Hey Dave, I'd appreciate it if you could shed some light on something I've wondered about for a long time... I tried searching everywhere in this thread for an answer but it doesn't look like this question has been asked, but I apologize if you've answered it before.
Why is it that discs made in Star plastic (or Champion for that matter) tend to be more high speed stable than the same mold in DX or Pro?
Star discs have the same flight rating characteristics of Champion discs, although some Star discs may be slightly more high-speed stable.
I have a Star Sidewinder that barely turns over but it just glides forever in essentially a straight line. It's probably my favorite driver. But compared to say, a DX Archangel, it's not nearly as easy to turn over. I realize the Archangel is more understable, but the difference is like night a day.
I can understand that over time Star plastic is going to wear down a lot less, but it seems like right out of the box, the Star plastic is more high speed stable. It doesn't make any sense to me because I assume a disc's flight is controlled by its shape, not the plastic it's made out of.
Does Star plastic have less friction with the air or something along those lines?
