She suggested a new blend for a putter and the Valkyrie was compensation for work she had done, be her own admission. Paige's first win with Discraft got her a sig Stalker. Val moved to Discraft the year after a win, and so she got a sig Thrasher. Elaine and Val's situations aren't comparable, so no irony.

The OP starts off with "crazy feminist", and even after you defending him he's spouting **** about "white knight feminists".......I would hope you see the irony.
Juliana Korver had a signature disc with Discraft! A Juliana Bower Stratus (her married name at the time). This was before she signed with Innova. People can still find these on eBay every now and then. Why Elaine King never had one is beyond me...
