I’ll take that logo over four jagged slashes.

Depends on usage. Sockibomb is OK by itself. But if you go with the whole Ricky 'Sockibomb' Wysocki thing, it's too much.

Its less redundant than Ricky 'Why so sucky' Wysocki. Personally I refer to him as 3Boob (for his PDGA number, not any surplus of nipples).

I think all of this nickname branding in disc golf is very cringe worthy. It makes sense in stuff like pro gaming where your identity is tied to your player handle, but it pretty much ends there.

CoolDaddySlickBreeze. Seems like a really nice guy and I like the promotional work he does for DD, but that's an awful nickname for anybody, much less a middle-aged man

Sockibomb is lame AF. As far as the logo, whoever developed it did damn fine with what they were given. It's clean, readable and aggressive without being over the top. Then you get back to, Sockibomb is lame AF.
