The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
What up with innova? Over the years I have noticed that Innova discs have gone downhill with consistency. My theory is they over use the molds or dont have a mold repair shop. Either way I still chuck em but they are never quite the same.
The only thing that I really noticed was when they came out with the Star Katana and it was flat topped and way more overstable than the Lemon Lake discs that were previously out. I now throw a variety of plastic from different companies (DGA, Skyquest, Westside, Lat64, Discraft) but Innova discs still make up more than half of my bag.
My Star Beast has been really over stable, it's starting to a beat in but it's taking a while.
Contact Dave D. at Innova for more specific answers.
my star beast flies much like a pro or a DX in the same mold.. the champ, however, is a whole different beast(pun intended)
I've found the exact same difference with the destroyer mold.. the champ version is just a different disc.
I use a DX Rhyno for my main putter and I've heard that the star plastic Rhyno is way domey by comparison to DX and champ.
Buy CE plastic, problem solved ;) Oh, and bank acount empty too lol. I think you nailed it with the molds. I also think they seem to be going quantity over quality. I'm sorry to see this happen.
I've had the same issue with star wraiths. I don't throw them anymore.
love champion sidewinders,like the pro wraith,and yes dx destroyer over same disc in diff plastic,that thing can take a cranking,so what if you have to buy a new one 6-8 months later,great distance at a cheap price
Yep I was almost done with Innova because of this but there new blizzard champion boss brought innova back in my bag. It is a shame that the Star Wraith, Star Sidewinder, and Star Katana turned into something they never started off as. I have not seen any issues with Champ plastic yet, but then again im not a huge fan of champ plastic anyway.
