Top 10 PUAs of 2009
TSB Magazine Presents
TSB Magazine has been around now for over 5 years. Over the past couple years we have become extremely involved in the pick-up and seduction community. We have had the opportunity to personally interview many of the top coaches and instructors. We have been invited to attend various boot camps and seminars.
We have personally sarged with instructors, and have had behind the scenes conversations with many in the community.
We have also had the opportunity to view hundreds of hours of infield video and audio from various pick up artists and instructors, as well as talk to many students who have attended various boot camps.
It is with all of this information that we have decided to honor The Top 10 Pick Up Artists of 2009.
How we have based our rankings:
Above all, we conducted a survey that received well over 10,000 responses. So everyone on this list has the support of thousands and thousands of aspiring pickup artists.
The top 10 list will comprise of PUAs who have demonstrated tremendous ability both in the field, and teaching others the skills. The top PUA must be active within the community, and have testimonials from people outside his own organization.
Here are the main areas of focus:
Underneath the Top 10 we have also included some individual awards and honorable mentions.
So without further waiting…
Ever since Sinn left the Mystery Method a few years back he has steadily risen to become one of the elite PUAs in the field.
Over the past year Sinn has continued to innovate his game, refining it, fine tuning it, and then turning around and teaching it to the community.
He is the self proclaimed “King of Content” and it is hard to argue that nick name. I don’t think there is anyone out there who gives away as much free information and insights as Sinn. Between his blog, podcasts, interviews, teleseminars, and free reports, Sinn has been educating and inspiring thousands of aspiring pickup artist over the past year.
In addition to the free material Sinn has created several breakthrough products like his day game course, no flaking, and his entire 12 months to mastery program gets rave reviews.
Sinn’s infield game is bar none. Even his detractors and critiques will NEVER argue that he possesses powerful infield presence and ability to deliver on his promises.
Next to Sinn, I would have to say that Richard La Ruina has provided more free content, articles, reports, interviews, free DVDs, then just about anyone out there.
And he is continually innovating and introducing new concepts and ideas into the game.
The guy has an entourage of women surrounding him at all times. And the guys who attended the Spring Break seminar got to see his game in action… and were not disappointed.
Some people have been skeptical about accepting PUA Training as a major player in the bootcamp industry… but the numbers don’t lie. And guys are signing up for these bootcamps like crazy.
Richard La Ruina was a clear favorite in the polls.
Last year’s #1 pickup artist drops a few notches… not because his game got worse, but simply because he kept out of the lime light in 2009.
While Brad’s bootcamps and audio trainings continue to get fantastic feedback… I believe that his reluctance to “reveal” himself on camera is starting to catch up to him.
Brad P’s infield ability is LEGENDARY. And I would bet that if Brad ever came out and released infield footage- it would blow everyone on this list a way.
That being said, 2009 was still a good year for Brad. And look forward to what he will be coming out with in 2010.
Over the past couple years he, along with Mr. M, have put out some completely revolutionary stuff on inner game, social circle game, and the upcoming phone and text game. And you can always find an article that will teach you something over at his blog.
Braddock is HUGELY popular with his students. And has the respect of his peers for his infield ability.
Cap off 2009 with an appearance on the Tyra Banks show…and it’s hard to argue that Braddock doesn’t deserve to be in the top 5.
I can only see things getting brighter for Braddock in 2010…
And although he didn’t exactly revolutionize anything in 2009… I think it’s safe to say that just about any PUA out there owes a great deal of their game to Mystery.
Not only did Mystery influence the style of game that nearly everyone uses… but he also revolutionized the way pickup is taught. Mystery is the pioneer of the “infield bootcamp.” Although hundreds of have followed in his footsteps, it was Mystery who first put it on the line and took students out for infield demonstrations of what he was teaching.
There is no arguing that Mystery skill picking up beautiful women is second to none. You will find people who say a lot of bad things about Mystery. But you won’t find anyone who claims Mystery is not everything he is cracked up to be in field.
The amount of votes that Mystery received this year proves that his prescense is still greatly felt in the community.
And maybe missed…
