Disc golf finally gets to the point where multiple companies can make a name for themselves and make decent products, which benefits the players. And as soon as this happens they start enforcing rules that make it a lot harder for new companies to break through and also hurt established companies. What could possibly go wrong with this idea?

The future of disc golf has apparently come down to R-Pro.

Think the PDGA has ever given a membership disc that was too stiff?

every new kc pro aviar i have, would now be deemed "illegal". someone at the PDGA needs to do something about this. because theres probably thousands of those things in circulation.

what i dont get is that gateway gets called out on this, so they comply.

yet innova keeps pumping out incredibly stiff champ plastic and incredibly stiff KC PRO aviars. the heads there have to know the flex test is now being enforced. so why dont they comply with the new enforcement of rules?

seems fishy.

and what about those new legacy rivals that everyone says are extremely stiff?

going to be even more fishy if legacy gets called out before innova ever does.

What happens to Ti plastic then?, from my experience with them they seem to be mighty stiff in comparison to stiff champ plastic...

my ti wasp is flexible. I could bend it fairly easy if I wanted to.

My purple Wizard is bendy too

Purple must be a softer color.

In legacys defense, I just got 2rivals, shipped straight from the factory, and they are no stiffer than any other new champ-equivalent I've felt.
