Fun video. .i wonder how many discs paul takes out α year?

Looks like many. . big stack of CryZtal LUNAs. .and old blue ti Buzzz Nate Doss

Wonder if he trows them all and then just pick "the best ones" or if he really goes throw that many discs in a season?

Remember an old Innova video where he took a LARGE stack of discs out to the field to throw, , then he picked the "nice ones" and took home

I'm sure they told her to turn off the camera before they showed off the Everlasting Gobstopper machines.

Honestly, there isn't a ton of security at these places, nor reason for there to be. I've toured Innova's warehouse in Rock Hill a few times, a couple of which were more or less unannounced visits as we passed through town. They always have given us free reign throughout the building, letting us look in any box we want, generally without an escort or babysitter. There were no secret rooms, no sealed and unlabeled boxes, no non-disclosure agreements to sign before entering.

Oh man and you're on a different team even?

It's almost as if, the disc golf industry is more close knit than people realize.

I think Paul said something or made a reference that they had not filmed parts of the factory.
They'll show you the stacks of discs anytime you want, but they didn't let them film the stamping or the molding or any production part of the process.

In Rock Hill, actually Fort Mill, they don't make the discs, they just stamp and distribute to the east.
I know quite a few that have been in the Fort Mill distribution warehouse, but don't know many that have been in the stamping building.

Unless something has changed recently, they didn't have a separate stamping building or even room in Rock Hill. The machine was on the warehouse floor with all the inventory. They even let me try the machine and stamp a disc.

Speaking of that, about the only thing that they did have on significant lock down were the blanks. No blanks were allowed to leave the warehouse.

Never thought about the fact that Discraft don΄t have BLANKS

Guess the Foundation Discgolf Blank Smokey Cryztal Raptors is quite rare then

Yeah they should make her stand outside in a corner anytime Paul shows up for meetings. Or wear earplugs during any phone calls Paul makes or receives.

But there not at microsoft and apple and if the companies thought it was a problem then it should have been discussed beforehand (I would imagine some of it was).

Sleeping With The Enemy.

It would never happen with Apple/Microsoft. Or, if it does, there is no trust at the foundation of the relationship, and it is perforce doomed to fail.

Me, I carry every kind of plastic there is, practically. And proudly.

They should all join forces in a bid to take over the world. If Dr. Doofenschmirtz can be so delusional, so can we.
