I did my long awaited trade in.

orange DX is a 171g Valkyrie
Yellow 175g star eagle
Purplish 172g Plasma Tesla

As the leaves fall, the tesla replaces my thunderbird in my primary distance thrower spot. Come spring, the valkrie gets it.

I should get a medal or something. I went to the local shop to purchase a fresh Raider, and walked out with one Lucid Raider. Not four or five, ONE. And didn't buy anything else. Pretty sure I've never done that before.

I didn’t purchase it, but I just won a sweet test flight Malta!

Part of me wants to throw it, but I know I should just sell it. WWYD?

Test flight Malta: it's not a very fun answer, but I would throw it in a box for 5-10 years in a plastic bag, then sell for $200

I would definitely put it in a collectors bag, and wait 3-5 years or more, and see what they're going for. Every one of the new P-McB discs have been flying off the shelves, and the Test Flight Runs will most certainly be collectors items down the road, especially as the landscape of the sport continues to change, and we see more "player brand" type discs come into production.

Now I am only getting the Star Shark discs since Innova has currently, possibly permanently stopped making the Star Shark or ran out of old discs. If I like the mistake almost G-Star Shark and it is good but I want a disc without the dent in the rim, I will get a production G-Star Shark for the replacement of my Pro Shark as discs past 167 grams are not to be found in the X-Out Pro Shark that Innova Factory store sells.
I got my new Star Shark and it is fine, not the stiff Star I like but the almost Echo Star like plastic, not as floppy as the red almost G-Star so this disc will work the way a regular Star Shark works for me.

Forgot to say the disc is yellow and purple Innova stamp with a white for the top, colored in the Star to be purple like bottom. I like the colors due to being LA Lakers colors.
