Default Echo Star XB

What is this disc? How does it fly? How does the rim feel?

First I have heard of it. Makes me wonder if it could be a mold that ended up being a DiscMania disc. My S-DD has Star AW written on the bottom of it.

As stated on http://www.herodiscusa.com/experimen...-material.html

Attention All Disc Collectors.

Hero Disc USA announces a limited and collectible release:

'The Innova Experimental 'XB' Test Disc'

The XB features a unique flight plate design. The idea was to create a design that among other things was geared towards lighter and faster discs. The original design mindset was to augment Japan Open Class (152g ~ 159.9g) with 'XB' mold characteristics. Innova planned on releasing the design but decided to take a new direction.

The XB was designed in accordance to PDGA standards.

The XB will not be submitted to the PDGA.

The XB is not legal for play in PDGA sanctioned events.

The XB is intended for collectors' purposes only.

Various abbreviations and letter codes are written on the bottom of the discs.

All discs are sold as is. All sales are final.

The XB was made in three plastic classes; Pro, Champion and Echo Star.

Each disc will be numbered within its respective plastic class.

There were at least 2 different molds sold by Hero Disc as the "XB". One had a wider rim than the other, and they were marked on bottom with a bunch of different markings (SW and V, among others). They are easy to tell apart from a regular Innova disc, primarily because they have the fastback like top. I have heard varying flight reports on these, so I think it really depends on the weight and plastic type (also power of person throwing obviously) as is typical with any disc.
