However, flexes are getting more and more rare on the field, it only makes sense the thread would start to fall off as well.

In my experience, sponsorship tends to cost more than not being sponsored.

My shortest stay on a team went the following:
him: welcome to the team, as you know we are sponsored by Angel, so you need to at least shoot and angel and if possible get a jersey
me: but I like my shocker
him: yeah, but the agreement says we have to shoot angels.
me: ...good luck with your team.

Yeah, people are too quick to sign up for a sponsorship. They start a team then immediately send off for sponsorship. Then they get back "yeah, we'll give you 10% off but you have to buy over a thousand dollars worth of gear, because we want you to rep our product.

We had empire trying to get us to go all in, but we are not playing psp and the only benefit is the paint aspect. The gear impo is not worth the buy in. We're playing wcppl and empire isn't a sponsor.

What I'm saying is a team should definitely wait until they have a decent resume before they apply for a sponsorship.
Show that "hey, we won X number tourneys and often place in the top 3. Our team has been around for over a year." and they are more likely to give you a better deal than someone who says "hey, we formed a week ago, can we have some free stuff?"

If you can show that you can regularly display a companies banner on the winners podium companies will fight to give you a better deal so that you show off their banner and not someone else's.

Which is why whenever anyone asks me about sponsorship I tell them to build a resume before they apply for a sponsorship so that they have some clout to negotiate with.

How many current Flexs does everyone own?

I'm fairly confident I've found the last two sets of Digi Boston frames but no idea where the last bottom is.

Sitting at 4, with some parts left over. Though not bad for 2 months back in the game.
I won't pay overinflated prices for old stuff so I'm limited at the moment. Not to mention I try and keep them super clean. No cotton candy motif's, I would never plasti dip, or dye. And colored soft ears are just gross.

I would only plastidip if I could test it on a real poor set first. Those products are getting better and better all the time.
