Question Beast, Old mold vs. new mold

I want to know if anyone out there knows the difference between the old Innova Beast mold and the new mold.

Any info is welcome, but trying to figure out why the mold would be changed, and what are the flight characteristics of each?
(I think this one might be a good one for Three Putt)

The old one is more vintage, and the new one is more modern.

The original mold was more stable. Once the Orc came out, Innova decided the two discs were too close in flight and retooled the Beast to be flippier. That's pretty much it. I know people who get ga-ga over old mold Beasts, but an Orc or Pro Starfire is a pretty good substitute and easier to find.

Old mold rules supreme but the new one is great too. It is just used differently.

burst of common sense!

Thank you Three Putt for the answer...had heard something along those lines, and needed a confirmation on the subject. Now, if there is only a way to tell the difference when attempting to trade for one...

There is 1 of the old molds at Roscoe Ewing, way to the left from the tee at hole 15. Old school DX, orange. When I started playing again this year, I had one in my bag that I let my brother who never played before use because I never used it, it was too much for me.

Hindsight, he shouldnt have been using it either but its what I had spare at the time. When I went to but another, I was suprised the had on there that its was understable, then found out they had changed the mold.

IMO the coolest thing about the old mold was it was good in DX, which the Orc is not. They went from having something that's close to the Orc but good in DX to a disc that's close to the Sidewinder. Not a big improvement.
