They differentiate it now as Evo Platinum and Evo Diamond, with platinum being more along the lines of star/goldline and diamond being closer to champ/opto but you can sometimes get diamond plastic that is opaque/grippy closer to what you would expect from platinum.
The Samurai I have seems to be kind of like star, but of lesser quality. Opaque and stiff. It also seems to scuff/scrape easily. Mine doesn't differentiate between diamond or platinum either.

I liked the disc itself, but I've definitely seen better plastic.
