archon/astra ??
 
what is the difference between the archon and the astra?

Astra is less stable especially the in Millennium pro plastic. The Astra also doesn't seem to "dump" as much as the archon does

Dump?

i liked the flight of the astra better. i had the same question and got both. The millenium plastic feels a lot nicer IMO and had a lil less HSS

Q-Astra are awesome. My longest driver. They seem to love being hyser flipped.

The Archon & Astra should be pretty close, but like was said above, the Astra is a touch more understable:

All of these answers are (partially) wrong. They're the same disc.

Innova molds milennium, the Astra is an Archon made in Millenium plastics. Any flight characteristic difference is attributable to the variability of stability in different plastics.

Your options via millenium are basically a Pro Archon and a metal flake champ archon.

Discs can look the same and fly differently

In this case they do

The q-Astra flies significantly different enough from champion archon to prove that

Same with boss and quasar or scorpius and destroyer

Thanks for proving your ability to compare discs. Next time bring something productive to a discussion

So what exactly does Millennium do when they take the an innova mold, dont change anything and slap their label on it to make it fly "better" or "different"? Serious question. Seems like they could take blizzard dominators, change the name to something star/space related, and a handful of guys on here would swear up and down that it didnt suck.
