Paul could throw any brand and still be the best. . . BUT, it would be REALLY fun to see what he would throw if he was sponsored by something like Adidas and could throw any disc brand

No disputing Paul's happy with his Discraft discs, but he'd be putting up these kinds of ratings throwing any brand's plastic. He's just that good a player.
One could argue that the added pressure from the switch, whether the challenge of learning new plastic and/or dealing with naysayers, might have given him a boost in motivation. Paul seems to play well under pressure.

Sure. I'd even go so far as to say that simply the added practice of learning his new discs would have positive results, motivation or no motivation.

Default GOAT?

Just out of curiosity, what was Climo's highest rating?

Also, during the Ricky run in 2016 and 2017, how often was he rated higher than Paul?

Paul seemed to be the best until early 2016 but got it back the second half of 2018 until now...I watched his best round at Worlds in Vermont (when he took the lead in the second round at Brewster) and actually Udisc scored his first round of USDGC last year when he shot -13 (it was jungle hot in October)..

The guy is amazing...

This is all a bit premature. If Paul doesn't win worlds, it's clear that he just peaked.

And they have:

Luna, in stiff Jawbreaker for putting, and more premium plastic as the Nova replacement.

Anax replaces the Thunderbird.

Zeus replaces the Destroyer.

And then there's the Zone, which Innova never could successfully duplicate...

Which is ironic since it was Discraft's attempt to duplicate the Rhyno!
