK Valkyries and JK Aviars, MOST of the disc golf playing world doesn't even notice the name on the disc or care who it is.
