My understanding is that Innova just buys leftover/castoff plastic pellet lots from much larger companies. The problem as I understand it is that the only way to get a very specific plastic formula...

Umm, Latitude does that, which is what ZAM was talking about. The weight is printed in raised numbers on the disc just like the disc name itself. Have you not looked at the underside of any Trilogy...

Looks a lot like a Bard to me. Seems like Trilogy people mostly throw Verdicts or Bards so Latitude is probably trying to get a piece of that action.

Yeah, but Discraft's weight stickers are the worst! They don't come off easily and they leave behind a nasty residue. And if you throw the disc a couple times before remembering to take off the...

Is that really true? I figured that they just had a better handle on mixing their weighting agent into the plastic to get a mix that would provide the exact weight they wanted to run and then used a...

I don't have the ungodly arm of Marmoset or Sydex. I generally max out around 400 with distance drivers on golf lines. I usually throw Thunderbirds for shots between 330 and 375 depending on the...

Oh yeah both those seem entirely possible. I think most people have noticed that the McBeth Destroyers tend to be more overstable than the last round of Avery's. This could just be a change in the...

This is a good point and a counter to my blanket statement above that all discs would be too light without the weighting agent. I think that is true of a lot of molds, but certainly not all. Some...

Keep in mind that what is approved by the PDGA is the mold itself (via the surrogate of a single disc produced from that mold). Once that mold is approved, it's up to the manufacturers to ensure...

In terms of dimensions, there is a certain amount of shrinkage after the plastic leaves the mold. The amount of shrinkage varies both by conditions (temperature, humidity) and plastic type (baseline...

My understanding is that they use a weighting agent additive. If they didn't, I think all discs would be way too light. So they must vary the ratio of weighting agent to regular plastic pellets.

Okay I will amend what I said a little. I think the "grab" people are talking about has to do with the spin on the disc. Since soft putters are generally used for spin putting, the spin on the disc...

I don't like the term "grab chains" because I think the friction between the disc and the chains on impact has a pretty negligible effect on the disc staying in. That being said, soft discs deform...

So you're saying they could have a code or date on the mold itself which would be easy for them to change run to run or day to day and wouldn't cost them anything to change? I guess that's probably...
