I love it every time that they do things like that. Makes more and more people realize the value of consistency in plastic molding. Variations of even the slightest bit throw unseen deviations into the product.
Great example of this is my buddy has two Star Darts. Both the same weight (168). One of them is so stiff that it feels like it's Champion more then Star. The other one is so gummy that it's like leaving a Soft X Magnet in your car on a 100 degree day. Pretty much bends in his hand as he goes to throw.
On Innova's defense though, it's hard enough to control quality at one plant when you are massively producing a plastic product, let alone three big mold shops. Elevation, temperature, humidity, etc...will all effect the final outcome of a mold. Not to mention wear and tear of said mold will eventually start producing more and more blemished products. Also, it's getting harder and harder these days to procure quality plastic's from people for molding that are the same consistency every time you order. Pretty much a crap shoot.
Final point, throw Discraft
. They seem to have the art of consistent molds down pretty good
