I found only one at my local, dg dedicated store (dtw). Ice clear with a silver stamp, 175g jolly launcher on the gummy side of medium with a mild dome. Glow should eventually trickle out.

How do the champion new old mold....ahhh shoot this is sounding like a destroyer/roc/teebird/aviar/innova thread... Why do I love all these molds so much when all they do is change? So many questions... Hoping these throw like new old pearly orcs!

I threw mine a couple of rounds the day I got it and it's going to take some beating in, or a bigger arm than mine, to get more than -.5 turn on the Innova rating system. I generally only carry one distance driver for dual, strong head wind/high hyzer duties and this one will suffice.

Oh, and just a heads up, my gstar x mold Beast, after 2 months of heavy use, already beat into where my pre Barry is after 1.5 years of use.

Seeing that it never freezes here, me thinks that I'm done with gstar unless I hit the lottery.

I recently got a deal? ($8) on a 161g, clear, gummy pre Barry thrown only a handful of times and to my surprise, it held into a 10mph headwind with a healthy fade at 370' of power.

Also, what is it about gummy discs that feels heavier upon release? Not when held in the hand but at the last split second where it counts... some sort of recoil?

My guess it's the disc flexing while it's being pulled away.

I remember when those clear gummy pre-Barrys were going for a lot of money ($50+). The Beast market has died down quite a bit. From what I recall that plastic was very durable.

Found what appears to be the new old mold Best in Dx at my Academy. Just had to buy and go throw. Wow, this is a much better disc for me. On just a couple throws was as long and almost as stable as a VIP Sword I had in the truck. Not sure if I have a spot for a 10 speed driver, but I will continue to test it and will buy in Star or G* if I ever see one.

I'm really looking forward to the more stable mold in star but who knows when they'll get around to running it.

I heard the Star plastic will be obsolete soon.
