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...
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.
the new DX is feel wear like DX should. They sratch and nick , but i havent tacoed one yet. I've been throwing a DX wraith and teebird for over a month now....on a mostly wooded course. No big nicks or chunks out, and no taco-ing yet.....as i hit trees often..LOL
My DX Coyote heat warped. It was in my closed bag in my trunk. It is summer though

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
