Question Z Challenger vs Crystal Z Challenger

Just happened to see a Limited Edition Z Challenger on a website today, and was just curious whats the diffrence(s) between the two. I have a crystal Z and crystal FLX, so Im just naturally curious.

The club discs we just received are cryztal z, not cryztal flx. They are pretty stiff.

From what I remember when I was searching, the few z runs are true challanger mold. The cryztal is a sligghtly moddified mold.

Why would they change the mold to run a different plastic?

Crystal is just Crystal CLEAR Z plastic

Z is see through yet not completely clear with a slight fog to it..

Thats the only real difference is the plastic itself.

Why did innova make the tl when ce teebirds released? Why is the magnet different now from before? Why didn't they just stick with wasps tooling on buzzzs? Why did the pred change molds? Why did beasts become less stable when the orc came out?

Manufacturers monkey around with stuff all the time. And cryztal z is not just clear z. I have clear z discs that are Ridged just like z plastic while cryztal tends to have a gummyness to it. Wouldn't colored cryztal discs then just be regular z discs? It a unique blend they use just for cryztal, not saying it doesn't have some of the same make up but its not just z.

Do they fly the same?
From my experice this is a list of stability of the challengers I have used: Stable to understable
Flx
Crystal Flx & less glide
Soft X
Crystal
