I'm sure those Caltrops are just flying off the shelves ... Slammer does seem like a useful upshot disc and a good addition to the DD lineup however.

It's been discussed mostly in this thread. He stated multiple times that it was NOT about the $. He claimed the discs couldn't handle his power and that he didn't fit in with the team very well. He also seemed to be frustrated with the over-exposure of some of the bottom-tier tour players on the team.

And it was the Dynamic Discs discs he said couldn't handle the power, and other DD team members he didn't fit in with, IIRC.

Yeah it was a low-key shot fired at the discs. I interpreted the "not fitting in with the team" part as a sort of "creative differences" thing. He didn't necessarily throw anybody under the bus except for the discs, b/c they were too flippy and rolled under the bus. He was decently gracious with his departure but he could have worded the stuff about the discs better.

That's stupid lol. Latitude 64 brands have discs that are much more OS than innova. It's not like he's throwing the Ape anyway...

Excuses. He wasn't doing great. And he may not have gelled with the discs that could be 100% true. But he throws destroyers. They aren't the most OS discs out there anyway. I call BS, I mean look at the justice for ****s sake.

Innova is the Yankees or Patriots of disc golf, so what if he wanted to go to the industry leader, that's fine.

Well George Soros is a given, what with those Trilogy discs being made in those Communist, one world order Scandinavian countries. Drew is a true patriot and became red pilled. I'm looking forward to him making disc golf great again in 2018 with discs made in America by very fine people.
