The metallic Ghosts he was selling around XMas? Yes. You could say that the Legend plastic is, well, Legendary. My Rival is like a 11x Teebird in one of the best runs of swirly pearly Gold Line.

I have seen pics of lime green Legend plastic, but I have yet to hold one. My L Rival and Ghost are both the darker "metallic" color. FWIW, my L Ghost has a dome somewhere between an Icon and Pinnacle.

I'm new to the legacy scene. Never followed them or got drew into the hype, but starting to check them out. What's this Legend plastic you speak of? I've never heard of nor seen it.

Legend plastic reminds me of the texture bowling balls have. It (and sparkle plastic) are done for special runs. Here's the top view and then a view that shows off the flare well.

I wanted so bad to like the FR Rival I picked up a while back, because they are so freakin pretty and cheap compared to 11x. The plastic is some of the best feeling I've come across, right up there with the taffy plastic Innova used to put out. But I just didn't like it near as much as my 11x. The rim has a pretty sharp edge to it, and seems deeper than a TB. The 11x CALs just feel so good in my hand, nothing else comes close. And the Rival I had didn't have near the HSS that a TB has. It had a very angular turn and would fade back pretty hard. It seemed like it lost it's HSS before it's LSS. Maybe it was the weight, it was a 168g purple one. I could see where the heavier ones would fly better...

Legacy has some of the nicest plastic in the game IMO.
