The fastest way I've found to break a disc in is to throw rollers with it.

I was thinking that, too. I use a 167 and a 170 and it makes a slight difference, enough to notice.

The DX version supposedly has alot of glide...it does for Teebirds.

DX and pro will break in faster, fly more understable (after a little wear) and have more glide, while star and champ will stay more overstable, hold their characteristics longer, and usually have a little less glide.

The champion edition is is stable but it is a good stable, it is stable but you still have control over the disk. The champion is so stable I will not even thrwo it unless it is windy, then it helps me get more distance but I don't have a lot of control over it. My Glo disk is more stable than a new star valk. I even think that certain color valks are differant. A orange silver stamp christian sandstrom Star valk at 175 is a straight flyer out of the box, a yellow one a little understable out of the box, a blue one a stable flyer with a noticable fade at the end of its flight.

Of course I am just a drunk guy talking nonesense!!

well unless you have an awesome arm I'm not surprised that the 175g is a strait flyer. What weight is the yellow one you speak of? And what about the blue one too?

They are all 175, Sorry i really have stuck with the heavyweight. I am probably exaggerating a little, the yellow 175 star will still need time to break in. Depending on how far you are throwing though. If you throw 400 it would be understable right out of the box, 300 it would go straight with a fade at the end 250 stable sharp left fade.

However when broken in it would be a roller for a 400ft thrower
right turner for a 320 foot thrower and straight as hell for a 275-290 foot thrower.
