Usually love the Pro plastic from Innova but had a couple of floppy ones lately. Snagged a nice new run of the Pro Teebird and it was firm, little bit slick but that will go away with some use. Then picked up a Leopard and Thunderbird online and they both arrived feeling floppy, like GStar floppy with decent grip. Almost feels like a completely different plastic. Bit disappointing as I like the firmness of most Pro plastic runs. The Teebird plastic is exactly what I expected, the other two were nothing like my previous Pro Leos/Valks.

I agree, I picked up this summer a Pro Destroyer more for the logo with name of the course on it, no intention of throwing but it was like as floppy as some R-Pro gets. Also I had got recently a Star Shark that ended up almost G-Star in flex but with the Star grip not the grip G-Star can have. They over cooked both discs, Pro and the Star disc to the point they are floppy. I think that was a previous problem with plastics mostly Pro in the last few runs before the most recent few runs though the Star Shark has always had problems to the point most discs should be F2, Factory Second.

I had the same experience with two Pro Leopards I got a few weeks ago. One was stiff and slick, and the other was almost G* soft but with great grip.

Like you said, mine feel like two completely different plastics.

Maybe I'm in the minority, probably am, but I appreciate the more understated stamps. I don't need giant pictures of birds, robots, and fish on my discs.

I end up wiping a lot of stamps as it is. My favorites are the stock Pro plastic stamps and even those I frequently wipe everything except "Pro Leopard" or whatever model disc it happens to be.

I always liked the very clean, minimalist stamps of the stock Star molds. The XT stamps aren't too bad, either.

Has anyone heard anything about the Croc? Based off the numbers on the approved disc list, it seems so close to a gator/caiman.

Previous iteration of the Champ plastic was good too. New one isn't horrible but I still prefer the previous style.

I guess to me the old school DX creature stamps are a nostalgia trip back to my teens. Pre-disc golf internet, going to the sports store and picking discs by a combination of the poster-size flight charts and what looked cool.
