Nope, not contributing to this thread. Nope, nope, nope. But I will be reading it that's for sure.

I think we're confusing the differences between signature discs and touring series discs

Not sure if she could still throw discraft with the issues that caused her to leave, sometimes it's hard to seerate those feelings? Imagine being upset with a company and then seeing the branding on everything you throw... bummer

I'm not saying whether she will or not. I'm simply pointing out that ending the sponsorship does not mean she can't throw their plastic anymore. If she chooses to purchase an entirely new lineup of discs from other companies because she can't bear to look at a Discraft logo anymore, more power to her. I just doubt that is what is going to happen. At least not instantly. Chances are she'll keep throwing her Comets if they work well for her.

OP is a couple cards short of a full deck.

Also, clearly he has never met either of the women he's bashing. Things Elaine and Val have in common are being well spoken, respectful in their honesty, and they present themselves with class.

There are extreme/crazy feminists in this world, but to so offhandedly marginalize these women as such?? Women who first spent many years trying to rectify the situation internally with their longtime sponsors before choosing to go a different route?? Geez...take that thinly veiled misogyny somewhere else.

So does anyone have any insight into what Discraft's "criteria" might be for a signature disc? Seems obvious Elaine would easily meet it, I mean, whaddaya gotta do for God's sake?
