Simple is good, but we opted for simple and relative.
Was some kind of machine (similar to a pitching machine maybe) used to test the fade and turn values at different speeds?
Just curious about how those values were derived.
Also, this would be more useful if the average player could figure out their "normal" thrown speed easily. Then you could select a disc based on how well its flight characteristics matched your thrown (arm) speed.
Love my Vibram putters.
