Official USA Ultimate certified 175gr. Ultimate discs
– Eurodisc 175g 4.0
EURODISC is proud to announce that the Eurodisc 175g 4.0 is now Championship level approved by USA Ultimate, thus making it the first European 175g ultimate disc and worldwide the first organic disc, to be considered a USA Ultimate Approved Championship Disc.
USA Ultimate employs a Disc Technical Standard that specifies the official size and weight of USA Ultimate Approved discs. Once a disc meets these requirements, USA Ultimate begins a multi-level player review of the flight characteristics of a candidate disc. This approach ensures that candidate discs not only meet the size and weight requirements, but also have acceptable flight characteristics, comfortable grip for players of all sizes and reasonable catchability.
The Flight Test Pool is composed of a geographically diverse mix of players, both male and female, who are skilled throwers. These players evaluate a candidate disc using an online survey composed of questions approved by the Disc Standards Working Group. The results from these surveys are used to determine the acceptability of a disc for various levels of play. Disc testing criteria:
- excellent flight characteristics
- good grip
- comfortable accessibility
- hardness of the disc
- technical characteristics (size and weight)
