Question Star Beast or Champ Beast

Just wondering which plastic is the best for the disc. Borrowed my dad's champ which has been worn in and I can throw it really well. I'm wanting to get one for myself and just wondering what opinions are on the plastics for a Beast are. Thanks!

Just wondering about the stability. I've found champs start out more overstable then the numbers sometimes say, and was curious if the star are less likely to have that feature.

The same is true with Champ Beasts vs Star Beasts. The Star is longer and easier to flip when new and the Champ breaks in to be a little less stable than a fresh Star. Some more recent runs of Champ have been more stable, but not overstable. They make great accurate distance drivers and can handle mild winds.

You will get more use out of the Champ through its life than the Star, but both discs have their purpose. A good idea would be to get a Star and learn it for a few weeks. If you like it get a a Champ too. A broken in Star and newer Champ Beast can cover a lot of distance lines.

Thanks! Looks like I'll go with Star first. I'm going to try and get it in different plastics over time.

I know this is an old thread. But with the original Beast mood back, has anybody had a chance to compare these two plastics?

To my knowledge, there still has not been a production run of the original mold beast in star plastic. I have the only one that I know to exist and it came from DD's collection, came around the same time as the SB Tulsa Orcs.

Its about the same at first, Star will be a little softer and wear in nicely (sooner than champ) Champion is usually stable at first and takes a long time to work in. I like Stars for most drivers, I have a Star Beast and it feels great after several years of use, has more turn now of course but a great disc. I'd say start with Star and if you want a firmer more stable/overstable flight get a champ

Interesting, so the Star Beasts that we're seeing at stores are still the interim mold? I know there are GStar Beasts of the original mold. Can you comment on those?

Thanks.
