He is not going to let the disc companies choose their own weights.

Ralph Nader has already came out and said that the Innova Groove is "unsafe at any speed".

To inject some sensability back into this Convo...

Do PDGA SuperClass events go by weight or diameter? I would assume diameter since you can throw say, a Zephyr or a Condor in a standard tourney...but if you were to get your hands on a 200 gram Destroyer could you play with it? I don't know why you would, it'd be about impossible to throw, but in theory..

a Destroyer has a max of 175.1, so you can not throw a 200 destroyer a tourney.
Superclass discs are listed on the chart. you can buy a light weight super class, it is about diameter.

Diameter sets the max weight-
(4) not exceed 8.3 g per cm of outside disc diameter;*
(5) not exceed a maximum weight of 200 g;*

Oh man. Here I was thinking I was playing this innocent little game and then this thread comes along and exposes all the filth and seedy corruption that lies beneath the surface, like a deadly mold hidden inside a child's playroom. I just don't know if I want to live in a world where people throw slightly heavier than they should be discs at metal baskets in a park. When it came out that competitive cycling was plagued with doping it was 3 months before I could even look at a bicycle without throwing up. Now when the Chinese food delivery guy rides up to my building I just shout "How do you live with yourself!?!" Hell, when I found out Mark McGwire was juicing it spurned a hatred for gingers that burns to this day.

To help further elaborate, if things people you've NEVER met, type on the internet SERIOUSLY offend you, then the problem lies 99.9% in your court. Hell, things people I know personally couldn't get me riled up, unless it read something along the lines of "Your house has burnt down, and as your family ran outside, they were exposed to Sarin gas, and instead of treatment being administered, we shot them" and even then, I'd say "Pics or it didn't happen"



A few grams never hurt anyone....well except maybe Tony Montana or George Jung...

Wow! Read it all!

Max weight is max weight. Once the disc is weighed and marked it is final. Do yourself a favor and don't worry about it so much. If it is over by 2-5 grams, there is such a minimal difference, it is silly to consider it significant. The PDGA puts rules/regulations in place to minimize potential harm to pedestrians/other players on these sort of issues...I think. A few grams over is not going to spell certain doom.
