How does the Aurora Northstar play?


#1

Is it any different to the older, solid color versions? This other Japanese store claim it’s 67 grams and not 69 grams as the “standard”


#2

Played one at MER. And thank goodness I did; it saved me from buying it.

I thought it played a bit lighter than the older models, so that makes sense if it’s 67g instead of 69. Definitely plays well, but on the first throw I was disappointed. It lacked any sort of ‘personality’. Looks amazing, though!


#3

Yoyowiki also says that it is 67.3g for the aurora edition and 69.5g for the normal, solid colour ones.

I love mine. Looks Great. Plays Great.

I’ve never played another NorthStar. I’m not sure what the others play like, but I love mine. If you looking to add another performance plastic to your collection, look no further to the Aurora Borealis NorthStar.


#5

Or the new protostars?


#6

I have one. After trying it, it didn’t feel anywhere near 69g. This possibly 67g weight must explain it.


#7

It apparently does not have the metal hub ring that older ones have.


As for lightness/float in play i personally get OG/JK>aurora>glow
