I'm sure the answer is already in this thread, and if there's no answer by the time I get home, I'll go digging through for it, but with the bubble stamp QJLS's, how many runs were there and what blends of plastic are there? Most of mine feel like 11x champ plastic. I have one that is an opaque green, with the multicolored stamp, but feels much more like a pro/ce blend, as its not as sturdy as my test run ce jls, or any of my other qjs. Then I have another QJLS (stamp was wiped so I can't tell if it was multicolor or not. It is clear, but less so than my other qj's. The plastic feels more like the ce jls in my hand though.

I figured, the green opaque qjls and the last qjls I described are ce blends, but I wasn't sure how many runs/blends are out there.

So....I'm not one to jump to conclusions, buuutttt the Sirius Scorpius I just picked up doesn't look and feel any different from my stack of Destroyers. Like at all. The PDGA specs say the rim was 2.4cm (which is the same as the PD2) compared to the Destroyer's 2.2. Not feeling that either. I haven't thrown it yet, so I'll reserve judgment, but I think I just got ripped off.

It was intended to be a destroyer type disc

Yeah, I get that, but maybe I should have been more transparent. My point was that there is no difference. Like I said, I haven't thrown it yet but so far I don't see how this is not a Destroyer with Millennium stamped on it.

I can say this

Astra looks like archon, they fly differently

Quasar looks like boss, they fly differently

And that's after multiple runs of both

That's a good point, you're right. What I was getting at was the disc that was submitted to the PDGA for approval is NOT what was put out. That much is evident.

Id say more abruptly LSS than a destroyer but very similar HSS. Of course this all depends in the plh of each but from my field testing with my stack of destroyers compared to my one q scorpius this is the case.

Ive let buddies who aren't as familiar with destroyers as I am and they couldn't tell a difference. I can however notice a difference but it is minimal and like I said it seems to really only be in the LSS portion of flight.

Also this is just from memory but the flight plate on my Q seemed thinner than both my star and champ destroyers
When I'm not itchin for discin, I have the yearnin to get the plastic turnin

The sirius scorpious sounds like I might like it. Where can I get one or two at about 170 in weight?

I'll have to get my calipers out. My hands/fingers aren't calibrated very well. :lol:

I could push them all out to around 275' if I threw them with anny and let them flex out. If thrown flat, I could only get the new Q and 1.2 S out to 225', the 1.1 S out to 250', and the Sanny just a bit further. The 1.1 S and Sanny are 9/10 so that should make them a bit less stable. I've been using the 1.2 S for shorter sidearm shots. Seems to work fairly decent.


So the 1.2's are wicked overstable? I'm getting low on my Sanny Q's and need to start planning.

It is for my weak arm. I don't know how long it will take to beat in but it's more overstable than my Sanny's. The plastic feels a bit softer.

Can anyone give me a rundown of current OLF's? What are the "good" ones molding up like? I'm looking for a more stable, but still workable, compliment for my Beasts in the same speed range. Figured these would be a good mold.
