What odd is that Discraft players were throwing the Kong... There have been 0 released to the public. How do they get away with this?

Quoting someone from another thread who was cool enough to do the legwork

He said that they were going to send a letter to the manufactures because they weren't following all of the guidelines, but also admitted that some of the guidelines are a little hard to meet. He said it is unrealistic for 500 to already be out in the stores before the disc is even PDGA approved. It sounded to me like the guy was saying that they were probably going to change some of the wording or how it works in the future, but also did not sound thrilled with the current situation with the Kong and Raptor. Disclaimer - I could have misinterpreted what he was saying and nothing I said was an exact quote from the PDGA, it was just what I got out of his message.

As to the Discraft/Kong issue... we'll see what happens....

In the 3d round LVC video, Nate Sexton said the Firefly was "grippy and durable". I'm still wondering if it's I-blend or something else new.

I am guessing there will be a wrist slap.

One of the Lat64/Dynamic players had a video throwing a pre release disc that he said he could not bag until April, but would be putting it in the bag upon the minimum # release. Odd that Discraft chose to ignore the rule.

I thought that the 500 rule only applied to worlds or the championship or something along those lines.
