Because they are opaque? Or semi-soft? What makes it "Champion" plastic, you know, by your standards?

Thanks for the pic. Now I need to get one.

Hopefully they release enough to keep from being a constant click war. Last year they seemed to be around for a while. They are great throwers and it is a shame they probably got picked up by Facebook flippers.

I have a feeling these are going to be tough to get. Facebook loves the sextons.

New redesign is ok. I like it. I also liked the other design as well. Does it almost look like it says Innova Dick tho?

Wish I could have gotten a new one of these to pair with my seasoned one from last batch.

They were absolutely Star plastic last year. Semi-soft, flexible and tacky. Hard to put into words but when a disc is in your hands you know the difference between Star/Champion and Z/ESP. Very noticeable.

Yeah, it's very easy to tell the difference. I don't like false advertising. Just call it the Star Sexton Firebird and stop messing with the people.

Um. There's been plenty of soft, opaque "Champion" over the years. Sexton birds feel awfully close to Candy Pro Firebirds, 11x stuff, First Run Quantum Orions or second run JLS. Or Sanny Sentinel Quantum. And I've got awfully stiff PFN Star stuff too. It's all continuum, not this or that. But you're right that they ain't JL, and in my book that's great.

Isn't basically all the color glow that type of feel?

Yeah. I'm not a plastics expert, so I don't really know what's going on.

Feels and beats up like star.

All the older plastics it's being compared to haven't been made by innova recently. Not sure what that means.
