It's really bad. Probably why their discs break in more differently than most others. Really frustrating because they make some really great molds.

Plastic today is great, everyone is crazy. In 2005 everyone was talking about how much that new pearly 11x stuff sucks compared to the good old 10x, and the 9x was even better. The reality is that there are a lot more discs produced today so there’s more inconsistency but also more selection. Some of the newer premium plastics are just as good, or better than anything that used to be around.

Strongly disagree. What people were saying when pearly came out doesn't matter. We now have had the benefit of tome to decide. Old pearly champ is way way way more durable than Jolly Launcher. I have JL discs beat in in one summer vs pearly discs that last years. Also 2 JL discs got splinters in them! I have never seen that from old champ!

Jolt you apparently don't get the same scary news in Sweden that we do. In the past couple of years they issue recalls for toys coming out of China that contain lead and all kinds of nasty stuff.

I love the jolly launcher plastic by Innova over the last few years. The stuff that is very clear, has vivid colors, and is fairly stiff for champion plastic. I find that the discs molded in that plastic have very true flight characteristics and are durable.

My LEAST favorite newish plastic is the opaque champion with air bubbles in it. That stuff feels like taffy, has no durability, and flies like crap.

thats interesting i never considered that

i used to throw saints and rivers back in the day but nothing recent that plastic used to be long lasting (opto)

but once the flashing is gone i bet they lose stability maybe ill have to ask more of my trilogy folks in my area if they noticed a difference once the flashing is gone

1. JL isn’t the only plastic that Innova makes
2. Innova isn’t the only disc company

Star is blebded with champ so it is directly affected. I never menrioned other disc companies or commented that their plastocs were less durable. And dx and pro vary so much run to run vs champ and star they are not really worth mentioning.
