Default Innova Beast L stamps

Hey guys,

Been browsing some sites looking for some Beast L's to try out. Does anyone know if the "L" version is actually stamped 10 5 -3 2? I've seen a few with this stamp, and want to make sure if this is the version to grab.

Thanks again

I don't know.

But Disc Golf Center separates the Beast-X from the Beast-L. Here is the link to the L version.

This way you can be sure that whatever you order is the L version. DGC calls the Beast-X the "Beast (Retooled)."

Plus, DGC advertises here on DGCR so clicking on their banner ad helps out DGCR


EDIT: if you see one with those 10/5/-3/2 flight ratings then it should definitely be the L version.

I like me a good Star Beast. The three that I've had were all stamped -2 & 2, and I have become convinced that they're the retooled or "new mold" Beast. Could be totally wrong, but I'm pretty sure the Stars tend not to be X.

Are you looking at DX? Star? Champion? That stamp would make a lot of sense on DX, which does behave more like a -3.

I've seen them in both Pro and DX, which is what I'm looking for. Not interested in Champion, since that would make them a little more stable/over, which is not what I'm after.

Be VERY careful about buying Beasts on the internet. I bought a champ Beast-X from Marshall St and DGC and both turned out to be L's.

Apparently the issue is Innova East (or Carolina Flyers?) got NONE of the newly molded Beast-X's and instead was relegated to being the Beast-L liquidation center. So Innova East was shipping out L's as X's and then the retailer was shipping them out as X's.

(Please someone correct me if I'm wrong, this is according to a couple retailers I spoke with)

Lol...Innova East was called "Carolina Flying Discs" back in the day. Some old dudes like me will sometimes still call them that. As to the rumor of them shipping Beast L's as Beast X's, there would be no way anyone would really know that who would post it on an Internet message board.

As to your discs, are you saying they are stamped with a Beast X stamp but they are L's?

In regards to Star Beasts, I own the only x mold star beast that I know to exist, and it is from the special blend Orc era with Dave Dunipace's initials on it. I'm not sure on the flight numbers unfortunately because I have just never cared for that mold, Pre Barry Beasts are all I need!
