You guys are weird.
I don’t think it’s weird at all. Mcbeth has only ever been sponsored by Innova, and has been the face of them for years. You can tell by a lot of the comments at the beginning of this thread that some people thought Paul would never leave Innova. To hear he’s not only leaving, but leaving for Innova’s biggest competitor, and one that has been slacking in the pro sponsors and marketing departments lately, was a shock and seemed far-fetched.

I’m not familiar with all of Ricky’s sponsorships, but I believe he was with Innova, then Prodigy, and now Lat64 for the last 4 years. To hear he’s switching again, and that he is the #2 golfer going to the #1 company that just lost their main star, makes perfect sense.

I really don't get it. I started playing about 2.5 years ago, tried a few used discs and the Buzzz and Stalker were the first discs I bonded with. So I became a bit of a Discraft fanboy. Long story short, I tried a bunch of discs and eventually moved to a few Innova/DM molds for drivers. Still have multiple Undertakers, Surges and Thrashers in reserve and they are all great discs.

Switched to Roaches for putting a while back and I'm digging them. I also remain a defiant fanboy of Discraft mids.

When I got really serious about learning to be better...an X Comet was my first purchase followed by some Magnets and Cyclones and those discs really taught me how to throw and shape lines. I got away from throwing them for awhile and recently recreated a similar bag using Stings/Undertakers to replace the Cyclones and I throw Discraft stuff much better than other discs...

I could see the former scenario, the latter I can't ever see happening personally.
It wasn't made clear, sorry.

Ha, that's funny, I just messaged a buddy of mine before I read this. I throw a mixed bag of innova (drivers/fairways) and discraft (mids and flick) and gateway (putters). I told him that Paul leaving was not enough to get me to stop throwing innova, but if Ricky's name starts popping up on teebirds and destroyers, I might be out.
