Default Top Disc Golf Teams

In your opinion, who are the top players for all of the major "teams" (Innova, Prodigy, etc) and what team would win a doubles tournament? Just curious what people think.

If you're going dubs, tough to beat McBeth/Sexton on Innova. Wysocki/Colglazier/healthy Feldberg is close, as is McMahon/healthy Lizotte for Discmania. Uli/Jerm probably tops from Prodigy right now.

If we bring depth into the equation, Innova only gets stronger with Williams, Nybo, Philo, etc. I'd love to see a sponsor-based bragging rights tournament.

I agree & I'll add Eric McCabe/Drew Gibson for DD. I'm not so up on Discraft pros...Doss/MJ? I don't know how "popular" he is but Justin Lammers is sponsored by Discraft & he got 16th at worlds. Adding to the depth of Innova...Cam Todd? The Latitude 64 team is solid/really deep as well with Devan Owens & Matt Orum.

JohnE McCray/Ricky Wysocki could hold their own.

The Lat team is deeper than I realized, for sure. But if we only needed two, I think any team could hold its own, especially Discraft there with MJ and Doss.

The most interesting observation I am taking from this is that, despite all the hype of a few years ago, Prodigy may now sport the least depth of any team. I know they have a lot of young players and some good European talent, but still...

not true if women have to be represented! Paige (probably contractually forced to join!) and Catrina is a powerhouse.

I agree! That's what got me thinking about this! I wonder what it would take for that to happen.

Why not a mixed doubles contest? That might be interesting. Pair the highest rated man and woman from each company's team...

McBeth & Jenkins-Doss
Ulibarri & Allen
Rico & Hokom
McCabe & Bjerkaas
Doss & King
