DX is the original plastic from Innova Champion Discs. Almost every mold of disc is available in this base plastic. One of the reasons players love DX so much is the price, it's super affordable. You'll find from our selection on our site, it's about half the cost of star or champion plastic from Innova. This plastic differs from regular frisbee plastic because it's more grippy and made specifically for disc golf. There is a wide array of colors and weights to choose from. DX can be as light as 130 grams and as heavy as 200g (for superdiscs).
Innova DX plastic beats in quickly, that's one of the reasons that pro and amateur players love it. A putter is best for putting when it has either 0 chips in it, or when it has hundreds. Hitting chains, rocks, or anything else with DX will put a small ding in the disc. This is called seasoning, and you want to have a seasoned putter or two in your bag. It's useful because it provides a much better grip when you're putting. It can last for over a decade if the disc is a slower speed.
A midrange or a driver in DX plastic won't be as overstable as it is in other plastics. This allows players to have different discs for different lines. Discs that are DX will have significantly more turn and be understable. It's important to have a good mix of understable and overstable discs in your bag so you can be prepared for any shot you encounter.
