I have a nice pink Halo Shryke that is awesome. First Innova disc I’ve bought in awhile.

I would say that the Halo plastic is decidedly overstable! I have 2 halo wraith's and 3 halo destroyers, and for me these are all very overstable. For what it is worth, I usually throw star destroyers (370-395) and have several in varying points of wear. I also play in Oklahoma wind, so these strong fading puppies will get use for sure. Additionally, the first throw of my wraith I was not expecting that type of overstable and it faded hard into a street. The plastic sort of chipped and scrapped. Based off of hitting the street one time, I do not have much excitement of the durability especially for 25 bucks a piece. After I hit some trees, Ill let you know.

Anybody else have their Halos look matte and fingerprinty after a while? I had put one of my Halo Sidewinders aside as a backup in April and decided to hang it today until I need it. Pulled it out of storage, and it looks like what happens when you take something out of the refrigerator b and leave it for 5 minutes. Dull and not at all glossy. The Halo Firebird is doing the same thing.

I wonder if something is happening to the plastic. I'd heard old plastic tends to do this after a number of years, but I just bought these Halos 4 months ago. For reference I have a Swirly S-Line CD2 from 2018 on the wall right next to it, and it's still glossy and shiny.

I have some pro destroyers that do this. Almost have a chalky film to them or something. I can wash them off in the sink with soapy water and they look normal again. Then I stash them away for a couple of months and they do it again.

I think plastic puts off some sort of fumes (for lack of a better description). Ever buy a new vehicle and weeks or months later you get that hazy stuff on the inside of the windshield from the new plastic dash? Same sort of thing with some discs I suppose.

I can't speak for the halo plastic, but all the newer Prodigy I had bought last year did this too. And after only a few months. All were 400 plastic. Maybe the Halo is similar. They look like garbage now.

That's not a good sign for longevity. Most likely it's leaching out some sort of plasticizer additive, eventually it will become brittle and more likely to crack/break.

It's happening to old CE discs, and it happened relatively quickly on some of Legacy discs that I've seen. I picked up an experimental Patriot last year that started doing it after a few months. Repeatedly washing it off will make the problem worse.

Yeah, "chalky film" is a good way to describe it. Mine didn't come off with soap and water, but I didn't scrub at it very hard.

Yeah the CE plastic getting brittle was the first thing I thought of when I saw this. This sat in a dark area at room temperature, so it's not like it should have experienced issues from light or heat. Gotta say I'm concerned.
