Well, looking at lists of top selling discs is pretty dull these days - Innova has most of the top 20 - Buzzz, Judge, are usually the only regular interlopers in this charts, courtesy of Infinite and DGC. Spreading the wealth is good with me.

Is Paul the first person to get disc golf on sports center, not counting aces that made top 10 plays? I just remembered DGLO is sponsored by Discraft. It would have been cool to see him shoot his -18 at his own sponsor's event.

Nate Doss with the ace on hole one at the memorial open was the first.

The wait for the latter is usually a few months.

You could make a quick change and cheaply pump out extra product...but I think consumers would frankly see through that and it would end up being product left on shelves.
I think of the demand is high enough for a while, they would make an adjustment in their queue. But I don't think that they are going to pump out an absurd amount.

But ultimately they will not sit on shelves... Depending on what model it is. Destroyers are gonna still be destroyers.

That was my 1st time challenging someone for $ numbers, I totally agree as I've never seen any pro post what kind of base salary...if any at all... they are getting from a sponsor.

McBeth needs to do a presser like Lebron.

Dammit. I was really thinking it was the 12th of Octcember in the moon of 31, as is tradition with annual contracts here.
