they were talking about the destroyer Ricky hit the guy with at the silver cup series earlier in the year being the over weight one. Ricky even says that he throwing a halo now. It could also be over weight I have weight a lot of discs over the years that weigh more then marked.
Paul cares and he and Brodie were talking about in one of their pod casts that they thought for pro tour event you should have to get your discs weighed and stamped before they could be used in a round.

I am always just amazed at how bad the pros are about watching each other throw so they can give accurate spots.

Yeah I remember way way back in the day on the old pdga forum Dave D saying that plastic can absorb moisture over time and it’s not uncommon for discs to pick up a gram or two in weight.

I can see scaling discs for approval at something like the Japan Open, where there were weight guidelines in place for safety. Personally I get the idea, but with wider rimmed drivers with a sharper edge a sub 160 destroyer is still gonna hurt if you get hit by one.

I guess I’m torn on it...yeah discs used in sanctioned competition should fall within approved guidelines, but nobody seems to be concerned with it. Why have guidelines if they’re not being used?
