The disc was apparently approved 01/01/13 (as per http://www.pdga.com/documents/pdga-approved-discs-pdf).

But, you're concerned because yours is a prototype, instead of a production model?

Yeah, it doesn't have "PDGA approved" or anything like it on it

Where does one inquire about the Disc Golf Course Review Bag Tags? Saw a few pictures of them on people's bags. Curious, curious.

Should be as long it isn't overweight or too stiff. Google "pdga approved discs" to find the legal weight limit of that one. Drivers are usually around 175g I think.

Yep, that's correct.

I have managed to scrape up my discs on trees/concrete/rocks what not.
How much scraping can a disc take till it's flight is affected?

Premium plastic can last a pretty long time before showing any major flight changes. Base line plastic like DX will start to show flight changes much quicker. If you were to throw a DX driver for max distance and hit a tree 10ft in front of you I imagine that disc is going to need a little love and care to get back to its old self.

I assume by love you mean sanding?

I threw a DX driver as far as I could and at the end it of the drive it hit a walking path and got scraped on the edge

I suppose its better not get attached to something that will eventually get scraped all to hell and/or lost.

Sanding and possibly some reshaping because of tacoing. If you are throwing a lot of DX drivers, in the woods especially, it is def. a good idea to keep some sandpaper in your bag so you aren't trying to throw saw blades.

Mid-ranges will normally last a good bit longer than drivers.
