Well... That must be something new then. Or a different way than the timestamp you get from youtube. Cause if you just copy the timestamp from the url, it doesn't work.

I guess I’m torn on it...yeah discs used in sanctioned competition should fall within approved guidelines, but nobody seems to be concerned with it. Why have guidelines if they’re not being used?
This is why there should be some acceptable variance allowed to overweight discs. I like the 3 gram allowance. This lets the manufacturer to stay within the set limit that is given by the PDGA while allowing plastic to do what it sometimes does in post-production: absorbing moisture thus making it heavier, etc.
