A DGA mold I mentioned earlier I now know the Discraft disc is not, SP has shiny flecks in the plastic and SP had much earlier in 2000's when SP first came out a true Shimmer to the plastic something that I do not see in that disc.
I have no idea if the Glide has a bead or not, and I'm holding one in my hand right now.

With the Champ/Z-type plastics, the plastic really packs out a mold and shows the mold details (think record top; you never got details like a record top with DX plastic.) The plastic is also that translucent stuff you can peer into and see more than if you were holding a base plastic disc. So the Glide has...something. Possibly a microbead. Possibly just a somewhat uneven spot where the core and wing mold parts come together so that there is a little odd feeling right there. Probably if the Glide was run in Pro D you would never even notice it; the plastic would shrink a bit, smooth over that section with an opaque plastic and we would say it's clearly a beadless disc. But, it's a Z disc. So it might be beadless with a little molding imperfection or it might have a microbead; results inconclusive.

At any rate, it does not have a big bead.

Any idea what this disc is? Or know anything about its history? The Stamp is for the Mid-Atlantic Disc Club 2005 World Tour. I was gifted a bag of abandoned discs. Innova disc. DX plastic.

Default Another mystery?

There is zero information stamped into this. The only info is hand written on the underside. Guesses?

I've seen that stamp before but I can't place where.

My first thought based on the initials is a Gateway Diamond Element, but that doesn't look like Diamond plastic, nor does it look like a midrange. I'm stumped.

I agree and because it's Gateway, you're probably correct.

That's a "lotus" stamp that Gateway uses a lot; I've seen it on several molds. D EL should be Diamond Element as has been mentioned. It doesn't really look like Diamond plastic as has been mentioned. That's all I got.

I've heard back from Gateway and that disc, is indeed, a Gateway Diamond Element!
Thanks everyone!
