I have to say I love the Star, however, my Pro flies much farther. It is 167 grams vs. 169, so not much of a difference. I throw all backhands with the Pro up to about 425-ish 450'. The star is a good sidearm chuck to about 400 at best and gets better for backhand as it ages, we'll see what happens.
169g Orange Star Destroyer ( if color matters ) I too agree that they get better with age with backhand. I can get mine to go about 400 or more. Haven't really "accurately measured" but the skip distance is insane.
