- Gary Faulkner Jr. left Motiv and joined Storm
- Taylor Bulthuis (PWBA) left Columbia 300 and joined 900 Global
- Amanda Vermilyea (PWBA) has left Hammer and will announce her new company in the near future.

Saw on Taylor Bulthuis FB that she will be able to throw Storm and Roto as well. That itself is quite a big change. Will we see Rash throwing a Trend? ;D

Sean Rash on his Facebook and Instagram pages showed pictures of some Storm and Roto balls that he's drilling up to go with his 900 Global arsenal.  It looks like the staffers will be able to throw all 3 brands now.

I believe that 900 Global staffers are free to throw anything from the Storm and Roto Grip lineups but Storm and Roto Grip staffers can't throw anything 900 Global yet.

As of the 1st of the year, we are allowed to use 900 Global as well.

There's been multiple posts of Storm/Roto staffers throwing some 900G now. VideoBallReviews has a video with the Zen up on YouTube as well

I think it's perfect tho, he's regional to the company. It's a barneys columbia/900 thing.

Motiv is pretty strong here in indiana/michigan with ej and smallwood.

Makes sense to me

Definitely the most surprising news of all the moves IMO

Actually, Charlie had been a free agent for the last year or two.

Looking at the PWBA Kickoff Classic, looks like Erin McCarthy has made the move from Hammer to Motiv.
