Default Fight Chart 2.0

I took the suggestions from last time and upgraded. I hope the link works.

File is macro-enabled Excel. In order to use the List tab fully, you’ll need the macro. Should be able to select or exclude certain manufacturers and categories (consistently rated discs and beads). What’s on List and Chart should be the same.

As always, please weigh in with any and all opinions on where discs should be on the chart. Any error corrections (dimensions, beads) appreciated.

Please read the Key tab if you have questions.

The chart is even better than before.

Question: Is there a reason you chose to put blank spaces between some molds, such as the space between the MVP Limit and the Discmania PD2?

Yes. I tried to horizontally line up manufacturers. So all Lat64 is about in line with each other and all Trilogy are close.

Oh. Now that you say it, it is obvious to me.


Others can chime in to say if they agree, but I think the very overstable discs- Viper, Moab and Whippet - could slide down to range 4 since their overstability shortens their flight significantly. This is particularly so for these discs in the non-baseline plastic Champion and Star. What do people think? Do they range like a typical midrange? A little shorter even?

The XXX might also slide down to 4.5. It is probably a bit shorter than a Firebird, although they are similar (Firebird people will probably pile on me for even comparing them). Judgement call either way.

I like where you have the Stego; nothing flies shorter than that as far as I know.


There are bold lines separating each range, which I like. Could you color the columns according to the stability groupings? When I magnify the chart large enough to see, then move around, I lose track of what stabilities I am looking at.

The Kastaplast Stal hasn't been added to the chart yet.
Has anyone thrown any Stals yet? I got some in, but also got 6 more inches of snow, so they have not had any air time yet.

The Reptilian Gila does not seem to be on the chart yet.
What do people think; place it with the Lat64 Mace or with the Innova Rocx3?

It’s the same range probably but a bit more OS.

Thanks for all the placement suggestions. I’d love to have others weigh in.

The only issue with color-coding columns is that I don’t want to make the chart too “busy.” But maybe I could lock the top rows so they’re always visible.
