I tallied 32 responses throughout this thread. I had to interpret some of the answers and made a few assumptions. Example, when I received input like this:
Quote:
My dream... a Comet flight plate with a Polecat rim.
I had to make a few assumptions like this:
PDGA LEGAL:
GLIDE:
NEUTRALITY:
DIAMETER:
RIM DEPTH: 1.6 (the same as the Polecat)
SHOULDER:
THUMTRAC: No
RINGS OF HEDRICK: No
RAISED CENTER: No
DOME: slight
OVERMOLD: No
RIM "BEAD" RADIUS: Polecat
BEVELED EDGE: No
INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS:
PLUS RIM: No
WEIGHTS:


So here's the current breakdown:

PDGA LEGAL:
22 said yes
3 said either way
7 did not respond

GLIDE:
11 said max glide
8 said medium to high glide
6 said medium
7 did not respond

NEUTRALITY:
19 said neutral
6 said stable
7 did not respond

DIAMETER: I decided to go with a min/max approach for this field. If you gave only one measurement instead of a range then I listed that as both your min and your max.
Min:
12 said 22.0cm
4 said 21.0
2 said 22.5
2 said 21.6
2 said 21.5
1 said 21.8

Max:
8 said 22.0cm
6 said 22.5
4 said 21.0
3 said 23.0
2 said 21.6

9 did not respond

RIM DEPTH:
7 said shallow
3 said medium
1 said deep

min/max approach as described above
Min:
6 said 1.3cm
4 said 1.6
2 said 1.4
2 said 1.2

Max:
5 said 1.5
5 said 1.6
4 said 1.3

7 did not respond

SHOULDER:
14 said square
7 said rounded a little
11 did not respond

THUMTRAC:
12 said no Thumtrac or equivalent
8 said RDG style
4 said Thumtrac
2 said Sinus style
6 did not respond

RINGS OF HEDRICK:
18 said no
5 said yes
9 did not respond

RAISED CENTER:
22 said no
10 did not respond

DOME:
10 said flat
10 said slight
6 said mild
6 did not respond

OVERMOLD:
21 said no
11 did not respond

RIM "BEAD" RADIUS:
10 said Polecat style which is flatter but has a decent radius leading up to the flat
5 said rounded
1 said micro bead
1 said big bead
15 did not respond but I don't feel like I explained this category very well

BEVELED EDGE:
16 said no
7 said a very faint bevel was the most they'd want
9 did not respond

INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS:
7 said smaller radius
5 said larger radius
4 said sharp
1 said medium
15 did not respond

PLUS RIM:
21 said no
11 did not respond

WEIGHTS: I interpreted this data as "what it the lightest you would want?"
8 said 150g
4 said 130
3 said 180
2 said 160
1 said 165
1 said 175
13 did not respond

^ great tally! Thanks! It looks like there may be a couple things we still want to hammer out/vote on, such as depth. Looks like we've narrowed it down to between 1.3-1.6. Dome might need a pole since that's tied for top currently, and maybe bead radius?

Thanks for all the hard work on the Marmo...this is going to be an awesome disc, I'm sure!

Long time member long time lid thrower. My imput.

PDGA LEGAL: definately.

GLIDE: medium to high

NEUTRALITY: neutral! I like your definitions.

DIAMETER: 22cm ish. Loved whitlers, but they were borderline too big for golf. If we don't go putter size make sure its big enough to be superclass legal!

RIM DEPTH: not much of a lid unless its a little deep. Somewhere between a birdie/rattler and polecat is ideal for me

SHOULDER: more square. Zephyr/polecat/temoko please

THUMTRAC: no thumb track. I love my berg and bangers, but better to keep them off the lids. Probably best for molding/glide anyway.

RINGS OF HEDRICK: I like them, but they are not a selling point

RAISED CENTER: not necessary. Its the closest I woulf really want to a thumb track.

DOME: Mild to medium Dome

OVERMOLD: traditional is fine. Line shaping is probably best without. I threw ions a long time but they just always wanted to push straight, great for a driving putter but not a lid. Curious to see how the beetle flys with the overmold. I worry discs would need to be more stable than I want to help shape lines.
RIM "BEAD" RADIUS: rounded for longer wear

BEVELED EDGE: no bevel

INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS: nice and square. Mostly fan grip these discs so its not a deal breaker.

PLUS RIM: no thanks

WEIGHTS: 150-180g is the best. No need to go lighter

PDGA LEGAL: for sure

GLIDE: medium/high

NEUTRALITY: stable or neutral out of the box

DIAMETER: ≤22cm

RIM DEPTH: 1.3 - 1.5 cm

SHOULDER: very lightly rounded to square

THUMTRAC: no thanks

RINGS OF HEDRICK: no thanks

RAISED CENTER: HELLS no

DOME: flat

OVERMOLD: no need to over-complicate

RIM "BEAD" RADIUS: small radius

BEVELED EDGE: no bevel, or very slight

INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS: small radius

PLUS RIM: plus rim is a minus

WEIGHTS: I like heavy upshot discs

So almost all of these talking points seem to be settled but please let me know if I accidentally overlooked something:

PDGA LEGAL: yes
GLIDE: it looks like we are aiming for medium to max glide
NEUTRALITY: neutral, possibly starting out ever-so-slightly on the OS side of neutral
DIAMETER: based on the min/max values, it seems like 22cm is the way to go
RIM DEPTH: based on the min/max values and the bias towards shallow it seems like 1.35cm is a good compromise
SHOULDER: square but I will likely make it slightly more radiused than a Polecat
RINGS OF HEDRICK: no, not on this go-‘round
RAISED CENTER: no, not on this go-‘round
DOME: individual pulls from the same mold can vary from pancake flat to pop-top. I will aim for very slight dome and, by manipulating various process variables, expect enough variance to hopefully please everyone.
OVERMOLD: no, not on this go-‘round
RIM "BEAD" RADIUS: I will aim for Polecat-ish and maybe increase the radius slightly
BEVELED EDGE: no, not on this go-‘round
INTERNAL RIM TO FLIGHTPLATE TRANSITION RADIUS: it will get a small to medium radius
PLUS RIM: no, not on this go-‘round
WEIGHTS: its apparent that people want light weights available. I will try to see what materials we have to work with and make sure the volume of the disc will allow for some decently light weights. I’m hoping for a lower limit of at least 150g. I need info from the manufacturer in order to make this happen.



I will be happy to create some CAD models once we can reach a consensus on this one talking point:
THUMTRAC:
12 said no Thumtrac or equivalent
14 said they wanted something: (8 RDG style) (4 Thumtrac) (2 Sinus style)
This thread has already simulated a poll on the subject and it is an even split. How does DGCR want to resolve this talking point?

my suggestion:
As a compromise, what does DGCR think of the idea of incorporating some faint Juju-style divots (or similar) for those that want to use them but enough area in between the divots so that you can avoid them if you want the feel of a traditional flight plate?
Sample:



I'm really looking forward to moving forward with this awesome DGCR project

I mentioned before and thought the idea was stellar, may have gotten glossed over. How about texture pads ala latitudes sinus?

Juju divots is an interesting idea. Maybe 3 max?

a shallower 3 pad juju style would be unique but welp...

Your Sinus pads were included in the original tally. If DGCR wants this feature to be included then it is an easy addition; they could easily go between the Juju divots.

DGCR? What do y'all want? Cast your votes

I'm not sure I understand what you're getting at here... thumbs up or down?
