Default Pro Pig vs R-Pro Pig

My favorite disc and most reliable is the Pro Pig. I absolutely love this disc but no longer have any new, fresh, stable ones in my collection. Instead of paying $15-20 for a new one, I was considering the R-Pro pig since they are $11 at my local shop. Any major differences to expect, or are they pretty consistent between the two plastics?

R-Pro is floppier than regular Pro, especially from a few years ago. The grip is similar, though, I guess.


I like Pro Pigs because they're nice and stuff, but still grippy.

R-Pro is also MUCH less durable.

the two R-pro pigs that I own feel like regular pro plastic to me, they are nice and stiff and can take a beating. I have held a few pigs owned by other people that feel like R-pro in every way and seem like they would get bent out of shape on the first tree hit.

anybody else notice this?

I've been putting with R-Pro pigs lately due to wind. Putter is working well for me, however, has anyone noticed a lot of chain outs? Is this due to the more flexible R-Pro plastic instead of Pro?

my r-pro feels maybe a little grippier but mines a lot more flexy and trees equal dings

You should buy some for 15-20 if at all possible. Innova has ONLY produced Pigs in R-Pro for years now. Therefore, when all of the retailers run out of Pro Pigs everyone looking will only be able to find them on the secondary market....at $30+

R-Pro Pigs start out overstable, but quickly beat in. It sounds like that is not what you are seeking.

I also have a pair of super stiff pro-like r-pro pigs. They are awesome, much different/better than the floppy r-pros. They're not particularly easy to find though...

I loved the Pig, still kinda do.. I converted to the Premium Jokeri. I feel like I have a space age amazing plastic next level Hog. I think you'll like it. Haven't looked back since.

the difference between the two is:

one is made out of garbage, and one is made out of pure sex. pro pigs should be very easily found and much cheaper since innova "found" a crate full and 1/2 the retailers have them for sale now.
