I'm curious. Are the flight ratings differences for star versus champ all because champ plastic is more stable or is the mold actually different?

There are a couple like this at my home course so if anyone has tossed a light one I'd love a review.
See my post #974 in this thread if you like. It gives my "not a big arm" perspective.

They don't need another flippy under stable disc, they need to go make more flattop champ firebirds. Or a more OS flattop mid.

I'm pretty sure it's not an either/or kind of thing.

Champ plastic is generally the most stable in all Innova molds. The Tern has concrete numbers to reflect that, as the difference is pretty considerable.

So it sounds like you're saying it's the same mold (same shape) but that the champ plastic is just much more stable? I always knew champ plastic was more stable but when I saw 2 full points difference on the turn ratings (-4 versus -2) it just made me curious as I didn't think plastic type made that much difference but maybe it can? Thanks for the input.

I think plastic does affect th flight. I have always noticed idye plastic is super stable. does not turn as much as champ plastic.

Got to throw the 163g Champ Tern today. Holy smokes this disc goes deep! Threw it from one baseball field and across another until it hit a snowbank. That thing was on fire. Really impressive. Might try a little heavier one to get a bit more stability though. Fun disc. Super deep.
