EXP1's are not really very good Champ Banshee replacements IMO. Champ Banshees are quite a bit more OS. EXP1's are good drivers but they are a lot closer to a DX Banshee and not really all that...

So far as the baseline plastic variations in the cold, I've always noticed baseline plastic stiffening in the cold. That goes all the way back to the first really soft putter, the SS Omega. When...

I think it was 2014 sometime. They have not run the G9i's in a while, but you can still get them.

Fossil is a perfect putter plastic. I have Scales in that plastic and I'm sure Fossil Wizards are great. I'd have to order those, though. You don't see them around. You can't kick a dead cat...

That would have been a pretty empty ban since it would have been impossible to enforce. I think they did the most reasonable thing by just getting them out of the market and not worrying about the...

Actually the discs Gateway really threw a fit about were the Champ Firebirds that were out as the same time as the G9i Wizards. They couldn't pass a flex test, either. Again, no idea if the PDGA...

Gremlin said PDGA approved for something like seven years before it was actually approved. Innova argued that it was a retooled Sniper so it should have been legal under that approval when the rules...

Exactly. Allowing the manufacturers to tweak molds with no retesting is a huge loophole that should be closed.

In this case I'd settle for the discs that are considered "legal" to be clearly...

Also LOL at "too cumbersome for manufacturers." You mean "too cumbersome for Innova." Nobody else is doing this. Discraft has all the OS/SS discs approved so far as I can tell.

Innova 3 series discs-approved?

I can't seem to find this answer so I'll post it and hope Chuck chimes in.

The Innova 3 series discs are not on the PDGA approved list, but they are used in PDGA play. The assumption would be...

Yeah, the reason the Phenix has funny tooling is that it is the original Aero tooling; after the mold started yielding crappy Aero's they used it to create a mold for a different disc.
