The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
I am sorry, I never should have posted that comment given that I would not be willing to follow it up with a statement of facts and sources. That was silly of me. I also should not have used the word "any;" I should have said "some." I know of some who were also dropped around the same time.
Like I said not a "World Champ."
Not that his wins and ambassadorship is not valuable to Innova.....
Thanks for clarifying. Sounds like you have some solid info and it definitely fits the narrative. If that's really the line of thinking Dave was on, I wouldn't be surprised to hear that some of my buddies were--or will soon be--dropped as well. Bummer. I can't imagine it would ever be good to lose such needed support, but hopefully they'll share some of Nikko's luck (and skill!) and make their next step a BIG one in an even better direction!
Apparently there are some (somewhat controversial) theories out there. Not sure how accurate their musings are, but it is definitely relevant to this conversation and along the lines of what Justin said earlier in the thread about Innova molding a disc to fit Nikko's Wizard needs.
Here's what Nikko has to say about the move, via his announcement on his blog:
I just know that for me i use innova but mostly gateway. Gateway has awesome products.
SICKDISC.com would like to sponsor Nikko's hair as long as he doesn't cut it.
you win because of my poor choice of word use :)
stick with gateway putters, they are prime
He cut his hair short.
