Something's different in Innova's production - again...

This year, there's a seam, between the inside of the rip, and the wing, causing a line of "separation". When feeling the underside of the wing, it's a really rough on the hand. Do any of you think this is a problem w/ you? Cause bigger calouses than Gary has on his hands? (can't speculate how he got them! :lol: )

All kidding aside -just wanted to know:

1) if this bothers people
2) will you do anything to correct it?
a) throw Discraft :lol:
b) file/sand it down, maybe? :idea:

I think light sanding of flashing is permitted by the rules.

Seriously - next time you're in the shop, feel the bottom of all the discs. It wasn't there last year, and this year - BAM, VERY pronounced.

Ir ban: :P

Joe: Always! :lol:

I have a Star Wraith I picked up last summer that has that. It's kind of annoying, but I don't throw that disc all that much.

my new groove has this seem as well! It is not very annoying, but it is noticeable. Has not been a distraction yet. Flight is good.

The parting line on the mold can open under pressure causing the flashing (overflow). The more plastic forced in for upper weights can really add to this, or if you open the mold to allow more room. @ Quest we used a two piece mold and were able to avoid the flashing on the underwing. If you leave the flashing the disc will retain it's stability longer, by removing it you reduce the (air brake) and you will lose resistance making for less stable flight. I put the disc on carpet and lightly turn it while applying pressure to lightly buff the flashing off. I've cut my finger on sharp flashing before and it caused some discomfort while playing,very annoying. Hyzerman is right you can lightly sand or buff discs.

Ghost, if you're talking about the flashing, this has been happening at least since I started buying discs. One disc might have it, and the next doesn't, aligning with what KVN says. It is more noticable and lasts longer on champion plastic. I have used a greenie to buff it down a little too.
