Plastic blends

I wanted to track of all the plastic blends that major disc manufactures have introduced. A goal could be to produce a revised market-wide flight chart. One that takes into account mold, weight, and material. It's a process I'll build on with specification descriptions and advertised attributes.

A quick note before we take an inventory. Air temperature seems to be the affect du jour. Targeting stiffness relative to climate, as players hit the course year round, shows another way the sport continues to evolve. Led by Discraft's FLX and Innova's GStar lines, other manufacturers have introduced similar concepts late in 2014, making for an interesting fireworks display of new product to consider.

Please comment with any details I've missed. I'm interested in your opinions regarding the various blends. Listed alphabetically by manufacturer, excluding tie-dye and signature variations, the table contains the following observations:
