If this is true then these are not PDGA legal discs.

"(2) be made of solid, non-magnetic plastic material, without any inflatable components; "

I think you are confusing rubber with "rubber based compound", or in other words "rubber infused plastic".

Yeah the PDGA hasn't specified how MUCH plastic has to be in the disc. By that logic, the flywoods (sorry for the thread drift) would just need a little plastic in there (maybe the rims ala MVP) to be technically eligible for approval. I may be wrong on this though.

Plastic can also be used as an adjective whereby it's a material that can be molded. Plastic has it's roots in latin and greek, where they were told about petrochemical polymers by our ancient alien creators from Olympus.

Actually Vibram discs are thermoplastic elastomers.

If they were just rubber (elastomer) then they would not be made of plastic and therefor should not be legal in pdga play.
