X is lousy plastic. It warps and scuffs easily. Plus it seems to lose stability easily for no apparent reason.

Don't expect a long life out of any X disc.

That's weird, my experiences with X have proven to be the opposite.

I like X plastic. Especially for the Buzzz. I carry 3 of them in the bag, my oldest one is about 3 yrs old now.

I thought I read something about an X Nuke??

Twmccoy you play in colorado, right? Are your courses pretty rocky and wooded?

My experience with X plastic has been positive, I play in wooded courses but I am selective to when I throw it.
It will beat up easier, but I like beat discs.
I have an elite X XL that is 4-5 years old and it is a sweet flyer.

And the sparkly plastic is cool, I traded a few X Avengers that had that glitter glam.

I have a Buzzz and a Wildcat in X plastic. They are both great discs.

Hopefully Discraft will bring back some molds in X plastic, they have been posting on FB how ESP is expensive and in this economy ESP is not selling with certain molds. MAybe we will see a resurgence of X plastic discs.

Dear Discraft,

Want money? X Predators and X Wasps.

Yup. When I wanted money, I had no problem selling my X wasps and X preds. If the X wasp was made into a reg production disc I could stop throwing these indestructable Z buzzz's. I would have to buy wasps more frequently.

I would love to see a x stalker i bet that thing would have some serious glide. a x nuke might be a hyzer flipping machine as well.

X Plastic is awesome! more durable than pro, and when I threw avengers I preferred the x over any other plastic, especially the domey stuff and the metal flake plastic was pretty sweet too. Too bad they don't offer more molds in them.

Anyone interested in X Avengers? I've got a bunch on my trade list doing a 2-4-1 deal on them, but no takers...
