Default Large Diameter vs. Small Diameter

Are there requirements for these labels or do the disc manufacturers just use them in comparison to their other molds?

the terms are relative so I doubt there is any requirement for a label.

Good question, good thread. I personally think "Large Diameter" is anything in excess of 21.2 cm. For instance a CRO is 21.2cm and a ROC is 21.7 cm.

On another note, the Lat 64 River is 21.5 cm and probably why it has so much darn GLIDE.

Comparison... however I think you know if you're holding a "large diameter" the second you feel it.

Its all relative.
They really have to be around Wizard size (21.0cm) for me to envision them as "small diameter"

I'm also aware that many of my mental comparisons are far from reality. Discraft molds always seem like they're larger (e.g. Avenger, XS) but are actually the same diameter as a TB and Leopard respectively.

My understanding of what would qualify a disc as a large diameter is if the size of the disc allowed for a legal weight over 175g.
