Has anyone seen any analysis at all of RPMs? Plenty of disc speed data out there, but has anyone filmed the throw from above with a high speed camera, with a mark on the disc's edge, and figured out how much spin we are putting on these discs?

Would need this figure to set this robot up correctly.

Who cares how the robot throws the disc? Are you a robot? Just throw the damn disc yourself!

But a robot programmed to mimic the average pros throw? That would standardize the flight numbers across all manufacturers and add legitimacy to our sport. You don't see the benefit in that?

Play along with the hypotheticals man....c'mon. lol.. We're talking videos the manufacture would make of the robot throwing dozens of times, multiple discs, etc, etc. That would be super useful to watch.

Still don't think you want the robot to mimic multiple styles, for a legitimate rating across the board, it would have to be thrown generically level/flat each time imop.

Yes, but that flat release with the same speed and rotation for every throw, would provide a bench mark. A committee of current pros could help set that first benchmark, and from there on, HSS and LSS would be standardized.

Let's say you have a nose up problem and you threw significantly slower than the average pro. You still would benefit from knowing the flight numbers when making a purchase, because, for example, all discs that are HSS-1, 2LSS based on the standardized rating, fly like HSS0, LSS3 for you.

This would help the average pro. Define average pro.

This wouldn’t add any legitimacy. It also wouldn’t standardize anything. First you would have to standardize and calibrate these robot throwers. What happens when the discraft robot falls out of calibration with the innova robot? Who is going to police that? Or is there one single disc golf robot that every manufacturer has to wait in line for?

A video of a "throwing robot" throwing a Destroyer. Force, Raider and all the "top distance drivers" at the same speed/Rpm/angle would rack up a ton of views

But IF such a robot would become standard for setting the discs flight numbers. . .. would we not risk that the manufacturers would start making discs that would preform well in the robot throws….and may not be as good for a real person to throw?

It would become a "hunt" for every manufacturer to have the disc that the robot gets the most distance with

It would be as useful to watch as it is watching Paul Macbeth throw discs on video.

People loves to see Paul throw . .

But we will never see Paul pick up a stack of drivers from different manufacturers and throw them
