The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

so i've been playing for some time and now am starting to look into getting discs from different makers, mainly have been using innova, but i have the problem that i dont know what plastics are similar to each other (i.e. innova's champion, star, dx; discraft's pro-d, elite-x, elite-z, esp; ching power and supreme lines; latitude 64's grip, opto, gold, core, zero; etc) can anyone tell me which ones are like/similar to each other?

tl;dr which plastics from different companies are similar?

Premium plastic: Champ, Z, and Opto
Premium with grip, but not as durable. However, tend to be more overstable at first: ESP, Star, and Gold Line.
I haven't thrown the Pro-D, X, DX in quite some years. So I can't give you any current info on them.
I have a mish mash of ESP, Star, Gold Line, Champ, and Z plastics. For the most part. My high speed stuff (drivers) are in ESP, Star, and Gold. Due to the better grip and a little extra distance those plastic offer. The rest (mids) are in the Z and Champ for durabillity.
Stay away from CE plastic, because once you try it. All other plastic sucks! lol!! Oh, and it costs big $$
Nailed it!!!
The Grip has to feel just right. Some folks have large fingers , while others have smaller fingers , so the grip will vary from player to player.

Experiment and see whats right for you.
