For me. It's not the plastic. It's the fact that they are small runs. So the quality is a bit better. Also I bought 6 CFR Destroyers and they ALL had the same flight patterns. Same seems to be true with the SE stuff. Just mention that you have a "Tulsa Orc" for sale and see how many people will be knocking down your door.
There is nothing too special about the plastic. Its just champion. Innova only provides those molds for fund raisers. That wraith you found might be a glow champ or it was made before innova produced them in champion plastic for the public to buy in stores. The big deal is that innova does not provide those molds in champion plastic, unless it is for a fund raiser/ charity event.
These are the molds that innova is currently offering for CFR events: They may not be the greatest molds, but you wont find them anywhere else.
I see. The disc I found has a 2006 Augusta worlds stamp that has worn off. The plastic does have a little different feel and shimmers a little more. Can anyone give me a rundown on all the different abbreviations and what type of plastic they are?
The companies who print custom stamps for tournaments make sure that your custom order comes on some of the nicest plastic available.
People who are serious about competing look for the nicest plastic to throw and the CFR discs always qualify.
Sounds like a Champion Wraith with the Worlds stamp on it.
CFR stands for "Candy Fund Raiser"
Nice plastic is considered "Candy" for Disc Golf Junkies like me!!!!
The extra funds collected go to the tournament stamped on the top of the disc.
Example: When you buy a "Best Shot" Disc, you become a sponsor of that tournament and your extra funding helps with payout and what not. You get extra special plastic and we get the funds needed to run a great event. Win/win.
Help support your sport, your platform, and your events by purchasing Great custom stamped plastic for your bag.
There are certain people who absolutely insist that they have the stock hotstamp on their disc.
They still do not know that the sweetest plastic is held back for custom stamping.
If you want the best, get something with a custom stamp on it...just a little secret for top dogs!
