View Full Version : X-Out Plastic
Jan 13 2005, 12:35 PM
I have looked a few places, but cant find an answer to this question...
Can you throw X-Out plastic in sanctioned tournaments? Or are they meant to be practice discs at a cheaper price? :confused:

From the rules Q&A
Rule Question: Remaindered discs
Are remaindered discs (for example: Xed out discs, factory seconds, or hot stamping rejects) of PDGA-approved models legal for use in PDGA competitions?
Since these discs were produced from the molds for PDGA-approved models, they have already been indirectly approved by the PDGA Technical Standards Committee, and as such they are legal for PDGA play, as long as they meet the overall restrictions (weight, rim sharpness, flexibility, etc) as outlined by the PDGA Technical Standards document.
The committee understands that many of these discs may have slight molding imperfections but it is our opinion that they still perform essentially the same as other production discs and that they meet the standards under which their original models were tested.
Players always have the right (per 802.01 D) to question the legality of a disc used in competition. In such cases the Tournament Director will make the final call.
