What percentage chance do y'all give that Barsby leaves Innova and returns to Discraft? Seems unlikely, but the silence on the Barsby front seems weird.

Probably none until his current contract is up. After that.... depends if Innova treats him like the world champ or not is my guess.

Not to say that he'll necessarily get more than one, but I thought the Scorpius was more of a tour series thing. I thought he'd get an actual Innova signature mold.

What's the difference you are describing here? Genuinely asking, I've read similar elsewhere and not understood what's being said. And what does torque mean in this context? Again, genuinely seeking knowledge.

I'm not 100% sure this is what brutus means, but I interpret torque and power to refer to arm speed while snap and spin have to do with wrist action.

I would have thought using Nikko as the example of a torque monkey would have made that pretty apparent...He gets his distance by throwing power flex shots as opposed to someone like eagle, who uses his narrow frame and long arms like a whip to throw monster hyzers/flip ups.

I think thirtydirtybirds is on to something.

From what I understand, Innova doesn't do contracts based on the calendar year. Innova staggers their team contracts so they're not all up at the same time. They're good for a year (or two or whatever the term is) from the date of agreement. For Ricky (and Jerm before him), the contract starts January 1 because that's when their previous deal expired.

But for someone who was a free agent when signed, it runs from the date of signing. IIRC, Barsby joined Innova in mid-year. So it may just be that his stock run signature disc will come with his next contract. And that would also be the reason there's been "silence on the Barsby front". His current deal isn't up until mid-year.
