I'll be curious to see what he throws in the upcoming months. There are tons of ways Nikko and Innova could branch off, does he primarily gravitate towards the Discmania molds due to a lack of current sigs, do some of the current sigs change to acommodate Nikko, or will new molds come out gracing his name?

I think the move is good for Nikko, I'm sure the sponsorship deal is more than what he was getting in the past especially if his sponsorship is heavily loaded with victory bonuses. The deal is good for Innova, having probably the biggest present day name as one of your guys is always good. I think gateway will still sell a bunch of putters, the biggest hit they will take will be in the public eye for losing arguably the biggest name in the sport to "the evil empire". But then again you could argue that they lost out a long time ago since he was already throwing a mixed bag.

I'm pretty sure every Innova pro will end up throwing PD2's for overstable distance.

Why does everyone keeps asking what they will do about signature discs. You only get one for winning Worlds. So no matter what they don't have to worry about this till next spring if he happens to win this years Worlds. If this did happen I doubt it would be a discmania disc either. They would want the sig to be on an innova disc.

So far you've had to be a Finnish Champion to get a sig on a Discmania disc. =)

Hey man, we didn't mean to speculate about disc golf. We're sorry you're so mad.
