I think it was the old style of top model Prodigy basket that nobody liked even pro players sponsored by Prodigy. Hence the change to the top model Prodigy basket so that I can see in video all you need to do is hard putt to make it in the basket and not Slam putt/driver putt like the older style.

The only baskets worthy of anyone’s disdain are Mach Xs, which are easily the worst design since the Mach 3.
Mach III is not bad, not great but not bad, about the same level as a Lighting DB-5. The Mach X I would have a slight problem putting not seeing the pole as well. I am a right hand putter and on a basket I use the right side edge of pole to help with aiming for my putts.

I think every single one of their world champs since Climo used an aviar. Including the reining world champ, both of the players argued as the greatest of all time, and their current top pro.

To be fair Innova have not had that many World champs since Klimo´s last win in 2006 . .but sure both Gregg, Avery and Val Jenkins putts with Aviars ( The only Innova World champs after Klimo in 2006? )

I think the Firefly is for Nate Sexton to get him of the P2. . . and maybe Jerm as well?

Nate and Jerm is arguably two of Innovas most popular players. . and they have putted with P2 the last years

I may be wrong but i feel like Innova and Discmania more and more want their top players to be "brand lojal"

I agree and even back in the 2000's Innova made the JK Aviar so that Juliana Korver could be using fully Innova brand discs and not need the side brand Millennium putter a Soft BB Omega that basically uses an older Aviar BB mold for a putter. So Innova for a long time has tried to keep the sponsored players using Innova only and not the side brands. However with Discmania, Innova let that slide since the discs were stored in the Innova warehouse unlike Millennium discs that I am not sure if Millennium has its own warehouse but I think they would if Innova was going to all that trouble in the 2000's to keep players using Innova.

Now Discmania kind of wants to get the same thing since Discmania now has its own warehouse due to the other brand partnerships that Discmania has as of 2019 and they do not really want the players using Innova brand discs like they used to do.

What??

I’m assuming Feldberg was sponsored by Innova when he won in 2008? I’m not certain, because I had no idea that disc golf existed until a few years later, but I know he was sponsored by Innova before Lat. Right?

If so, then that would mean that more than half of the Worlds titles have been won by an Innova sponsored player since 2006. Even if Feldy wasn’t with Innova in 2008, that’s still 6/12...

Feldburg was with Innova when he won his world title in 2008, it was not until 2011-2012 or so that Feldburg went to Latitude 64 and Latitude 64 had enough discs and money coming in to have pro sponsored players.

Schultz, Paul, Avery, Climo, Feldberg, Barsby all won world championships with an Aviar. They're not short on champions with an aviar.

No one has ever won a world championship with a P2.

Outside of Paul, they all won with KC Aviars. Cam Todd was another player who won worlds with Innova in the early 2000's but almost immediately went to Discraft afterwards lol.
