Yes, on the same layout on the same day, regardless of division score X will receive rating Y regardless of the rating of the player who shot that score.

However, what that rating actually is...

That's kind of my point. There are multiple of those strong young players out there who are up and comers. Is any one of them going to be that much better than all the others. Maybe, but I'm thinking...

Hey man, he may win 10 for all I know, but I think once PMcB's heyday is over, there won't be anyone as dominant again, at least not for a long time.

I think PMcB might be the last guy to ever win 5x Worlds. The level of competition isn't going anywhere anytime soon. We are in a "Tiger Woods era," and those might just be once a generation.

We...

I skipped quite a few of the pages in between, but just going back to the OP, his stated reasons for competition existing aren't even agreed upon reasons in the first place. Competition can be...

Maybe, but it is difficult to argue that higher ratings are due to rating creep, and not to players simply getting better. I think in disc golf what we are seeing is certainly the latter.

I'm a tournament chess player, and I'm not sure I agree. Bobby Fisher topped out at 2775 rated. The highest rated player ever is Magnus Carlson, who at his peak was 2884.

That is an increase of...

My predators are on average MUCH more overstable than my Raptors. Vultures are all over the place in stability. I have bought a LOT of Vultures. I really love the mold. If you want to know how they...

I don't think you're ever going to get away with just cycling Buzzzes. That disc flies well on powered anhyzer shots, but it doesn't fly well at lower speeds. That slow late turn is very difficult to...

I'll tell you, I don't throw any prodigy, but I ended up buying one of Kevin Jones' Tour Series M3s because of his description. I don't know why, but since my awesome old Mako3 was lost, I've been...

I worked pretty hard to get a couple of them. Unfortunately I don't think they fly a lot different than the Roach. I was kind of hoping they would be a little more overstable. Last few rounds I was...

The Vulture is such an awesome disc and has the same diameter as Predators, which he also throws. Makes no sense to me.

I really think the answer here lies in better course design. There are too many courses where 500' throwers are going to have a birdie feasting frenzy...

Some discs are going to resist turning when thrown with any human arm speed. That doesn't mean that if the Hulk threw the disc it would still resist turning. So talking about stability as an absolute...

I have a the Tour Series Drone, Vulture, Force, and Buzzz.

I would say that for all of them the plastic feels very good. Quite grippy, and fairly stiff without being as hard as a board.
