When you know what it is , it takes the mystery out of it, so its like a girl you already ****ed, and its no longer " magical" or "special" any more.
This is truth. The other reason that discs become pearly is because they are not properly mixed when being injected. So all those discs people that spend super amounts of money on because they are 'pearly' are being taken advantage of.

Sometimes I wonder if CE is really that much nicer, or if people just say that it is out of nostalgic purposes.
This is true. Is CE durable? Sure. Is it the most durable plastic out there? No. But the time frame when it was in production it most certainly was. (2001-2004(?))

Don't get me wrong, I like the way it feels, I just think there are better plastic blends widely available now.

Booter is correct, I have seen new Innova discs lately that are pearly and I have no interest in them. Companies plastic blends change pretty often and Innova plastic from that time was really good.
