Agreed they are different, after they hit a tree or crash into rocks, this is especially true. But they are not discs that I throw rarely...I know my DX discs well enough to know which ones I can substitute for each of my premium plastic drivers and get similar results. I'd never suggest that people should throw plastic they're not familiar with just because they are facing a water hazard.

just because its dx does not make it crappy or different. throw a brand new dx tee bird and a brand new star tee bird and a brand new champion teebird and they all fly the same. what the real problem is lack of confidence in your game or too much reliance on a piece of plastic. the shot calls for what the shot calls for. if you have to throw a 380' hyzer for your second shot on hole 5 at west lake and you pull out some second hand $3.99 dx wraith and hyzer flip it 100' to the right of the basket and wonder why, you got major commitment issues. pull out the disc that you would throw on flat ground with no water and miss the basket to the left and possibly short. stop playing hero golf and put the disc in play

So you’re telling me all types of plastic fly the same for the same mold?? I call ........ don't even tell me your Pro Boss has the same flight as your Champ Boss cause you have an entire thread dedicated to the Pro Boss, I don't see you pimping the Champ Boss

i belive that the slower the disc is the most similar it is in all plastics.. for example... not much diff with putters mids or fairway drivers but once u get up to high speed drivers there is a bigger difference. i prefer throwing a lot of different plastics and buy the same disc in every plastic to see which one feels best and flies the way i want it... i can go buy almost any roc and it will be the same... (givin it is the same mold, rancho's will not fly the same as a san marino)

I'm not a pro and people with stronger arms and more experience might detect subtle differences that escape me. But I think the biggest difference (if they are NEW) comes from the grip, because of the different surface texture of the plastics, and I think the aerodynamics difference is minimal.

Some people here may be talking about used DX plastic which is obviously way different, like they are from altogether different molds.

Yeah, but the Boss has been through 3 or 4 mold changes in Champion. I agree for the most part with what Mike is saying. DX will just change faster due to durability, not mold modification.
