One of my newest discs is a Star Starfire (regular, not X) and I am digging it a lot as on overstable driver. Still needs some stability beat out of it but flies nicely with a good fade

Star Star, as I'm calling him. Better than that Champion Firebird I had... that thing was a brick!

edit: Oh yea I guess I wanted to weigh in on flight numbers. They are helpful to find what you're looking for but of course plastic will affect the disc's flight as well. They're a nice sentiment, though.

The Star, Champ and DX Starfire are the X mold. The Pro Starfire is the L mold.

Flight numbers are a useful tool for me. Granted they are only a guide and each disc is a law onto itself. When picking through a rack I can pick the plastic and dome I like while at least having an idea of it's intended flight.

Nothing worse than going into a shop and seeing a wall of discs, no chart, no catalog and no idea what the disc is beyond it's rim type. I've bought my last mystery disc!

As an example, I recently went into a shop out of town that had a nice selection of MVP and Prodigy, no charts to peruse, no available catalog and no flight numbers. (I did buy a PA3 on a whim though.) It's disappointing to have such a selection and no guide, I'll do some research before I go again though.

As I have gained more experience, I know what I like and with research I have a list of discs I might like to try, but I will no longer buy mystery discs.
