"Spacer" is not a shape. If we're talking shapes, "spacer" should be replaced with blunt or flat. The PDGA provides a rim configuration number, why don't we compare those? The great thing is that...

Thank you, and yes, I created all the graphics and animation. I just want to clarify, I don't believe "spacers" exist either. I had to go back and check, but I did state "Hence, I still don't believe...

Where to start....

Bear with me as I try to explain the basic concept behind how a mold works for a disc. As always, if you have any questions at the end, I'd be more than happy to answer them.

Very true. The draft angle of the taller core would have to match that of the stripper plate to create a proper shutoff. And as you stated, it defeats the purpose of keeping costs down.

An interesting experiment would be to take the overall height difference between the Magnet and Titanic, as well as the difference in flight plate thickness. If a spacer was used, the delta for each...

If I get some time after work tomorrow I'll throw together a mold design and throw in the "spacer" to better explain why I don't think they are used. The one thing to remember is that if a spacer was...

I agree with this. As someone who has toyed around with designing discs, when you get down to it, you are confined to a very small box when it comes to disc geometry. It would be very difficult more...
