Zoe moving on from DD is more of a shock to me than Paige leaving, mainly because, with all due respect, who is going to give her a better sponsorship than DD? She's a 928 rated player with less than $2k in 2019 tour earnings.

After Paige Shue, that leaves Tina Oakley @ 891 rated and brought in $18.00 in 2019 tour earnings as the only other FPO pro on their touring team. Really is surprising to me because I (perhaps wrongly) assumed that FPO was a big thing for them.

Maybe it was like a few years ago with Discraft where the respect for female players was just not there? I think maybe Dynamic Disc is planing on getting top unsigned rookie PT/NT players in respect to disc manufacture and build the relationship that way in a once they are good enough the player does not want to leave due to how locked in they feel due to the discs they have been using for years. Though for now plan for Dynamic Disc is to the Use YouTube people Like Danny Lindhal and Rec Rob that have a dedicated following so they can put them in the lower tiers of sponsorship and not need to pay a player as much as top touring pro players.

Though some of the best like Paul McBeth can switch over without much of a problem from one brand to the next and not loose at all, in fact gain more momentum with Discraft then with the Innova discs he has been using even back to his Prodigy days when Prodigy was just a bag and apparel company.

Dynamic. McBeth was with Dynamic when it was just a retail/apparel store.

Prodigy was created specifically to be a disc manufacturer...and McBeth famously rejected them to stay with Innova.

Sorry, I got the two companies mixed up, yeah I do remember Dynamic Disc was an Apparel/Logo Disc Stamp company starting in the mid to late 2000's. I just though that Prodigy was similar boat before making discs.

From what I remember Prodigy did not have disc for the first year or two in existence and when they started making own line of discs, they had a number of players leave, not that having that many top level touring players was sustainable for a new company. At least that is the story I have read on here.

Back in the day, word was that PMB reneged on a verbal agreement to be a part of the original release Prodigy gang. I believe money had even exchanged hands.
Oh, what Prodigy could have been!!

Not sure it's just a women's thing. DD/Trilogy seems to be hemorrhaging pros of every gender...
