1043 in late 2006...at age 38. The true caveat being that for much of Climo's prime, there were no ratings. Who knows what 1997 Ken Climo, at the same age that McBeth is now, would have been rated as he won his seventh consecutive World title.

The last time Ricky had a higher rating than Paul was December 2013. In fact, Ricky was ahead of Paul for most of that year and it was the only time he has ever been the higher rated between the two. They also had the same rating in June/July last year but beyond that, Paul has been higher rated than Ricky throughout their careers.

Well, he never has put those up until now, so there's that.

Discraft has nothing like the Thunderbird. Vulture and Anax are too overstable compared.

The Luna is more stable than a beadless aviar.

Zeus and Destroyer are basically the same.

I'd have to agree with this, just based on the amount of Discraft plastic with his name stamped on it I've seen on players' hands... in just a few months.

What do you think is the cap? Like 10 years from now, has anyone been rated 1060? 1065? 1070? Its got to stop somewhere, right?

To average 1070, you have to consistently shoot 1100 rated rounds.

The harder and longer courses get, which is the trend in the sport, the harder it will be to have insanely high ratings. It's nearly impossible to get to the 1100 figure on SSAs above 61 - 62.

I don't think anyone will ever get above 1065.

Let’s not discount Ricky, Eagle, and Simon either as all of these dudes are doing some insane stuff on the course and cool stuff off the course as well.
Ricky, Eagle, and Simon are pretty awesome as well. All doing excellent things from a PR standpoint.

Well... maybe not Franklin discs.

Seriously, Paul is good enough archer that he can make most any arrows work. But some of the Discraft arrows...er, discs... seem to be right in his wheelhouse, especially the Zone and Luna (for throwing and putting).

Really that depends on what the standard deviation of your rounds is. More highly rated players means more opportunity to take higher ratings, so eventually that might happen but it's not realistic.

Since it takes 1060+ average to win most NT/Major/DGPT, I think 1065+ is realistic within a couple of seasons.
