champion stingrays are san marino, actually. i'm not sure why they ended up so much more overstable than DXs). STAR stingrays are the ontario mold but supposedly ended up more like the DXs (less stable than champion) even though the ontario mold is supposed to be the more stable of the two molds. sounds like dave may be sweet talking us DX stingray lovers into buying the STAR... but we'll see when people start posting reviews.

damn i'm a nerd.

I have an old z xs that turns right very well, but a d xs beats up faster (mine is at 166 g).

Right now, I am using a slipstream gt for right turns and rollers.

If you want more discs to add to the confusion you can include the S or E Element and Aurora MS or QMS, assuming you're looking for a midrange.

I'll also agree that sidearm may be worth checking out.

I got mixed up, thanks for correcting me on that.

there is always going to be the debate of what disc is best for right turns for RHBH players.....stingers, roadrunners, valks. What i've found that experimenting is the only way you will find out what works for you. This experimenting also means different techniques. What manufactures say a disc will do is their interpretation to a mean....it's the extremes where people start using them for other purposes.

just my $0.02

Ever since I cracked my second stingray in a row (granted they both took a few 100% throws into a rock :?) on a hard cypress, I've grown accustomed to throwing my rocs for those shots if <350. Throw my semi-beat roc with no hyzer for a quicker right turn, and the later of a turn I want I use a flippier Roc with more hyzer.

yeah... i think i've cracked 3 DX stingrays so far. i'm still a devoted DX stingray user, though. in fact, it's probably the only disc i've ever cracked... no matter, i still love 'em. i can't throw 'em 350' though... so for people with more power, flipping the beat roc may achieve what i do with my DX stingrays.

Just an update.

The Star Stingray - works great for the #3 at the local course.

Did exactly what I wanted - curls right just past the tree line - sets me up great for the approach.

More understable than the Champion Stingray I let go on Ebay this week.
