It just means that the mold name is stamped (embossed) into the plastic. They used to write the mold names and weights in the factory, now they're embossed. Yes some DM molds are embossed and I assume that anything Innova molds would be embossed.

It's a way to determine how old a disc is. They started embossing the name about a couple of years ago

My S line is less than a year old. Its one of my favorite discs, although it fades a bit more than Id like at the end. Thats why I bought the FD Luster to try.

SIDEBAR: Ive been putting the lights out with a P2 Luster. It floats so well; Im almost never short. But in cold weather it becomes a brick. Putting with the new P2 Soft for the winter.

I grabbed a pair of Luster Gibson Leopard3s to try and they just made me sad for the way the Luster FDs turned out. They are flat, firm, and stable. I still like the FD's rim better, but I may bag the Leo3 on windy days.

Out of the four Luster FDs I bought, I got one flattish one. I'll just be thankful I got a decent one and hope they turn out better when/if they run them in Luster again.

I don’t know why everyone expected the luster ones to come out flat and OS. That’s not typical for any FD.

Luster isn’t even consistently OS compared to champion.

I always thought a general rule of thumb was Luster is more OS than Champ across the board. My Luster FD is money though.

Like everything, it depends on the disc and the run.

Discmania even mentions that this Luster run is firm and domey:

Yup, I knew when I ordered. Just saying that feeling the Gibson Leo3s makes me wish they turned out differently.

I bag an earlier, flatter run Luster FD that is my workhorse FD. It's not OS per say, but it resists turn well and finishes reliably... just a solid, stable flier.
