Yeah I'm well versed in all that.

Was just trying to understand his bad information.

Which fits his persona and is actually the case.
This is a great Casey impression, well done.

It also doesn't list Austin Turner on the Elite Team. He may be one in negotiations, or dropped as he doesn't really seem to fit the bill as an elite player.

I could see Anthony Barela moving to Discraft as the big splash this off-season.

Barela is something that I predicted when Paul moved over. But, I think he needs to be on tour more consistent before that happens.

Perhaps add speculation on this thread of players who may give up touring and also new players who may be touring full-time next year.

I don't have any but figured some on here might be able to provide some or even just speculate. For example, where do we think Nikko will end up? Sponsored for full-time play, continue as part-timer unsponsored or stepping back to do other things?

That’s an interesting idea, especially when you pair that with some of the bigger deals the top top tier players have landed in the last year or so.

You would expect as a whole the sport is growing, so are these larger deals there because there’s more money for manufacturers to dispose of, or are these bigger contracts cannabilizing the second or third tier deals?

I saw what I did too late for the edit window, and it looked like the post was going to quietly be overlooked so no need to bring attention to it. Guess that was wrong too.

About this time last year Barsby did a quick series of events doing 1 round 3 disc tournaments playing with two of his stamped discs and your own putter. Afterward hanging out at a brewery and a putting clinic I was talking with him mostly about a course he designed in an area I was working. Great course, loads of potential... more problems with property owner and isolation and cost for it to take off.
From all the speculation here I wanted him to sign one of my Eagles. I grabbed a Star Eagle and when I brought it over he said "oh is this one penned S.EX? I love those!"

Nah... too new for that. We then had a short conversation about Eagles. Some talk about 12x and 11x eagle L vs the one he had for the event as well we talked some about the Star/champ and Champy-Star runs which are my favorite. Some thoughts about some of the later 11X and first 12x opaque champs might be the same run just stamped a while apart.
I for some reason when I typed merged a bunch of that stuff in my head.
