Which tour series are you talking about specifically? the ones I named fly off the shelf in a days time, however other iterations such as the BW Nova, or HF roadrunner don't really move. And trust me, the dg community in my area is absolutely tremendous.

Second (or third, fourth?) level sponsorship. The chance to make a signature disc with other companies. Wouldn't surprise me if he has to ante up some of initial stamping costs. 50/50???

I've never understood why people perceive such a high value in retail discs. Now...if Paul (or some other major player) throws a putter in on 18 for the win and puts that into circulation...sure. But otherwise...not seeing it. ? ? ?

Solid overall game, and seems like a great person. Would love to see her form on the tee slowed down just a tad, and then get that explosive release. Seems like she's already at 90% speed during the first step.

Area disc golfer shocked to discover that some things have collectible value above retail. News at 11.

Prodigy opened new factory in US http://www.prodigydisc.eu/en/prodigy-disc-news/

And they seem to aim at expanding in Europe even more than before.

It was in how that disc flew, the reason that the mold is worth what people want to pay for them. I hope the market for some of the non good OOP molds ends up bust or else I fear then to get a tour series disc new from that year or a players designed disc on online Company sites might cost $30+ soon and with player designed discs they only have just enough to call a production by PDGA, 500.

I'm still working through the thread, so if this was said already, apologies in advance.

IMHO no matter what was said! Gibson left Trilogy because he and his 'teammates' did not like each other, and Gibson did not fit into the "Disc golf is love, disc golf is life" mantra.

Yeah the Disc Golf is life part was what I thought, as in Gibson has a life outside of Disc golf and did not vibe with the Mantra/goals for the Dynamic Disc team.
