Default Medium Wizards No Longer PDGA Legal?

Just called Gateway to inquire about ordering some Mediums, but apparently they don't have any. When they make more, it won't have the PDGA tooling on back because it's too stiff to pass. Sad, sad day.

Yep, PDGA is starting to crack down on stiff discs now. I'm glad I still have a box full of G9i's - I figured I might as well get myself a healthy supply while they were available.

I'm more curious to see how this will affect other manufacturers. Lots of discs out there are pretty stiff and probably stiffer than the limit. Chuck mentioned that PDGA listens to people questioning legality of certain discs and picks up random samples from store shelves to test the claims... But who really calls discs in for being too stiff? The only reason PDGA cracked down on Wizards is because Dave sent them some G9i's as part of a promotional package and they instantly replied to him that they were too stiff and he had to pull them off all store shelves. At first they wanted to him to pull all Wizards with the small throwing Wizard stamp on them before he informed them that he has RFF Wizards with the same stamp. Anyway, I just don't get it.

I thought this day might come, Gateway makes some discs that are super stiff but since Legacy has been on the scene they make some super stiff plastic also. Maybe this is the reason the last batch of Kc Rocs I felt weren't very stiff.
