Almost every mold I have in my bag has a DX version. Younger/newer players hear all about the premium plastic and think to throw that makes them a better or more serious golfer. It doesn't.

On the topic of DX teebirds, I usually throw them until they are too beat for use (the hyper flip ones tend to stack up after a couple years). After that I flatten them. I boil the disc and put a perfectly flat cast iron skillet on top. A flattened DX bird flies more OS than a new DX bird, but won't break in as nicely. Basically extends the life of the disc by another couple hundred throws.

Yeah I was under that moronic impression that DX plastic isn't as good since it's base, now I have a bag full of it, but mainly rocs and teebirds

Now go get DX versions of your max d driver. DX Destroyers bomb. DX Orcs are criminally underrated. Unfortunately DX Wraiths suck...

One of my favorite things to do is invite over new guys to flip through "the stash." They always come in thinking I'm sitting on a bunch of CE Firebirds, Nightshift Orcs and PFN Star Destroyers. About 1/3 of the way through I'll hear the anguished wail of "ALL THIS **** IS DX!" Yes, yes it is.

Has anybody purchased this year's Nybo Splatter Star Teebird yet? How are they compared to last year's unfortunately Shimmer Star but wonderfully flying run?

Also, heck yes DX is awesome. If you throw anything under speed 9 you're doing yourself a disservice for not throwing the DX version of the disc. Especially DX Banshees, Rocs, and Teebirds.
