Well Paul couldn’t get that with Innova..so he left
And Paige couldn’t get it with Dd..so she left

A simplification sure..but I feel that if Innova had given Paul his own line he would never left

Nice to see both Discraft and Innova with a strong FPO team in 2020...DD and Prodigy have won almost everything the last few years
That ends now

One has to wonder if she went to DD and told them "Hey discraft offering me my own line of discs. I'll stay if y'all can do that."

You are assuming that she is getting her own line of discs. I have heard nothing of the sort. Clearly, I don't know for sure. Maybe she will? But what if she isn't.

One has to wonder if considering they have someone else making their discs if DD even has the ability to do that. I mean I'm sure they could decide to slap her name on existing discs and call them a PP line, but could they actually develop a new line of discs for her and get them in the production cycle with Lat 64 being who actually calls the production shots? I'm not saying they couldn't, I'm just speculating that it's a lot easier to do this if you are actually a manufacturing disc golf company and not more of a distribution disc golf company.

There's a Test Flight putter on her website...looks like she's getting at least a putter for her own line.

It's in the announcement, PP putters dropping on Black Friday. Get the credit card ready.

Despite the success that top pros like Paul and Paige have had negotiating deals, this is how I imagine a lot of negotiations go in the world of disc golf.

Wow. This is crazy. Team Discraft will be a force next year. When I started playing just a few years ago, I couldn't have have named you a single Team Discraft member. And I watched a ton of tourney coverage. After the last year or so, I know almost as many Discraft members as I do Innova people. They have really stepped up the marketing game. It's neat to watch

Fair. I didn't see the discraft announcement. She is getting a test flight putter.
