I was just watching a replay of the 2014 USDGC final round and Patrick Brown threw a G line PD off the tee on hole 11. Lol.

I really like my dark blue metal flake Gstar teebird. Flat and durable, flies like a fresh DX.

I'm necro-bumping this thread to say that G*Star has been around FARRRR too long to have such horrible colored plastic.

I'm befuddled by the constant dark, earthy tones that Innova, MVP & Discraft continue to produce. WHO in their right mind is buying this stuff?!?

(Excuse my 4:30 AM Rant)

But but but...then we lose them and buy more.


It's like Kickin Wing in Joe Dirt - sell fireworks (the good stuff!) and own a veterinary practice.

I quite like the yellows, blues, and reds of GStar. Occasionally a nice burst pattern in the plastic will appear making it more worth it.

I try to throw only pink discs for visibility sake.

In GStar I can never find a standard pink disc. They're horrible wine colored metallic. Even the reds are often metallic and darker than I prefer.

I was up with my son sick last night and I not sure why... But I wanted to buy a GStar Teebird and for the life of me I couldn't find anything I'd deem "easy to find"

Some discs are at their best, for me, in G*. Corvette for example.

Agreed. Anyone who hasn't thrown the G* Corvette is missing out on one of the longest drivers available anywhere.

Some G* Katanas are magical as well.

I bought one recently. Had a careerish throw with it in a field. Have not had it work on a course yet.

I've never thrown a GStar disc that didn't fly the same as a Star variant that has been beat-in to the same stability.
