Default Echostar

Thinking of investing some money in these kinds of discs. Most of my favorite innova molds are now made in this kind of plastic. What benefits do you think it provides bs. the regular star plastic innova runs, and also, is there any official info on the echostar program?

I think the consensus is that they are more stable the standard star versions of the same disc.

all righty, thats good. what about grip wise, what does it feel like in relation to a star disc, and also do you think it's worth it?

i think they are worth it, i like the echo discs a lot better than regular star plastic
as far as their stability, i can throw an echo star wraith a lot straighter than i can a normal star wraith
i also get the satisfaction of helping out the environment =D

They found a way to charge more for discs made of regrind.

I really like my E* Wraith. They seem to fly a bit straight out of the box and stay that way for awhile. The E* Teebird is nice Stable Mabel at first and beats in nicely to a straight driver with some mon back on it. IMO the E* Boss is super stupid stable and I throw 400'. I really don't like these at all. Unless you have a lot and I mean a lot of head wind or have a cannon arm I wouldn't recommend them.
The plastic is grippier/gummier then normal star runs.

Really? I think mine are more understable than regular Champ Bosses. Right out of the box I could already flex them whereas it took me a couple months to get my Champ Boss to the same flight pattern. They're the only thing I have in Echo plastic that I throw right now so I can't really comment on any other molds.

From what I have experienced, the echo destroyer is very overstable, and the echo boss is a different more understable mold. HIGHLY recommend the Boss. worth every penny. You have to have the arm to throw, but the echo boss is like a super wraith with boss speed, unlike the meathook star and champion versions. It is more stable than the pro version, so you can say it is the perfect design for a high speed disc.

flatter ones are less stable, and domie are more stable.
