Sirius and Q will be more like a shorter Teebird.

IMO base (which is similar to Pro plastic) is what makes my Polaris LS a Polaris LS. There is no other disc in my bag that will go further with accuracy on a stand still throw. That said, I have been tempted to try one in Sirius to see if there is a place for it.

Took the base Polaris I had out yesterday. I had only thrown it a few times a year or so ago. That disc is just a laser out to 310-320.

Slight necro-bump here, but I found a Polaris LS in the drink a couple weeks ago looking for one of my discs. No name or number so I held on to it. Looked old and because it's base plastic, I wrote it off, assuming it would be flip-city.

Well I bagged it today on a whim, and man this thing is a laser beam. I mean, easy 325, maybe up to 340 or so on a frozen rope. I was super impressed.

The run number indicates that it's run 1.23. It is pretty darn flat, flight plate slightly caved in. Not sure if its time in the water did anything to it or if that's how these are supposed to fly, but this is what I wanted my FDs and TLs to be. If this laser beam characteristic is pretty consistent with this mold and this plastic, then I'll be buying some more. Any info or things to look for on this mold is appreciated!

They're pretty neat, eh? You'd love the Orion LS too. It's the same magic with an extra 50ft

They are neat indeed. I'll have to look into the OLS.

How are the other PLS in star and champ varieties? I imagine they'd have more stability, which could make for a fantastic fairway cycle (which is the most in-flux part of my bag at the moment).

And that is where you hit a roadblock with the PLS. The flight and characteristics are surprising similar across pro, champ, and star. The mold is more dependent on PLH, so if you'd want to flesh out a cycle it's a tough task.

I pair the PLS cycle with an Eagle cycle.

I have a sparkle champ PLS and it is definitely more Teebird like than the base plastic. Not sure it is a good cycle though as it is definitely shorter than the base.

My base PLS get squirrely around 320-330. Still fine to throw if I don't need them to fade back. There are other discs I like better for the stability/speed you are looking at. Gazelles come to mind, as well as the circle stamp cheetahs.

Registered to make this post once I found this. I bought a bag full of discs from a thrift shop for 8 bucks here recently and inside was this disc. Stamped 1996. Also has 1.20 stamped on top, not sure what that indicates. Disc looked to have never been thrown.

My go to driver is a westside northman in VIP plastic. Nice and broken in I can get it to do what I want for the most part. However on a whim I wanted to see what this brand new 24 year old disc could do and wow. This thing is an absolute gem of a disc. Thing flies on rails. Was super impressed.

The 1.2 has to do with the run number. I bought mine around 7 years ago and it is a 1.25 (bought at a retail store, I think it was Academy), so you may be able to infer some age from that. I don't think that Millennium was around in '96 but I could be wrong. You can check the PDGA website for their chart on what year every disc was approved for play. That might be useful information for you regarding this disc.

The one that I bought as a backup around 4 or 5 years ago is a 1.31 and I have not thrown it to see if there is any appreciable difference. I hope it didn't change any because I agree with you on this amazing disc. Turns out it is the furthest throwing disc from a standstill that I have in my bag, and super straight.

You didn't say what plastic but I assume it's millennium (which is very much like Innova Pro plastic from around the same era). I love that plastic. It has the glide of Innova DX but doesn't change as quickly.
