i've calibrated my scale and found that i am about .2g low on weight compared to actual weight. (using multiple different stacks of 40 quarters as base weight. So i feel confident my weight on my scale is accurate (as long as I add .2g)

I have discs that are as much as -4g and +4g. I currently have an email out to my retailer. Luckily of the 4 that are +4, i have only thrown 1 of them. Hopefully I can get an exchange on the other 3 for legal to use in PDGA events discs.

As others have said, this is a frustrating situation, and I know I have learned my lesson and will only buy discs that are individually weighed. If that means paying a little more, so be it. I'd rather pay an extra $1 per disc than be in a position to get a 2 shot penalty, or DQ at a PDGA event.

To OP, at least your discs can't get you DQ'd for being over weight Always thinking positive

To complain. I don't even know why I read it.

And to echo what everyone else has said, Justin at comnunitydiscs is the best in terms of everything. The slight lack of selection is well worth the assurance you're getting exactly what you think you ordered. Now can we all get back to celebrating the return of the pro pig?
