What was Ching?
 
This is something i've been wondering for a while, and with the re-release of the Tank i felt i'd ask. What was Ching? was it a stamping procedure? Or another line? Does it relate to The Ching that makes the Juju?.




I apologize if this is already a thread. I couldnt find one, and i feel like even if i did it would be more than 45 days old.

I say Ching back in the 90s and early 2000 was a type of plastic. Similar to DX but different.
I know Three Putt will tell you I am completely wrong yet he won't be able to explain what it is/was.

I have Ching Aviars, Rocs and Cobras in my bag at different times. I can tell the difference in plastic the same way everyone can with the other Innova materials. By how it feels.

Back before the Internet this was never an issue, we all agreed it was a different type of cheaper plastic.

Ching is a disc golf manufacturer/brand. Innova manufactured discs for Ching back in the day similar to what you see with Millennium and Discmania now. The current Ching brand is manufactured by another molder.

So it was indeed the same company that currently makes the Juju?

Yeah, I would say both answers are right. Even when Innova had their Ching plastic, Ching still had discs of their own that were produced by Innova (Tank, Bomb, Stinger and Sniper). I was told that they stopped having Innova make their discs after they used the thumbtrak from the Tank to create the oh so popular Rhyno, however I can't really verify that.

there was never any ching plastic- ching was at first a dye sublimation process for putting full color stamps on discs as developed by a guy named mike holgate and leased by innova. after that they also went into the disc business with discs such as the bomb, the sniper, etc. which were at that time produced by innova. i'm not sure who manufactures their discs now.

here is a ching full color glow aviar. the plastic is real soft but not gummy like many soft putters. definitely not dx. i've also seen this same disk but the plastic was firm. weird stuff
