Default Are gummier discs more OS?

Just curious if this is typically true or not...

I have a gummy patriot, ppd, escape and truth that are all more OS than there champ/star counterparts.

(Since it's a question, I'll add the poll)

I'm not sure if they are more OS or not. I do know that gummy premium plastic seems to maintain its original stability forever, so it will resist any change in HSS. This makes it seem more OS because its not developing the mellower HSS you normally expect from a beat driver. Brand new tho? I have no idea.

Brand new star valkyrie and a brand new G* Valkyrie, yes.
New GL River vs. new Front River, about the same stability.
Champ Leopard vs. G* Leopard, no.
P, S, C-PD vs. G* PD, nope.


Champ Orc vs. gummy champ orc (the good ones), YUP

I have had se gummier discs that are far more OS and others that seemed a little less OS.

I like the feel of gummy ones, but who knows really?

I think it depends on how the discs mold up. Some gummy blends can mold up puddled, while others will poptop.

If molding up gummy also causes it to mold up with a higher parting line, then yes.
