They easily pass the flex test. Why wouldn't they be approved?

Flexy is OK. Firm is not. I don't know how you can call something that can't retain a flat disc shape on its own is considered a disc, but that's not the issue in the thread.

And I should've added one of these to my confirmation "This" post -->

In a world, where stiff plastic is outlawed, one man rises to the top. Stephen "Gummy" Mattingly.

I'd love for everything to start being produced gummier. Everything in bag would pass that test no sweat. And it would be fun to watch everyone get angry if PDGA started cracking down.

In the OP photo, are you sure that the distance between the inner rims is half the diameter of the disc? There needs to be a ruler on the scale, or taped to the upper inner rim, that measures inner rim to inner rim.

Did your disc retain it's correct, un-taco-ed state after your test? If not, then I believe this is 100% an issue with manufacturing, and anything stamped "approved" by the manufacturer is legal for use.

If you can't test my "approved" disc without damaging it, then that is an impossible test to perform. Even if the disc is legal, by testing you will ruin the disc. That's not an acceptable test.

I have alot of respect for most of you guys, some on here are very knowledgable but if you are trying to get discs illegal in spite of the g9i wizards being deemed illegal, you sir are a douche. No one likes a rat/snitch/nark, its one of the first things your parents probally taught you.... Stop tattletelling all the time. And then to go after fbs, a really popular disc, what a tragedy.
