No, there are various sites that do this, and theres no way of doing it for every run, plastic, weight, etc..

If you want to know how a SPECIFIC disc will fly, ask on the forums.

This has come up plenty of times before, in fact, it popped up a few weeks ago:

Additionally, I was told that the PDGA is afraid of manufacturer backlash if one brand of disc is rating longer than another brand.

It's a bitter pill to swallow because a single system is better for the players, period. But being able to run an organization that benefits the sport (all other criticisms aside) takes money. So if you alienate those that provide the money, it's tough to benefit the sport.

That tangent aside, I think inbounds is the most concise and complete system out there

Yes they should of course. On a side note I just heard the pdga is also looking into mandating disc locks to prevent nose up throws should the discs fall into adolescent hands.

I think he was meaning should there be a standardized flight rating design instead of Discraft using a single number, versus Innova and the others using a 4 number system, etc for the initial release from the manufacturer in order to try to bring some continuity to things.

After that for companies like InBounds or GGGT or Marshall St, whoever else to do their own in depth testing and reviews on the discs and what they feel are more true flight numbers is just icing on the cake.

you know, I don't trust their flight charts (I used to until very recently). How do they have flight ratings up months in advance for discs that having come out yet (not even their limited first runs)? Look at Westside's upcoming molds, inbounds had flights up for them a month ago. It almost seems like they went the route of www.flightanalyzer.com and just applied a % amount to the suggested flight ratings by the manufacturer. I don't honestly think they throw and test every disc themselves.
But that being said it is a nice site to compare the different flights through another persons eyes.
