Any word on how this disc is working for anyone? Hoping to try it out soon.

Well I have to say I like it a lot. Its not nearly as flippy as I was expecting but its faster out of the hand than my wraiths and holds a nice straight to slight turnover line. A little faster and easier to throw than the wraith and not as squirrelly as my seasoned wraith. I was surprised at the low speed stability, but once you learn the lines to throw it on the fade can be worked to your advantage. I'm not sure if it will replace my pro wraiths or not but I do like it a lot.

That's how I related it on DiscGolfReview. It's not nearly as flippy as the standard Millennium (pro) plastic. I threw a new 164 Q and a 170 M and the Q was a lot more stable. It went 3/4 of its flight straight and then faded. The M flipped pretty easy.

In all honesty, I doubt there is any difference in plastic. If your throwing one of the glitter Astras its possibly a matter of additive durablilty. Much like Glow plastic, I can see the Metal Flake or Glitter or whatever having a positive effect on flight/performance.
