If it doesn't have BPA in it, I won't throw it, or eat off it.

After 7 years of playing, I’ve just recently discovered the benefits of cheap plastic. The grip is better in wet conditions, absorbs tree hits better, and sits quickly after landing. I am now focusing on molds that give me the option of purchasing both cheap and premium plastics. I think this is worth it for the ground action alone, but I initially did it for the grip. The pacific northwest is wet for all but about 3 months out of the year. Even on a nice dry day, the morning dew is heavy. I am surprised at how few players I see using the cheap stuff for anyting other than putters.

Putters are the only mold for which I've almost exclusively used base/pro plastics. I've never thought of my bag broken down by plastic type so I took shot:

9 Pro/DX (1 fairway, 3 mid, 5 putter)
8 Champ (5 fairway, 2 mid, 1 putter)
6 Star (3 driver, 3 fairway)

I'd prefer using molds that share pieces, different plastics can be chosen for a certain flight characteristics or conditions.

"How much do you attempt to acquire the same type plastic for the sake of the feel, and consistent release, etc. "


Another "Not at all" vote here. While I like base plastic, some of the courses I play will chew it up in short order. With that in mind I carry base and premium versions of my favorite discs.

I haven’t gone with a single type of plastic, but I have ruled out Z and Champion for backhands. I have dry hands and just get inconsistent releases with them. Big Z seems to be ok for me, though. Most of my discs are either Star, Gold Line, ESP, Z-Flx or Ti.

Agree about the Champion and Z for sure. Very durable, but not much else I like about them, especially with so many other options.

Good idea. In my bag now:

7 TI/ESP/GoldLine/Star/BigZ (4 driver, 1 control, 2 mid)
3 TI-Flx/ESP-Flx (1 driver, 1 fairway, 1 mid)
3 Z (2 driver, 1 app/putt)
2 Base (2 app/putt)

Flex is almost it's own category. Grip is so different from anything else.
