I asked him about the weights and he said the heaviest star he got was 174 and he only got a couple 180 BBs. I was supposed to be #17/18 on the list and all left were discs <173g.

What's the deal with winter v. Summer? Does champ plastic get sucky in the very cold? I'm in the dirty south, so "winter" is a relative term.

This disc sounds very appealing. For those who have thrown it does it actually fly like a roc, just longer?

No its faster than a roc...flies more like a buzz with a lil more fade on the end

Bought one of these yesterday and played a round of ground in 30 degree temps and consistent winds from all directions. With the wind blowing left to right toward the 380 foot pin, i threw the 172 gr BB with about 25ft up with a slight \ and the disc glided on a line toward the basket and landed about 60 ft short which is excellent for a hack like me. The shot would've been more interesting if the basket was in the shorter placement. Like the feel of the plastic on the BBs, its more tactile than normal Champion.

I love this new champ plastic. I'm throwing Beasts made from that also.
