Default Jawbreaker Plastic?

Just saw a post about this on Discraft's FB page. Is this a limited run or a new production blend? I'm hoping this is a more durable plastic then Pro-D or their X-Soft. If so I might have to start putting with Bangers again.

Kind of looks like the old APX swirl plastic.

Could be there KC Pro/350g type plastic they've been lacking. Maybe a production run of the CT (Crazy Tough) plastic they used for the Ledgestone Challangers with some swirly style.

People in the Zone thread have mentioned that it feels like there's rubber in it so I wouldn't hold my breath for a KC blend.

CTish would be amazeballs. If you told me I could have a CT Hornet Id have skipped work today to throw it.

I may have wrongly assumed CT would be very similar to XT.

I'd throw an XT Hornet all day for sure...

Damn you 5 minute edit rule!

Yeah, CT is more like G9i plastic than anything. It doesn't feel as good or as durable as G9i but chunks like it so I'm sure it'll stop chunking after a while like G9i does.

Those swirls kinda look like the release agent/speckles in Vibram discs.

That's what I was thinking. Someone above says that folks have said it felt rubbery so that would fit in with the vibram-ish plastic as well.

The coloration also looks like some of the really early run star stuff to me. Lately it's been more swirled if anything, but some of the early run star was sort of blotchy like that appears to be.

I like the look of it. "Jawbreaker" is a perfect name for that appearance.

I just ordered a couple of each for my store to try them out. Hopefully they'll be here by Tuesday. I believe that it is going to be a normal production run based on the way they put them on their order form. They created a whole new section for Jawbreaker.
