He says he can't backhand the firebird well. He can sidearm them fine but I think I've only seen him backhand them once or twice. Seems like he runs thru piles of them too, like 4 or 5 a year.

And his friend Sexton's name is on the Champion Colored Glow Firebirds. The name/sig factor might indeed be a factor in McBeth's choices, but IMHO McBeth also realizes he can go up in speed to the Monster and still get that Firebird beef with that additional speed. IMHO it's a good move for him to make.

I'm also very curious about his potentially moving to the Teebird3 from the Teebird. I understand it, as with his power he might prefer the speed to the lesser glide. It'll be interesting to see how that goes next season.

Nothing wrong with a little dome on a Firebird. Allows us mere mortals a chance at really working them. I'm sure Dave Dunipace would hand deliver a box of flat ones at a moments notice if Sir McBeth requested.

Honestly if I'm Dave D, "hey Paul I know you used to like those Maxes that we put OOP, and that FBs are Kenny's disc but what about the Monster? Good disc feels more like a Max, and if you win another one it could be the Mon5ter?"

And Paul is like... Yeah okay.

I do like a good Monster, they are too hard to find to make them replace my Firebirds, and that beveled rim is hard for me to BH, but I have a PFN Pearly Champ I'm fond of tossing in the bag from time to time.

I'm guessing that at this point in Paul's career, he's probably thinking about a bag entirely made up of his own signature discs. In his place, I'd probably be thinking that too. If he wins a couple more championships, what else will Innova have to give him anyway? If he replaces the molds in his bag that he CAN'T get his sig on (KC champ Teebird/Firebird) with molds that no one currently owns, then eventually he'll have an all-sig bag and more royalties to boot. Sounds like a solid plan to me. If he keeps bagging a Gator or Mako3, I'm sure he could get his sig on those, too. However, the Teebird3 and Monster have WAY more sales potential to earn him money. So many people like Firebirds and Teebirds that could be convinced to buy a Monster or T3 instead...

Not a bad point from hugheshilton. There was a time when Kenny had a bag full of sig molds as well...and it may have been ore molds than McBeth currently bags,anyway (citation needed.)

With the depth of competition these days, and the length and difficulty of courses, I'd say 4 World championships is on par (pun intended) with Climo at 9 (when Innova really started rolling out his aig discs.)

But KC also had a couple USDGCs under his belt at that point...
