It will be though I bet at some point carbon fiber will get used as a disc material as that material gets cheaper and cheaper to make.

I bet that Disc Golf might even have a change on the hole size again or get rid of some or all chains to make it harder to putt into for even the average player as that gets easier and easier even by the average player. I see a basket without chains but same parameters or a basket with only the inner set of chains but same parameters. I even see a pole hole with some easier way to tell if you hit the pole, like a tone pole but slim like a pole hole.

I bet size of disc does not change but they make another variant of the game using as much of PDGA rules as you can and modifying a few like disc specs for a game that uses the type of discs that are too small for Disc Golf but too big for Mini Disc Golf. 3 brands already make those discs, Discraft, the 3 Swedish made trilogy brand of discs, and MVP/Axiom as well as Innova having a larger Sonic Jr. for a very long time.

Robert Leonard made a video like this when he was with Innova then went to Discraft. Not sure he is still touring with them, as they need to update the dealer site that has the touring pros on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xk6ev7uKNyg

If Paul plays the VPO (right in my neck of the woods I should add), do you think he would throw any discs from his new bag? If so, word would be out pretty quick what he is throwing.

Thankfully no one across the board took them seriously and recognized the troll.

Jomez used the photos to drive to a link for their 100k push campaign. Funny stuff.

So, Kevin Jones to Dynamic Discs maybe?

I believe he throws and putts Wizards, Prodiscus probably let's him throw a mixed bag don't you think?

The big story here, given that Sprite bottle, is that Coca-Cola is joining with Nike in this new corporate McBeast sponsorship.

Every commentator in the history of sports adds anecdotal rhetoric to their broadcasts to fill the gaps between meaningful play by play. CCDG does seem fond of most players, but I don't have a problem with their opinions. I have no reason to believe otherwise either...

Maybe CCDG knows the 'real' people being filmed and the ones casting stones around here are basing their opinion off what they see on film and social media. I know they're all the same person, but you may be surprised at how your* on-camera persona may change when people start recognizing you*.
* This is meant as the editorial you, not a specific person...

But Paul, Ricky, Kevin and others most have started practise with their new discs by now. . so just a matter of time before somebody reports on what they are throwing
