With the new DX, when you knock on the flightplate it sounds like wood. Think of the deep purple DX from the early 90's. Shiny, tacky, firm, VERY durable.

Exactly... My Stingray still looks new! And I played a very technical coast live oak woodland course (coast live oak = rock that grows with age) the other day twice having to use the stingray quite a few times for air shots and rollers, it's now the only DX disc I have to have oak sap on it...

How do the new flat-top DX Valks fly?

Very stable when new like flat top CE/JK Valks, the one I tried was 175 and I wish I was able to experiment with weights from 166 to 17 to find my personal optimal weight. More glide than their CE/JK counterparts with a more gentle fade. The Flat top valk I tried was also a grippier, almost more like a pro plastic, valkyrie. It still has better durability than other recent runs of DX though. I hope they make it in the more stiff durable DX I have my stingray in.

So based on the responses reguarding the new DX, would it be more likely for it to Warp or Taco before it scratches or chips? If so, would it be more like the result from breaking in Pro plastic or champion plastic (loses high speed stability before losing low speed fade) or would it break in like DX is supposed to?
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.

It can only be described as money. I saw/felt Sharks, Cobras, Leopards, Vipers, that seem like the new DX too. Also, the new run of champion Valkyries are flat top... :!:

My DX Coyote heat warped. It was in my closed bag in my trunk. It is summer though :?

I just got a new gazelle in the new dx. I love it. I tended to turn over my old one and this one is much easier for me to control. The thing is lazer straight sometimes.

I just picked one up too :P 175 White DX Gazelle with a gold flake foil stamp. I have yet to throw it, but anticipate doing so...

I don't have a good disc golf retailer in my area. I went to the one place near me last week, and all their valks, teebirds, etc. looked and felt just like old DX plastic. It's more of a toy/hobby store that just happens to sell discs, so I'm not surprised if these are still from 2005 or even earlier.

Have these been around long enough so that if I order from a large online retailer, it'll pretty much be the new DX or do I still have to specify? I'm interested in a valk and a teebird.

Blake works at www.gottagothrow.com and might be able to, if you ask nicely, hand pick stock. Anyone have a PDGA user handle? I want to find out from Dave what has been run, what is on the way to the stores and maybe projected times of other molds in the new DX
