What is this disc I found? I thought it looked like a Teebird but I don't know. Anyone got any good leads?

Look at that disc in the right light and you'll be able to read the wiped-off stamp. Looks like an Eagle or Teebird.

That is the stamp. I looked at it in the light, there's nothing there. There's not even a trace of the penned initials on the back. There are no other markings on this disc

Interesting. I've never seen a disc with just the Innova logo on it. I have seen instances where people will take acetone and wipe part of the stamp.

I guess the best thing you can do is compare that disc with an Eagle or Teebird and see which looks closest.

Yea, I thought it was weird too. I mean, I literally just saw a wiped disc a couple days ago and you could definitely see the ghost of the stamp. This disc is all by its lonesome.

Thanks for your help! I have a Teebird but not an Eagle. Maybe I'll visit the store

I think that's a Teebird. The only difference betwen the Eagle-x and the Teebird is the curvature in the top of the flight plate as it approaches the wing. The Teebird has a more pronounced curve whereas the Eagle top is more flat/straight as it approaches the edge. Other than that, the two discs are nearly indistinguishable.

Doesn't really look like a Roc rim... maybe a Coyote?

FUN FACT: The Eagle/Teebird release was when Innova started putting mold initials on discs. Even the guys who made them couldn't tell a stack of blanks apart with any sort of accuracy, they are that close.
