It was more of a video to show the drivers he's been testing out. He made it pretty clear which ones were making the bag for sure, and others he still wasn't sure on yet. It will take some time for him to figure it out for sure. Cool to see what molds he's trying though. We should be thankful to get anything at all this early into the transition.

The Mantis surprised me, i only have one Ti Mantis. . and it΄s super domey and moves alot right to left for me.

The Mantis Paul throws here seems flat and goes straight. . .and more distance than the Force?!!!

And he throws the smal rim Undertaker further than the Force. . WOW

I love to see him throw EVERY mould in every plastic. . very fun to watch

And if you can, trowing everything is a fun way to build a bag. . .i have +300 discs but only 20 in the bag hehe

He's still trying a lot of stuff. Seems the force, undertaker, and heat are the only ones that have a set place in his bag. He even states a few times "I'm not really sure what this will do for me, still just trying it out". If I had to guess, the predator, mantis and nuke will join the first 3.

Remember, it's "Building a Bag", not a typical ITB video series.

He throws them with significantly different lines, the faster drivers he's super low to the ground, the slower ones he really airs out. Also, the mantis has some pretty incredible glide and underrated distance potential.

This is why I won't believe any of the "In Paul's Bag" stuff until Las Vegas and the Memorial. Even then, I expect a third or more of his bag to change by mid-season. Seeing him throw on golf lines will be totally different than on an open field.

Still, it's interesting to see him throw this stuff. What I'm really curious about is if he would benefit from some older, special discs. For example, he referenced that glow Z Crank. I had a clear Z with dome but high PLH which I'm convinced even Paul could love. Likewise, a clear Z Nuke that has high PLH that is by far both my most overstable AND longest Nuke. Something like that, or a Cryztal Z Nuke, could do well though might also be harder to find in the stock runs. Surely he's getting some input from other Discraft pros on this, and hopefully getting to try some of their worn plastic instead of just throwing discs off the shelf.

Next week, it would be sweet to see him trying out some Wasp-tooled Buzzz or old-school Cryztal Buzzz, or that kind of thing. From a marketing standpoint, I see the benefit of throwing standard discs in current production, but showing the potential of past runs only goes to show Discraft has always been a disc golf big dog, and I can't see how that's a bad thing.

I hope for a final part in this series where he talks about why some discs made his bag a others did not.

For now we know that he has 4xForce, one or more undertakers. . and probably one Predator in his bag

...and we know that demand for Glow Cranks will spike
