Innova's Illegal Disc

Postby Tiki » Tue Jun 19, 2007 2:30 pm

Just passing on an interesting bit of info that we got from Am Nationals this past weekend. It turns out that Innova never submitted the 'SL' to the PDGA for testing, therefore it is an illegal disc and is not approved for competitive play and cannot even be carried during a tournament round. Proof is below.

That list looks made up.

There's the official list.


It's not on that "Official List" either.

If the Starfire is on the list than it doesnt matter....


And it is as I suspected. Because the SL is an offshoot of the Starfire, which was approved, it doesnt need to be retested to PDGA specs. Or something similar to that, I think.

I never said it wasn't.

I just said the list on the pdga site looks made up. And by made up I mean out of date.

Im just relaying the info that we got at Nationals. The SL, the new Discraft prototype and one of the newer Quest discs (which was approved but didn't have 1500 in production) were not allowed to be used at all.

Dave Dunipace on PDGA Message Board wrote:The Starfire L, Firebird L, and TeeBird L were all approved and in production before we shortened the names to the abbreviations SL, FL, and TL. At this point Homburg decided this was a name change and the discs, which were already certified, had to be recertified. We market the Starfire L, the Firebird L, and TeeBird L as the original models with a shortened designation, not a name change like Sniper to Gremlin, which was a name change. Regardless, we have already recertified the FL, TL, and Gremlin. We will recertify the SL soon. In the meantime, if you play with a disc called Starfire L, it should be legal, as it was before the name abbreviation. If you play with a disc called SL, it may not be.

Looks like the PDGA decided they need to make a little more money off the same old stuff just because they can. :?
