Yeah I heard Paul say that too but it’s weird that on his Instagram live when I asked Eagle about it, he said his contract was up at the end of this year. It also seems like if he did re-up, it wouldn’t just be for one year at this point. But since all the other moves were leaked I would think there’d at least be some rumblings if he were going elsewhere.

But then again, what the heck does a team captain in dg do anyway?

Dude has put in his dues.

Plus like others have said it's a sort of homecoming for him.

Wouldn't be surprised if he stayed on through the rest of his professional career.

And having met him, I'm pretty sure every pro disc golfer out there gets along with him.

X1's have been out of production for more than a year. The mold broke, I believe.
The X2 is probably overstable enough for him.

The X2, at least the ones I've thrown, aren't that overstable even for me.
They pop up from a slight hyzer and get some turn before fading at the end.

Prodigy may have a few X1s in house reserved for their pros otherwise he'll have to go on the open market and buy from people like me that have extra. But they're getting really pricey.

The closest thing that I've found to an X1 is a Proto D1 but good luck prying them out of my hands either.

Probably mostly public relations stuff, like talking to groups of people. That has never really been Paul McBeth's strength, which is probably why McBeth toured with Nate Sexton for those years. Not only is Sexton a great player, he is good at talking it up with people.

Let me know when Nybo does something headline-worthy and then you can come back and try to reinstate the initials. I believe in this thread if were talking about a hot mover KJ, everyone knows who we really are talking about. Other that insisting just because.

But I like "Kevin" too.

Kevin Jones is a great get for Prodigy. Paul and Ricky have gotten most of the attention lately for their moves, but Jones landing with Prodigy is a significant. That dude has superstar written all over him. Not only does he have the potential to be an elite player in the MPO division, he has the potential to move a lot of plastic: People like Kevin Jones. He's young, he bombs, he actually looks like an athlete, he's well-spoken as far as pro disc golfers go, and it's cool to root for him already. Based on the jumps he's made in the last year he could be Prodigy's best known pro by the end of the year if he continues on the same trajectory.

Everyone acts like Prodigy is crashing, but they still sell tons of plastic in the Southeast and have a very good MPO team. Jones is on the up and is exciting to watch. Dickerson wins tons of tournaments, just won the Pro Tour Championship event, and is poised to break onto the national scene even more as he plans to tour more next year. Seppo Paju's putt looked MUCH better at the end of the season after he re-worked it, and now he has all winter to cement his new putting style. Seppo with good putting is a dangerous, dangerous player. Will returning to form is still a possibility and even if he doesn't he's still a big name, a great teacher, and an excellent ambassador for Prodigy. Cale still owns Minnesota and remains perennial top 15 when he plays big events. Matty O is the Alabama equivalent of Cale.

Prodigy's pro lineup matches up pretty well against any other manufacturer's.
