Default 1989-2019 photo archive of PDGA-approved discs

Anyone interested in seeing photos of all of the ~1,100 discs that I've tested and approved for the PDGA since 1989?

If so, click here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...TVKcVhGTlRuakE

Very cool!

It’s crazy to see how many discs have been approved per year in the past 10 years vs the 80s-90s.

Is the rim config important for it to make the approved list? Just wondering because of all the inconsistency in some molds like the Destroyer. I guess it just has to be in the approved range and manufacturer doesn't need to make it approved again? Same with flexibility?

Dude! This is a treasure! Thank you so much. PDGA or DGCR, how can we get this to a more public/permanent installation ?

That's quite a collection. Kudos to you for documenting all of this and putting it together in an easy to use Drive file.

Very interesting. How about properties of differing plastics? Like if something is sent for approval in plastic N and later they mold it up in Fluster which happens (that time) to make it super stiff, to the point where it is not flexible enough to be approved.

Like with the G9i Wizards. The Wizard was an approved mold, and then they ran it in a plastic that made it super stiff, somebody blew the whistle and you guys re-test it? Is that how it goes?

Why are those 1999 discs (Eagle, Teebird, Leo, JLS) all so flat-top? Were all of them flat-top back then? I rather would have thought that flat-top discs are a rather newish style and they had usually more dome back then ...

My guess is DX plastic. It's always been a flatter disc compared to the more modern plastics.
