Yep, Star is not quite a blend of Pro and Champion rather a more durable Pro as I have in last few years picked up a stiff Driver Pro disc that felt the way a softer run of Star plastic is. Star could be mostly Pro with a tad bit of Champion as little as needed to make a harder durable version of Pro.

I have an old Innova Catalog (think 10 plus years old) and it lists Star Plastic as mix of Champion and Pro.

It also lists the Destroyer as 4 Fade, but that's another story.

And Echostar has always been regrind plastic.

Bit more overstable according to Eagle, and the flight actually reminds me of the Explorer by Lat 64.

I heard that, but was just speculating. It looks really similar to a River Pro, from the bits of the rim I've seen. Maybe it will be an easier 2nd Run FD replacement.
