Again, just what I see in my area.

I have no hate against Discraft, I own quite a few discraft molds and never shy away from trying a new one (unless of course it only comes in Z, which is quite a few). I always paw up some Discraft when I'm out of town.

If Paul moves to Discraft, he wont be enticing me to buy any new discs, the only discs I own with a McBeth sig are a few Novas, heck, most of my bag is Innova and I still don't bag anything he throws!

It's frustrating. They have good P&A molds but don't have a plastic I can get comfortable with. JB is decent but is too soft for me & has an odd texture. I wish they would copy Prodigy's 350g which is the best putting plastic IMO.

I'm actually liking Pro D Roaches a lot for putting, even a little more than JB. Agree they should make the Wasp in other plastic, especially X for cyclers. They make the Buzzz in pretty much every plastic available and that works for me.

I personally think Discrafts premium plastics are as good or better than anybody's. Currently not bagging any of their drivers though.

My observation has been that Discraft has been much more active in the last year or so
New molds, new plastics, better colors, sposorships ads, etc.
Again, just one man's observation.

Getting Paul would be a win-win for them.
Still...
Frankly, I won't be convinced that he's going to Discraft until I've heard it from Paul M himself.

It would just have to be a huge offer with life altering implications for Paul to switch.

Now if they were going to give him a huge old farm with room for multiple courses and a house on it or something similar I could see that.

But Innova has been pretty good to the beast as well.

Interesting. I can't say that I've noticed much of an uptick in Discraft media, though I've not been looking for it. It's not because I don't like the product. My most favorite model ever is Discraft--and now OOP. I've thrown many Discraft models over the years.

I've none, now, however, because when I decided to update my bag and evaluate new discs a couple years back, I couldn't find any of the newer Discraft models in anything other than Z plastic. I don't like the feel of Z plastic and quickly got rid of the new discs I got to try because of it. Couple the fact that my favorite Discraft molds went OOP and I couldn't get the new molds in a plastic I was comfortable gripping, and Discraft slid off my radar.

I like some of their discs but seems to me a problem may be their system...why not go with the majority and do the speed glide fade turn ...especially for new players like me i have to go to a website to look them up and then try to remember them or write them down....bit of a hassle

I actually think their older one number system was much better for new players. I was actually pretty disappointed when they and MVP both adopted the four number system.
