Champ panther came out in 2003...so i guess there could be that possibility...if it was early 2003

I've never heard of those Opaque Panthers being called CE, but I guess moose is right about the time-frame. Nice opaque plastic either way.

OK, I've got a couple that you guys can maybe help me with. First is a discraft disc that I got from a flea market a few years ago. I don't know what it is but someone here can probably ID it for me. I would also like to know the age.









Second disc is a comet that I just got. Has the bar stamp across the front and the ghost stamp on back like the ones that DD is selling in glow plastic. Does anyone know where to find more of these and how many were made. I was told by the guy I got it from that DD doesn't have any more. Anyone else seen these or have any? Whats the story with this disc?



Thanks guys, can't wait to see what yall have to say about these!!!!

90% sure the first disc is an X2. It was in production from '98-'04. That festival is held every year in Traverse City, so that stamp doesn't narrow down the date at all.

Thanks buddy. Is there any measurements I could take or different picture angles I could post that would help narrow it down?

Eh, that's just a Champ Panther. Calling it "CE Era" is just a way to get you to pay more money for it without actually saying it is CE. 'Cause it's not. I liked those older, flat Champ Panthers anyway. I might have gone $20 for it knowing it wasn't CE, so the "CE Era" label probably didn't get him much.

Nah, my eyes are shot and I can't really make out pictures very well. The easy way to tell an X2 is that it used a wing design very similar to a Cyclone and Cyclone 2. Cyclones and Cyclone 2's had the name of the disc in the tooling; the X2 did not. From the picture it looks like a Cyclone wing with no disc name in the tooling. That's why I'm guessing X2. If you have a Cyclone lying around you can look at the wings and see if they seem similar to you.

Ahh, thanks. So finding another one probably wouldn't be that hard? Or am I to expect the gateway curse of plastic blends with these too?
