I wonder if Paige made any attempt to renegotiate the remaining year(s) of her contract with DD, or if she simply gave notice and jumped ship. It's a moot point now, of course. Just a matter of curiosity for me.

Ultimately I think PP leaving Dynamic makes sense. Paige is constantly winning elite level events, or at least in close contention. That's not exactly on-brand for DD.

I wonder about the details of Paige’s DD contract. Is it possible she had a player option built into it, and she simply decided to opt out? Conversely, did someone buy her out of her contract, or did DD perhaps choose to let her go, with no compensation? I’m sure it was not lost on them the way Paige’s final season with Prodigy went when she had decided she wanted to move on.
Anyway, I’m excited for this move, because I think it signals someone (Discraft? Innova? Discmania?) is interested in really investing in women’s disco golf, which is awesome.

Very classy move.
They also saw exactly the same thing play out when she was at Prodigy. They are well aware of how poorly Prodigy came off out of that exchange and wanted no part of it.

That picture is clearly her. And this video could clearly be about her. BUT, that also looks like a thumbnail that YouTube snagged at random. It does not fit in with their other thumbnails at all. That video could also be about Henna who hasn't said where she is going yet.

I am sure we will know more soon.

Related thought: players signing multi-year deals would be really wise to have player option years past year 2.

Note that Innova helped create the women's Throw Pink org and is a big supporter of the bi-annual Women's Global event plus Paige won the Performance version of the USDGC one year.

I would make the argument that DD invested in promoting FPO disc golf. Obviously you can always put more into anything, and maybe her new sponsor will. But Paige was the face of that company and they did a pretty good job at promoting her.

I always hope that someone puts in more effort to promoting disc golf, MPO & FPO. But, I have multiple PP signature series discs from DD.
