1.) What are all of the different types of valks (plastics, runs, ect.)
Sandstrom star, glow champ, and beat dx
2.) Which ones do you throw?
Beat dx for rollers and huge downhill turnovers, sandstorm star when there is no wind for long turnovers instead of my phenom. I also use it for a large turnover over a huge hill at my course
3.) If your a hater, why the hate?
4.) And any other opinions would be welcome.
I love the valk and it was my first disc but I think there are other discs that can do it better (phenom). Still like to bag them because they are fairly consistent

I used a semi-beat DX for turnovers at 7000ft elevation in CO earlier this year. I carry a seasoned star valk for turnovers or hyzerflip lines at sea level. At sea level the DX is an insta-roller.

One of my first drivers ever was a 161g champ valk. It started out straight and then turned into a hyzerflip to turnover machine. My star valk is max weight and will probably never be that understable.

Such easy distance, especially when they develop some turn

I throw it on the steepest Hyzer I can and it just flips for like 500 feet then levels out a tiny bit

I've emailed them about it & there doesn't seem to be a plan to run them again. I'm certain they sold well.

They were flat and held their stability for so long.

That's a shame...

Has anybody throw any of the new stamped Champ Valks?

I like the Glow Champion Valkyries simply due to how they fly, mine is from sometime in 2017 so I can not comment on newer but some other discs the Champion Destroyers have the Blizzard look in the rim but mostly the nearer to the leading edge. Maybe a current run of Champion was made like this for all Champion discs? I know a friends new Destroyer he got in the summer of 2018 is the same way as a few I saw in a store recently.
