It seems that pearly and non-pearly are around the same price, so it shouldn't make a difference. But if you're just asking out of curiosity, I have no idea. You'd think that it'd be rather apparent, but I bet it's not. That's a hard thing to determine, where the line is, pearly or non.

The pearly ones are just that, pearly. They have lines and sometime circles of the weighting agent uneven spread through them and appear to be almost textured with vary glossiness. You usually can't see through them clearly, but they aren't opaque. Other champ discs are usually either called opaque (the more solid colors, looks like a blend of champ and star) or candy (clear enough to see through with no pearl or waves in the plastic). As far as champion rocs go, I have gotten both pearly and nonpearly discs from every year I have bought them since they switched from CE to regular champ. I will take some pics to show the differences when I have time one night.

thanks and that would be awesome to see the difference. FWIW i was able to tell that my 2 USDGC rocs are non-pearl but I was able to tell that by the serial numbers that came with the discs.
