I think that percentage may be low.

Buzzz always goes towards the top when they release new stamps. Especially when those full foil are so sweet

Paul’s move is obviously a huge part in discrafts spike in sales. But I also give discraft props for stepping up there social media game.

Today, Buzzz is #2 with the Undertaker at #7 and Comet at #14.
Buzzz is #1, Undertaker has fallen to #11, Comet is #15, Heat on the list at #16. Everything else is Innova.

I am not sure there is a good argument for the Heat and Undertaker being on that list for any other reason than McBeth.

Paul sold a lot of heats by throwing one roller.

Give it a couple of months and people will be complaining that the Heat is not a good roller because they can't throw an uphill roller with it like McBeth.

I don't know, people don't complain the Destroyer is a bad disc because they can't throw it like McBeth does, and 90+% can't.

Hell, the Nova is touchy as all hell, crazy straight if you throw it right, but dang.

That's not the way the internet works at all. Give it a couple months and people will be bagging the Heat and not throwing it, then saying "I shoulda thrown my Heat on a roller there... I can get 600' uphill with that disc on a roller."

I'm not sure that is what people are saying. Indeed, I think they are saying that is absolutely true. Pros move the needle. The question is, does the movement of the needle cover the added cost? If I'm selling a disc for $20 and it costs me $15 to make it, then I make $5 per disc. If I now slice off $1 per disc to give to Paul, how many more discs do I have to sell to break even, little alone to make more money? Revenue doesn't equal profit. Increased revenue doesn't equal making more money. It can, but it isn't a foregone conclusion.

To get Paul, Discraft laid out a chunk of change. Or that is the rumor. Now, they may have captured some from other players moving out, so we don't really know their overall numbers. But the numbers we're hearing are a good bit, relative to their reported revenue.

These kinds of discussions tell me clearly why our generation is broke though.

Look, Discraft is a great company. They have been around a long time and have made great products. I play some of their discs. The questions that people are asking aren't fanboi, they aren't stupid, they have to do with risk and reward and cash flow. Well, okay some of them are fanboi and are quite silly, but that doesn't mean thinking about the cash movement within the company isn't legit, and interesting.
