The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Hello, I’m looking for some info from veteran players who have experienced the durability of different plastic types. I mainly have thrown innova discs so have become more accustomed to innova plastic, but would like to hear about all the different plastics. My experience with innova plastic has been that champion plastic hardly beats in at all (I have only been playing about a year though), star plastic beats in within about a month or two of frequent playing and holds its flight pattern, dx plastic beats in quickly and pro plastic seems to come closest to flight ratings right out of the box and holds them with little variation (again I have only been playing about a year). I am also wondering how long pro plastic will hold its flight characteristics since I have come to really like this plastic and am hoping I can throw a pro plastic disc for a year or more (assuming I am not hitting trees all week during play, lol) Any info will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
My Star Wraith is the same way, the damn thing is a meathook. It does fly pretty good into a headwind though.As for your question about pro plastic, I've found that mine held their flight ratings for about 4-6 months, part of that might be due to the fact I'm getting a lot more snap than I used to.
The Lat64 Riot in Opto plastic will have less of a meathook effect and may give you the flight you are looking for. Since it's Opto plastic, it will stay with its flight rating for a long time.
