I'll start off with a picture of all the runs (minus the 1st run glows): Sorry ahead of time for the crappy pics!

The timeline goes from left to right:
First run, 2nd run(a), 3rd run(a), 4th run(b), Glow(c).

A) 2nd run Ion:

How to Tell:
There are a few things to look for, a few more obvious than the others. These things are an opaque flight plate, textured bottom about a little over 1" in from the rim to the center of the disc, "PDGA APPROVED" "WWW.MAPLEVALLEYPLASTICS.COM" ect tooled on the bottom of the disc, and a lower set overmold. (Better/comparison picture coming in next post)

B) 3rd run Ion:

How to tell:
Much like the 2nd run Ions, the 3rd runs also have an opaque flight plate. Unlike the 2nd runs however, the 3rd runs have a completely smooth flight plate on the bottom. The overmold was reseated a little higher and "MVP" "Ion" "PDGA APPROVED" and "GYRO™" are on the overmold in embossed lettering.


2nd run(left) vs. 3rd run(right), Textured vs. Smooth

Embossed lettering on the overmold

Reseated overmold. 2nd run(left) vs. 3rd run(right) Smaller vs. Larger bead

C&D) 4th run Ion:

How to tell:
Much like the 2nd run is to the 3rd run, the 3rd run is to the 4th. The only real difference between the two is that the flight plate has been changes to "candy", or transparent plastic. The still have the smooth flight plate, the reseated overmold, the embossed lettering.


3rd run vs. 4th run, Opaque vs. "Candy" plastic


SPECIAL BONUS MATERIAL!
2nd run GLOW Ion:
The proto types for the glow Ions were made from the exact same mold, tooling, ect as the 2nd runs, but had the Eclipse™ overmold. There were only 10 of these discs made, and only 4 sold to the public!

Look at my timeline of Ions on my first of 4 posts just above yours. And it's BLUE core, RED rim!

That's one hell of an Ion collection you have going. I think I'm pushing 10 or so myself. I love being able to load up my bag full of Ions and tossing 6 drives on every hole at a short course.

Nothing like the 2nd run or 3rd run? I find my 3rd and 4th runs directly comparable, 175 S opaque flies like my 175 S eclipse, same with my 171 opaque and translucent.
