Those Gummy Champ Valkyrie can be found new on the Innova Disc Golf Pro Shop and if the disc looks like this https://proshop.innovadiscs.com/cham...tra-gummy.html you probably have one of those discs. I have never liked those but I do like the slightly gummy even though most I have talked to about who use the Champion Valkyrie like the Jolly Luancher type plastic and even more so in regular production runs.

170g ESP Buzzz from eBay: This ESP blend is a touch softer & not as super stable as recent ESP Buzzz's. I like these more than the newer ones

175g Viking from eBay: Got a chance to throw this around a bit today. It's flat & I really like it. It's really just what I wanted & will be a really good compliment to my Thunderbirds. Compared to my 166g beaten workhorse Thunderbird the Viking is a touch slower, less glidey & not quite as os. Basically a more stable & dependable Valkyrie.

That older 2010's ESP is less durable, after the oop's Discraft could only make ESP FLX in 2008 the ESP got softer in 2009 and up till the light swirl plastic with the numbers came out. Yeah I found with the ESP Impacts, one disc from 2016 hit a tree way too hard and had a small gouge in the disc the one currently in bag. Before that the disc was a tad more US then I would want, odd the hit made disc more stable. The others I have tried most, are correct in being full on Neutral in flight.

up till the light swirl plastic with the numbers came out.

That would be 2018 when Discraft started putting the Universal Flight Numbers on all their discs, right? (Except Tour Series).

Or was Discraft making light swirly ESP before they started adding the flight numbers?

I ask because Im interested in the run history and variety of swirlies, especially Discraft ESP.

2 Pro Valks from PIAS.

I've been a bit apprehensive ordering Pro online lately...some have looked like Star and felt like Champ.

They added flight numbers and swirl to disc in late 2017 but it did not reach all models made in ESP until 2018 as the older ESP was still being sold for some discs running out the older ESP and a few models are not popular in ESP.

Youre a bold man, pros a bit of a crapshoot. (Got bunt on six of a run of garbage run of pro Teebirds that tear up if you squint a them hard.)

I got one slightly swirly ESP Buzzz from DGC just before the flight numbers came out. Just a touch firmer than some of the earlier ESP but good grip, not like the new ESP.
