Or if DGA just started sourcing discs from China and Sweden.

There's no need for a Passion when you have the Pipeline. Premium plastic Fierce seems to fly neutral for page, the Reef is a great neutral - understable putter.

Reef's an APX in premium plastic.

Not sure if Discraft has ever released the actual APX in premium plastic... but I am sure I've never seen one.

I have an APX in Elite X. Above their D plastic of the time, but I am not even sure they were making Z discs then....though I would think so. I certainly never saw Z plastic back then, but looking for discs in the interwebs was not a thing....even on dial up AOL.

I think she may have thrown some PP signature D2's with Prodigy.

With Prodigy, it seems like all the pro in-the-bag videos are really old Prodigy molds that Big Jerm or PP gave somebody who gave to somebody else. No one hardly bags current production. Dickerson was probably the closest exception, and why his are selling for $20.

My wife has an APX that was an award from a tourney. 2nd Place Tourney Stamp on it.

2011-2013'ish. Premium, clear sparkle plastic. Looks and feels like Z/Champ. Maybe it was a special run for tourney. Not sure.

I've seen old APX's in what used to be called "Elite Pro." They're fairly stiff (especially compared to Soft APX's, pretty much like Pro D. Then they started making Soft APX's in what was a softer blend of Elite X plastic. At some point the dropped the word "Elite" and now they just call it "X" plastic, but it's basically the same. And then there are Swirls, which are just a type of soft Elite X.

By premium plastic, I mean some version Z (whether Elite Z, Z, Crystal Z, Glow Z,) or ESP, or even Ti. AFAIK APX's have never been commercially available in those plastics, only in Elite Pro, and soft blends of Elite X and X.

But I've seen Reefs in S-Line, (which is like Z) and D-Line (which is like D).

My gut says you're right about it being a special tourney run.

My only APX experience was a guy at Iowa State around 2003-2005 who putted with the swirly APX’s and destroyed me on a regular basis.

I think the swirly’s are fairly rare and sought after?
