I thought that Innova made a limited release of that disc in the 2000's that was in weights from 150-160 grams? I could be wrong. That disc however would have had a 20th anniversary on the the disc somewhere though in smaller lettering.

I think you are partially right.. They did do some lighter Aviars but the stamp didn't look like that. It was a reprint of a classic stamp I think though. My memory of that is too hazy to trust but I remember someone playing with one.. And it was new.

A quick Google shows 20th anniversary gold ones clearly marked.

Recently acquired a beautiful opaque, finger printy 12x eagle L with flight numbers, but it has the older 11x CAL tooling. Is this an early run 12x? Any help identifying the run would be greatly appreciated

I'm hoping to get some help ID-ing these swoosh stamp bad boys. I've got an Aviar and an Eagle. Are these from the oft-referenced swoosh stamp final CE run? Neither have patent numbers on the bottom, but the Eagle is fingerprinty like CE. The Aviar less so, but I suppose it could be a CE blend. Any experts willing to weigh in?

They should have patent numbers. No patent numbers means they are about a decade too new for CE.

Also the swish logo was tweaked a bit, that's the current logo. In the original swish logo, "Disc Golf" started under the second N in Innova. Those discs are from this decade sometime.

Awesome info. Beefheart quotes + thorough explanations worthy of Antiques Roadshow = one very happy poster. Thanks Three Putt!

Didn't the last run of CE have it stamped in the center too?

I found one of these and asked about it once and was told they were sold as Eagle+ I have no idea if that's true or not, but it's what I was told.

If it’s the PLUS mold the rim will angle out on the underside, compared to most that are closer to vertical inside.

It pretty much makes discs FAKE overstable by coming out of the hand differently. As an added bonus it’ll throw your snap timing off with your other regular discs when you go back to them.

Innova tricked a lot of people into buying this garbage on Rocs and TBs before they discontinued it. Not this guy tho

So do I understand correctly that you were/are a big plus mold supporter?
