I'd say they're uncommon, and to a certain degree, sought after. But I wouldn't say they're truly rare.

Seems folks who have them, often have several.
I have 4 of them myself: three purple and one green, (all in my preferred putting weigh of 173-174g). But I've seen pix where folks show off 10-20 of them.

Thread drift is what we do…

Didn’t they release the APX in premium for the Ledgestone?

Goggle says…. Yep, ESP this past year.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program…

So it only took two decades for Discraft to run it in premium plastic.

I believe it was in Jawbreaker plastic, so kind of a throwback to the swirlies but not as soft, IMO.

From OTB's website:

Ledgestone ESP APX – Ledgestone and Discraft have done it again with these gorgeous swirly APX! The Ledgestone ESP APX has a super gorgeous swirly look to the great feeling ESP plastic. The APX is a great putter off the tee, similar to the Magnet but with a less aggressive bead to it. When thrown hard they will get a touch of flip but mainly hold a pretty straight flight. This disc is great for someone who loves throwing the APX but wants it to hold its stability for longer. This is one of the few times you will be able to find an APX in high grade plastic, it is normally found in only Jawbreaker and X Line plastic. The Ledgestone ESP APX is a fundraiser disc for the super awesome tournament later in the year. The Ledgestone Insurance Open is the tournament with the biggest payouts every single year. The stamp for this disc is a mini stamp that has a little swirl to go with the sick swirls in the plastic!! The swirly APX will not be around for long so make sure to snag one before they are gone.

Struck me as funny when a player other than Paul McBeth was wearing a Paul Mcbeth cap in a tournament. Cant be 100 sure who it was (memory says Hailey King but it might be just transference from this thread). Of course, people may be also throwing somebody else's signature discs but thats gotta be because they like the flight. A cap is a cap though (doubt that the PMcB hat had some unique characteristics). Why give free ads for somebody else in the same tournament, even if not in your own division?

Pros support teammates and want to see each other succeed.
