Wish that was my case. Only store that ever sold them closed down a year ago. That's where I got my first QOLFs.

They sell Millennium discs in Academy stores where I am, so I've been trying them out slowly. Just got a Millennium JLS that I'm liking so far. It's one of the few drivers that I can forehand and backhand about equally. I get more s curves throwing it forehand, but it has enough stability to almost always come back.

The way they do it is fine, but i think they're discouraging the average consumer. If i don't know anything about discing, i'm getting the one that catches my eye or has a name i remember.

It's fine for hardcores, you gotta look at it from a newby perspective. This is why they don't have the following, they lose the consumer as soon as he steps in the door
Most of those acronyms are just the acronyms for them. OLF = Orion Long Fade, and it says that on the disc itself (or at least all the discs had names in the original Millennium plastic). Millennium was also originally created to capture the market segment that didn't want to throw Innova because Innova was "The Man". Translation: its purpose was originally to be like the emo punk band that has indie appeal to kids but is really put out by contracting with a huge corporation. Hope my explanation made sense.

The standard stamps on Sirius and Millennium plastics are great in my opinion, but all of the Q-plastic stamps SUCK!!! The S/M plastic stamps have astronomical themes, while the theme for Q-plastic is a big 'Q' followed by the name or acronym, like QOLF, QOLS, QMS, etc. And often those don't even mention the actual name (ie: QMS = Aurora in Q plastic).

Mill rarely does marketing but they recently got new owners and things are looking up for the company - the Quasar and Astra are the first new molds from them since like 2006. Previously, the only juice coming from Millennium were the new runs of Omega Supersofts, since they're basically selling complete runs of Supersofts (1.26 was the first R-Pro run, 1.30 is the current run).

I exchanged emails with the Millennium guys when they said the EXP1 was available in all of their plastics. They corrected the web site and told me in their emailed reply that it would NEVER happen. (I want one in sirius plastic). What a shame.

I have some experience with a quasar and my buddy throws it quite a bit. He says the closest thing it comes to for him is a boss. Seems pretty stable. It will not flip over on you.

Quasar throws at 0:53, 1:26, 2:48 and 4:00. Nothing special but you can see its not a total meathook or anything.
