I hear he’s just branding himself and Discraft is gonna give him a new company called Fit Disc Golf. That way all his fans can say, “I’m throwing a Fit too!”

What do we think of other companies who have tried this? What are the examples? The Mace and Dagger for Feldberg, Compass and Explorer for Rick, Truth for EMac, Zone for MJ...

What else? Seems like the Mace might be the only "failure."
Almost all of Legacy's lineup is what Steve Rico wants to throw

Well, could be worse, could be Philadelphia:

"Philadelphia consistently ranks above the national average in terms of crime, especially violent offenses. It has the highest violent crime rate of the ten American cities with a population greater than 1 million residents, as well as the highest poverty rate among these cities. It has been included in real estate analytics company NeighborhoodScout's "Top 100 Most Dangerous Cities in America" list every year since it has been compiled."

Philly is a fantastic city. And has a lower crime rate than Cleveland as well. No need to throw stones...

"The overall crime rate in Cleveland is 145% higher than the national average. For every 100,000 people, there are 19.03 daily crimes that occur in Cleveland. Cleveland is safer than 1% of the cities in the United States. In Cleveland you have a 1 in 15 chance of becoming a victim of any crime."

In my area, Discraft is considered the white trash of Disc golf. An old company that has kind of fallen by the way side in it's presence. The only people around me that throw exclusively Discraft are old timers and the guys who need rides to league because of one too many DWIs.

If Discraft wants to up their game, increase they're media presence and create a new image, Paul could be the ticket. And I for one would like to see Discraft up it's efforts with some new plastics and a more professional look.

Some see Paul moving to Discraft as a step backwards (or sideways at best), but I think they're not seeing the bigger future possible picture. Then they're are those fan boys that just can't accept change.

I'll admit I was shocked, I thought Paul would throw Innova for life like Climo, but I got over it. One of the reasons I never gravitated towards any hero worship, they'll always let you down. Nobody can live up to someone elses expectations.

I don't know what the future hold for Paul, but I wish him the best and will still look forward to watching him play, even if it is with Discraft. I'll have to reconsider that statement however if he moves to DD!
See post #1666.

No offense, but your area sounds depressing . And I live in a super rural area where there

are lots of wannabe redneck, bud light drinkin', pick-up truck drivin', huntin', fishin', shootin'

rootin'-tootin', not high falootin', possibly dreamin' of inbreedin', fine upstanding citizens .

I am not a Discraft fanboy, but I have always enjoyed some of their plastic offerings.

I never honestly thought anybody would think Discraft was "white-trash". The socio-economic

spectrum of disc golf is probably somewhat similar to the rest of society. Thanks for the chuckle.

Yes and crime is crime. I'd just as soon be a victim of violent crime as theft, wouldn't you?
