Should be more or less obvious: They haven't tested it yet.

I must have misread some post, I though I saw some test results somewhere... probably not by the "proper officials" :) Wondered if there was some inconsistencies in the mold or something that they did not include it to the chart or something. Well, no matter, going to by few today. :)

Not sure if this is "flight ratings chart" related or "instructional article" related, but I think it would be awesome to see a list of Blake's recommended distance drivers, organized by a player's average golf D on a distance drive, with distance ranges of less than 50'. Plastic and weight would be relevant variables as well.

The flight chart is an amazing resource, and once you throw a lot of different discs for comparison it allows people to find what they're looking for, but I think what a lot of newer players (or even more experienced players who are increasing their distance) want to know is the answer to something like the following:

"I throw around 280-300, what are the several best distance drivers to use for that range on a straight open shot?"

As an example, I used to throw around 320-340' average, which at first glance put me somewhat in the power 5 category on the flight chart. But for the most part, those discs were too overstable, except for the lower end of the spectrum in somewhat lower weights. The middle/higher end of the power 5 category was totally out of the question.

In summary, the disc flight ratings chart is an amazing resource to determine relative behavior of different discs, and I would be lost without it. But as an answer to questions of the type I listed above in bold, for someone who doesn't want to spend a lot of time figuring the chart out, it's not optimal.
