Is there a rule of thumb for elevation impact on distance? For example, if I am throwing 390' up a 10' incline, what should that work out to on flat ground? Or is there no way to figure that?

Rule of thumb for inclines is 3:1.
Throw 10' uphill, it feels like you're throwing 30' farther. Same thing for downhill. Throw 10' downhill, it feels like your throwing 30' shorter.

I do not throw a River Pro, but the Lat 64 Gold Line River is a hyzer flip dream.

I just purchased a Lat 64 Zero Soft Burst Mercy. I just noticed that it does not sport a PDGA Approved stamp anywhere on it. This is my first Lat 64 disc but I searched images and all of the others are stamped. What gives?
Thanks.

I don't think I've ever seen a disc that has a stamp saying it's approved by the PDGA. Mercys are approved though so you are fine to throw it in sanctioned play.

I think Hurler might be using the term "stamp" in reference to the embossed lettering inside the disc, rather than the printed hot stamp.

As LWS mentioned, all that really matters is that the mold is listed in the PDGA list of approved discs.

Mercy was approved May 20, 2012.

Actually both under side and hot stamp. Had not seen that before. Thanks!

As luck would have it, I was out today with someone who handed me a very weird disc. It had weird ridges on the outer part of the flight plate, and the wing looked like a mid, but had the sharpness of a driver. As soon as I gripped it I thought there was no way this is PDGA legal, but it had a stamp on it saying it was approved.

I forget what disc it was, but my initial assumption was that it was stamped as PDGA approved because it was such a weird disc.

Just about every stock-stamped Innova disc I have says 'PDGA Approved' right on the hot stamp. Discraft, too. Some older PFN ones I have don't have it.

Woah, so I just looked though my Innova discs and a bunch do say they are PDGA approved. I guess I've never read the fine print before.

I also have a lot of Innova discs that have the standard stamp but don't say PDGA approved. I wonder if it's a Innova East vs Innova West thing.

I was thinking this was more of a specific stamp that said PDGA approved. Not part of the logo.
