I hope so. In the word(s) of Charles Barkley, that proto blend is 'turrible'.

I'm not sure why Discraft called these "stock". At $19.99 they are priced like a "First Run" or "Tour Series" disc.

They didn't tweak the mold, but maybe the plastic tweaks changed the stability. When I compared my proto Luna with the Envy I found the Luna has the same flight with slightly more glide. Luna at 3|4|0|2 compared with 3|3|0|2 for Envy made sense.

Found the Luna discussion in the Foundation Disc Golf video. Paul said the stock Luna actually has more glide and is a "hair" more overstable.

I find some of DC's new flight #'s to be really off. 5|3|0|2 is not how Wasps fly. 5|5|0|2 is accurate.

The proto I have is nowhere close to a 3 fade. Definitely closer to a premium Roach than an Envy, imo.

So glad I prefer the Roach if they're selling the production run Luna for $20.

I guess they'll have to rely on someone besides me to pay him. I already have enough Buzzzsss and Zones and even several Undertakers (first run Z). I don't throw Forces or Destroyers and likely won't even test a Kong.

Discraft is trying to set a lousy precedent with this mid grade plastic pricing and I hope it backfires. Innova tour series pro plastic is high enough for mid grade plastic. And yes, sight unseen I'll say the new Luna blend will be mid grade, no matter how they want to spin it.
