You are literally completely wrong on this. Levi Morgan, probably the greatest 3D Archer ever, after winning 6 straight ASA Championships, switch from Matthews to Elite Archery, and then continued to win Championships and Shooter of the Year titles, and then this year switched back to Matthews and, wow, won again.

I think that Discraft needs a face for the disc golf brand and Paul is the biggest name in the game.

He will be part of their new branding/marketing moving forward.

Sure a line of discs may follow, but a lot of you seem to misunderstand a long term marketing approach.

He is a 4x World Champ and 2x US Champ and that's never going away.

They now get to use that in promotion as long as he's under contract.

It's especially valuable if Doss is moving away from competition.

The hardcores know what Discraft is and will hopefully appreciate a fresh approach.

Noobs can look at a disc on the shelf and say, wow a 4x Disc Golf World Champion uses these same discs!

As a matter of fact, the company that owns Elite (The Outdoor group) also had all of his accessory manufactures, release, sight, rest, etc. So when he left them, he had to leave all of that behind too. The only consistent thing was his arrows, and him.

People throwing out $1M but actually, wouldn't $100K be an extraordinary amount as a sponsorship for a GREAT disc golfer? Add bonuses, commissions, other sponsors, plus winnings. Where does the $1M speculation come from?

As soon as he gets his first win, with discraft the sales will go up. DGCR and particularly the people in this thread represent such a small minority of the golfers out there. I think the majority of newer players are not entrenched in years and years of throwing Innova or that being the only show in town. They throw want to throw what the pros throw, whether that's the best choice or not, who knows? So I think there are a lot of people that throw Destroyers, Thunderbirds and Firebirds because that's what McBeth bagged.

If Discraft has extra money from the ultimate side, it's pretty low risk for them. There's no way that their sales will go down by signing McBeth. Plus with Doss having a foot out the door, McBeth would pretty much be the sole face. Either way, excited to see what comes of it, can't wait for the 2019 ITB!!

He was making over 250k a year from Innova.

But we still don't know if it was the arrow or the archer

And look at what happened when Cam moved from Innova to Discraft.

They created the Wasp and Challenger.

Two iconic molds that have sold a ton.

While they didn't necessarily have Cam's name on them, his arrival helped create them.

So maybe Discraft finally comes out with the Teebird killer.

Boom, hundreds of thousands sold.

Yeah, 150 class INNOVA discs. That's the key.

He's going to drop to like 980 rating with Discrap.

(Just kidding. I agree with you; he can still have great success. He has all winter to practice with Discraft molds and see what works for his game.)
