no it appears to be top and bottom pieces not lining up on the mold and not a flashing issue its pretty noticeable

Obviously you guys don't know the right answer and are way off track. Just ask his new wife Hanna. I'm sure she'll tell you exactly why he's playing better now.

Yes it’s all BS. Idk who comes up with this stuff but it’s funny to read sometimes. Discraft has great molds they didn’t “tweak” anything for me. They sent me discs to try I loved certain molds more than others and that’s how I built my bag. Tour series discs are a established mold in a desired players choice of plastic. Some plastics cool differently, ( Domey, Flat or neutral ) so they may request them to run a certain way but that isn’t always perfect. Also the Wasp has a strong flashing point I can tell you they don’t accidentally switch parts. Hopefully this clears up the air and gives a little insight.

Thx Paul... Its always nice to get insight from you guys. I wish more pros would participate here but I can understand why they don't.

I never said they accidently switch parts though. Was just wondering why that disc has that weird ledge/lip since I'd never really noticed it before.

Btw that post I quoted was from someone who works at disc company. fwiw

Keep up the good work of ending the archer debate.

Nice! I assumed they tweaked them since they're also stamped first run but you're right, all the molds where great to begin with!
Good to see you shoot with confidence, amazing lines and throws sir, keep it up!

Default Re: tweaking

Not sure, but I don't think they can just change a disc design by changing the physical mold without getting re-approval (or approval of the new disc mold that results) from the PDGA.

As to 'tweaking' molds, in one of her WITBs, Hannah Leatherman once said that she asked Innova to 'tweak' her Tour Series Star Terns to be more overstable than production Terns, so that they'd season in in a way more to her liking. I don't know exactly what they did, but they succeeded in making her Tour Series discs more OS than normal Star Terns.

It could indeed be the plastics, since a lot of TS Star discs are Swirly Star, and a lot of TS discs are Champion, as well... all which tend to be more stable and more suited for pro arms than the regular production counterparts.

That's actually be pretty awesome, really. I'd be interested in seeing if some of the online bravado of some of our friends here actually carried out into real life, or if they are just timid little mice hiding behind a keyboard lol

But mass gathering of forum goers would be pretty neat!
