While context is key, this sounds like you're saying stats are irrelevant irregardless. The flight characteristic is most certainly affected by any number of variables, but to say that "different flight numbers" are "produced" is pure heresy. In that light, we forget that outside influences aside, that the disc in it's pure form and flight will achieve exactly what it is saying; thus giving us a basis to manage said variables.

I won't buy a disc if it has the flight ratings on it. Some people say I have OCD.



when i started playing they had a little 2inch by like 12inch folded paper that said the numbers and flight characteristics on all the current discs....im not sure when they quit doing it...i think i still have a few of them...

By the way, What do you call a Pro Champion Firebird ? Just curious. I've had two of them.
Candy Pro Firebird.

BTW
Once you've done the research and bought the disc...furthermore, thrown it a bunch:

There's no need to be reminded of the factory flight #s...so I gotta agree, it is kinda fartless to include them on the hotstamp.

Maybe it's for the old folks

Yes but this will be a boon to disc collectors. When innova changes a discs flight ratings to correspond to the undated ratings the old flight numbered discs will be valuable..

Can anyone tell me when Innova started putting flight numbers on the discs? I noticed that every pre-numbers champ disc I have has better plastic, and is molded more consistently. For example: I have a pre-# 161g Starfire that is super overstable, like a Starfire should be. I got a newer 175g one that was a domey, unpredictable p.o.s. My pre-# champ Sidewinder hyzered into concrete pretty hard the other day, barely left a mark. Newer champ Eagle and Firebird have not held up as well. I have been wanting to check out a champ Desroyer, were they made pre-flight #s?

Well, since everyone was up in arms in May, 2011, I'd say it was in May, 2011.

I got back into playing in April 2011, flight numbered discs were already in full swing.
