Was Echo Star plastic ever labeled as normal star plastic? Are there any Echo Star first run discs? and how does adding recycled plastic change the formula?
I swear that my echo star destroyer goes farther than my champion destroyer of the same weight(max).
First, all the original Echo discs had the regular Star disc stamps, it was only recently that they decided to use a new stamp for Echo discs.
All of the first runs in Echo were mint green, other colors were added later.
If yours is an Echo Destroyer it will be marked in ink ESDS
If it is a regular run it will be marked SDS
The first run Echo Star Destroyers all came out of the mold with alot of dome compared to the regular Star D's, and all were overstable compared to the regular runs.
These were preferred by the pros because they were harder to flip. If you have one that is getting seasoned it should be a really good long range bomber.
The plastic used was 100% pre consumer recycled pellets, not a blend of recycled and new.
Discs made with the Echo plastic now run the range in terms of differences, some are more stable than regular Star, some less, some seem to be exactly the same.
