Better plastic is literally more economical in the long run. Unless you lose a lot of plastic.

All long as its not super light or a mold thats super flippy out of the box its nothing to worry about.
Dont be afraid to rub it on carpet or bend the crap out of it.

I have boxes of back ups but keep my beat up discs in the bag b/c theyre so moch more valuable to me. Some, like challengers have been in the bag for almost ten yrs. My cyclones usually last a couple years....and theyre still usefull, just for a different role (or roll).

Base plastic will usally fly farther and truer for new players and when beat will offer lines that no premium will fly any time soon.

I have an aviar and a roc in the bag, that between them, are running 6+ years each. Both DX.

Drivers are a different story. Gouges and scrapes create more drag and resistance. Thus the more beat, the more flippy.

Basically you have your high end plastics which are clear like opto, champion etc.. Some discs will mold up either with a mix of plastics giving them a "pearly" look vs being translucent and clear. If you know what real pearls look like with different colors muted together its similar to that.

search "pearly' innova disc you will see many on google.

How much does throwing a disc in an open field affect stability? Especially compared to lets say, hitting a tree?

Unless said "open field" is a parking lot, hitting the ground at the end of the discs flight shouldn't affect the stability for a very very long time.

Depends on how you're throwing. If you're throwing overhands and big spike hyzers into the ground it's going to break the disc in almost as fast as hitting a tree. Your usual backhand/forehand throws in a grassy field effects stability very little as long as the disc isn't repeatedly hitting the ground at a direct angle.
