Its fun to see how good he is at throwing an OS mid on a slight Anhyzer and make it go straight. . .i cant do that, i need a US to stable disc and throw it flat.

At one point he says something like " im not even taking out all the discs im alowed to every year"

just got me curious, how many discs CAN a pro like Simon take out every year?

. .in Pauls latest video it sounded like they said "You are Paul McBeth, so you can take as many disc as you like"

I'm sure they all have fixed allotments for each player based on their needs, and it probably varies from company to company and player to player. But honestly, how many discs should a player like Simon need per year? From watching some of that video, he doesn't appear to cycle discs too much. In other words, he throws certain discs for a long time rather than replace them every few weeks/months. He's also not a player that is hustling to sell discs online or at tournaments like some others do (which is one way a player might use their allotments to support themselves).

On the other hand, McBeth seems to cycle new discs into his bag quite often. He's not the type to have a "trusty" disc X that he's seasoned for a couple years and relies on for a certain type of shot. He's more the "I'm going to throw mold X here and it doesn't matter which one of the 10 of those I take out of the box today" type.

So Simon personally might only need 40-50 new discs over the course of the year to replace lost discs, have some new stuff to try, and have some extras for giveaways. Whereas McBeth might completely overhaul his regular bag every few weeks so might need 100+ discs over the course of the season.

Its abit funny that he post a "this is all the disc i have" video. . .but just one day ago he posted a video where he throws 10pc of MD4 that he grabed out of a big box.. . . non of those where in the "all i have video"

And he did loose 3 MD4s in just that round. . thats more than i have lost in 20y of playing

I have heard that Paul changes to new putters every round or was it every tournament. . but still, if thats tru he will go throw a TON of Lunas in a year

I'm just glad we now have video of Simon throwing a Buzzz

That would've been a sweet ace

I thought the same. ;-)

One probably has to differ between discs he calls his own, cares about, knows their story ... and stacks of practice tools to throw and not care about. The former are individuals the latter generics.
