Default Millenium Astra?

Is the Millenium Astra the same as the prototype Innova XB from last year?

God I hope not. From the dimensions it looks to be similar to a DD. Maybe with a little more bead.

I'm pretty pumped though. I've always been a lover of Millennium plastic.

No, I think it's supposed to be a wide-rimmed distance driver like the gajillion being put out by Innova.

I did mean Millennium plastic. Millennium plastic predates Innova pro, not the other way around. In 2000 I was going to the store to get a new Cheetah and saw a JLS, felt so good I had to get it. Love ever since.

i dont think he understands that by millennium plastic youre referring to "pro" plastic, not the brand.
but also, millennium's plastic are different from innovas. they have a slightly different blend. ever notice how the sirius plastic feels a lil 'drier' than standard star? or how Q has a lil less shine but a tad more tackiness? and current millennium feels more like pro of 4-5 yrs ago?
now discmania on the otherhand feels exactly like innova, except discmania discs have no glide.

Yep, and Millennium's base plastic is more tacky where Innova Pro is more grainy. Base Millennium plastic is like a mix of Pro durability and firmness (not counting Omega SS) with the feel of R Pro. There is no better plastic on hot and humid days.

That of course is all my opinion. YMMV.
