are 150 class/ultralights tourney legal?

Postby eg37167 » Sat Aug 11, 2007 11:07 am

I have enjoyed throwing ultralights and 150 class discs recreationally, but I wonder if this is a bad habit. Are they legal to use in a tournament?

It is one thing when I am just out for fun, but if I get use to throwing them that may hurt me if I play a tournament and have to switch back...

You're good to go, especially if you ever plan on playing in the Japan Open. They only allow 150g-class discs.

Is there a reason they only allow the 150g's in japan? I'm sure they can throw just as far as any other nationality, they have some wicked pitchers over there that can really toss a ball.

I think it's a safety concern.

There is a maxium legal weight for any given disc based on its diameter (smaller diameter discs have a lower max weight) and I believe a 200g maximum weight regardless of diameter. There is no minimum.
