I agree with the first part. Second part no, I feel that Discraft as selected Paul to make a third line or a semi-separate line of discs from Discraft factories from Discraft called the McBeast line or something like that. These discs would be a line from Discraft factories the way Innova is with the Innova made discs for Discmania but in the same factory the way DGA is with Discraft.

Not the Luna, that feels like a disc that Paul had in mind for a long time with Innova. They did with most of the rest, maybe not his newest signature disc the Anyx made just for him, sounds like Paul McBeth had a chance to work with the Discraft company more to make that disc then he did with a few disc from Discraft.

If that were true then Innova would still make the Aero in production run.

Or Paul might be forced in that conract to deliver to get the money at all like having to make it to be on the final coverage the specific NT and PT events that are Discraft sponsored. Especially the Discraft Legstone Insurance open being a must win?

Also remember near middle to the end of the 2018 season Paul had back problems that cased him to drop out of a smaller event or two. Paul even had to go 2000's style with a big Innova submarine bag and quad straps at one point to help his back. Last year Paul could have had a back problem all year that caused him problems only later. Do remember that in practice the days before Tournaments the Pro players carry there own bag or pull a cart.

I would say that, maybe the whole Aerobie line up or the new version of the Quest AT discs in a Champion like plastic, even the 3 Instep discs the Mucury putter, Saturn midrange, and Pluto driver could Paul beat the field.

I agree Paul has the discs from one of the more consistent manufactures of discs (barring the change of Pro D in 2005-2006 era) dialed down to his preference.
