Manufacturers official product description:

The Westside Stag is a fairway driver we introduced in 2013. It is a perfect addition to everyone's bag. It has a good stability level and a smaller rim design to accommodate everyone. It is controllable, predictable, and will have a good release in the hand of any player. This is a great disc choice if you only want to carry only one fairway driver. For professional players the Stag will be straight tunnel disc that finishes with Hyper. For lower arm speeds the Stag will finish left with a little less flare than drivers with the same flight integrity level. The Stag is available in VIP, VIP Air, and Tournament plastics. Westside Stag is a PDGA approved disc.

VIP-plastic

VIP plastic is our most durable plastic. It comes in a nice see through and opaque appearance. It has a tacky grip nice glossy finish. Designed with super resistant polymers to withstand great force, still hold its shape, and maintain original flight characteristics. No matter what you hit VIP will show great resilience and fly the same the next time you throw it.

Tournament-plastic

Our Tournament plastic is just what it sounds like. Designed with the experienced tournament player in mind, TP has a tackier grip, and is faster out if the hand. It has a softer feel, thus breaking in easier than VIP. Not all shots are hyzers and sometimes you will have to shape shots. TP plastic will give you the flights you need in those tournament situations.

VIP AIR-plastic

Our VIP Air line was designed to make throwing discs easier for players of all levels. It will give you more distance in most conditions. VIP air has the same feel in the hand as our VIP line but is just lighter and infused with tiny air bubbles. The bubbles help the disc stay in the air longer. We offer VIP Air in 160 grams and under in most molds. Perfect for the recreational player to enjoy a more exciting game while playing disc golf.

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.
