Agreed; I think this is the reason I like the R-Pro better than the DX Even though I usually don't like soft discs.
Maybe I should try flattening the dome of one of my DX using the hot water technique? DIY dome flattening ha ha

I recently started bagging a 150 g DX Dart for my lay up shots from about 40 - 80 feet out. I can usually get it pretty close to the basket and it will sit there. The glide and flat flight is better than my putter which hyzers out at that distance.

I've been messing around with the R-Pro and DX darts R-Pro is really nice and neutral.
My 150g DX Dart is close enough to R-Pro to make me happy but the 175g DX Dart is super stiff. Still great, I just don't like it as much as the R-Pro variant.

I guess I gotta try the Champ/Star/G* variants now hahaha

Does anyone still use this disc? I'd love to hear how the Champs compare to the R-Pro.
I bought an old opaque champ dart ages ago. Its suprisingly stable for a dart! R-pros are money though (there is a reason why sexton only uses those). They are basically a baby comet. Nice dome, great glide, and usually nestles flat.

Ive also tried a star dart which felt nice for driving too, but it was oddly flippy and lacked dome. Could have been a one off though.

Precisely why I love them!!!

Thanks for the feedback on the Champ. I'm intrigued. It's definitely going on my short-list of discs to buy

I was tempted to try out some r-pro darts, but I was too worried about them being too soft. What grade of gateway plastic would you give them? If they are a super soft I could be cool with that, if they are a SSSS there is no way.

Mine fall into the no way category

Love the R-Pro Dart. It will hold whatever line you put it on. I much prefer it to DX, even though I like other molds in DX.

Played a Dart vs Colt round from the white tees. Backhand, forehand, whatever... the Dart delivered for me all round. Ace runs, park jobs, circle 2 putts... no problem for the Dart! I’m not loving it for primary putting duties, but everything else seems great.

I know I’ve said this before, but I’m shocked that this disc doesn’t get more love!
