Same here man! But they would have to have beer in their hands too before I would be tempted to drop my Rivers or Saints!

Im going to take boiling water to the dome of one of my amps and take it out for a test tommorow. We will see how a flat top AMP compares to the norm. Should be interesting to see.

I predict it will have more turn, probably more speed, and bomb

Ok i just flattened one of the domes. they used to be exactly the same, now it looks like this:



Cant wait to test the flight tomorrow

I just boiled 2 cups of water and poured the boiling water into the disc while it was upside down on a flat surface.

I did this twice to get it real flat

This isn't a knock on you Plex, but altering your discs is illegal for tourney play, right?

C. Players may not make post-production modification of discs which alter their original flight characteristics. This rule does not forbid inevitable wear and tear from usage during play or the moderate sanding of discs to smooth molding imperfections or scrape marks. Discs excessively sanded or painted with a material of detectable thickness are illegal. See sections 802.01 D, E and F.
Its kind of foggy, but it would be impossible to prove i did this anyways.. im not shaving off plastic or anything.. just lowering the dome a little, something that naturally happens over time. If i wanted to i could tune it with my hands and make it have lower dome.. i have seen many pros throw discs with caved in domes, beat flat, etc.. no difference.

besides, there's other ways to "unintentionally" lower dome

Sure if he admits to it. Been discussed a ton on here. No harm in making a disc like another one you already have or have seen.

Oh yea, nobody would notice it, or call a player on it. I was just curious.

I'm discussing this on DGR right now and it's one of the rules I think should be changed.

Currently the rule says you cannot alter the "original flight characteristics" and that's a lousy rule as far as I can tell because nobody seems to care, and you're gaining no real advantage, so... Yeah.

Anyway, I'm of the opinion that it's a goofy rule that should be changed. Particularly given the 2013 rule about "questioning the legality" of another player's disc and that disc not being available to them until the TD can inspect it and rule.

Rocs for example. There are flat ones and domey ones and everything in between. If I can make a roc like what I like what is the big deal?
