Kona seemed like she was trying too hard and acting a bit much to me. The video also seemed overproduced and not very genuine.

I dont think anyone is, and it would be weird if a male disc golfer called all his discs he.

My discs identify as frisbees. I know, it's copywrited (Or trademarked? I dunno) But they're rebellious.

More interesting than annoying, in my opinion. Does Kona speak any foreign languages? Because lots of languages use gendered pronouns for normal inanimate objects; it's not crazily unheard of.

And even in English, ships often have female names and are referred to with female pronouns. Cars too, private aircraft, etc. So not difficult to imagine a similar treatment for a disc.

I’ll use gendered pronouns for a disc if it’s one I’m attached to. A lot of them feel more masculine or feminine to me for whatever reason. I might say, “this guy throws a bit more overstable” or “turn over girl” while a disc is in the air.

Doesn’t seem too odd to me. Maybe I’m the odd one.

I bag a lot of pretty plastic, so "She's a Beauty!" sounds about right.

I love the longer in the bags. . to hear them say WHY they throw that exact dics in that exact plastic i very helpful
a 3-5min "i throw this, than this" .does not give much

And Paige did not talk about her bag for 40min, the last half of the video are her video plans for 2020
