Completely understandable, I guess........
So than what do you do if you have no idea?
How can you be penalized for not knowing the weight of your disc?
I assume there is no warning penalty, just your screwed here's your 2 strokes?
Im not trying to argue about any of this, it just seems kinda unfair. If it is originally the problem of Innova than all discs produced in that batch should become Illegal. That way it is fair for everyone.
If you dont mind bring your scales with you Saturday.........
Youve got me curious now!!!!
Yes please bring scales I'm interested in knowing how much mine weighs.
If it is illegal I'm taking it out of the bag before I get to use to it.
Sorry...they're digital...needs electricity. I had to get them for shipping items from home and getting correct postage.
Ahhh, you have industrial scales.......
Well than bring a Treadmill and some extra extension cord........
We can turn Micheal loose on the treadmill and that should generate enough juice to make them work........
You know kinda like a gerbil wheel :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
A disc is only over weight and illegal if you know exactly what the weight is... so if yo don't weigh them they aren't illegal. FOr example, say you go out and have a 180 destroyer and its is marked 175. You use it all day and win the tournament. Then some one questions the weight of the disc and conviently has some jewler scales. They weigh it and it comes up 180g. You can no longer use the disc, but you cant be penalized for using it all day.
Interestingly enough, I have actually seen this happen, some one had a disc that the manufacture weighed at 175, but it had the true weight of 177.3 and was marked along side the mfg's writing. That disc WAS illegal and the person could have been DQed if he used it.
There are a number of threads on the PDGA board covering this same topic.
THe only time i have ever heard of a weigh in before a tournament is the Japan Open where they have to use discs under 150.
Thank you thats all I needed to hear.
