If the #1 FPO player still HAS to sell discs on a table to make ends meet, then her sponsor sucks. Sorry... not sorry. Now...if it was in her contract to do so..that's another story.

I think JVD said on Smashboxxx that he know of six players that made +$100.000 a year . . .but i wonder where Paige P fits in the income scale.
I don´t think she is one of those six. . but she has more titles and "screen time" than most players

Plus, he's also throwing them and I believe he uses a different one than he putts with, right?
400-500?? maybe if he were throwing two of them into the water every round

Paul played 23 tourneys this year. that's 46 putting putters for the season. throw in a stack of practice putters and it's probably not even 100 for the year. he seemed to have been throwing the same yellow Z luna off the tee all season. even if he cycled that one he probably didn't go through more than three or so. i can't remember if he was using that one for upshots or if he has some more special blend ones just for approaches.

What is surprising. That they make that much, or that there are only 6. Paul has mentioned 6 players also, but that was like 2-3 years ago. I bet there are more now. Jerm has to make that much a year, between disc sales, tourney winnings, and earnings from Jomez commentary.

I ran into Paul several years ago at the BHMO. This was around the time the McPro Aviars came out. I asked if I could buy one but he said he wasn't allowed to sell them. Innovative didn't want their pros hustling out of their trunks. I get it. But, I had money and wanted to buy a disc. He had the disc but couldn't sell it.
