Default Any pros throwing GStar plastic?

Searched but didn't find this info in other threads. Do any pros, especially top level players, throw GStar plastic? Especially in the heat of summer?

Very few pros use "gummy" discs period, across all manufacturers.

But why should it matter? If you use/like gummy discs and they fit your game, so what?

My point was to emphasize the lack of popularity of GStar plastic, towards a larger point that a return of firm Star plastic would be most very welcome by a LOT of disc golfers. That's a HINT in Innova's direction..

P.S. To whoever mentioned McBeth, I noted at HOFC he was using an Avery Star Destroyer, which I think is firmer than the recent stuff....

O really? Cause I see that stuff everywhere.

Innova's (and any manufacturer's) market is much bigger than just the pro game.

I see it on the shelves in the stores. Not on the courses so much...

not true. if anything the recent run of avery's or even bottom stamps can vary from firm to very g-star like gummy.

mcbeth throws stock stuff, hell he even throws F2 misprints. My guess is that he might have a newer softer star destroyer in there too (because his bag contents is in constant flux).

Maybe you should pick some up, the Firebirds are great in Gstar.

McBeth doesn't strike me as being particularly picky about stuff. Get's a disc, throws it, figures it out and bags it. Easy.
