I agree, James Conrad wanted an Aviar mold he could use more for putting as the JK he had to keep a spare Newer in disc for putting for non approach putts. Now James can use his newer putters when they get beat in more for regular putting duties as JC putters are more stiff putters that then get beat to JK type plastic flex when new.

Women disc golfers might be under appreciated for sure but ignored? There’s an awful lot of fellas that I hang with that can easily name as many FPO players as MPO players. I wouldn’t exactly call that being ignored.
That's pretty weak from the Terr Bear. If anything, a thousand dudes whining about Pierce speaks testament to how much FPO has grown. 1000 dudes whine about where any major player is going/throwing. Paige isn't getting flack for being female, she's getting flack for being e l i t e. She's made it. Nobody gives a flip what Dustin Keegan is doing for example.

I hope she does real well with her new contract!
I dunno, I designed a disc golf course but I didn't design the baskets, saws or shovel I used to make it.

She's the alpha and omega in terms of how that disc is supposed to be so I'd say she's deserving of a design credit.

You didn't tell someone you wanted a course that played a certain way, you designed it.

She will tell someone how she wants the disc to fly and feel and they will design that.

I don't know what shovels and saws have to do with it.

It's impossible to win this one, bud. I've tried. People just won't understand.

Just give up on arguing who "designs" the molds, but start giving credit to the injection molding experts for the tournaments & titles won using their plastic

If Paige didn't design her disc than Barak Obama definitely did not write this book:
