I hope he starts throwing Hornets, they are more overstable than Wasps (for me the Wasps have too much overlap with the Buzzz) and more glidey than BuzzzOS. I would love to see Hornets back in production.

He bagged the Aviar3 when it first came out and was liking the AviarX3 as well the 2nd half of the season.

I don't think he'll ever stop throwing those pure straight approach shots (most likely with a soft challenger) but methinks he gonna love the zone.

Both Innova and Discmania have been trying to come out with a comparable low profile putter and just haven't been able to nail it. Eagle McMahon would love to have a zone in his bag based upon his comments about the newest low profile putter molds being produced.

I agree 100%. It seems like Innova has been flirting with a Zone Clone for the past few years, but never quite made it there: Aviar3, AviarX3, Rat... They're all serviceable molds, but they don't match the greatness of the Zone.

But also, McBeast hasn't really thrown any of those very much (that I'm aware of). (?)
That slot doesn't really seem to fit his game. Heck, he doesn't really use a Gator or any of the faster counterparts to the Zone slot. (Again, that I'm aware of.)

So I'm not sure we'll necessarily get a McZone.

Outlaws, Enemy/Fighter, Mongoose, TeeBird3, Thunderbird, Pursuit/Recluse/Vandal, Ghost, whichever putter is closest to an Aviar.

I was talking to a friend about this this morning. While he did switch to an aviar3/x3, it was usually only thrown in slightly windy conditions and flew a mostly straight path. And he was using P2’s just fine before that. I don’t think he’ll bag a zone, but instead would bag a buzz OS, as that seems more similar to the Gator he had been bagging. Plus from a marketing standpoint, the zone is one of their best sellers, so I could see him bagging something else to increase sales of underperforming molds (not saying the Buzz OS isn’t popular or underperforming).

It would be hilarious if they made an overmold putter to mimic the McNova.

I like how "Nova" is the last 4 letters of "Innova", so if we translate that to Discraft the new disc would be called the "Raft".

Maybe it will be a floating disc

Full circle. I'd /thread but that literally never works.
Cripes, if I could get my kid to McBeth I'd go nutz. No way. No interest, no time. On the other hand, he sings like a god and is in a music academy. That said, he likes classical and distains pop - where all the money is. Sigh.

Didn't he do a spot for the Rat? I don't really recall. But I agree, that ain't his disc.

This is really awesome. It's hard to imagine a lot of Innova discs without his name on them. Maybe Barsby will get the destroyer, or it might go back to Avery Jenkins.
