He didn’t necessarily say the disc line was produced by Infinite. Could be a sales agreement…discs could be made by somebody else…EV7 cough cough…and Infinite will be the exclusive retailer of those discs.

Sure EV-7 now got a line with Drews name on it, but hard to see EV-7 making a complete line of faster discs

I think this is the most likely scenario.

EV7 is Phil Arthur…who was involved in Prodigy at the very beginning.

How many people has Drew killed with his putter?

Agreed. Phil told me, after the Phi was launched, they're a putter only company with no plans on anything else. Maybe plans change? I'm leaning towards doubting any change.

Good way for innova to sell discs that get coverage without having to pay the sponsorship.

The big talk about professionals designing their own discs has essentially boiled down to them renaming molds (wysocki grenade taking over for the whale) or recycling old/retired molds (mcbeth renaming the kong which already existed). Not saying they haven’t or can’t provide input or tweak things, but it has seemed far from disc golfers heading to the lab and carving a brand new frisbee out of clay.

Alas, I would guess Gibson will do the same and rename something existing, bring a mold out of retirement or, at most, tweak something in a minor way to make it seem fresh.

Cool if he gets a big hold of creating new discs, but hard to envision.

Unrelated, but seems like Disc tech has stalled out big time. Not too much hitting the shelves in the way of unique flights or feels. Even newly designed discs from brand new companies have counterparts that are close to equivalent if not exactly clones.

I think the Kong was a disc designed for Paul, he signed before it was approved. I think the name change was purely based on the fact that there were flying discs made by the dog toy company KONG already and there was a problem with that.
