2018...won her first nine starts including an A-tier, two women's only B-tiers, two NTs, and three DGPT.

2017...won her first six starts including a major, an NT, and two DGPT.

2016...six wins and a bunch of seconds in the first half of the year (first non top 2 finish was in July). This was the year she was with Prodigy but wanted out from Prodigy so she wasn't all that motivated, yet still started the year very solidly.

Not a notoriously slow starter or poor preparer at all that I can see.
I´m not saying she is a "slow starter" she is the type of player that can play quite well and still win even if she have not thrown a disc in months

But now she need to re-brand herself and make a new bag. . plus learn a totally new putter
that´s alot to learn in a short time. . and she might have to cut down on other things like "Disc Golf Tourist"

Will she do all that? hope so

I took her some time last year ro dial in her putt...and now she need to start over again

she's very likely been throwing the stuff for months already... it's almost like being a pro disc golfer is a JOB or something...

Does any Discraft Elite player play with a Cart? . . looks like most of them have a Grip EQ bag ( do they have to use Grip? )

Paige uses a Cart. . can she do that with Discraft?

Well the last 10 years would include McCabe's and Doss's 2010, 2011 World wins, respectively.

Wonder how close to a Deputy that test flight PP Putter will be
I would imagine not too far off... she'll (try to) get the best parts of the Deputy and discard the parts she might not've liked. It actually should turn out very well. I hope so, at least.

It's very possible they already had the basics of what she wanted, so it wasn't hard getting things together. They've also done that past work for Paul, so maybe Paige liked something that came out of that prior 'research'.

He's not touring and playing a lot anymore. He might play the occasional tourney but he's pretty much retired from DG and making beer full time. I bet he's fine with it. He understands he's not going to be relevant to sales anymore.

Sez you. I think that would be a very cool thing, and definitely is reaching out to the fans.

Good PR move, while selling her stuff.
