anyone that has experience with the older runs, do the plastic blends feel the same as their predecessors? i really love frontline x more than g star, i really hope they didn't switch over.

Given that Big Jerm said in his post comments "Frontline X is GStar", it would seem that that have.

So I have some old Star plastic that is just as gummy as the same mold in Gstar. I am sure Frontline-X is probably like that. It is all just slight tweaks in the plastic anyway. And just like every other blend, it was going to change over time. That is just the nature of injection molding on this small scale on which disc golf manufacturers operate. Plus Gstar comes out stiffer on putters and mids because the rims are not as wide but typically beefier, so it does not allow for as much flex as in a wider but thin rimmed driver.

I second this, the old frontline plastic is way nicer than g*.. its especially nice for cold weather rounds. I'll be able to compare the 2 plastics on Monday but as of now, I've been told by several sources that Frontine-x is now G*. Bummer.

Have many of you got your orders in yet? I didn't get any tracking info so I have no idea if mine even shipped yet, or if it did when it will be arriving.

Got my order, pretty bummed. Ordered 2 blue recon and 2 blue frontline x. The frontlines are teal at best, most would call them green. All of the stamps had terrible drop out, the lettering wasn't cut through the foil in a lot of places.

I'm pretty forgiving, but with tax and the insane shipping this was a $100 order for 4 discs. I'd say that means the standard is a bit higher to deliver.

I think you can get a refund on the shipping

Just noticed I didn't get tracking either. Kinda lame in 2017.

Any one who ordered blue front line is getting a teal color. Sounds like the inventory choices were loaded onto their website before the order arrived and teal is what the blue was supposed to be.
