Very overstable compared to a normal XD.
My biggest Innova pet peeve is that a disc in one type of plastic flies differently than the same model of disc in a different plastic. For example, Pro, DX, Star, and Champion Destroyers all have way different flight characteristics. At least in that case the mold is the same. If the star XD is truly a different mold than the DX, then why not just give it another name? Even the XDII would be less confusing.
Is this the case with other manufacturers?
