Likely because people value sustained success/high level play. I considered Schusterick for one of the "in the conversation" spots but he has dropped off so much. He's currently sub-1000 rated. Meanwhile Nikko is currently at 1023. Barry is currently rated 1028!

Only Climo, Barry, and McBeth have won Player of the Year more times than Nikko (tied at 3 with Ricky.)

Tru, but the field in FPO masters is NOT big at all. . .so quite "easy" to rack up wins for a good player.

If Juliana got her 223 wins in mostly open FPO at a 70% win rate, thats even more impressive

But it´s fun that Elaine still plays in open, would have been fun to see Juliana out there

At her peak Juliana was rated 968, thats just a few points of Paiges rating today

P McB is the greatest champion disc golf has seen. I don't think it's close. Not taking anything away from Climo and the other guys, but I think of their era as the "leatherheads" of disc golf. They were the best for their era, but it is a new era.

You misunderstood what I was saying.

There is no such thing as "FPO masters"- FPO=Female Professional Open. Elaine only plays FPM (Female Professional Masters) once or twice a year. "open FPO" is a redundancy. Elaine continues to primarily play FPO to this day against ladies half her age. Had Juliana kept playing and doing this her winning percentage would be much lower. For what it is worth I would probably still rank Juliana as number one based primarily on the fact that I consider cashing at USDGC the greatest accomplishment of any female player to date.

Sounds like some recency bias.

I learned this a long time ago. I watched Scott Stokely play in his prime (late 90's) and was flat-out blown away. He was a walking, talking best shot video waiting to happen. I watched Ron Russell play, he was good. He won, and I saw him throw a couple of killer rollers. I was impressed, but several notches below blown away.

Russell won World's, Stokely didn't, and I'm not qualified to rank disc golfers.

Not at all. P McB is a better disc golfer than Climo ever was.

There are six people who have won multiple world championships. I think the all-time top 5 has to come from that list.

1. Ken
2. Paul
3. Barry
4. Ricky
5. Nate

Sorry Harold.
