I talked to Michael Sizemore at Tech Disc and asked him a few questions. Here are his answers:
1. We are using the Force, Undertaker and Buzzz for our molds for the December build.
2. We do not offer custom molds at this time. We may look at doing that next year but it adds a lot of complexity on our end and the mold doesn't affect the data so we're just using a single mold per slot for now.
3. We use premium plastic (ESP, Start, etc.) so that the disc lasts as long as possible. It is designed to be thrown into a net and shouldn't beat-in noticeably. We only measure what you do to the disc, not how the disc flies. So if the disc does beat in and become more understable it won't affect the data at all.
4. Mid/Putter vs. drivers: Good question. This comes down to personal preference and what shots you want to work on most. The different rim widths primarily affect the speed and speed of the disc and what grips are comfortable for you. We usually recommend a fairway driver since most people can use the widest array of grips on it and it accommodates small and large hands. But ultimately it's up to you!
5. Accuracy is comparable to the Pocket Radar for speed. It should be +2 or - 1 MPH becuase we are measuring speed of the disc and the radar gun has several ways you can slightly mess up the reading to show a slower speed.
He also mentioned the mounting is crucial to accuracy of the data. They decided selling the unit separately wasn't worth compromising the data.
I think the way they are offering it is good with the limited discs as they can better control the data integrity overall vs letting people stick it themselves,
As well as limiting the discs they put it on, while annoying, is beneficial to the data integrity as it puts in more control. because less factors of error/calibration, etc.
