interesting question, stuff like this makes you wonder

also
i weigh all my discs, they are almost always off 1-2 g. sometimes 3-4 g.

last week, i got a CFR glow firebird that marked 167, I got it home and it weighed 176
too heavy for my wiener arm, so I took it back and exchanged it for a CFR glow sidwinder that was marked 167 and was actually 168

There is no minimum weight to a disc but the max is 200g. I do not believe that it matters on the mold. 175g is simply the most preferred weight. (think about it, 150 is too light, 200 is just too heavy! What would Goldy Locks do?)

He is not saying heavy weight discs are too much, he is asking why anyone would sell illegal discs. Man, you really need to read posts before you start insulting people.

I haven't weighed anything in my bag. The only time I pull out a scale is if I'm selling on the MP and someone asks. At a tourney I doubt there will be people with scales, a list of discs and their max possible weights, and the time to weigh every disc in every pro and Am's bag. This seems like overblowing nothing into something.

THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG

Each mold has a different max weight based on diameter. Many discs have a max weight of 175.

Not all discs are approved for 200g. Pdga has specific weights that each mold is allowed to max out at.

Knowingly throwing an illegal disc during competition would make that person a... well, we all know what they are.

'nuff said.

Marshall Street weighs every disc and sells them based on their scale weight, not marked weight, so you can review discs for sale on their website to get an idea of the range of actual weights based on their scale.

Here is the link to the list of PDGA approved discs, which includes the allowable maximums:
http://www.pdga.com/documents/pdga-approved-discs-pdf

Most of the popular golf discs have a max in the range of 175.1 (Wraith, Surge, etc) to 180.1g (Roc, Buzzz, etc).
