Barsby would be one of the last people I would expect to see leaving Innova.

He’s on fire this year. His value has never been higher.

Which brings me to the most important question. When is the first barsby champs vs chumps?

I thought Barsby was once sponsored by Discraft, and I thought I heard they had a bitter end.

If bitter end means a guts match with z nukes in the warehouse, then yes... but it was Innova Canada before it became Discraft and moved to Michigan in 1942. Barbys father was actually half owner and inventor of the buzzzzz which was retooled into the buzzz we know today. He sold his half to start Innova Peru in 1967. It went bankrupt in 68’

How is there so little speculation on DD signing people this offseason? Haven't they been the source of a large number of the big signings in the last couple years?

Barsby leaving Innova would be tough to imagine. It's not a contract year for him, right?

Also can't think of him not rocking the Eagle, RR, and every other great mold in his bag. (Boss, etc.)

With the success of Matt Dollar, as in he got on lead cards and had other pros making commits about what he was throwing, I say MVP will pick up a bigger name this year.

Post Nikko, MVP seems to be focused on having 'nice guy's' representing them, so I think narrows the field of whom is a good fit.

They've blown their wad, all the hype is dying and I predict many leaving, but few will find new sponsors as no one wants to deal with ex-kool-aid fanatics.
