So far = Aug 27th, 2018. The Krait isn't on any of these lists.

I'm still looking.

Makes sense since I would guess their player stock is getting thinner.....I hope he signs anywhere but with prodigy.

This isn't data, but out of about 5 people I've seen bag a Krait I'd say 4 of them were McBeth related.

This was also a few years ago that he had it in the bag and only used it very occasionally for straight/turnover and downhill shots IIRC.

I've definitely seen him switch between Firebirds, Monsters, FD3's and also seen those show up differently. In fact the only time I've seen someone bag a Monster was in the short lived time that McBeth was throwing them.

Paul McBeth threw Champion Kraits back in 2015. I have no idea if he caused the sales of that mold to increase at that time, but it would be more useful to look at the sales figures from that year rather than this year.

Thanks. Still no Krait. And again I'm not claiming no one does it but imo it's a small percentage of ALL people that play disc golf.

Have a read through the notes here, how the retailer believes pro use influences some of the sales. For example the Sexton Firebirds, Sonics from GG, McPro Aviars...and I definitely believe the high number of pro's both on Discmania and Innova who use the P2 although they don't mention that.

If Ricky were to go to Discraft and use Zones instead of Harps, I would be shocked if they didn't show up on the top sellers list.

Really? It just seems like Prodigy makes good plastic that no one really uses or cares about.

We gotta think these speculative things through more...
I've asked a few pros if they could play a high level with anyone's plastic, the general answer was yes. I think for the established elite, money talks.
