Years of youtube videos and promotion of a product he likes. If all they give him is discs he probably makes a dime an hour.

His vids certainly helped sell me my first Envy. I've bought a couple of MVP/Axiom putters since then.

Love the Ion, it started my love of MVP but it's just not unite as effective for me personally as some other molds.


An ITB may be happening soon though.

They're "testers" it would be more accurate to call them hype men.

How to be a "tester."
1. Take new disc out and throw it once or twice.
2. Post on DCGR and other sites something like "(Insert name of disc) is one of the best discs I have ever thrown. Everyone should try this disc. The gyro makes this disc fly so much then any other (insert putter, mid or driver.)
3. Answer guestions about the new disc by talking about how great it is.
4. 1 month later don't bag the disc because it couldn't replace the non-MVP disc you do bag.
5. 1 year later post about how it wasn't really that great of a disc but the new release is just what you wanted(but you don't bag that disc after a month either.)


Don't believe me just go back and read the old "tester" reviews on the Shock, Tensor, etc ...


I would happily "test" some Soft Neutron Ions if they did a production run.

My favourite reviews on Amazon go something like
"What a great product etc... can't wait to try it out.. 5 stars"

The disc reviews where someone unboxes it and starts guessing how it might fly for 4 or 5 minutes before maybe taking it out for a few throws makes me equally as angry.

Here is graham's bag as listed on the site...

Hey, I followed those rules to a tee and have never been given discs by a company (except Jamie at RDG, those Serpents did rule though). I'd say I was one of the first on here to spread the Gospel of the ION and uh, yeah, I post a little bit.

I guess I shouldn't have talked chit about the Tensor so much.

Nah tensor works but we both went down that weird road and really was likely a FR issue like the shocks etc. I haven't touched a tensor in years but might start bagging alias again...

Fwiw dont take some old ass reviews out of context of which they were working with when reviewing one brand and limited molds. Obviously like even mcbeth the bags will change with new plastic........... I mean?

And ill call it like it is everytime on some BS MVP so lets not go there this is DG. Duh?

Im not a tester and never have or applied to be or sponsored etc. I just like MVP. They put up with my ****.
