I would not say its that similar to the Z plastic you refer to but I do agree with the comments that it feels much like the E plastic from gateway.

Are you talking about the opaque Z plastic? Ive found that it has very little more grip than regular Z plastic.
The Star Plastic has grip very similar to Pro, or most simiar to KC Pro.
I dont really have any issues with grip with any kind of plastic, champ/z can get tricky if they get dusty, but thats easy to fix. I would be more excited if the Starline plastic had more glide than Champ, yet similar durability.

Warning: If your hands get oily then the star plastic will become slick as hell. If your hands just sweat a lot though, this stuff is money in terms of grip and firmness (the pro plastic is too damn floppy)

the z talon I have is dark orange. When I got it, I thought it was discraft's version of pro plastic (other than it was stamped elite z). That talon became a straight flyer quick. It seemed LESS durable than my other elite z discs, yet I did like it's feel and flight characteristics.
Incidentally, that z talon and my new x trackers fly almost identically.
