I am not sure if this is the same with other companies, but I would think it is.

Also, the really floppy discs are nice to spike hyzer with because when they hit the ground, they soften the impact and seem to roll away less often.

Quite the opposite with the Anode, actually.

Johnny pro is its own plastic. in-between dx and star. it has great grip, breaks in well, not as fast as dx.
