It's always been the roc for me. I've hated them forever and will continue to do so. I think it's a great disc but I cannot throw it to save my life. Now that I can't deal with beaded discs it's even worse. Thankfully there are so many great beadless mids.

In a close second would be the Beast. Since the Beast-L became the standard I think it's a pile of garbage and it's easily still one of the most popular molds in sales (greatly influenced by it's inclusion in the starter sets I'm sure).


I agree. I loved the Beast X, but I hate the Beast L. They don't feel like remotely the same disc. Beast L is weird and clunky.

Still wildly popular. I find them all over the place. I also dislike the SL. For the same reasons. Weird feel and not a very good flight.

Of course this was plastic from when Dynamic Disc was having trouble keeping its discs stocked in the warehouse, before they made the bigger warehouse they use today.

The blends are not different between Trilogy. There will be variation from run to run but the plastics are not meant to be different, it's not intentional. They aren't "lower quality" variants.

I've personally seen many different versions of VIP come out over the years when I threw Swords.

You're just completely wrong on this. And you have no facts to back it up as usual. Your personal preference does not mean there is some hidden truth to the differences that exist. They are just natural variation and your making them into something that doesn't exist.

Oh and opaque Z was the BEST plastic discraft ever put out alongside the pearly runs from 2005-2007. First run buzzz....

Anyway I'm not attacking your opinion about the Z, you can prefer another run, that's fine we can disagree.

So you've held an Emac Truth, Giant and XXX once in your life and determined that the Truth was molded with an inferior plastic?

Well, I can't find any flaws in that logic.

Wizard - I don't hate it, but i never clicked with it, and it wasn't for a lack of trying. Just too brickish, i.e. not glidey enough for me.

Firebird, Destroyer - people love 'em and they sell out the wazoo, but they don't work well for me because of their overstability.

5'6" -5'8" pushing 60 would be my guess and that explains a lot.

I am not surprised by the ROC being on here a bunch, I get that.

The Aviar does a bit, at least for those who can't use the 3 types Big Bead, Aviar P&A or Classic Grid for a driving putter. I can do driving putter with P&A and Classic Grid preferring Classic Grid though there are a bunch of other putters/slow putter shaped midrange that do this driving putter job way better then an Aviar can as average to deep rim putters to me tend to be slow for a driving putter.

I know having tried a DX P&A for a driving putter before my dad made the disc feel floppier then special run Soft putters by leaving his disc in his car during the summer.
