Default Paul Ulibarri Switch

So I played in my first A-tier event this weekend and was fortunate enough to watch a final 9 that included Paul Ulibarri and Cale Leiviska. Very exciting. But what surprised me most was that Paul was carrying a mixed bag of discs. Here is a guy that we saw in a Discraft long driving video who now carries a lot of Innova and soon, aparently, all Innova. He even thanked Innova as one of his sponsors during the award ceremony. Anyone else heard about this? Have you heard of any other players switching disc brands? Just trying to fire up the Innova v. Discraft debate.

Players switch sponsors from time to time. Michael Johansen switched from Innova to Discraft recently. Cam Todd won World's as an Innova player and then switched to Discraft. Juliana Korver won most of her World's as a Discraft player, then switched to Innova. It's just business.

Ziggy Bierekoven, one of Discraft's young guns, just recently made the move over to Innova Plastic.

I knew Paul wasn't on the team anymore but hadn't heard why or where yet. As said it happens from time to time. Double G and Matt Hall went from Gateway to the bigger names. Discraft still has Geoff Bennett listed on their site but I have heard that he is with Gateway now.

I heard it was b/c Discraft wouldn't let him play with a Polecat, those fascists.

But who is with Lightning? Inquiring minds want to know!

If you could play competitively with solely Lightning's sorry excuse for plastic, you should be named world champ by defalt.
