Mind blown, I've never thought in context of your last sentence! That makes sense (in a way )

But I think it's more, allot of that have played disc golf since it was only Discraft and innova, and ever since, no matter what new company Comes out you still reference what their plastic is compared to innovas star champion dx lineup.

It's not that hard, people. I know Innova/Discmania, Discraft and a little DGA, MVP/Axiom and am slightly familiar with others. I've been playing almost 3 years and took an interest in some of their discs. If I took an interest in Trilogy, Legacy etc, it wouldn't take long to figure out the basics of their plastic and molds.

So, here is where MVP gets their next pro. I hate this for Legacy, she was the only 'name' they had left. I like the company even though I throw none of their discs.

Now let's see if Goodpasture leaves as well.

Any idea where she is going? Maybe Discraft since Val is not playing as much anymore?

Never would have seen that coming. She just needs a company with some overstable stuff in their lineup. Back to prodigy? Wasn't she prodigy?

There has been rumors for a few weeks here, that she was leaving to go to MVP. They have some of the most OS discs on the market; no problem there.

They didn't say anything other than they love her, and are sorry that she's leaving.
