By the time Millennium came out in the mid 90's, we were already in the "this Whippet isn't as stable as my old Whippet" phase. They labeled the discs with run numbers, so if you liked a 1.8 and not a 1.12 you could look for the 1.8's and they would be easy to find. The first number is the mold. The Polaris LS is still using the original mold so that number is "1." The second number is the run number.

In theory, anyway. Millennium got lazy and wasn't really good about updating the stamps, so sometimes the run number overlaps multiple runs. At any rate you know the 1.10's are a lot older than the 1.23's.

I saw on the Innova Pro Store that they have a Champion Cobra that says it is the Ontario Mold. Can someone tell me what the differences would be in this compared to a non Ontario mold?

Default JLS question

I have these 4 disc. 3 of them have numbers, but the green one has none, what can anyone tell about that fact. The back side flight plate lettering is the same on all disc.

Thanks.

The run number thing was inconsistent from the start. The EXP1 started out without run numbers. I never did see an M Sentinel with run numbers. Sometimes they would disappear, then come back. No real explanation for it, other than Millennium sucked at updating the run numbers.

The Ontario mold was the basic Cobra mold for over 15 years. It fades harder, gives you more of the true "S" flight.

FWIW, they put that disc into regular production; it's the King Cobra.

Figured this would be a good place to ask rather than starting a thread.

Do some of the Innova molds still have the patent numbers on them? I have a couple of KC Rocs and a Star FB I purchased new this winter that do not look to be that old yet still have the patent numbers under the plate.

I also have a 12x KC Roc that has the "Multi-Purpose" stamp, anyone know how old these are or when they changed over to Mid-Range?

The last time I bought a Rancho Roc that patent number was still there. Maybe old stock? Maybe they never removed it?
