Polaris Versions

I used to have an old Polaris LS that i loved.
I ended up losing that disc and replacing it, But the new one just seems different. Is this due to the version of the disc?
The new one is stamped 1.19 and my old one had no version stamped on it at all.

millienium plastic(base plastic) dosnt seem to have changed much i guess it possible, my guess would be that your old one was a different weight or it had hit a tree or something that plastic dosnt hold up well against close tree hits .

I now have three different runs. An unmarked, a 1/18 and two 1/19s. All of them are 150g. Allowing for beat in, (and for what little I've thrown the 19s. I just got them) I find them surprisingly consistant.

I threw my primary 1/18 tye dye (pretty disc too) into a lake last month.

The Millennium base plastic (ie - Innova Pro plastic) has changed slightly over the years, but nothing drastic...with one exception. The 1.13 runs are made with a blend of CE plastic...and they're durable as hell! Also seemed a bit more stable than the other runs I've thrown.

I've got 2 for sale if anyone is interested...

There has only been one version of the Polaris LS. The first number on Millennium discs stand for the mold, the second number for the run. So a 1.19 Polaris LS means they are still using the original mold "1" and that disc is from the 19th run from that mold.

For a few runs Millennium dropped the numbering, which is why you have some with no numbers.

There are some discs like the Tachyon LF that went through several variations. I have 2.2, 3.1 and 4.1 Tachyon LF's. Since the first number is different, you knew the mold changed. It's actually a cool little feature that I wish all manufacturers used.

Since the Polaris still has "1" as the first number, you know the mold is the same. Any variation you notice is due to the same things that make any discs from the same mold vary from run to run.

Honestly though, I just prefer the Teebird for my fairway driver slot.

Maybe your old disc was an Orion LS which is a totally different disc but for some reason shares the name LS.

They also make the JLS which is another disc that shares the LS for some reason. Does anyone know that the J in JLS stands for?

I have nothing to base this on, but I thought it stood for "John" as in Houck.
