Re: Question for Dave D
The 10 to 15 stroke improvement created by the stringway is exaggeration, but I understand your point. In my mind, the beveled edge did not change the way discs flew, it mainly changed the distance they flew. That is my admittably rough idea of the "character of the sport".
What I'm talking about here is different than the beveled edge. When I hear of 400 foot thumbers (by more than a handful of folks), I start to wonder about the imaginable ways objects can be designed to fly and I start to think that it's not just distance that would change, but how the disc flys. That is my concern with the character of the sport. I'll admit, however, that this is merely my indefensible preference.
