C.E. Plastic question

I recently bought a champion edition teebird and was wondering how to tell what run it is. It's blueberry colored and not very transparent.

I have a question: why do people like CE discs? Are they more for collectors or do you actually throw them and prefer them for some reason?

I have one ce disc that a friend found. It looks like it is beat up pretty bad. But it flys like it is brand new. It is the most durable plastic ever made, hands down. The plastic feels great.
But most people collect them over throwing them.

the first 3 runs of ce plastic are definitely not indestructible, I have witnessed several broken ce discs. the 4th and 5th run are more "champion-like" and much more durable but definitely not the taffy runs of 1st-3rd. Indestructible = jolly launcher plastic. people like the ce discs for 2 reasons, for collection purposes and for novelty purposes. there are also an old school following of ce discs from the people that were playing disc golf when ce's were released and simply prefer the feel.

I love my first run CE eagle plastic. It's not indestructo at all, but it is really chalky/grippy but firm.
And it flies straight as hell, far, and with fade in pretty good winds.

CE WAS incredibly durable. Many have been/were in people's bags for a decade. The problem with the durability claim is that all plastic has a lifespan before it starts breaking down, even CE.

Notice the "fingerprinty" claims? That's part of the plastic that's breaking down and making the plastic brittle/prone to cracking/shattering. Jolly Launcher is durable now, but it's also less than a year old. Let's see how durable it is in ten years.

At this point, I think CE is more for collecting than throwing unless you like seeing plastic that is extremely expensive shatter.
