Last time I was in a drunken stupor I broke my f'n shoulder. 2 months later it still hurts and my arm is only marginally functional so be grateful you only lost a tiny bit of dignity.

I hope DC makes it right somehow to the customer. One bad experience could effect years of purchases from an individual. Totally worth the cost to refund & replace.
Thank you for seeing this from my perspective dude. The PP cryZtal stalker was $30, not $25. Discraft has told me they will be sending me a new cryZtal stalker so all is right in my world!

Speed 10 is not a fairway driver, it's a distance driver

To be honest, i dont really get the "speed number" i often use my calipers to "set the speed"

Strange to me that a "10-speed" disc can have the same or even less Rim size than a 9-speed

I feel that the 9 vs 10-speed and 11 vs 12speed rim size is sometimes just off

Then you have discs like the undertaker that measure a lot faster than they fly

And still the PDGA spec has the Undertaker at 1,9cm rim. . . .it΄s not
I have 10 Undertakers in every plastic, non of them are 1,9cm
I really don΄t get how the PDGA specs can be of. . if Discraft did not change the disc AFTER it was approved
I would say it measure like a 8,5 but flies more like an 8-speed.

Just for fun i took a big stack of disc that all should have a 1,9cm rim and set my calipers to that. . .and well the calipers did not "fit" many of those 1,9cm disc...odd

The rim width is not the only thing that determines a discs speed. The shape plays a huge role in this. Usually wider rims tend to have a sharper wing which equates to more speed.
