I just measured one a few minutes ago, very imprecisely I might add, and it was a little over 22 cm. It looks to be a little bigger than a Roc, held side by side.

Ok, this is for somebody that knows more about this than me, which is just about anybody, I have a question. When I look at the PDGA approved discs list, the specs for the Warrior listed don't seem to be the same as the Warriors that I have. It looks like the diameter is listed as 21.0 cm, and the ones I have seen are all more like 22 cm. So, What's up with that?

Yeah, but what about the one in my bag?

PS- The PDGA police can come and get these Turbo Putts, please.

Maybe you could donate them to a park or something and get a tax write off??

I don't think I would want to do that to the park. Funny, I can remember thinking the Turbo Putt wasn't so bad.

The Warrior listed in the PDGA specs is the Blaze in H plastic. Look at the date. I don't know what the deal is with the approval for the new Warrior is, though.

All the ones I have say in pretty big print, "P.D.G.A. APPROVED GOLF DISC" right on the stamp. It's got me curious, if just a little.

Got to throw my new, 180g HPP Warrior alongside my other midrange discs yesterday. Definitely larger diameter than my Rocs, probably by 0.5-1cm, as alluded to a few posts up. It's a good bit shallower than the Rocs, almost like a large diameter Sniper/Gremlin. Mine was quite gummy, even in 40deg weather, so it'll probably be much gummier than the rest of my midrange discs in warm weather.

It flew almost identical to a seasoned 180g Star Rancho Roc, but with 0 turn and a nice, long fade at lower speeds that travelled much farther than it appeared in the air. Even into a 10-15mph headwind, it would not turn when released flat or with slight anhyzer, unlike my Rocs. Not a meathook (that's what my Gator/drone are for), but it might get a spot in the bag if it retains its HSS. Probably won't use it for tunnel shots though, since it's as wide as a house.
