Default what kind of plastic?

I found some Innova Dragons at the local shop, and they are made out of a plastic that appears to be champion, but to the touch is soft and tacky like Pro or R-Pro. Is this candy pro? I really would like some of my main drivers in this plastic. Not sure how it holds up, but it feels really good.

The plastic that the Dragons are made of does not hold up well at all. Its like a lightweight form of DX.

AFAIK the Dragon is made in it's own plastic with a durability similar to DX. They do that so it floats in water.

R-pro is most similar with its waxy, soapy feel. Durability similar to soap, as well. Now if you want to feel something really odd, try to find a Glo Dragon.

I wonder if they make it float by impregnating DX plastic with microscopic air bubbles, kind of like Ivory soap floats because of the microscopic air bubbles. This could account for the softer, lighter, tacky feel.

It only takes a single stick to slay a Dragon. They must make them outta recycled Crayolas.
