Any interest for a stiff, firm star plastic? (opposite of gstar)

does this already exist?
I haven't bought a new star disc in awhile. Are they consistently stiff/firm?
Or does it vary? I know the older star plastics have varied.

We have GStar, now enter PornStar. Feelin' stiff already

I just got a Star Teebird from GGGT that is nice and stiff and pretty darn flat for Teebirds. I have no idea if this is a one-off, or this is common in Star plastic these days. I don't throw many Star discs, but this one feels great. Flies great too.

I would love a Porn Star blend. Between star and champion. Nice and stiff but you can still get a grip under wet conditions.

Was it one of the white flag/flydye stb marked tb?


And yes, to answer your question some of the tb coming out lately have been quite flat. The jolly launcher is decently flexible with good grip. I have both white and yellow stb marked new star tb that are max weight and very stiff. Stiffest star plastic I've ever felt, and way more stiff than currrent champ.

Most of the star discs I have owned were pretty damn stiff. I haven't really had any star mids or putters though so maybe its just more common in the drivers?

I believe you are describing opaque champ discs. The champ eagle-x I have is opaque yellow and I can really dig my thumb in but is rock hard like JL

I guess I'm not looking for rock hard either, but definitely not a lot of give if you press down on it.

rigid champy G* would be perfect for me I have an 05 CFR tourney stamp starfire that is medium stiff and has a champy G* look and feel. A Jolly Launcher G* blend sounds sounds nice innova
