Default Beast - old vs new mold

I know there have been past threads on this but I can't seem to get the search words correct...

What's the difference between the old mold and the new mold....although I think the old mold might be a new mold that duplicates an old mold...lol

I was browsing discs today and noticed the Beast listed as old mold or new mold...

So the old beast mold (now called the beast-x) was originally changed to be more understable because it's flight closely resembled the orc. The beast-x wing has more of a concave iirc, when compared to the retooled beast.

I'm a big fan of the beast. I started throwing the new mold as one of my first distance drivers. I now throw Wraiths, but I keep a new mold beast in the bag for as a long distance roller/tailwind driver.

The old mold beast flies just like my stable Wraiths, just slightly slower. They're a great option for folks who struggle with the 12+ speed discs but enjoy the X, 5, -1, 3 flight.

Thanks for the feedback. So the Beast-X (old mold) is more stable then the new mold. Interesting.

Anything labelled Beast should be considered then new mold and Beast X, Original, old mold, etc... are considered the more stable counterpart?

The newest stuff they finally have labelled clearly. When the new old mold first released all the discs got the same stamp. Now they have a new dx and champ stamp for beast-x.

For what it's worth, these new old molds in champ fly almost identically to an old pearly orc. Newer orcs seem way more overstable. So I finally have production backups available for my orcs!

Yeah. Our Academy still has both types with same stamp. You have to either eyeball or feel the rim to know which one is which.

You should be able to easily tell the difference between the two molds side by side, and once you have seen them side by side you should easily be able to tell the difference without comparison. Completely different rim shapes.

Beast-X is an amazing amazing disc, and the current Pro and champ blends are coming out very nice. I would buy a stack.

Well, hopefully the older stock will soon sell out and there will only be new old mold ones.

When the X started being produced again last year, they came out in the champion plastic stamp style before the current one. I got a clear and it's a X, then the stamp style changed within a couple of months.
