I feel like Discraft hasn't really expanded their footprint while the sport has grown, meaning they're losing proportionate market share but still doing the same amount of business. Newer companies are making yuge gains while Discraft plods along at the same rate.

I forget where, but someone made an excellent point that they aren't doing enough to market the first husband/wife duo of disc golf World Champions. I know Nate and Val are busy, but even a little social media goes a long way these days.

Signing Paul would be (will be?) a big step in the right direction. He's a one-man marketing machine, and he'll help get more eyeballs for the rest of the brand as well.

Fun to speculate on McBeast's mold selections if/when he makes the swap. Force or Nuke? Wasp vs. Buzzz vs. Meteor? McRoach? Not sure what the Discraft Teebird3 would be, perhaps an entirely new mold.

Assuming it doesn't allow him to throw a mixed bag I suspect he will bag a lot more molds at the Memorial while he's experimenting than at the 2019 USDGC.

My Prediction for first "in the bag" video:

Force
Pred
Heat
Vulture
Undertaker
Wasp
Comet
Zone
Magnet / new putter / new variation

Good idea. I added it to the Paul who thread? We know he enjoys that one.

I'm not sure he would throw a Comet. Also, don't you think he'd bag a Machete over a Pred?

He's shown preference for the slightly slower OS utility discs in the past, for example switching from Monster to FB then even FD3 for a time. So Machete and even Flick might be too speedy for his taste. Predators are not that crazy. Maybe a FT version?

There's actually kind of a gap in the Discraft flight chart for fairway-ish speed OS utility. Room to grow.

I feel like he'd be more likely to go Wasp or Hornet, rather than Buzzz. He's preferred beaded mids in the past. Well...except for the Mako3. Hmm.
Certainly has excelled with non-beaded putters. Hence my McRoach prediction.

I'm thinking:

McRoach, McBuzzz. McWasp, McUndertaker, McVulture, McMachete, McForce

I would imagine him throwing a Crank before a Heat.
