Questions about disc specs

(1/2) > >>

ReTee:
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?

jack:
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....

Utz:
Barry Schultz 2 timin'

I dont think there are any other designations. Spot on, Jack.

jack:
Nate Doss 2x+1x champ?  Anyone know why that is?
