I think any player has a right to change sponsors for just about any reason. And it is perfectly reasonable that someone took a big offer and just did not click with the discs. As unsponsored players, we have nothing keeping us from dropping any disc we don't like for any other. And maybe I will be wrong, but the best players will adapt to their tools, whereas not quite greats will only be able to perform with just the right tools.

I don't hate any players unless they treat other people poorly. But it certainly makes me not care for someone when they don't accept responsibility for their own shortcomings. If they make comments that were intended to be private and they leak, that is one thing, I don't really fault them for that, and should not hold it against them. But if they do so publicly, that is silly and should be treated as such. In the case we have been discussing, I am not sure if initial comments were public or private and I have said my piece and will return to food related comments in this thread.

I don't remember specifically, but I thought the "not overstable enough" comment was something leaked. It was definitely not part of his official statement.

FWIW, he's not the only person to have left the Lat64 brand family in recent years citing that same reason to friends/confidants.
I thought it was part of his official statement. It was part of a long Facebook post that included another gem along the lines of not really fitting in with the other DD/Trilogy guys. But he definitely intended the post to be a diplomatic, grateful farewell to his old sponsor. He just dropped those two little nuggets in there that completely undermined his entire statement.

Yep. Just ambiguous enough for us to argue over on DGCR, lol.

In Drew's defense, I know the War Horse wasn't out then and I'm not sure about the Stiletto. I guess at the time, he was having a hard time finding Trilogy discs that were HSS enough for him but maybe not necessarily with good LSS too. Like a hard x,x, 0, 2 type category. That's my best guess.

I mean that's why you choose the Leopard3 as your tour series disc.

Does DD have a speed 6 disc that will flip up and glide straight 450 feet?

He could have been saying, "Not overstable enough for the way I like to throw" for all we know.

Like I said, I don't remember the exact circumstances, I just remember hearing the same info. We're out on a limb here a bit because of that - but it's just stupid to continually roast a dude over his own reasons for taking control of his own career. They're his reasons, and unless they cause harm to other people, I really don't see the merit in dragging them.
I hate that you put me in a position to agree with you.
