How do folks think this will fit into a (or their) stable of Rocs? Seems like it will be like a slightly seasoned DX b/c of reduced fade, but will fight wind a little better b/c of champ plastic and flat top.

I think itll fly pretty closely to a beefy buzz. Itll be pretty stable to overstable unless thrown flat and hard. You may see some turn on that kind of throw but otherwise it will be pretty hss and very lss with terrible glide I imagine

I can't wait to throw it, i was hoping it'd be more overstable, but sounds like it is more stable than over stable. That's alright though. Sometimes having a consistent straight flyer is nice.

I am confused, is it going to be 50 protostars to each retailer? or 50 protostars per week for a couple weeks? I would like to get a protostar but would like the weight and color I want

They are making a million proto stars so I don't think you'll have a problem...

So while everyone is hoarding as many of these as possible, do you guys think these won't go up in value as much as you hoped?

I wasn't around during the CE era, but I think what made CE so valuable is the smaller number of people that hoarded it(and the awesome plastic blend). Maybe people instantly knew CE discs would skyrocket in value, but it probably wasn't like it is now with all the Innova fanboys hoarding new production runs in hopes of unloading later for nice profits. Again, I wasn't playing DG when CE was in production so IDK if people were as hyped about those as people are today about new stuff. But you know the sentiment about "collectible" stuff, it usually doesn't raise in value like something that becomes collectible organically

That being said... Im going to buy at least 10 of these and will be throwing the majority of them.

Im not saying these wont go up in value, but anyone thinking that in 10 years these will be comparable to CE Teebirds, or the like, is probably a little delusional. Although, rare off colors may fetch a good amount for proto Roc rainbow creators, like MrChurch with his whippets

I could be wrong...
