comparison to x plastic

Postby TexasOutlaw » Tue Jan 24, 2006 11:42 am

Is Discrafts's x plastic comparable to Innova's DX? I'm finding that it beats up a little quicker than Pro line plastic.

It beats quicker than pro, but tends to be longer, what ive found is
in durability (between innova and discraft)
Pro D, DX, X, Pro, Star, Champion, Z
in overall flight distance sortest to longest
(Blake would disagree and say DX is longer than X but...)
Z, Champ, Star, Pro, Pro D, DX, X

Thank you; that was exactly what I was trying to figure. I really like the x plastics, but I'm worried about durability. The reason I went to z years ago was durability. So, my only other option is to do what Blake does, carry 3 of the same mold and alternate. I'm already on the right track with my avengers: I have a stable one and an overstable one. So, I just need to get more trackers and cyclones.

I was very surprised at how quickly my x avenger went from being overstable to stable.

that seems to be the best way to get best performance without going through single discs too fast. I could use a new x cyclone, mine just perfect straight, but dosnt seem htat its going to stay that way long.

discs wear out due to the number of throws they see per round.

with blunt discs this doesn't age as quickly.

basic idea is if you throw 1 disc off the tee on every hole it sees 18 throws.
if you carry 2 of it and alternate, each sees 9 throws.
if you carry 3 of it and alternate, each sees 6 throws.
...
if you carry 6 of it and alternate, each sees 3 throws. etc.

wooded holes will wear out discs faster than open holes.

basic idea is, if you shuffle, or even carry stable, under, and overstable wears of each disc that having 3 will extend the life out triple.

I've found that X plastic warps very easily. The only X disc I really like is the Avenger. As for pro, I feel that unless you are hitting trees or concrete a lot that this is superior plastic. It seems to hold together better than X.

Unfortunately, I'm finding the same thing. I may have to go back to elite z for durability.
