My guess is he's gunna bag a bunch of forces and undertakers then fill in the gaps with the Pred, and Nuke OS and maybe the vulture until he beats in some predators. He will also throw the heat for a roller. The rest seemed like he just was testing and showing us how they fly. That was hands down the best display of what Discraft drivers and plastics do that I have ever seen.

I'm surprised he did not try the Machete, that disc seems like an upgrade on the Predator IMO.

If he had thrown the Surge and Machete I might agree with you, but I guess the Surge and Vulture might overlap a bunch. I was suprised at how much the Punisher turned for him.

I think the flight of all those discs seemed a little bunched up because he was throwing uphill. The video probably would have been better on flat ground, and showed a more accurate representation of the capabilities of each driver. Overstable fast drivers often don't do that well on uphill shots anyway.

Obviously not all those molds will eventually make the bag. That said, I'm sure Discraft can have discs tailor made to suit McBeth's needs. If he needs a Nuke more stable or out of a certain plastic they'll make it happen. He is literally the face of their brand now. They aren't going to disappoint him with shoddy plastic.

I think this whole arrangement will be a huge win for Discraft. They'll start making molds out of different combos based on Paul's recommendations. Their discs will be seen way more than they are now and they'll get their name back on the map.

I would love to se him throw the Force vs Undertaker on flat ground. . .for me its just a few feet more with a 12-speed vs 9-speed disc.. . ( my longest throw ever is with a 9-speed disc )

But how much more distance do the best players Actually get with the "faster" discs . . . in this video Paul throw the 8/9-speed discs as far o further than the Force ( his main distancedriver )


Surpriced that the Predator looked WAY more OS than the Force.

The DGA Squall could also be a consideration.

The new Sting wouldn't be a bad option either. It seems like MJ really likes it for those kind of shots

The Sting is the flippiest disc i have ever thrown. The line from where it stays on angle or flips over and turns into a throwler might be about 5 degrees. I would bet it isnt not as consistent as Paul would like. That being said... I have no where near the skills of Paul's shadow.

Paul's shadow's game crushes open courses, but fades in the woods.
