The quick break down...on c lines at least...

I don’t recall ever seeing first run stock stamps, just the Russian stamped ones and maybe a couple straggler custom stamps?

Second run stiff, flat, bubbles, beef.

Third and fourth runs had some dome, plastic had some flex. These runs are pretty much identical.

Fifth runs were a similar shape as runs 3 and 4 but stiffer plastic.

Sixth runs were flatter and more stable, obviously not second run overstable.

After that I believe c lines have all been embossed, couldn’t tell you how many runs. They got domey again and for a while all I saw were max weight so I lost interest. I have enough throwers from the runs I like...

I have been throwing a 175g S. Great straight disc, although a fair amount of fade at the end. I recently bought a 171l in Luster, because I really like the Luster P1's that I putt with. The Luster FD is definitely more overstable than the S.

How old is your S line? I haven't thrown the newest run of max weight S lines, but in my experience the Luster is less stable than S line.

This is my finding as well. I have an embossed S line that's perfect and side by side with my Luster the Luster has a much lower PLH and is far more flippy then my S or my C. Also has a noticeably bigger dome.

Yup. same here. The luster FD, PD and FD3 were all straighter than other plastics. However the MD3 was more overstable than regular MD3's. My glow MD4 and luster MD3 threw almost identical. The PD2 was also much more overstable when molded in lluster

Seems to be an oddity as of late. In sure Luster will get beefy again..... One day.

What does embossed mean with regard to disc stamps?

Look on the bottom of your disc. It will be inked "S-FD" or embossed "S-line FD". Nothing to do with stamps.

The name is pressed or melted into the bottom of the flight plate with some sort of machine or the mold itself...not sure how it works, rather than being written on the flight plate by a person.

So are some Discmania discs embossed? What does that distinction mean?
