Are these comparable to CE JLS or other runs??
This plastic looks like the old gummy "Pro" plastic that was a version of CE. My dad has a Teebird or Thunderbird in that "Pro" CE plastic he found on our local course in 2004 and uses. It had no info in the disc back in the 2000's when the disc was found, just a first name in it and the weight of disc is either 172 grams or 173 grams as it is hard to tell. We said 172 and marked the CE up as such. oldest disc I have that is a plastic like the "Pro" CE is a gummy Champion a 4x JK Valkyrie that was super opaque when I first got it. I also have one other older disc but that is early Pro D X-Express from the 2001 Canandaigua Amateur or Can-Am as it says on the disc.

The Luster that I received is a nice run but not as stable as the CE or big letter QJs. The wing height is slightly lower than all my early run QJs. The flight is closer to a Leopard than it is to a Teebird.

I ordered two more and asked Wade at discgolfcenter to send me the two with the highest wing height. I ended up getting an orange and a yellow, both max weight. The plastic is clear candy plastic that feels similar to my bagged/unthrown big letter QJ. I threw the orange yesterday and it has the same early run flight... similar to a seasoned Teebird.

They aren’t quite as flat as my big letter QJs but I am excited that there are some new run QJs out there with the early run flight. I hate spending $25-$30 on 15-20 year old plastic.
