It's a mixed bag in the sense that he can throw anything branded Westside, Latitude 64, or Dynamic Discs. I very much doubt it will be an open, anything goes thing. That would be a departure in policy for Westside.

Also, the Crown I believe is beaded, so there is that. Apparently Nikko was putting Magics at the end of the year too...so Swans?

I could see Nikko putting with a Macana, a Shield, a Crown, maybe a Maiden...possibly with his use of Magics a Swan of some sort...?

He's been putting with the Magic lately, and the DD Deputy is almost the same disc (just adds a microbead). I could also see him using Daggers.

Nikko to Westside is interesting.
I questioned the validity, not your integrity... Just seemed unrealistic. Guess I was wrong.

Definitely a good signing for Trilogy/WS - wonder if it will work out for Nikko and his (traditional) mixed bag.

JohnE went from Wizards to Shields with success. If those don't work for Nikko, there are over a dozen other putter molds to try within the three brands.

Was I hearing things or did the CCDG crew say that AB was heading to college in lieu of playing full time on the tour? Maybe on a Twin Falls Classic vid? Sorry I don’t remember which one. They were talking about mini disc golf and AB came up during that conversation.

If so, I wonder how this would affect his sponsorship.

Big change for him I guess he have never thrown a Westside disc before

Nikkos 2020 in-the-bag will be fun to see

I'm predicting Nikko will be a free agent by this time next year.

If AB is going to college, then I would predict his sponsorship status would just sit where it is with Innova. I can't imagine anyone making a move on him if he isn't full time. But, you never know.
