Look's like barsby is going to slide in on this one as the only current world champ with innova. I would be like asking for a lot now if I was barsby. Did you hear that barsby?!!
Harold, Hosfeld, Juliana, Des, Sarah Cunningham, Johnny Sias, Steve Wisecup, Crazy John, Barry, and Climo don't do anything for you? Let alone age-protected divisions.

Someone mentioned Paul having a lot of money and JT mentioned DC offering something special, is it possible they are giving Paul a discount on buying a share of the company? It's also been mentioned that maybe they offered something that gave him a more secure future, and a stake in the company would certainly fit the bill.

Prediction:

Barring injury. Paul will still finish with more top 10s more top 5 more top 3 more wins and more earnings than Jones in 2019 and 2020.

Kevin Jones future is still debateable at this point. When he wins an NT he can have a seat at the big boy table.

It's always been the archer, not the arrow. People who think McBeth will not be good because hes carrying different discs should probably revisit the starter pack challenge where he threw a ~1000 rated round woth 150 class dx discs.
Agree. Look at Paige Pierce. Made the switch to DD, did very well once she got to know her discs. I suspect McBeast will do well with his chosen Discraft (or whoever's) discs once he gets to know them.

Remember that McBeth had his bag stolen in the middle of a tournament, and with all-new discs almost won (lost on the first playoff hole).

Side note: if Madison Walker leaves Innova, would it not be more likely she goes to DD with her buddy Paige Pierce than to Lat64?

Someone already updated his wikipedia page to "He has an endorsement deal with (RIP) Innova Champion discs."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_McBeth

Also, question: Has anyone won a World Championship with two different sponsors? At least in the MPO division

That makes sense because the Hero bag isn’t even worth the cost in my opinion. I’m all about the backpack style bags and I’d rather carry the old school Innova bags with backpack straps than a Hero bag.
