most standard plastic discs are made from an elastomer blend. for innova and discraft this is ~$0.60-$1.00 per pound. gateway's is more like $3.50 per pround.

most mid-grade plastic discs are made from a urethane blend. this is around $1.50-$3.00 per pound. gateway's is like $4.00 per pound.

most premium grade discs are made from... various blends. i know that discraft's Z has a large percentage of vinyl in it. innova's is a different base and i do not know what it is. the plastic is $4-$7 per pound.
