Yeah, it obviously depends on what you want to do with the disc. But generally, I go for plastics which are best suited to the role I want that disc to play. So for example, since the Tursas and Underworld are both US discs, I'm going to start with Tournament plastic for them, since Tournament is more US than VIP. If the Underworld ends up being too US in Tournament, then I'll try it in VIP. Conversely, as McFer said, VIP (Opto) makes sense for the Stag, since it's an OS mold.
All that said, the opposite also works: an Underworld is likely to be straighter in VIP than in Tournament, which clearly has its perks. It just depends on what you want out of the disc.
