Nikko WTF

I'm sorry if I missed this, I haven't really been paying too much attention to the disc golf world, but when did he switch to Innova and why?

It is a pretty big coup for Innova and really does make Gateway look bad. It's too bad Gateway couldn't offer Nikko what he was looking for. He's a big name and will probably be a big name for a while.

Also I wonder if he is gonna go to rocs or if he is gonna stay with a beadless mid and throw lycans or cros.

Due to my ability to go to their site and check it out, it says he's using rocs. What is surprising to me is that he is using P&As as his putter.

Any guesses on what the Nikko signature disc will be in the near future?

I talked with some local guys about this too, but it seems that gateway really can't give any of the touring pros what they are looking for, considering the 'team' is basically just guys that work at the shop now.

I will say, though, that Dave is a really good course designer, and the Titan basket is the best on the market right now. I think that's mainly where his focus is, in expanding the sport and giving everyone good targets to shoot at. Whether the PDGA tour is a big part of his plan for expanding the sport or not, but evidence would lead you to conclude otherwise.

R aviar putt&app the new wizards?

is the lycan the new ion?

will innova crack down on nikko's renegade blog postings?

is 130gram the new 175gram?

is now a good or bad time to buy/sell your gateway stock?

should someone do a dissertation on the economic impact of nikko's switch?
