Default Misprint vs. X-Out

Innova has x-outs & Discraft has misprints but I've never seen it the other way around. So I'm assuming there's not Innova misprints & Discraft x-outs?? I have a few misprints & others in the past & all I remember ever seeing wrong was the stamp might not be perfect. I have one x-out, acually the only one I've seen close up, a white dx Roc that has some colored specs on the flightplate but the mold looks perfect. So my question is- are misprints & x-outs comparable between the two companies or have I been lucky with mine & only gotten stamping problem discs on misprints? Are x-outs going to be good deals or will it be a crap shoot between a stamp/colored spec problem or a molding flaw? Thanks for the info.

X outs will usually have some minor deformity.

What I am curious about with Innova, is what the differences in X outs and "Factory Seconds" are?

Umm, none. X outs are factory seconds.

All the X outs I have purchased have been Champion plastics and have some black flakes in them. So, purely cosmetic flaws.

I recently bought my first factory second from Innova, and it had a weird bump on top of the rim.

Innova Misprints get the X-Out stamp. I've seen a few at PIAS that had nothing wrong with the disc except the wrong stamp.

Discraft misprints have a giant and sometimes very deep brand on the back, where Innova merely gives them an unsightly stamp. The brand isn't an issue usually, but for older plastics on thin domes it can get a little iffy.

A lot of Innova X-Outs(factory seconds) just have cosmetic issues, but there are some with issues such as warped flight plates, bumps on the rim, or bumps on the flight plate that will cause the flight path of said disc to change. Like I said though, a lot/most are air bubbles, slight discoloration, or the wrong stamp which are all completely fine.

Discrafts misprint are a different story. I don't think I have ever seen and actual problem with the disc, just stamped wrong.

Basically, if you are buying Innova X-Out you will want to pay a little more attention to detail, but with Discraft its just a stamp issue most likely.

The problem with the Discraft ones is that they may have stamped it the wrong thing so you need to know your molds.
