Default Sponsorship changes

So now that the dust has settled more or less, who does everyone feel has benefitted and regressed from sponsorship changes the past couple seasons? I will start with regressed


Nikko Locastro, Gregg Barsby, Will Schusterick, Eric McCabe


Benefitted

Ricky Wysocki(he came into his own anyways so maybe it wouldn't matter if he was throwing lightning discs)

I don't think anyone rating has went up since joining prodigy on the male side of things. Everyone should of stayed where they were.

I would have to agree with your assessment. McCabe will come back strong I think, I just think he's comfortable where he is at right now. He is more of an advocator to the sport and not so much focusing on his play it seems like, just my two cents. Will seems like the real casualty of brand switching though, crazy how much he dropped off. Prodigy must have thrown a lot of money around

It will be interesting to see how JohnE fits into this question in a year or so with his new deal with Salient. Although, I only imagine he will stay the same or get a little better since he can still throw all of his old discs.

McCabe has also been having headaches/migraines off and on ... plus some other health issues over the past couple of seasons? (broken foot or wrist or something? might totally be making that up, can't remember)

He broke his hand back in 09', but wouldn't say that contributed to much since he turned around and became world champion. But that was with Discraft. He needs time to acclimate to DD

I think I remember reading about McCabe having a back injury a while back.

Wysocki is rated like 1047 now, isn't he? Was he that high with Innova?

To guys like eMac, Jenkins, feldberg they are nearing masters so age is part of the reason for falling off I suppose. One player I was expecting to develop his game much more has been david wiggins but on the vids online I've seen he try's to throw way too many power shots even when not necessary instead of golf shots. #onetrickpony

At least 35, I'm 28 and graduated high school in 04, he graduated in 1997 his Facebook says so 7 years older than myself depending on when his birthday is, if he may have had a summer birthday and been held back

Just looked up his stats on Innova's website and it says he was born in 1978.
