Default Super Class Discs

Have you seen the lead story on the PDGA web site about Super Class Discs?

It appears the PDGA wants to encourage the use of regular old catch frisbees for disc golf. Retro disc golf I guess.

The logic the PDGA cites for this idea makes sense and I will probably give it a try; but I remember the old days of playing target golf with yard frisbees and I don't think I really want to go back.

There's a local course in my town that's probably perfect for playing with catch frisbees. OK - it would be a new challenge, but so what? Why give up the advances in disc technology the last 25 years just because the new discs make older courses easier? Is there really a problem that needs to be fixed when advanced players regularly shoot 4-5 under on a course?

Any opinions about this?
