I have a disc that I got in a trade. It's a Champ plastic disc that a guy said was an "overstable mid" but I could tell from the photo was a driver of some sort. Now that I have the disc in hand I'm 100% that this disc is a Q Polaris LS. It is cloudy and fingerprinty, which to me would indicate that it is an old disc. It also has the patent number, which may or may not be important as I haven't seen a Polaris LS in years so I don't know if the patent number was scrubbed off it or not.

Anyway, here is the confusing thing: The stamp has a globe on it with "I Fling Plastic, Watertown WI" on one side and "Ethiopian Disc Golf, Asosa Ethiopia" on the other with #growthesport under it. The Ethiopian Disc Golf logo has "EST. 2016" on it. So the stamp is no older that 2016, but the disc looks 15 years old.

I mean I know you can get old stock discs to stamp, but 10 year-old discs? Anybody know anything about these?

The fact that the disc is fingerprinty shows its at least 10 years old. Is the Ethiopian stamp in good shape? Are you sure it doesn't say 2006 instead? The only disc Innova makes that even reminds of a QJLS in looks would be a champion Leopard.

The stamp is clean and clearly says 2016. The disc is no-questions-asked 100% a Q Polaris LS. I Fling Plastic is John Luetzow's shop, he is a big Millennium guy so maybe he had old stock PLS lying around to stamp?

Lol, the guy I got the disc from posted a picture of the discs he was selling on a Millennium facebook group and John Luetzow noticed the disc in the picture. I guess they were fundraiser discs, and he said the discs he used were in a warehouse from a 2003 or 2004 run. So I guess it's as simple as that.

I have an Emac Truth I just bought in a Pearly White color. Is the Bar stamp when it just has the name and the player image on it? If so, what is the difference between a Bar Stamp Disc and a regular stamp?

Mine looks like this. It isn't really see through and don't think it glows. Would this be Fuzion?

Yes John does get New Old Stock from Millennium for fundraisers. I just got a new millennium first-run run 2005 "SOF" which I assume is a Sirius Orion LF.

I also got a new Gateway midrange marked DSH, anyone know what that is? Nice grippy plastic.

I can post a pic later if need be, but I just came across a World's Biggest Disc Golf Weekend (2014) stamped disc that I can't seem to ID. It has Innova tooling and the initials 'AST' penned on the bottom. Holler if a pic is necessary, thanks!

P.S. It's a driver probably speed 9 or so.

D would be Diamond, which is the Champ-ish plastic type they have. SH would be Shaman, which is a low-profile putter with the Magic wing. None of which makes any sense for a grippy midrange. So...pics or it didn't happen.

Millennium Astra? Just a wild guess based on the letters... Does it have the Vulcan/Archon bevel to the topside of the wing? never thrown one myself but a buddy had an Astra and iirc, it has the Archon top piece...
