About a decade ago, the Board finally supported me and so we required variants to be submitted and tested. But some of the manufacturers pitched a fit, claiming that that was too government, that it was too onerous for them to have to submit so many discs for testing. The Board was pressured to reverse their decision and they did so. So now we are left with the current situation, where manufacturers can but are not required to submit disc variants for testing, and even when they do submit them, the PDGA does not require a fee for doing so.
You must like the Daredevil Discs way of one mold with a different plastic equals a unique name and approved certification! I guess Innova/Discraft would run out of names and it looks like it's not easy to maintain exactly the same plastic characteristics overtime.
