Anything Innova except DX is pretty sturdy. My main field practice area is paved. Star, Pro, and Champ all have survived hundreds of throws with only scuffs and minor dings. A handful of throws with a DX Valk and it already looks like crap.

Unfortunately it’s the only spot I’ve got available when I’m at work (on standby). I throw almost all premium plastic anyway so it’s not a big deal. Maybe it seasoned my Thunderbirds a little quicker but hasn’t touched my Champ Valk other than removing a touch of the flashing.

If you dye a disc using heat, I have found that this helps the disc become more US. Want it to stay stable, after the dye put it in the freezer.

This was a faded out crap disc that "I grind it till I find it". I threw it 320 feet a couple days ago. I usually use it around pavement or disc eating trees.

The Exception is G-Star, that can be only as tough as Pro but then Echo star/soft Star can be like extra stiff Pro.

Nah, GStar and Pro are fine too. The only plastic that’s been a problem is DX.
