Paul's 51 was good for a 1088, Simon's 53 a 1074. Grand Rapids local Jon Perry with a 53 as well! :thmbup:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he has already surpassed that record? PDGA website has him at $35924. Have to add $7000 for SO, $4480 for EO, $6000 for Worlds. That puts him at $53404...

I originally picked up a DX Colt just for the stamp, but I like the feel of the disc in my hand and will now be ordering another to throw. Not sure who designed the stamp, but it's pretty spot on....

The first thing I thought when I saw the disc profile provided by Discraft was "Hey, that looks pretty much like a Warlock". If that's the case, I look forward to throwing it.

I understand there is probably a great deal of craftsmanship and care that go into making these wood discs, but when did the price increase to $50 a piece?!? I may be mistaken, but I thought they...

Was hoping someone could shed some light on the disc pictured below. I believe its a VP. As you can see the rubber is EXTREMELY soft, so much so that I can't keep it from deforming when taking a...

"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...

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.
