OOP plastic is just as easy to obtain as stock stuff...it just depends on how deep your pockets are.

The reason most of us pros keep throwin the old plastic is because we still have the discs after many years of playing with them and they are like a good friend to us.

I'm sure any of them can throw the new molds and plastic just as well. But why do you need to when you already have a bunch of the discs you like to throw?

The Tern isn't old by any means and he throws that. Sometimes it's hard to switch up things when you are so used to certain discs.

New discs aren't any worse than the old. In fact most of these "now valuable" discs were not really thought of as great when they came out.

Avery's bag isn't much different. 10X Whippet, Kenny Glow and 3 11X Rocs, Champ Glow Gator, and 3 PFN Star TeeBirds. I'd like to be able to pick up some of those 09 World Champ stamp Aviars. Great looking stamp.
PFN?

I don't disagree with you, but I have also heard many stories of pros trading for the old molds to stockpile while on tour. It was one of the things Feldberg mentioned as a positive for moving to Lat's team...not having to hunt for what he needed.

McBeth's proof that pros can throw a large majority of stock discs and not miss a beat.

I have quite a few PFN discs, I never thought of them as better than discs with flight numbers much less more valuable. Are they really worth more cash? Should I stop throwing them?

They're bringing a premium on the Facebook auction site (at least they were). Better sell them now while you can still take advantage of the buffoons...
