I will say, living in MI and having thrown trilogy a few years ago, that the plastic cosmetically gets best up really quickly, but doesn't break in as fast as it suggests. Of course, it's a tree to tree basis, but that was my experience. My "problem" with the plastic is that it's too soft and tacky. They're lucid/opto/vip stuck to my hand a little too much in the summer. It was great in the fall/winter though!

Comet: I like how it flies, I hate how it feels in my hand, and even more so after it rips the skin off my knuckle with its razor sharp bead.

Teebird and TL (I just can't... can't throw these discs somehow)
All 2-part MVP discs (can't grip them other than Electron/Fission)
Wasp - yeah seems like DC (along with pretty much every other manufacturer) has a problem sometimes with the parting line. When it's bad it's terrible, like, you've got this sharp ledge jutting out beyond the apparently misaligned mold piece. Doesn't happen all the time - some Wasps are perfectly clean around the PLH - but some are pretty nasty.

A little (a lot) of elbow grease and a sanding block takes care of it, but I would understand someone preferring to just pass.

I think we need to see pictures of things "too beat" after 4 or 5 rounds. I honestly like the Trilogy plastic, but the Pure is one of the very few Trilogy molds that has ever interested me.

I did that sanding once for a Q Sentinel and I don't really want to do that kind of sanding again. The Wasp I will just use for comparison photographs and then put it back in a box. It's the only one I own.

I avoided Discraft for several years after encountering said flashing on multiple molds and having a Comet literally melt in my car. I left it in the front seat in the middle of summer, went and played a round - direct sun. I got back in my car and it had literally melted and fused to the floormat. This was one of those Saturn stamped old ones, from the late 90s. I think it was Tournament Pro plastic. But yeah, a couple bad experiences steered me away from them (plus back then they had a lot of not so good molds).

Today: I throw multiple Discraft molds in multiple plastics. But I still won't throw a Comet. I bought a MJ Comet just to support MJ. Any other pro, no sale.

At least you are on the good side... that's as close to a political statement I ever plan on making outside the water cooler.

Then the Discraft/DGA baseline must look the same way.
