If they still have the Ace Race Mantis mold, they already have that too.

The Mantis is nothing like a teebird, much more like a valkyrie or leopard3. The ace race protos are not indicative of how the production runs fly. The stalker or undertaker would probably be fine replacements. I'm positive someone with the skills of McBeth could easily make that transition.

That being said, while it would be awesome, I don't really see Paul moving to discraft in the realm of probability.

A Slim Jim partnership would be the ticket in my book, think of all the good to come from McBeth redoing all the old Macho Man commercials.

I didn't see anything mentioned in the past 19 pages of Colglazier dumping mass amounts of Trilogy on the FB pages? Seems like there could be some speculation to be made for him leaving Lat64. This kid has talent and would be a solid pickup for any company.

Really? I don't know why, I met him in person once and even when I see him online, in pictures, etc, he just seems like he's a bit angry all the time...hmm...

When he’s bored with disc golf he can start his pro wrasslin career in the wwe and keep the money coming.

Soooooo how many heads would explode if the Discraft deal involved ultimate and not disc golf? Dude was a legit baseball player, he’s got hands if he played second base. Some type of promotional deal through them partnered with signing to a pro team?

Everybody thought he was trying to bring the money to dg, what if he was trying to use dg as a stepping stone to get the money elsewhere?

For everyone saying Paul can't/won't switch from Innova, there could be certain other things Discraft, or another company could offer him that Innova may not be willing to do. They could offer a stake in the company, like has been suggested before, maybe a whole line of signature discs, perhaps even designed by Paul himself. Maybe some kind of offer to transition into something post 40 as some kind of other position at Discraft. Or maybe just a boatload of cash. Discraft could potentially make one hell of a splash over a few years with 6-10 brand new McBeth molds. Move a lot of plastic. They create enough buzzz maybe even get into Dick's and/or Wal-Mart themselves.

I think if you look at the potential of this being just a piece of a grander plan, it makes a lot more sense. If you just look at it as a simple player sponsorship then no, it doesn't.
