And, I don't believe that Drew Gibson is really a Corvette guy. Those things are way too flippy.
You heard what happened to it? He was driving a Hyundai for a while there recently...

We already knew he had a big arm. Throwing far does not always equal good scores. For all the crap we've been giving him in this thread, he played really well at the LVC. It's early, but he could be this year's Paige Pierce who makes a team change, becomes happier, and subsequently plays better. It truly is amazing how much one's general state of being affects his/her play.

It's gotta be mental. If he was so convinced that the discs he was using with DD were too flippy, he would throw more tentatively. Give him a disc that he's sure is "stable enough for his arm", regardless of what manufacturer and he'll throw it confidently.

I believe his comment about Trilogy discs was just an excuse. His real reason for switching (and he said so in the same paragraph of his statement) was he didn't like his Trilogy teammates.

So no, he's not going to throw tentatively; he's fine with his discs...

Drew probably wasn’t #keepingitreal enough or #beingdynamic or #growingthesport enough like his teammates.

Why does everyone assume it was him that didn't like his teammates......

It's not an assumption; he SAID so in his announcement that he was switching. There's a copy of that announcement somewhere back in this thread, if you want to read it.
