Thanks for the response. I just compared it to another champ sidewinder that I have laying around, and it does look pretty similar in terms of the type of rim. Main differences I could tell are that the rim on the mystery disc is both deeper and wider than the other champ sidewinder I have.


Anyone know a disc that's similar to the sidewinder rim but deeper/wider?

Go read the innova beast thread that was started the other day. ThreePutt gives a detailed explanation of the different Beast molds.

Default What's this disc

Seems to be the perfect place to ask this question...
Short time stalker, new member to the forum... in fact this very thread is what got me to finally join since i couldn't figure this out on my own and have come to realize I need the combined intellectual power of the community.

What I have is a Westside driver I believe... possibly a king but not sure enough in myself to take my own word for it. 170g

Description of what you see, or kinda see in the linked images below...
The head of an Alien, from the movie... Alien on the left coming out of, or through some cylindrical object with broken chain weaved throughout the image. The chain has a claw at the end of it in the lower right, and there is a humanoid head in the upper right with the fighting grimace expression and wearing a headband/bandanna.

Any assistance in confirming my suspicion or identifying this disc is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Every Westside disc I've seen has the name of the disc embossed on the bottom. I once found a Destiny with a tourny stamp on it. Only way I could tell what it was was the name embossed on it.

Dynamic and Lat64 seem to do the same thing.

My Shields and Hatchets have the embossed name, but my Boatmen do not. Maybe it's only on the newer molds or they added it at some point?

Sorry, I don't know on the disc.

So is this a SE Leopard? I've had one previously, and it felt like this one. Old style lettering and a bar stamp. It doesn't seem to have any Climo text anywhere.

Picked up this 2005 Glow Firebird. Marked #3/26. Anything special or just a cool thrower?

That's a candy pro leopard. SE would be opaque plastic with a big disc style bar stamp that said special edition leopard in it. It predates Barry getting his name on leopards so no signature in the stamp
