I really hope you're right about the firm Star, but I'm not seeing it right now, especially in Star Roc3s. I'm almost at the point of going to Champion plastic in summer, and Star in winter when the cold(er) temps firm it up. GStar may be okay in winter, but I'm not spending any (more) money on GStar, partially as a protest against Star being made more and more like GStar, and less and less like older firm Star plastic.

But why should it matter? If you use/like gummy discs and they fit your game, so what?
I know Doss used to pimp Ti plastic (Buzzz, etc) - not sure if he actually throws it though??

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....
Any facts to back up that claim or more silliness as usual?

Which claim? I saw McBeth on the video throw with an Avery Jenkins Star Destroyer. Watch the tape, see for yourself.

As to the lack of GStar popularity, that was the point of starting the thread... seems pros aren't using GStar, I'm not seeing in use on the course(s), ergo I'm wondering if it really isn't very popular despite Mr. Dunipace and that really bad video trying to tout it as the greatest thing since sliced bread....

You said gstar is not popular. You have nothing to back that other than personal observations with an extremely limited sample size.

The pros don't even factor into the equation. If we were to go by pros, all innova stock would be max weight aviars, rocs, teebirds, firebirds, and destroyers.

Do you think innova's business practices are so poor they would continue to pump out gstar even though it wasn't selling? If gstar isn't making a profit, innova will move on. That doesn't seem to be the case though.

It's not at all hard to find stiffer star plastic right now. You should be able find whatever you need and stock up a bit just in case.

I don't care for gstar as much as champion or stiffer star. Star should be firm btw...

BUT, I do like "fluid" plastic from Dynamic because it is more OS than there various other plastics.

Also, plasma is pretty good. Just a tad more grippy and flexy than normal plastics, but the variance is little.

Anyway, I'd bet gstar sells just fine. It's prettier than Innovas other plastic and feels good when you pick it up in store (until you grip lock it).

Pros don't sell discs, good discs sell themselves and Pros throw good discs. Ya dig?

It can be, yes.

Not all star is as soft as you think it is and many people definitely like gstar.

Maybe the pros don't throw it commonly. Oh well.
