No it's not.

Your hand can hold the disc, and at the same time the disc can be touching the basket.

A stance violation only occurs at the point of release.

Your hand is both a supporting...

Whenever rule questions come up on the FB group, I find I am often simply posting the relevant Q&A. The RC have done a good job collating all the useful clarifications.

But you don't have to break discs in. You can choose a disc that does what you want out of the box.
Knowing which disc that is, and in which plastic... that's the hard part. [emoji16]

Understable - the disc is temperamental and prone to erratic outbursts where it runs off to the...

That link gets the cause of turn and fade wrong. It repeats the old 'air moves faster over one side of the disc than the other' fallacy. The centre of lift being in-front or behind the centre of...

Not a violation either. Within 10m the player must demonstrate balance before advancing past the marker. That's all. Doesn't matter what the disc is doing.

Just coincidence - by the time a...

Yes, I'm going to walk that particular claim back. The idea that the lie moves with the marker challenged my assumptions. So I've gone back and re read the rules pertaining to marking and moving...

Every time I throw a disc I am being held up by the ground, directly assisting my throw by allowing me to push against it to generate rotation.
