nah...don't worry about it, just keeping posting your thoughts. I've been asked to leave, stop posting, blocked by a bunch, etc, etc, and I happily keep posting my thoughts and opinions because once in a while you get in a truly interesting conversation with a few peeps and you realize there is life on this forum after beer & pizza.

She said on Smashboxx that she first got her hands on her new putter on Friday. . and they will tweek it some more
So if Discraft are not tweeking it and send her putter to Croatia for feedback it might be a month or two before her putter is 100% done
Sounds hard to make a new putter and then learn it before the season starts. . the rest of the disc o probably easier to lern
The whole discraft thing is moving very fast, guessing they want to get things lined up for the holidays, but it's looking more and more imop like the gears were in motion...much earlier than perceived.

Sierra Nevada's Hazy Lil Thing blows away their Torpedo. IMHO.

Easy to drink and easy to control yourself so things don't get out of hand too quick.
Versatile? You can do all those activities with Double IPAs and Barley Wines too...and I usually do.

Oh, and Miller is real beer....

..real weak, watery ass beer.

Just read the disgruntled members upset with thread drifts...sorry.

On the Paige Pierce tip...Just played Friday with a friend who is the die hardiest of Innova guys, who I've heard on occasion utter "Discrap". He was throwing a Discraft disc. He used to play with Paige back in Texas.

Yeah, I agree. They were ready to hit the ground running. Website made; proto putters and branded clothing (apparently) ready to ship. I don't recall the rollout schedule last year when Paul switched to Discraft, but I feel like the Paige timeline has been a lot more aggressive, in terms of getting products on the market.

And frankly, that's smart. Good idea to have your wares for sale before xmas lists are drafted. Also good to available for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and whatever other holiday shopping days have been synthesized. (Sponsor Swap Saturday?)

I've been thinking that I feel like it would be in the best interest of both manufacturers and players if contracts ended like mid/end of October in order to allow newly signed players to push out their newly stamped discs during the holiday buying season just like Discraft is currently doing with PP.

Paige uses a Cart. . can she do that with Discraft?
If I were Zuca I'd be dialing Paige up and asking if she was interested in rolling a non-DD branded version in return for some hype.

Nate has always had an ahead-of-its-time contract, and he is really good at just saying "they take care of me" when you press him about the details. I'm not sure about Val's at all. I think Nate leveraged his position when Discraft's cupboard emptied during the Prodigy Exodus.

I do know that they were tired and a bit jaded by the grind.
