Default Best Plastic Lineup

Who do you feel has the best plastic lineup and why?

While this is highly opinionated, I please ask for feedback from folks with experience with multiple manufacturers.

Reason I bring this up, I mainly throw Innova plastics and noticed I really only like the XT and GStar. Champion is slicker than other comparable brands, same with Star. ESP same boat. JB is close to XT but still not as tacky. I do not have much experience with trilogy stuff but their Lucid definitely seems to have more grip than Champion. Biofusion and Gstar seem very similar, would like to know if any of the Classic lines are similar to the XT.

Anyway, feedback is welcome. Thank you!

Putters: I like the Classic (Hard) plastic from Dynamic Discs. I also like the P-line plastic of P2s in putts.

Everything else: I like the feel of Gold Line/Fuzion best, but it's not as durable. So overall I like Star plastic best. I like firmer plastics in general, so Champion and most Opto and Z plastics are all okay with me. I don't like the softer stuff like GStar.

Legacy discs gummy pinnacle. Or their stuff pearly pinnacle. Also their Legend and sparkle is the best.

Dynamic Discs prime is really nice cheap baseline. Extra firm and grippy velvety.

MVP soft premium plastic is really great. Matter of fact, some of their plasma was good too.

Discmania made a gummy p line that was awesome.

I'm against most of the majority here. I like a tacky baseline/midgrade plstic for putters, firm baseline/midgrade for my cycle of mids, a Z/Champ type for my OS bookend mid, Champ/Star for my FWs and Star for Distance drivers. Hobestly Innova/Discraft have the best plastics, as Trilogy's seem to beat in too quickly, and I don't have much experience with any other companies.

strangely my favorite lineup of plastic is prodigy. The 400/400g is one of my favorite premium blends, it has grip but also isn't soft. The 300 is the best baseline plastic, it has lots of grip and it decently firm as well. The 350g and 750 blends I used to really enjoy but not anymore because of the extreme firmness and lack of grip. I really think a mix of the 350g and 300 would be the best blend of baseline but I just look for a firmer 300 disc usually.


it is weird to say prodigy has the best of anything.. latitude 64 is pretty close I just haven't experienced their baselines.

Gateway has the best baseline plastic on the market, hands down.

Discraft has the best premium plastics in my opinion (Z, new ESP, bigZ, FLX Z, Titanium, X - not to mention all of the special release stuff, like Glow ESP, Cryztal/FLX, etc) but both jawbreaker and D leave a lot to be desired for anything that isn't a putter. Gateway has the best baseline plastics by far.

Kastaplast K3 ain't chopped liver. I bag Innova, Discraft and MVP and have no issues with any of them. Innova is probably slightly more inconsistent.

I will say the K1 and K3 from Kastaplast is about as good as it gets from my small sample size. The K2 that I've felt up is a bit floppy for my taste.

Kastaplast blends are amazing. Best plastic out in my opinion.
