Hopefully this works.
If it's definitely Star plastic, then, at the earliest, it is first half of 2006. Not sure of value on it, I've never seen one sold.

I remember that a veraint of CE came out in 2004-2005 as a last run, but maybe that was not from Innova but an online disc dealer like GGGT who had a bunch of the disc found in one of the warehouses they store discs in. I mean I saw on YouTube somebody going into the back storeroom of a GGGT store people could go back there to look for discs and found a Quest AT Wheel a disc not made for a long time and an old plastic Turbo .

That plastic was out in mid 2006 but I never saw the reason for a plastic that was ESP like but not as durable, the old ESP before the year of the Soft oops that led to the ESP FLX for a few years but then I got in 2009 a Star Valkyrie and saw the potential of such a plastic. I still have to figure out why Innova has a Putter Pro that is R-Pro and driver/to certain midrange molds Driver Pro that can be almost a Echo Star plastic in a hard run.

Is there anything in particular to look for to identify between early runs of C-line PD2s?

Yo, help me out. None of the locals can figure out what this disc is. Rim is slightly more narrow than a Leopard, feels like 11x era champ plastic. I tried going through the stickied PDGA approval photos, but it’s really hard to see the profiles well enough to confirm. I don’t really care how much it’s worth, it’s more about the mystery that needs to be solved.

What do you mean by "slightly more narrow"? If it's a smaller wing than a Leopard with Rancho tooling like that it's a Cheetah or a Polaris LS most likely. Everything else would have a larger wing.

Narrower like an old school Innova 5 speed. The Leopard and Gazelle’s 6 speed rim is wider.

So you are thinking it's a Spider or a Gremlin or something like that?

Looking at the approved discs measurements, the Gazelle, Leopard, Polaris LS, and Cheetah all come out at 1.6 centimeters. The only older mold with a 1.5 measurement is the Gator, so maybe it just “feels” smaller. It is really broken in, after all.

The closes comparison seems to be the PLS, just with all the edges completely worn off.

If you gave me a Cheetah and a Polaris LS along with a mixed up unmarked stack of both and left me to sort them, it would be a crapshoot. They always looked like the same disc to me.
