FWIW, the proto Volts I threw flew nothing like an Orc...It was slower and shorter with more predictable action....More of a long fairway, where an Orc is definitely a distance driver for me.

I remember someone saying the rim wasn't listed correctly on the PDGA specs, is it actually 2 cm? That is where my Orc comp comes from.

From the inside edge to the tip of the wing it measures 1.85...Who knows what the PDGA is doing...They also have the Sword's rim width listed as bigger than I measure it. Perhaps they are measuring it from the top of the disc?

Ryan C, what is your relationship to MVP? I'm just curious if we can rely on your information.
I'm not in any way affiliated with MVP. I was poking fun at someone....

I'm gonna go ahead and back discspeed up on this one. I seriously doubt the pdga uses a licensed metrologist for their disc measurements.

How hard can it be to measure a disc? They've been doing it for what? 30 years?
