"4g really isn't very much to be off by nowadays. "


Try telling that to your local street corner pharmacist! :D

Smyith,

thanks for the link - interesting stuff.


"most high end plastic absorbs moisture (thus more weight)."

Hmm. . .

Even if Innova or Discraft weighed every disc with a digital scale it could still be

off by 2 grams or more just due to water absorption. Each plastic has a

different blend, but materials like Nylon can absord as much as 8% by weight

in water. 2 grams out of 170 is only 1.2% so it would not be uncommon for

these weight to be off by this amount.
