I think people who will buy discs because theyre in his bag will buy them regardless is Black Friday. Why sell them on sale when you can sell them full price a week later?

I'm pretty sure the kids are already running out and buying Forces and Undertakers.

He signed his Discraft contract last Saturday, as was mentioned on the Smashboxx pod.

It was definitely shopped, I think some people were just wondering if it was shopped by people at Discraft or someone else having fun. I thought it looked legit.

Ohhh that's something obvious I didn't really think of...why would he market the discs/release an in the bag immediately if his personal stamps or incentivized discs aren't available yet?

I mean with the timeframe of getting that stuff out there'll likely be news or media of it soon, but still.

I cant say Ive listened to any of the interviews yet, has their been any clarification on whether were talking about a handful of existing discraft molds with his name on them and he gets a cut of sales, or an actual separate entity with them doing the molding?

What sticks out to me is the 4 year aspect. I could see the end result being his own product line, with a couple of new unique molds released every year.

So basically starting 100% discraft sponsored and throwing their stuff, and slowly migrating over to a 100% McBeth bag. That gives him time to put out quality molds and keeps everybody on the hook for the new releases. Eventually the playing days wind down and hes got a source of income for the rest of his life.

And as far as some of the other announcements go, youd have to assume there were rumors floating out there as to what he was gonna land. Either people are waiting for the domino effect to see where they can land the best deal, or maybe waiting for the discraft deal to be announced and following him over.

Interesting point.

Better stock up on Pre-McBeth runs while you can!

Did anyone else watch the live stream of Paul walking through the drivers he's been testing out? I went super fangirl when he answered 2 of my questions. Really stoked to see him throwing a Zombee!
It was really cool to see his throwing all of the discs. Looking forward to the next 2 episodes.

Enjoyed the shoutout to MJ when he referenced testing the Mantis.

Seems like he is digging the force, mantis, undertaker, predator, and heat.

Didn't seem like he was too crazy about the nuke. Glo Z Crank seemed more reliable for him. I could see that and the Nuke OS being in and out of the bag for him.

Seemed like he enjoyed the Vulture fight but was stuck on the larger diameter feel. It also seemed like the Z mantis flew a similar line and distance for him.

I couldn't tell on the punisher. He liked the feel. It seems odd, but I could almost see that becoming his thunderbird type disc. Straighter controlled distance.
