For me it's the UltraStar.
Although the people I play with aren't surprised to see it since it sticks out of every single DG bag on the market.
Those things are huge compared to dg discs.

Well, after a few months of throwing my champ Polecat, I’ve decided to go back to the dx one. Just doesnt fly like the dx does. Not horrible, but just prefer the dx plastic I guess.
Also, a friend just gave me a xt polecat so I’ll be chucking that one to see how it compares to the dx plastic

I have been very curious about the XT. I like the flight of DX, but I can't find any DX Polecats that are not waxy.

I’ve got a stack of pfn dx polecats. So I’ve never really looked at the new dx ones. To me, The xt plastic feels similar to the old dx plastic. But I don’t have my dx with me to compare the two at the moment...

FYI... I picked up a new embossed DX Polecat and Birdie (both Daphne blue) and they feel just a touch softer than my others, almost like a touch of rubber in the mix (not waxy at all). They are nowhere near the softness of XT. They feel really nice with a little bit of flex. I have yet to throw them.

If the XT plastic is the good stuff like the XT in the Bullfrog, I'd be very interested in trying an XT Polecat.

I just sold my XT Polecats. I liked them, they flew a bit like DX. Maybe a hair more fade and a hair less high speed stability. I have never felt like I needed more durability out of my lids so I never stopped throwing my DX.

No lids do not need all the durability due to the flat surface, just not floppy in the plastic or the disc will not fly right.
