"Uncontestable" calls

I've been lucky enough never to get into this conflict, but I'm curious if someone could clarify.

Are there *any* calls that are "uncontestable" in Ultimate?

Nearest I can think about is something that carries with it no real penalty (i.e., travelling, or "give me space").

I've been reading some posts where people are like "Strip is uncontestable" and what not, which just sounds ridiculous. I'd like to be clear on this, if I could be.


I'd say a travel is contestable, and could make a difference if the pass is completed, but the stall count was above six. No contest, disc goes back at last number plus one. Contest, comes back at six. A strip is definitely contestable.

I'd say heckling is completely uncontestable, though. It'll just get you heckled more.

Wow this has come up about 6 times in the past 6 weeks.

You can contest any Call.

XVI.C) If a dispute arises concerning a foul, violation, or the outcome of a play (e.g., a catch

where no one had a good perspective), and the teams cannot come to a satisfactory


the disc is returned to the thrower and put into play with a check, with the count the same or


six if over five.

Remember any time you hear somebody say "you can't contest a..." you know they A) don't

know the rules at all B) are making up rules, and C) are trying to enforce the rules they

made up.

Ergo, when you hear somebody say "you can't contest a..." you know that person is full of

shit, and should not be heeded.
