tell you what -- watching people try discs on the driving range for 2 years GREATLY changed my perception of how disc theory should be presented to newer players, as well as the anatomy of a beginner/average/expert throw.

Not to hijack the MVP thread, but do you mind elaborating?

I hadn't seen that chart before. Like all the others, I don't agree with all. Take the Lat 64 Vision for instance. 8 6 0 4??? Really? Joe's has it at -2 HSS and 2.5 LSS. The rating used by DGC has it at 8 6 -3 2. I can get behind both those numbers because that is what I see almost every day. But 8 6 0 4 I have never ever seen. I can drop my wrist to make it a 8 6 01 maybe but a 0 4 would take a ridiculous drop. You have to take all the numbers with a grain of salt, but they are nice for a reference point.

ZAM, I like the in store numbers that DN has and use it most every time I am there for a reference. I also use their distance numbers. If you can get that on the website, that would be cool.

i agree with ZAM in that most people don't know wtf the numbers mean, they just see a chart with bunch of numbers and it's hard to compare two discs together when you have to go and look for them. the charts like MS's is much easier to comprehend, it's just to bad that it's so ganked up.

the other problem is they lump molds in all plastics together when in reality the plastic can make a huge difference in stability.

Ya any flight chart should be like a spreadsheet format like MSts.

I also like Innova's flight chart for their discs. its like al ine graph but shows the flights of the discs.

Ha! I totally forgot that those ratings are used on the box labels. Yeah a surprising amount of effort went into those and for an automated system, it'd be tough to be more informative. Plastic rate of wear, universal ratings... that's the stuff.

To stay relevant to the thread... can't wait till the day I get to make a killer MVP chart

Got a First Run Vector in the mail today. It is MUCH Domeyer then the new runs. i got a clear 176g. The First Run has a nice dark grey outer mold instead of black. Cantw ait to chuck it, i expect it to me noticeably more OS with the dome.

The pic doesnt do it justice to how much more domey it is.
