I think the discs Innova is choosing to make in starlight plastic is just senseless and nothing more than a gimmick. Making high speed drivers in it makes sense but to make molds in discs that are already flippy as crap in this is just ridiculous. And this is coming from an older player also so no need to chime in and say that Masters players like them, not this one. Very disappointed in a lot of decisions Innova has been making.

great for less powerful players. I bet there's a huge portion of disc golfers (not the ones who frequent message boards) that would disagree with you. A lot of people can't flip a Valkyrie or a Roadrunner.

Yeah, I'm going to have to disagree with you there.

I have a x-out 126 DX Valk
You just hold it above your head in a strong tail wind, then just let go of it, for your second longest drive ever

Seriously, its tough to do any thing with.

I have a 140 Wraith in Dx. Had no idea they could be made that light. It's almost unusable. My 150 Archangel is more predictable.

Another upside is it takes dye well, others in that low of a weight seem to almost always be DX. Nothing says "I love you hunny, let's go disc" like new plastic covered with dye.

Has anyone tried to let a young kid throw one of these? Seems like it could be a great disc for my 6 year old son.

It is hard to find lightweight discs that are slow enough and durable at the same time. My home course is all rocks so a DX disc is a waste of money for me - chewed up after 2-3 rounds.

He throws a really light super flippy Bliz Katana (135g) RHFH right now pretty well but I know it is way too fast for him so thought this may be a good alternative.
