First point to make:
AWESOME and congrats to Paul!

Second point to make:
Anyone trying to make this a Discraft vs. Innova thing needs to really sharpen their pencils on the statistical analysis. That 1057 rating includes rounds from July-October 2018 with Innova, and Feburary-June 2019 with Discraft. (No rated rounds November - January, what a slacker! ) Of course people are free to compare the old Innova rounds with the newer Discraft ones, but they all contributed to McBeth's current rating. The true constant, of course, is that P McB shreds it!

Third point:
A player's rating has as much to do with which rounds don't count as those that do count. With this update McBeth just dropped a 972 round and a 998 from June of last year, which certainly helps the average. But here's the really mind-boggling thing: the current rating includes zero rounds that rated under 1000. Over the past year, Paul threw exactly one round rated under 1000 -- second round at Masters Cup he went 989 -- and that round doesn't count because it's so far below his average! This milestone accomplishment isn't built on only the crazy mega hot rounds that get all the attention, but it is really a measure of average performance. McBeth has consistently thrown world class disc golf rounds. I'd be interested to know if any other player has ever (A) had a 989 or higher round dropped because it was so far below their average, or (B) had a rating that included more than 10 rounds, of which zero rounds rated under 1000. Both of those are amazing accomplishments on their own, and obviously those are the sorts of building blocks that go into the highest rating ever.

McBeth's average in 2018 rounds counting towards his current rating = 1054.19
McBeth's average in 2019 rounds counting towards his current rating = 1056.16

Those numbers, above, will not yield a 1057 rating, so I'm assuming you included the 989 round that people are saying was dropped?

Which would mean he is playing better with Disc Craft than he was with Innova. I am not sure if the improvement is really much of a difference. Maybe like a tenth of of a throw per round.

Two ratings points is insignificant to the point of being meaningless. Like you say, it's probably one throw every ten rounds or something like that. A 1054 player and a 1056 player are for all intents and purposes the same.

Take a look at Paul's previous years with ratings broken into those same time periods. The first half of the year has typically had more courses on tour with significant real and artificial OB than courses played in the last half of the year. Excessive OB artificially boosts ratings overall which will help the highest rated players who avoid more of the penalties.
