Spray paint on disc?

Postby Cavere » Wed Jun 06, 2012 11:11 am

I came across a disc today that looks like someone covered it in plasti-dip. Im guessing it's lower speed driver pretty domey and the rim isn't as wide as my wraiths. It flies well and it has a great grippy feel to it.

I am wondering if it is actually legal to play with a disc that has been coated in another material that still falls within legal weights?

802.01 C. Players may not make post-production modification of discs which alter their original flight characteristics. This rule does not forbid inevitable wear and tear from usage during play or the moderate sanding of discs to smooth molding imperfections or scrape marks. Discs excessively sanded or painted with a material of detectable thickness are illegal.

Thank you varsi. I'll see if some light acetone will take it off. It'd be nice to learn what disc it is anyways.

Additionally, you can't put anything on the disc that adds measurable thickness, whether it affects flight or not. So an ink marker or something similar is fine, dye is fine, paint is a big no-no.

Upon further inspection there is a stamp of a pdga disc that has completely worn out but the impression is still in there. So anyone know if pdga gave out a driver between a fairway and distance that was black and pretty domey I'm guessing years back? The thing glides for a mile as well. I don't know if I'll ever find out what disc it is. But if I can I will certainly be adding another one of them to my bag.

maybe a storm? When I joined the PDGA that was the disc I got, a black storm.

The center stamp is exact but I haven't been able to make out a discraft stamp on top. I don't have a storm to compare but I'd guess no. With a little hyzer flip this disc soared 420' with a flight pattern close to my leopard. I'll have to find one to compare.

Ok I think it is a discwing quarter k. It has the rounded inside edge and has the grippy plastic. It must just be beat to understand because it isn't as overstable as the reviews make it sound to be.

No Quarter K I've thrown has been anywhere near to being overstable. Usually the owners bet me I can't keep them from turning and burning.

I did some reading and the quarter k is the overstable and the qk II is the under stable that they sent out for pdga. My 400' throw with it wasn't full power maybe that's why it didn't sky roll on me. The basket was only 340' and the thing just kept flying.

But I love that plastic it has. It is grippy and feels great in the hand.
