Approved Discs and Targets
WFDF’s disc approval process is one that is ongoing, and additional manufacturers and models are currently under consideration for both championship and general level approval. WFDF relies on the certification work of two of its member associations for approval of disc models: USA Ultimate (USAU) for the discipline of Ultimate, and the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) for the disciplines of Disc Golf and Overall Events. Given the nature of the events, the approval process differs for each.
USA Ultimate employs a Disc Technical Standard that specifies the official size and weight of USA Ultimate and WFDF 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. USA Ultimate specifies three levels of approval. The process is outlined at:
