Yields an interesting thought - can top pros expense back the cost of buying an old stock discs they prefer/may increase their chance of success? I assume no since it’s more advantageous for the company to have their pros throwing/winning with new molds. But this would sure as hell save the pros the trouble of selling their allotment of new discs to fund the old stock.

It feels like Paige is not the type to really throw much in the off season. .her start to 2019 was not great and she said that she was behind on practice in the off season.

Now she NEEDs to put in the hours throwing new discs, maybe new discs she never thrown before

Her start in 2020 will be super interesting

Her signature dusc was the Ti Stalker. I hope she renames it if it's her signature disc again.

Apart from that, I don't know.

Her DD bag is quite simple..

Deputy-Moonshine Deputy-Marshall-Suspect
EMac Truth-Verdict-Gatekeeper
Convict-Felon-Thief
Defender-Ballista pro

Can΄t really see a Discraft or Innova disc that feels and flies like the Deputy. .. the rest is fairly easy to replace

It's cringeworthy, and old, but it is definitely her DC bag. She even calls the Buzzz " the best midrange ever".

Z Force
Z Surge SS
Z Avenger SS
Elite Z Flash
Elite X Crush
Z Stalker
Z XL
Z Predator
Z Buzzz
Glo Buzzz
ESP Zone
Pro-D Focus

Lot of OOP stuff there. I suspect that the Zeus, Undertaker/Vulture, Crank, Thrasher and maybe the Heat could replace them. Maybe she sticks with the Focus, but maybe the Chally SS or Steady BL.

More pressure and focus on Kristin Tattar for Trilogy now?

I might be wrong but i think she is the only top 10 ranked player in MPO/FPO ( in ratings ) that Trilogy have now

But to be fair, Paul is the only top 10 player in ratings that Discraft has

Yes, but looking at the top FPO rating, she is 12th. . both Tattar and Cox are higher rated Trilogy players than 1XPaige

But Page has that World title for life, so she probably ranks higher than Cox and Tattar in the Team
