Seems like a pretty sound and logical review.

He's going to have some kind of Zone is his bag. He probably already had a stash of original Glo Zs. I still don't think the Crystal FLX was more OS, but hey, McBeth can be the judge of that. The exposure for Discraft will show up in no time in sales.

Well if so, he did it way before his contract with Innova was up. They have been printing flight numbers on all of the new ESP runs.

Default in the bag videos

From what I saw Discraft just pushed the entire lineup and experimented his influence with a minor disc... Zombie. All of those drivers seem like alot I think he will definitely thin the bag a bit. I'm really interested in his putters I hope he puts some attention on the roach or focus(beaded roach).

it was a building the bag video, not an in the bag video, and yeah he's trying out a lot of plastic to see what he likes. He didn't even know what some of the discs were in the video. Pretty much everything except the nuke, heat and zombee flew about the same and landed in the same place. Can't wait to see him throw comets. When's the mids video?

My admittedly speculative guess is that discs cost much less to make than $15. Most wholesalers and manufacturers and retailers will price their product at about double their cost.
So a reasonable manufacturing cost for DX is probably ~$2, Pro maybe $3.50, Champ maybe $4-5 and Star maybe $5. Realistically, these numbers are probably high.
With figures like these, the calculation changes. How many extra discs will Discraft need to make to make a reasonable ROI?
From where I stand, it was genius to get Paul...
ROI when it comes to marketing/branding is not always easy. I'm almost certain Discraft is not expecting to have a direct ROI from a 'Disc Revenue Increase' - 'What we Pay Paul' at least in the short term. Maybe they are, and that would be cool, but if a business is trying to make their brand relevant in a market that has steady growth in both consumer size and competition they are going to have to take some risk and think long term. Discraft is likely looking far past the 4 year contract with Paul. I personally think it was a very smart move (*as long as they take marketing seriously moving forward) and well worth the investment in their new team. It's not like they are starting from nothing. They are already the 2nd biggest company in the Disc Golf market (I think) and have a brand all the current players are aware of and respect, but have certainly let their brand fizzle a bit in recent years. When you look at growth and the amount of new consumers flooding into the market every year Discraft is in a position to make their brand the most visible in the sport and that is going to equal long term gains far above what they will pay and maybe keep paying Paul.
