Some respect for Ken Climo, with Innova Discs, created his own special blend of plastic, known as KC Pro. Several discs are for sale in KC Pro, including the Aviar, Roc, Tee-Bird, Cheetah, Firebird, Banshee, Gazelle, Eagle. Set the standard.

Absolutely! Good call
I'd bet the 10x and 11x era of KC is where PMB got some inspiration for his line.

Thanks for this, it really made me laugh this morning.

Seriously Casey, you should really consider blocking the submit button on your screen. Your constant wrongness about the history of this sport is appalling.

Th JK Aviar-X i kind of Julianas own disc, and the YETI is Jay "Yeti" Readings . . .but then again its still an Aviar just in a special plastic or shape.
I think the Nexus Firefly Nate Sexton 2019 is the closest Innova has come to make a "own line" typ disc. . its not an Aviar with Nates name on it. . .its a Firefly
You again can argue that the LUNA is just a ROACH withs Pauls name on it

So Innova do make special variants for their pros . . .sort of

Many of the Tour Series molds are worked up with input from the named person on the mold. For example, Holly Finley specifically asked for her Roadrunner to be in weights in the 160s (thank you, Holly!).

Hannah Leatherman's input led Innova to tweak her Swirly Star Terns to start out more stable than normal so they'd season in (i.e. get flippy) more slowly (that's in one of her ITB videos, I'm not making it up).

And so on and so forth...

These Innova examples are so far removed from what Paul and Discraft are doing with Paul McBeth Discs.

Let's be clear here. EMac was one DD's first sponsored pros when they entered the market. He was not a founder. "Founder" implies he fronted some dough.

We really need to work on your verbiage.
