1) When dealing with misprints, ANY coment about the stamps (such as 2 discs with the same/similar stamp) is going to be seen as bang out of line.

2) OP says both drivers are OS, while others have described the Ballista as US.
Could it be an OS mold stamped as a Ballista? It happens... I've got some Discraft I picked up as misprints stamped with the wrong mold.

Trilogy has the mold name lettered in the back of the disc.. it’s probably a Ballista. He said he doesnt have the arm for it because it’s too fast, so it is OS for him.

"Buyer be advised that mystery misprint packs likely will not fulfill the following: cater to your particular armspeed, fill perceived holes in your bag, provide a complete lineup of discs, and/or meet your individual aesthetic standards for CTP prizes.

These discs may be functionally equivalent to others that cost approximately 33% more, with the discount reflecting the lack of choice in the assortment of discs you may receive; however, despite the equivalent utility, you may feel like each disc you receive is worth less than $5.

If you are interested in receiving 5 randomly assorted discs in new condition at a significantly discounted price, and understand what a random assortment of misprints means, this may be a good deal. If, however, you are seeking particular discs to meet your individual subjective needs, and/or are uncomfortable with the potential range of outcomes associated with a random assortment, and/or do not understand what may comprise a random assortment of discs, then stay away from this package deal."

I’ve never considered ordering a mystery box. I already overspend on stuff that I know I want. Maybe if a company was offering crazy value like 10 discs for $50, or promising every box would have a disc signed by a top pro, I’d consider it.

That's ridiculous, you complain that the discs are no good *for you* and they aren't even for yourself? You got a decent deal but your entitlement if of the chart. If I was the guy receiving your complaint I'd propably print it and put it on the pinboard for a good laugh.

It's embarrassing how you are now trying to discourage people from buying Westside after your received exactly what you ordered.

^^yeah, just noticed this. Why the hell you mad that you got the Ballista and Enforcer if they’re not for you, anyway! *eyeroll*

If your Bio is correct, you’ve only been playing for six months, and earlier you said you have like a 325 ft arm.
Not even trying to be a d**k here, but just practice up so you can git güd and get those drivers up to speed! You wont be complaining on here when you’re pushing 400 with that Ballista.

For me, "mystery box" translates directly to "discs nobody would buy otherwise."
