There have been a lot of discs coming out as of late, I imagine there is some serious work to be done.

Who are all the folks that assist with updating that document? I mean those that throw the discs to help make the determination.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

I'm pretty sure you should move the DD Hysteria down a few pegs on the list. It's basically a more overstable Wraith, and doesn't really belong between the PD2 and Boss, IMHO. The fact that the DD2 is listed so low also confuses me, but fair enough.

Who is working on the Android app? I think it would be really cool if they could add a feature to show/hide certain Manufacturers and Power Levels. Like I'm looking for good beginner discs, only Power Level 1's would be good for this person, let me just look at those discs... Or I don't have the snap to make the best of Power 6 discs, don't show them right now. I don't think this would be very hard to do (I'm not just a random guy saying that, I am a software developer) but I don't know if its something that is planned or not. Would be awesome!

So I went to GGGT today and a friend told me to look at the Latitude 64 discs and some of them seemed pretty nice, but since I didn't know much about them, I wanted to do my research first prior to buying.
I understand that the flight chart is subjective, but the Latitude Fuse Gold says,

GGGT Website: "Speed: 5 Glide: 6 Turn: -2 Fade: 1"
Joe's Flight Chart: "Speed: 1 RNG: 3 Turn: -1.5 Fade: -1.5"

Why such the difference in numbers?
My Bag: DX - Aviar Putter - 170g & 175g | DX - Shark - 168g | DX - Roc - 168g & 175g | Pro-D Buzz - 170g | Champion - Leopard - 171g | Star - Teebird(TL) - 171g | DX/Star - Sidewinder - 168g/171g | DX - Beast - 170g

The numbers seem to be about right, Joe's Flight Chart says range 3 (which is quite right for a mid range, the Buzzz and MD2 are the same), HSS -1.5, which is very close to the -2 of GGGT, LSS 1.5, which isn't far off from the 1 GGGT gave it, and power requirement is 1, meaning it's suitable for beginners. JUFC doesn't really concern itself with speed and glide as such, and the difference in stability (-1.5/-2 and 1.5/1) can easily be due to just different disc samples, because discs are never that consistent. There are Strikers that are just as overstable as a Firebird, and then there are Strikers that fly more like a Valkyrie for example.

Thanks, I can see that the turn/fade isn't that big of deal, was wondering more on the speed.

Yeah, like I said JUFC doesn't really concern itself with speed. =)
