    New star plastic??

    I just got a new replacement star boss. The star plastic seems different than the star boss I got last year. To me it seems more supple/softer than the other star plastic I have. Anybody else notice this or am I tripping(i wish)??

    Color will effect grip for sure. That's why for my Focus's, I try to get them in the black Pro-D. They are grippy while still remaining stiff for push putts. But compared to my red Focus, they fly the exact same even though they are different colors.

    As for my little experiment I pulled off this weekend, I found no discernible flight difference between all my clone discs that are the different colors. The only difference I did realize was I have forgotten how to throw my Flick appropriately.

    Well, in my cheap plastic Rattler collection, I had all the same weights. The yellow and orange ones had a rubbery grippy feel, while the blue ones were very waxy and slippery feeling. I eventually put all the blue ones in the loaner box, as I wanted to have them all the same for my practice. When doing putting practice sessions, I noticed that when I made most of the oranges and yellows, I missed most of the blues, and vice versa. It had to be the grip. The blue ones slipped out and the others didn't. I preferred the grippy ones, so I shit-canned the blue ones.

    I have a black champ that coyote that feels alot like my yellow star coyote. I would say that the color has a lot to do with the feel of the plastic then we think. (that or it was misstamped)

    The Boss, Destroyer, and Orc, have now been run with the new stabilizing process.
    This only affects the lightest weights in the class.
    Boss's 165-169 grams, and same for the new Destroyers, only in Star plastic, are much more stable than thier heavier brothers.
    These are fantastic discs, being lighter, they go farther, but they will take all the arm you can put into them, and they dont flip.

    Some people looking to replace lighter first run Star Destroyers will think they got grandmas arm when they get one of these new discs.

    I have a 165 gram Star Destroyer I got from Lowell. He thought it was gonna be a good flyer for him being on the lighter side, but it was a brick for him, so he sold it to me. Its more stable than my 175 gram Eco Star Destroyer, my max weight Feldberg Boss, my max weight Xcal, and my 172 Star Teerex.


    They beat in sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

    And as far as I know, it is only the Boss that shows this effect. And yes, people that normally want to buy the lightest disc of an overstable mold are usually disappointed.

    Doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of having lighter discs?

    If I remember correctly, your disc is 167gm, which means it falls in to the "star lite" category, and is actually more over stable than the heavier Bosses. At least that's what Innova has said. I think the cut off is 169gm for these.
