1st - domey like the S-FDs, pretty stiff champ plastic. IIRC these were run for the Russian Open but some were stock stamped. I have only seen these in clear/white and stock stamp.

2nd - Flat and stiff - not dead flat like buzzzes and firebirds get, they have some shoulder, but flat across the top. very HSS. always have a bit of swirl/pearl in one spot on the rim and some blizzard bubbles if you hold 'em up to the light and look for 'em.

3rd - softer, grippy, more translucent jolly launcher blend of champ. not as domey as the 1st runs or S-FDs, not as flat as 2nd. I haven't thrown one yet.

It sounds like the one you have is a 2nd run. Those are my favorite.

Yes, they are very nice. I didn't notice bubbles in the 171 orange that I have. The 167 has 1 spot in the rim where there aren't bubbles.

EDIT
Just went and looked, the orange does indeed have bubbles

Just bought my first S-FD this weekend and have been very impressed with it so far. Is it my imagination or is it made out of a Teebird top with a Leopard bottom? I honestly can't tell you of any other time where I threw a brand new disc multiple times during a round and it was absolute money every single time. I was sailing through tight fairways and just gliding for days. I think I'm in love...

Not a Leopard bottom. Pretty sure I remember hearing it is an Archangel with a spacer. Can't remember the top.

Well technically their discs are still MADE in the USA.

Yeah, I think Discmania is still molded by Innova in the states.
