It's in the technical standards.

Well aware of that.

But when the text on the store page explicitly states not PDGA legal I tend to believe that too.

Although I did wonder for a second whats different with this and the Tobu discs for example, but then I wasnt sure if they were PDGA legal either.

I guess I should have read the full page.

Interesting. Do we know why they switched the naming style?

If I had to guess, likely a continuation of the reason which pushed them away from "lion" and "crow"

I like the name change. Much easier to call a disc by a single word name than it is by a two word name. Although the putter is now on it's third name now, which is getting a bit excessive.

I am a fan of the change. Cool names lend themselves to cooler stamps. We were pretty hemmed in by the two word names.

So what’s with the influx of made in China discs? Trying to build the sport in China, or decided that discs molded in the USA weren’t already inconsistent enough?
