Totally agree. I've also suggested they could've given her the Roadrunner, and I think it would've sold well despite "having a girls' name on it".

But I remind everyone that from Val's statement, it very much appears she told Innova she was leaving them BEFORE she won the fourth world title. So maybe there are other reasons she chose to go...

Good point. They should have done more long before this summer.

Well McBeth didn't just walk into a big contract.

He had to prove he could sell product (and win).

Usually companies aren't in the business of putting the cart before the horse.

from my knowledge Val and Nate get the exact same contract.... so in my eyes Val gets more than Nate since her making Top 5 in all events is more likely.

Both have a tour series discs as well. Nate's firebird out sell's my discs at times.

Fair point. I wasn't aware of the difference. Either way, seems kinda crumby to go with a starfire for a signature disc. I don't know anyone personally that throws them. Now Terns...that's another story.
