Paul, you mentioned earlier about the other pros you like. Climo and others.

My question is have you ever met and/or played a round of golf with Steve Wisecup?

Back when he was on top he was known as the consummate pro. His play, style and attitude was always top notch.

Paul ... I remember watching you after the BHMO last year practicing some really short, super high upshots around the practice basket and I remember thinking, the tournament is over, he's not in the finals, and he's still hucking discs around - I guess I was wondering what that was all about - were you just messing around, killing time or were you working on a shot you encountered during the round?

I guess part II of my question is do you normally practice trouble shots?

As an HB guy, were you an Oiler? Also, if you frequent the beach, do you prefer the North or South side breaks at the Pier (I'm south side myself). Thanks for your patience and time!

Have you ever tried throwing the dominator in champion plastic? if so what is your opinion on the disc?


(just seeing if the disc will increase in value in the future because it has been discontinued in that plastic)

I was thinking it was something along the lines of a set $ amount/disc sold. Say like 25-50 cents a disc. I don't really remember the numbers on that or if that is how they work it with every pro that has a signature disc but I think that is how it is done for some of them. That is not first hand knowledge...innova has yet to offer me a signature disc Also, I don't mean to be answering questions for Paul. If he is uncertain then I am sure what I have heard is questionable as he would know more about this than I would.

I believe Climo was quoted as saying he used to receive 25 cents per disc back in the day. And that every month he would receive checks from Innova for hundreds of dollars (or maybe it was thousands). I don't know if Innova still pays their signature pros this way, but it would be interesting to find out.

I would bet that Climo's deal is/was different than other pros. He's 'The Champ' after all. If he receives a percentage of sales or a fixed rate per disc, you can bet it's higher than most pros w/ sig discs.

Awesome you're doing this Paul. I'm the dude that filmed the infamous Jim Oats falling putt if you remember. I thought you handled that really well btw, especially with his comment on the next tee pad.

Question: Do you like watching vids of yourself play? If you do, here ya go:

In this article here, he references his salary saying:

"Under the terms of the deal, Climo gets a quarter per disc sold in addition to a monthly paycheck. "It started out at a little less than $1,000 a month, maybe a little over $1,000 in the summertime when sales are good," Climo said. "Now I'll get checks for around $4,000 a month in the summertime."

Asked MJ this as well, but what in your opinion are the types of discs/shots that are a must have for the average round of disc golf. I know it can vary some with what course and player ability, but just for a sort of standard.
