While I don't carry one regularly any more, when I used to carry a Discraft UltraStar (ultimate disc) I'd get someone asking about its legality at least a few times a year... So if that happens, should I now write down two scores on every hole that I throw it on? (Like any other disputed ruling, one with the penalty, and one without, and then have to go to the TD after the round for a ruling.)
I wouldn't think so. The player would have to provide a reason to question its illegality other than he "doesn't think it's on the approved disc list". Otherwise, what's to stop a player from questioning any
disc's legality and rendering it useless to its owner for the remainder of the round? "I don't think your Aviar is approved as PDGA legal...stop putting with it until we consult the TD." It's ridiculous.
If I were a player carrying a legal disc that players might question whether it is approved for play, like an Ultrastar, I'd have a copy of the approved discs list in my bag to whip out and show the doubters. It shouldn't be necessary, but if you're encountering a few uninformed folks a year on the matter, it might be worth the hassle.
