Re: Question for Dave D
I'd noticed the similarities in high-speed flight to lighter flat-top Firebirds, but firebirds (even light ones) seem to fade much more quickly than this particular Valk.
I'm thinking of the early JK Pro model - somewhere between a SE and CE plastic - most of which (if not all) were white and which were somewhere between transparent and opaque (cloudy, but smooth colored) in the 170-172 range (I can't speak to others because I only found the 171's and 172's). They seemed to wear in very quickly, but then were quite durable and consistant.
I just got a Viking in last night, and I've got high hopes for the disc (have not yet had a chance to throw it), but I've yet to find a plastic that had the same blend of tacky and confortable grip, consistant break-in, and long-term durability.
Does no-one else remember this disc or this plastic? Are my local friends and myself the only ones who loved it so much? How about some more feedback from the forum?
For custom runs, would you consider different plastic blends (as in, if I put in an order for a local tourney or club, would you consider molding some discs in that plastic - even a newer mold, like a viking)?
