VIP-plastics properties

Super-durable hi-tech plastic with excellent performance. VIP plastic is transparent so you can see through it. Discs made in VIP-plastic maintain their flight characteristics and reliability for a long time. This plastic is suitable to both recreational players and pro players.

Tournament-plastics properties

An advanced version of VIP-plastic that contains technical polymers. You cannot see through Tournament plastic. The durability of Tournament plastic is at the same level than VIP Plastic, but the Tournament's grip is slightly better.

BT-plastics properties

Westside BT plastic has great flight characteristics, exactly as good as VIP and Tournament plastics. A novice player may feel the BT plastic easier to grip than our other plastics. The BT plastic is more economical compared to high-end VIP and Tournament plastics but BT plastics durability is not as good. The BT plastic is available at selected european department stores.
