Questions about disc specs
« on: February 11, 2013, 08:51:05 AM »
I understand the weight and plastic type specs on a disc and appreciate the differences they make.  I also understand speed/glide/turn/fade, but I've been seeing an additional designation among players that I haven't seen, or at least noticed before until the last few weeks and don't have a clue what it's about.  It's the "times" thing, usually seen on the message boards as "11x," or "9x" or so on.  What's that about?

Those are all Ken Climo type of discs.  It represents the X champion run he was.  In other words, it would be a 8x, it was when he was 8 times world champ.....it is only for his designation to date as no one else is within the grasp of his world titles.  I think only Juliana has a 5x stamp beyond Kenny's....

Well I think at that point in my life i was still making fun of my friends for carrying around their satchels & purses full of frisbees so i didnt see it happen but i think i've been told it was at Swope.
