I'm really interested to find out about the Teerex top on the 1.1s. I've been saying all OLFs have Wraith tops for as long as I've thrown them, which was when my local shop had all their Millennium discs on closeout and I bought nearly everything they had (it was 50% off after all).
Just my honest opinion

1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 QOLFs all have different tops. 3 different tops - or just 3 different ways it molded. Not sure but they all fly different. To make it confusing, there are later run 1.2s in the same mold as 1.3(the 1.3 came out this year). The 1.1 and early 1.2s to me were more Teerex top, possibly a couple different teerex tops as that disc changed

I only have anecdotal knowledge, having adopted OLF's earlier this year.

Two of my SOF's are stamped 1.2, the other is has a mild dome and tackier/softer star plastic (similar blend in my first run SJLS), but nothing like the 1.2 QOLFs or 1.3 SOLFS in terms of dome. The others are 1.1 stamp or "Worlds Biggest" - I don't recall the year on that one.

1.2 QOLFs are actually really nice, a gradual dome and firm, lightly pearly champ plastic - pretty o/s, great in strong wind if you have room to turn/fade. I only put it in when it's really whipping windy.

1.3 SOLFs... man. these things are salad bowls. I've lucked into one that wasn't a total pop-top, and it's pretty beefy, good into 15mph winds and my usual o/s disc that I'll grab if I don't quite need a Firebird. The other I have is domey enough to slow down pretty quick/act overstable in calm, but also get pushed around by the wind since it doesnt cut through at all. Useless!

Okay i have some more random-obscure questions.

I got a white factory stamp white 'SOLF' that doesn't have a run number in the stamp. It is also flat and zipper-topped. What run is it?

I got a bunch of white "Innova Factory Second" stamped 'SOLF' that are not zipper topped. Assuming these are 1.2s?

I have a bunch of factory stamped white zipper top 1.1's that are 'SOLF'.. are these 1.1s? or 1.2s?

I have a handful of SOF 1.1 and loved them, just recently took them out of the bag. The biggest thing I can say about the 1.2 and 1.3 SOLF runs I've seen, is that the nose of the disc is a little taller, almost a spacer added in. I can not tell you if the tops are different, I am just ZAM and zj are correct since they have insider knowledge about the discs. The 1.1's all turn a little more out of the box for me then later runs with the same huge fade. A lot of people like me prefer the 1.1's over any other run.

what do i have, and what can i expect?

i have read through this about 5 times, and dont see my answer
so i will just ask it

just picked up a SOLF 1.2
bottom is marked S-OLF (weight is 164g)

what is this baby made from? and how stable will it be?
i use an opto saint for most of my drives
i bought this thinking it would be a more stable disc
but inbounds has them as being very similar

sorry for the bad side view pic

That is the exact color scheme and stamp of my favorite SOLF. Mine is 172 so I don't know if your will be the same. Mine started out almost Predator overstable and quickly developed some turn. It is now my most used driver in the bag. I wish I could find more. If it is like mine, it is of the early runs of the 1.2s and is distinctively different than the later run 1.2s and 1.3s.

It's a second run OLF. It will start out overstable, and develop a little turn in time. Then again, I've been using the same QOLF for about a year, and it still doesn't turn. Excellent disc for a headwind or a long straight drive that you know will fade every time.

I know this isn't an OLS thread, but there's no need to start another thread when I know there's a lot of Millennium knowledge going on in this one.

So, I'm going to see if I can work with OLSs again, and put two in my bag. One is a 1.1 QOLS with the barstamp, and it's marked QOLS. The other is a 1.3, but it's marked S-OS. The latter is noticeably more understable than the QOLS. So are those markings correct? Do I have a first and third run in the bag, or is the S-OS a different run? I seem to remember hearing that there was some mis-marking of stamps with the OLS.

1.2's tend to have a blunter looking nose than the 1.1's, which look more rounded.

I have a few 1.1 and 1.2 SOLFS and QOLFS I can take comparison pictures of. White, orange, purple, FR's, zipper tops, tourney stamps etc.

I wish finding a good olf was easier. They are one of the best discs ever, but it can be a pain at times...
