My question for everyone here is how long does each plastic type seem to last for everyone before it breaks? I don't mean break in, but like breaks where it is too unpredictable to be useful anymore. I had a dx boss which was fun for a bit, but then I hit a tree hard and I could just tell the way it came off it wasn't going to be right. I play wooded courses and ive hit trees with plenty of dx and I can tell they will be alright, but sometimes with a weird hit I can tell it "broke" by the way it came off. So now this boss can get some alright flights, but will have a weird and unpredictable turn. It will turn very hard when it definitely wasn't supposed to. Same thing with my pro starfire. Great disc and had plenty of flight left in it, but it took a hard smack into a tree. The way it came off I could tell it broke. Sure enough next through it came off right and started to do its soft turn and then got more fluttery mid flight than at release which is very odd and became very understable and never came back. So I needed a mid and wanted to try a good run plastic so got a z buzzz. First day out with it it was sick. Did everything I wanted it too. Could forehand it 300'+ and rip backhands. Nearly got 2 aces with it my first day. I know a disc breaks in, but after that first day, I can no longer forehand it. I am throwing it very different know and it seems less predictable to me. Still a sweet disc, but I am surprised by how much the z changed after one day of play. So far doesn't seem so much tougher than the dx I usually buy even playing in the woods. My dx destroyer has lasted I would say about 80 throws and taken a few good smacks, but nothing where it look like it broke. So what do you think the life of each type of plastic is? Have you noticed a champ or star run plastic "break"?
Dx/D: 10-20 throws to break in. Life ~100
Pro/elite: 25 throws to break in. Life ~180
Z/Champ: 30 to break in. Life ~250-infinite
Star: 60 to break in. Life ~200-infinite
