Default From new to beat in, that is the question!

I started thinking back about all the discs I've had and which one disc changed it's flight characteristics the most from being new to being beat in.

For me, it was a 175g Champion Valk custom dye job. When I bought that disc, no matter how hard I threw it, I could not turn it over.

Now, I have to release it almost perpendicular to the ground to keep it from turning over. If I release it flat to the ground--POOF- instant roller!

How about you?

I agree that there is a big change with valks. I've owned the disc in DX, Star, and champ and same thing happens with each of them. I think there is just too little high speed stability. Helps you get more distance out of it when new...but a few months later ruins the disc. I'm trying an Orc now to see if it is better in this aspect.

The old school 2nd run CE were very overstable then a couple wacks of a tree and byebye. I have never seen CE palstic do that except of valks and the late runs of that CE crap.

Same story for me with a Pro Wraith that beat in.

Star xcaliber, when I got it, I could barely throw it straight RHFH. Now, if I ever dig it out and throw it, I can angle it almost straight down and it'll still want to roll... Stupid star plastic, breaks in past the point of no return with just a few hits of trees...

I have a DX Wraith that used to give me a nice long hyzer, now it flies almost dead straight, with a little hook at the end that gives me a nice skip.

Champ Wraith, was freaking sweeter than candy when I first bought it, now I have to put some serious hyzer and flip it if I'm throwing forehand. It got taken out of the bag when I turned it over and almost hit a kid in the head about 300' away.

I have a pro D Buzzz that is really beat up, rim is all wavy and such. It went from being a straight flier with a slight end fade to a disc that turns over hard.

I also have an Elite X Predator that when new was clearly overstable and now that its worn in it flies real straight with a later, less pronounced fade.
