It seems funny now to think back on it, but people really bitched about the $12 tye-dyed KC Pro discs.

The Ching discs started with the base DX disc price and then hit you with the custom stamp and art prices. I never called Tim and asked him directly about the Ching discs, but they were charging a DX base price at a time when that $2.00 plastic upgrade was well established.
Don't misunderstand my post as coming over to the dark side. I still stand by my belief that it's different than dx. I have never said it was premium or should be premium plastic. I love the feel of them but they're just as durable as dx.

As far as it being more over stable than dx. From my experience the heavier the ching roc/cobra the more over stable it is. All ching has been flat which helps make it over stable, but the same can be said about flat dx Rocs/Cobras.

My favorites are the ching Aviars, the seem to hold their characteristics for a long time, they are more stable than over stable and feel nice in the hand.

The ching Aviar that I've used since 1998 has a copyright logo as part of the stamp that says "1998 Cool Greys, Inc". I Googled it and found this.
