Homburg is good buds with Kuzi btw.
I would say the difference ranges from two strokes to being DQ'd


Doubt it. No one s saying shit cuz it really doesn't matter. The market decides value and this rule has very little. I'd rather see a foot fault called.

I would too, but what happens when it does get called on you? With the current rules your disc would be deemed illegal until cleared by the TD who doesn't have the equipment to clear the disc.

I think you answered the question. You'll have a td who has other stuff to deal with, one agro dick, and one dude, who like the TD, just wants to go home and chill. Nothing will happen.

Yea, the TD will look at the disc and unless it's dramatically/obviously altered after the making (why would you?) then they will call it good.

Of course on the other hand, I could see TD's now bringing scales to majors and check the prodigy discs...Especially from there players, but you could easily take the good ones and replace them going to the car. As far as I'm concerned the PDGA should be putting out the money and time to enforce it. It's their standards. Company's should try to comply to it but...it happens.

It's not just prodigy discs, any overweight disc is now the players responsibility to not throw in competition. This includes all 175g wizards too.

If someone breaks a scale out to weigh mine. If it happens I will be getting my money back. There is no reason anyone should have to check before buying. It may cost some money but rest assured you can get that back by filing a law suit against the company and they would end up paying all court fees too.

Bring on Judge Judy bitches!

It always has been. I'd bet there are thousands of overweight Innova discs. Most of my Discraft discs have been right on. This isn't anything new.

Than what was the rookie mistake? Getting caught?

I just weighed all my gateway putters and out of 30 total 7 were over the legal weight limit.

Gateway has always been the closest out of any of the companies. They were just wizards but generally spot on. The rest were off a gram or two probably 50% of the time.

Yep. You don't see Innova having this issue and they have plenty of discs out of spec. Discraft doesn't have this issue cuz they know how to run their machines.
