Discraft has always been active in the Disc Golf Tour and played a major part in the Professional division, but in 2019, they made the gigantic leap to acquire the free agent of a lifetime. The Michael Jordan or Lebron James of basketball; The Tom Brady of Football; they acquired Paul McBeth to be a part of the Discraft team.

Not only did Paul McBeth join Discraft, but he has started his own personal line of discs that are being manufactured by Discraft. Currently as of 4/1/2019 there are two discs, the Luna which has been released as the Proto Putter and now is available as the Luna First Run. The 2nd disc is still only in the prototype phase the Discraft Kong, also known as the Proto Driver. It hasn’t been said if there will be additional discs made on Paul McBeth’s line, but the sell through for the first two discs have been through the roof! We can only hope Discraft finds it in their best interest to help Paul McBeth with more success and provide the Disc Golf community with more pure gems.
