is Pauls $250000 a year the ONLY one we know for sure or has any other players said what they make?

I think JVD meant min $100000 as a base salary. . .Paul must have made a fortune in disc sales in 2019.

Simons disc sales is probably good. .but most of his sig. disc seems to sell out. . so he could make more if they made more discs

He might make more, up to a point. You gotta keep the demand high by keeping supply low.

Aren't all his sig discs manufactured by Innova? Discmania doesn't tell Innova how many discs of a run they will manufacture. This was documented by how many people complained about the low amount of DD3s that were originally made.

I believe this is what led Discmania to pursue other companies to manufacture their discs.

Wouldn't it be Innova not telling Discmania how many they will manufacture? And wouldn't Innova have to abide by whatever order DM placed?

Or maybe I'm misunderstanding you. ?

I would be SHOCKED if Jerm makes 100k a year. He's made 20k from PDGA events this year, the other 80k from sponsor matching, disc sales, commentary? again...SHOCKED.

I highly doubt Innova would abide by whatever DM tells them to do. Before DM reached out to other manufacturers, they were reliant on Innova. Innova didn't rely on DM at all.

Let's say you make $10 for every disc you manufacture. Some company comes up to you and says they'll pay you $7 for every disc you manufacture for them to sell. Obviously you aren't going to prioritize manufacturing their discs.

I agree with you in thinking that Jerm may not be one of the $100,000 players. But you forgot to mention his salary. $20,000 in winnings if "matched" by Innova puts him at $40,000. It's possible he could make $10k -$20k from discs/commentary. Adding in salary, that probably puts him close to $100,000. Purely guesstimation though.

I saw him staying at the same hotel I was at for a big tournament. It cost me ≈ $1,000 for a week. If he can afford that lifestyle for the entire tour, than he's probably doing alright.

Again, i think JVD coment was that he knew of 6 players that had a salary of +$100000 . . so just the salary

Points well taken, thanks. But....even if Innova is matching tour income 100% that still leaves 60k from disc sales and commentary. That would still be surprising to me if he made that much from those 2 income streams.

Again, you are forgetting salary.
