I'm not going to argue that Prodigy doesn't sponsors some good players, but you sure about your stats there?

I just looked at top 25 MPO by PDGA ratings and here's what I got:

Discraft:
McBeth
Doss
Ulibarri
Fish

Discmania:
McMahon
Lizotte

Innova:
Wysocki (?)
Conrad
Sexton
Heimburg
Anthon
Shultz
Withers
Crabtree
Rovere

Lat64:
McCray

Prodigy:
Dickerson
Paju
Kajiyama
Orum
Leiviska
Colglazier
Jones

Unsponsored:
Nodland
Nikko

Something I missed there? Looks like Prodigy has 7 and Innova 9. Even without Wysocki (and given how accurate the rumors have been lately, I'm guessing that's a done deal), Innova would be ahead unless Prodigy has stolen an Innova player I'm unaware of.

Also, who the heck is Darrell Nodland? From his PDGA history, it looks like he's a regional player who must be pretty old since he's been playing tournaments since the early 90's, but somehow he's got the 19th highest PDGA rating despite only playing 1 or 2 events per year. Weird.

Drew Gibson posted about heading down to Nashville for something that will change his life. Does Innova have him under contract next year? Might be headed to Prodigy???
Also, nothing that goes on a hotdog is as gross as what is in a hotdog, but lets not talk about that.

This is if you sort by ratings. If you go by the current PDGA World Rankings, Prodigy does indeed have 8 players in the top 25. Innova has 6 (7 if you wanna count Ricky) and Discraft 5.

Oh and Discmania's CD line, what's up with that? A CD2 is 9 speed while the CD is 10 and the CD3 is 11, yet all are 5/-1/2, I'm confused just typing that.

What is the difference between a D3 and a beat in D2?

I'm at the point with my bag I don't even think about the names of my discs anymore. I just know which disc I want to use in any given situation.

Because we all know how accurate the World Ranking system is...

Seriously though...

Whenever I try a new restaurant, if they're not known for a specific dish, I order the Reuben.

Not sure what all of this D and ranking talk is about.

Well Prodigy (2012) is using a modified Discmania (2006) naming convention.

Here's the 15 sec on Discmania:

For Putters, Mids, and Fairways - higher # is more overstable. The reason the MD doesn't have a number is because there was already a MD1 that was discontinued (it wasn't very understable anyway).

For Drivers, it's about the shot type, not stability. They're "families" of drivers. Turning, Control, Distance, Power.

I believe for Prodigy it's the opposite - lower # is more overstable.

Ah, World Rankings. Let's see how my list changes in that case.

Discraft:
McBeth
Ulibarri
Fish
Doss
Johansen

Discmania:
McMahon
Lizotte

Innova:
Wysocki (?)
Conrad
Barsby
Sexton
Hendel
Heimburg
Brathwaite

Prodigy:
Jones
Dickerson
Orum
Paju
Leiviska
Colglazier
Kajiyama
Mไkelไ

Lat64:
McCray
Keith

Prodigy does indeed have 8 in that case. We lose Nodland, Withers, Rovere, Crabtree, Shultz, and Anthon. We gain Johansen, Barsby, Hendel, Brathwaite, Mไkelไ, and Keith. I think we need a team match between those 2 teams of 5 players to see which list more accurately represents the top 25 best players.
