They are both paid to sell discs. How they choose to do that is up to them. Uli is not giving clinics out of the goodness of his heart. It is not like McBeth trotted out every disc Discraft makes. He chose a handful that could legitimately fill holes in his bag and told us what he thought about them. He did not claim that video was anything than what it is. And every in the, building the, whatever the bag ever done has been to sell either discs or the person in the video as a personality. And remember, you don't have to watch.

Like with the Nuke (probably a big seller for Discraft), calling it fast but touchy.

I didn't like how they had him throwing up hill though.

Almost every stable/OS disc is going to fade out when throwing uphill with a tailwind and some newer players might not understand that.
I actually think pros doing this is better than on flat ground. Not only, as others have pointed out, for the ability to get good video but also because it makes the discs fly more like they might for a mortal.

I watched the video, and in case anybody from Jomez is trolling the forums, here's my take:
First, thanks for the content. I may have suggestions, but I appreciate that it was created and released.
Second, after watching a few disc review videos this year, it seems like it was a hashed-together, spur-of-the-moment piece that was a somewhat lacking in the polish that we have come to expect from Jomez.
I did like the bling post-filming graphics, but it didn't help me understand the disc. Not sure how it could've been better, but not high on the helpful scale.
My preference for filming would have been flat ground with overhead drone filming with distance grid lines and a tracking line to show the flight path.
These are what I would've liked to see, not a criticism of anyone who liked it.
After all the disc review vids I've seen, this one just fell short.
Better than some, not as good as others.

The point being the elite players deserve better treatment from sponsors and it appears we are either there...or very close.

Same.

Plus, I'm switching to all Discraft because of Streets, not PMcB.

He has also been on the lead card a couple times this year. If you will remember, it was McBeth doing commentary, talking about how stable Dollar's ?Photon? ?Phase? was.

In the commentary, they were saying Photon, but it looked like the Phase to me.
San Francisco open? Or was that Jeff faes?

But you might know him as the guy Bad Brad shoulder bumped at Ledgestone...
First time or second time Bradley caught on film doing that?

I'm curious about what Ulibarri will be throwing b/c I'm a nerd after all but not as curious as with McBeth b/c whenever a Prodigy guy rattles off the discs they throw my brain just glazes over. Same reason why I'm not patient enough to play Bingo. I have no idea what Ulibarri's bread and butter molds were except some sort of overstable putter (A1?) and I think the M4.
