Default Type plastic you throw

Is it just my OCD, or is there something to me wanting to unify my plastic. How much do you attempt to acquire the same type plastic for the sake of the feel, and consistent release, etc. Just wondering...

Not at all. If you go through my bag you'll find and interesting assortment of plastic. The assortment will change with the seasons, but it will always be an assortment.

Thanks tylerc, I guess my muscle memory needs to adapt to the differences -- May even cause another brain cell connection. BTW, are you in Charlotte? (49ers logo)

I use different types of plastic for different weather conditions mostly.

No, I use many. I tried a all Champion/Opto style bag a while ago, but many disc are better in other plastics.

I like Stags a lot for example, but mostly the TP ones. Some of the VIP fly a different line.

Or some molds like the Firebird, I like multiple plastics. Flat Champ for FH and flex shots and for BH I like Star sometimes even G*.

Just find what you like and go for it. If all one plastic type works for you do it, I think there are better options for myself, but people succeed doing weirder things than that.

It's mold-dependent for me, now that I think about it. There are very few molds where I don't prefer one plastic over another, but which plastic that is, is not consistent through my bag. I have a healthy mix of champ/star like plastics.

I like Star for all drivers (Destroyers, Firebirds, and OLFs) and and KC Pro or equivalent type baseline for all my mids and putters (KC Rocs, BT Hard Harps, stiff Gateway blend Wizards).

Two exceptions:

I like stiff Champ Roadrunners -- I think they deform less on impact and absorb less energy for rolling and they don't wear in as fast from all the beating rollers put on discs.

I carry a Champ Rancho Roc as my most OS Roc -- they're beefy and they last forever.

I like premium plastics, especially for mids and higher. Z or champion was always my favorite, but good Star/ESP has grown on me. And like others have said, there are some molds which I prefer in certain plastics (Star Teebird, Star Beast, Champ Firebird, ESP Surge) while I'll throw others in anything (e.g. Buzzz, Comet, Zone).

I do prefer the more baseline feel of the pro D and kc but drivers don't last long like that.. As long as I have grip and moderate stiffness I am fine. Once your muscle memory is down and a constant the only plastic issue is the firmness of the disc. Too soft and you cant transfer much energy into it.
