Big Bead, Small Bead?
« on: January 26, 2007, 12:44:28 PM »
Can someone explain the difference between a big bead and a small bead mold?  Exactly what part of the disc are people referring to?  Thanks in advance.
Over the line, Smokey! I'm sorry. That's a foul.

I know my KC Pro Aviar has a small bead that runs along the bottom edge of the rim, whereas my soft aviar does not have that bead along the bottom. Also, if you pick up a rock, you will notice a similar bead running along the bottom. As far as the mold goes, the "grid", or stiff aviar is the driver or big bead mold and the aviar p & a is the other one, maybe? I think I am wrong actually...

You could describe it as the lip at the bottom of the rim/edge of the disc.  A big bead will have a noticeable semi-circular "bead" that produces a more overstable flight.  A beadless disc will not have this protrusion.
