They are the original Disc Company with competition level discs in mind. They have been around for 40 years, the team and online presence was a bit stagnate ever since Eric McCabe left the team to form Dynamic Disc in late 2009- early 2010.

Similarly: can Discraft handle the (sudden and large) demand for their discs that is occurring due to McBeth coming over? Over time they probably will, but we may see some shortages and wait times for discs due to 'growing pains', for lack of a better term.
Also Discraft as of 2019 has been in the Disc sales for 40 years and was one of the early makers of modern disc golf type molds of discs in the 1980's.

Discraft might be lacking on top FPO unless you count Valery Jenkins if she is even touring anymore with the start of the Brewery with husband Nate Doss. Innova has been getting a few FPO players in 2018 and 2019 to play on the team as the majority of the older FPO who were FPO in the 2000's went to MFPO 40 recently.

Seems for some reason Female Players want to leave Discraft. I wounder is this due to the fact they forget the Female players or not treat them equally as they would say MJ or Autsin Turner level of player on the Female side?

Would be fun if Discraft signed a top FPO player for 2020. . .but i don´t think PP will leave DD. . .or Cat leave Prodigy ( but she has a Discraft boyfriend..but also some Discraft ex, hard to see Paul and Paul sign Cat ) . . .so how could they get? maybe Henna but hard to get her to tour in the US

I don't see Cat leaving Prodigy... unless Prodigy goes under or can't financially support their pros. Not saying that will happen, either. As to where Cat would go, my guess would be Innova.

I would say it's basically not happening for Paige and Cat to discraft.

Paige and DD won't ever separate and Cat's ex-husband (Uli) is running the team for Discraft. Not a good combo.

A agree, but I would had said the same for Paul last year..NEVER thought he would leave Innova...so even though I can’t see Paige ever leave DD ....it’s hard to be sure

Both Paige and Cat are former Discraft Pros, so they would have some familiarity with the brand, family, product, etc.

Would that open the door to Discraft potentially pulling them back into the fold? Maybe. Maybe not. It may not hurt Discraft's chances in the event that one of them were looking to move, but I doubt it would entice them to begin looking.

What it does is make it should one leave Dynamic Disc or want to when contract is up then Discraft might pursue them with the starting notion do you still have your old Discraft discs? Most pro players keep discs from the old brands unless they really wanted a specific company to sponsor them.
