Default DX vs Pro-D

I have several Innova DX discs. It's my main plastic. Just got a Discraft Pro-D disc. An Avenger SS.

DX and Pro-D are the least expensive and least durable plastics offered by each maker.

Quote:
Wikipedia: The DX plastic is available in the widest variety of disc models and weights, plus it is offered at an economical price.
Quote:
Wikipedia: Pro-D Plastic is the cheapest type of plastic, and is also the least durable. However, Pro-D plastic provides extremely great grip.
Comparing a small stack of DX to one Pro-D, Pro-D seems softer and (maybe) less durable than DX.

Your thoughts?

I've found the opposite. My Pro-D discs have felt more rigid than DX. I do feel that the DX is grippier, though. Maybe it all depends on the run.

I think Pro-D is not as durable or holds flight patterns as long as DX does. I do like elite X plastic better than some of Innova's Pro plastic molds.

There are good and bad runs of both, I like the good runs of both just fine.

I love my Pro-D Buzz.. Never tried any other Pro-D.. Never got in to Discraft though. For DX I have a Sidewinder that I love.. I also have a Beast that I'm gonna be trying out this spring!!

This is where I'm at, too.

One thing to note with Discraft is that several of their discs were designed in X plastic and end up flying better in X than D. Innova designed more of their discs in DX so they end up flying better in DX than Pro. It's not a huge deal, but it's worth thinking about.

Pro D has a good feel to them. Not too stiff and gritty but soft and smooth. I would choose Innova Discs in Pro D over them in DX, although it would never happen ha. I like the older runs of Pro D better than recent runs though.

I like pro-d for putters because I'm more of a fan of stiff putters and some DX aviars I had at first were actually really soft. Like r-pro-ish. The only pro-d disc that has stayed in my bag for an extended time was a Buzzz tho. As was stated above I think the biggest discrepancy in the two Brand's runs of plastic is pro vs elite x. I had a pro destroyer once and barely used it a month because it got so flippy. Conversely I've had an X Nuke for the better part of a year and it just keeps getting better.
