The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I was wondering what the differences in the discs are.
Such as champion, pro, star, and dx.
I see that many discs that have the same name come in these different types, like the innova destroyer.
Thanks to anyone that can help out.

This is all from my limited experience and knowledge

Star - durable and grippy (tend to be more overstable)
Echo Star - made from "left over" material from other star discs (meant to be echo friendly but turns out its not much different and makes the discs highly inconsistent)
Champion - super durable less grip (although I've only had trouble when they're wet)
Champion - Glow - same as champ but glows, and is always clear/white/pearly
Pro - stronger than DX and retains the grip (beats in SUPER fast making the disc more understable)
R-Pro - "tacky" plastic that is somewhat more mailable
RW-Pro - echo friendly wood plastic composite, ranchero special
KC Pro - harder durable plastic, little to grip (great stuff, seems very stable)
JK Pro - "for dryer hands" tackier plastic that helps spin the put better and stick in chains
DX - standard plastic gets chewed up through impacts over time.
DX - Glow - glow version of DX but often seems harder and less grippy.
Echo DX - echo friendly DX plastic

thats as far as it goes for innova. Also there are coveted grippy/tacky champion discs that sometimes make an appearance and some would argue that there are massive difference in JK Pro runs.
