Default Crystal flx plastic

I just seen a crystal flx nuke on eBay. Is this plastic like a flexy gummy grippy elite Z or what? Never heard of it before

I have a buzzz and a nuke in crystal flx. I haven't had a flexy gummy grippy elite z, but I have had a few flx and crystal discs.

the crystal flx nuke is just a bit too floppy for me to throw for real distance, I'm saving it for winter to see if this changes. I'm much more comfortable ripping into esp nukes.

I find that my crystal flx buzzz is more stable than regular crystal, but I can definitely throw it farther than my flx buzzz.

I have a Cryztal FLX Zone, and it is beautiful. It has a sort of shimmer to it. Also feels nice.

Buddy just bought me a Crystal FLX Zone as a gift (haven't received it yet). I don't have any experience with Crystal or FLX, let alone the blend...
From what i know, Crystal is quite stiff, but FLX is gummy and floppy.... Anyone have feedback on this plastic these days? Anyone throwing Zones in this plastic?
I'm curious how it compares to my Z Zone... Overstable and lots of skip.

Likely but not guaranteed to be equally overstable or more due to shape. Slightly less glide and skip.

Cryztal FLX plastic is usually super gummy. I have a cryztal FLX Nuke, and its almost floppy. Not a good flier either. Super flat, glideless, and VERY overstable. Probably the most overstable Nuke I've ever seen.

Z FLX plastic isn't my favorite stuff. Too overstable and floppy. It usually doesn't glide well.
