So these are just out in their base (millennium) plastic? I'm not a huge fan of that plastic. The Q on the other hand....I love. Think it may be my favorite plastic going...I've had a QOLF for years and its the same it was the day I bought it.

I need these Q Astra's!

Just got my Q Astra and went to the field. Not sure I need it, but it is long. Big S flights, flips flat really nicely. It's pretty fun to throw, as well as being an easy disc to keep nose down and get some air under it. I noticed it lands pretty softly on most throws. The plastic is grippy candy. May keep it for distance shots that have to land and stop.

What are the numbers on this disc? Stable, understable, fade?

I have one in Millennium and one in Sirius plastic. They are good understable drivers. My Sirius is very beat and will easily turn over. The two I have didn't take long to beat to very understable. Now they're available in Quantum plastic... I would assume that they'd be best in Quantum... thinking that they'd keep their original flight characteristics longer.

Sirius Astra has never been made. The pro feels very similar.

The stock q-Astras are amazing. Domey, stable, bombers. It can hold anny or hyzer and do great hyzer flips for distance

Super necro bump.

Are there any negligible differences in Astra runs? I am seeing 1.1 and 1.2 available.

I'm looking to add something in the max D department for my noodly arm, so I am looking at a lighter M Astra, but want to make sure the runs aren't too different. Thanks in advance for the help.

Have you tried a star tern? Theyre pretty nice and available in low weights.

The 1.1 Astra I had was crazy flippy. Like 60 hyzer and still a roller flippy.

Haha have one on the way, it's in the mix. Was thinking of auditioning the Tern/Astra/Unlace.
