There was a video on Instagram yesterday of Ricky field testing a whole pile of assorted innova discs. aviarx3's, gators, caimans, etc... so you know hes trying to figure out that Harp slot.

There was even a short clip of him forehanding an R-pro pig!

I would love him to use the Pig, if only so that we get more plastic options

Man, the Harp is just such an amazing disc. I personally haven't found anything else that comes close to matching it.

Maybe Innova will just make a copycat version for him....

It was a “my story” on instagram, meaning after 24 hours it disappears. And yes the harp is unique to itself. I do like how some pros will try out older and forgotten about molds, and make them work well.

I’d still rather be bagging a zone though! Just my 2 pennies!

So. . Pauls "testing new discs" is a Jomez video with 95tn views
Rickys is a Instagram video that disappears in 24h

Just WHY?!?

He was forehanding an r-pro pig on his instagram.

I'm thinking it boils down to player marketability.

Innova's had a dozen years to make McBs name the most noticeable name in DG, and did a good job doing it.

This is the difference between Paul and Rick.

Paul understands marketing incredibly well. He’s not just trying to be the best disc golfer. He’s trying (and is) to be the face of disc golf. Totally different mindset than Ricky.
