Misprints: What's the difference?

So the stamp was off or the name misspelled or the logo didn't turn out. Do these "blemishes" diminish the advertised flight of the disc at all? Do companies sell them because of a defect in the mold/plastic or are they purely cosmetic? Inquiring (cheap) minds want to know.

Misprints are merely cosmetic, and should fly exactly the same as regular-stamped disc.

From what I have been told if there is a problem with the mold they just melt them back down and try again. Once they have the ink on them they can't do that anymore.

Misprints and factory seconds should fly just like the normal molds. Just cosmetic flaws.

In my experience f2's could have more than just cosmetic flaws where misprints that is true.

I only bag one misprint right now (a Z Buzzz), but I have a bunch of others. None of them are any worse than their more expensive/non-misprinted counterparts. That Z Buzzz is my favorite Buzzz that I own, and I have 5 other Z's.

^^ I have an X out Teebird that looks like the little ring on the bottom had a couple plastic strings stuck to the mold, the plastic is slighly warped there only on the bottom, flies perfect though.

I own a lot of misprints and a few Factory Second discs.

I recommend Marshall St if you are interested in Discraft Elite Z misprints... You can choose the mold weight and colour and they are really cheap if there is a monthly sale. Anything other than Z, they seem to not carry. They have a decent supply of Innova misprints in a variety of plastics. However, if you want access to a fuller catalog, the Innova Factory Store kicks ass.

NOTE: Only Innova F2's that I've bought have had anything visibly wrong with the plastic (like a black fleck in a glow disc, or a bubble in the wing). I haven't noticed any obvious flaws in flight though.

I have split a box of MVP misprints with some friends last year. It was back when they only had 4 molds, so there was lots of overlap. These were the best quality misprints is ever seen; if it wasn't for the really cool factory second stamp that they added, it would be pretty difficult to tell that there is anything wrong with the stamp.

Dynamic Discs carries some Lat64/Westside/DD molds that can be bought individually, but they also have a random box.
