Star SL

Postby rodman » Thu Apr 13, 2006 7:17 pm

What do you guys think of the SL? It's flight chart numbers are impressive showing that it has only a small fade left at the end which would generate that coveted S curve. I'm considering adding one to my stable of drivers.

I think I'm more into collecting plastic than I am actually into disc golf. I cant quit buying discs. Help.

I know that for calm conditions, there are probably no discs that will outfly the pro starfire, which is the SL mold. Yes this thing S curves too.

This may be a case of the blind leading the blind. ;)

I say that if you're really concerned with getting as good as possible in the shortest amount of time, then fiddling around with as many different discs as possible may not be the best approach. However, it's incredibly enjoyable for most players, so if you're just in it to have fun then go ahead and try away. As long as you keep in mind which discs will aid in your development, then trying different ones out probably won't have a huge impact.

I've heard good things about the Star SL. I threw the Pro Starfire for a while and thought that it got a bit squirrley after it beat in. From what I understand, the Star version may not have that problem.

the star sl is pretty stable. saw some big guns throwing them and they were one of the straighter flying discs for them.

I made a mistake when getting my star SL getting it in max weight... after hitting trees many many times though as well as other objects, it became a bit more manageable. It's a good disc for distance though, the wind tosses it around a bit though.

Just threw one today for a few rounds at our local course. Threw it sidearm and I overdrove many holes. Some I never overdrive otherwise, but as for the others, I thought I threw it light enough but it still went too far. I love this disc. Its 168g and it does fly straight. The only thing I noticed with it was at the end of its flight, it'd hit the ground and make a huge skip to the right. I landed it right by the pin a few times but the huge skip gave me some putting practice.

Threw one yesterday

Postby rodman » Sat Apr 15, 2006 6:03 pm

I had an opportunity to throw one (and order one) yesterday. I'd say it is as long as any in my bag. The one I threw wasnt broken in so it didnt really move much right but a small fade at the end wasnt bad. I'd say as I develop my form and get my distance up this one will be a performer. I cant wait to put it in my bag.

i used to throw a pro starfire... then i switched to the D XL and think the XL is a much more consistent flyer, even if it's not as far. similar flight paths, though.
