No.

He already has the Buzzz as a signature disc. Wasps are not different enough from the Buzzz to make sense from a financial sense. He wants to make as much money as possible on the discs, so he is not likely to choose to have two signature discs that are relatively close to the same flight. The sales will just compete with each other.

My bet is on Luna, Zeus or Anax or all three. These are the discs he had a direct hand in the making of these. Big part of his move to discraft besides the money I think was he wanted to me more involved in the developing/ production side of the business.

I am more curious what his last two molds are going to be that he said were going to be released this year. One will be a mid (which he doesn't even seem to throw anymore), but they already have a really good beadless and beaded mid. I have no idea what the last mold will be, maybe a speed 7 fairway?

He probably already had another co-designed disc in works anyway, that will probably be it.

Good points. McBeth has his putter-replacement (Luna), Thunderbird-replacement (Anax), and Destroyer-replacement (Zeus). The Zone and Buzzz seem to have replaced his old Roc3.

So what still needs replacing from his Innova days? Maybe a Firebird-'ish' mold?

Isn't the raptor discraft's fb? I would say discraft dosn't have a direct answer to the roadrunner. I know Paul is throwing the avenger ss for a roller but it's a -3 turn vs -4 turn that he used to throw in the RR. Maybe he'll want some that will get down quicker for low ceiling rollers.

Maybe a special run of 5x Zones, but I don't think it will be a full-time McBeth-stamped production disc.

His first disc with a 5X stamp should be his new midrange. Give those a chance to sell crazy before throwing the 5X stamp everywhere.
