Just hope you get the least overstable one! I have thrown about 8 different Boss's. Some new, some beat up and i have to say, i prefer a well seasoned one better! A brand new one out of the box, is very overstable. But once you hit a bunch of trees they can fly beautifully!!! Just cross your fingers!

I prefer the Pro Boss for pure distance and grip. I use my Champion Boss for wind distance and am not using the R-Pro much any more. They beat up way too quick for me and they are already light and understable.

What plastic/weight?

I have thrown a lot of Bosses and they vary quite a bit from plastic to plastic. Here's my experience with each.

FR Champ - Predictably straight with a touch of fade. I love these things but can't find any for less than 30-40 bucks which sucks because I'd love to stock up on them.
Feldberg Champ - Beefy as hell, one of the most overstable discs brand new but will beat in straight after about 1000 tree hits.
Star - I've had both domey and flat Star Bosses, the domey ones tend to beat in flippy pretty quick while the flat ones are more overstable and tend to stay that way.
R-Pro - Would make a good chew toy for your dog.
Pro - My personal favorite, although they do tend to beat in flippy after a few rogue tree hits here and there. They have the best grip/glide IMO. Just keep them off those wooded holes because I have destroyed a couple from the first tree hit.

Still wanting to pick up a NS and a Sparkle to give a test run. LMK if you got one you can let go of!

thanks a lot. thats a nice bit of info. i have a r-pro, and from what i have read they chew up way easy. i mainly throw it in the more open drives. but it's getting flippy on me and i've only thrown it about 75 times. so, i;m not excited about it dying on me. i might need to beef it up and get a champ of sorts. i did plow i into a tree 2 days back and put a nice dent in both the disc and the tree. so we'll see how she goes from there.

That would explain why mine is still overstable even after having the disc since they were released... Guess I need to hit some more trees!

I have a 175 Star that is pretty stable that I use for windier days. I have 1 r-pro that is pretty much a roller now. 2 Pro 175 which are my favorites as well.

"R-Pro - Would make a good chew toy for your dog."

That's what my new r-pro looks like after 2 rounds. I may have a control problem.

I only like the champs FR are great so great in fact the lake at idlewild likes to eat them (I have two in there if anyone found them) As for the signature champs I love em great for my huge annie shots as well as those nice big sidearm throws

Wonder why there was such a difference between the FR champion and the Feldburg edition.

Shortly after reading this thread I gave up on trying to beat in my Feldberg champion edition and switched to a Star and have been much happier with the disc. I just got an Eco-Star boss this past weekend which has an incredible feel to it. Looking forward to testing it out against a nuke
