Not a Roc. Can't speak for how wide the diameter is, but pretty sure it is an Aviar. Aviars are not usually penned with the disc mold on the bottom, just the weight (just like this disc). My guess is the weight actually says 175, but the writing is so bad I can see it being mistaken for 178.

Thanks ran into a group on the next course I played. Held it next to an Avair and pretty sure you're correct. I'm used to my P4 having almost vertical sides thought it was a bit sharp for a putter but I'm getting pretty good at being wrong.

Yeah, the PA4, Magic, and others like those two feel very different from most traditional putters. Not sure what you were planning on doing with this disc, but I would recommend throwing it off the tee to see how it flies. Of course you could always find someone who likes Aviars and trade it (it isn't really worth anything special other than having that cool Halloween stamp).

Can someone tell me when Innova stopped using the double circle stamp? A friend recently gave me the Polecat in the photo. I have some others that are probably 12-14 years old that don't have the double circle. Disc has "PDGA approved golf disc 1994" on the stamp. I was just curious, thanks in advance.

I'm not sure what a double circle stamp is. That is usually just called a circle stamp. If that is what you mean, the first of the DX discs without the circle stamps that I got arrived in the Spring of 2000. I would still get circle stamped discs in 2000 as well, but I always assumed they were old stock.

Thanks for the reply, I thought it might be sometime around the early 2000's. I think I've always called it a double circle stamp, but thank you for letting me know I've been calling it the wrong thingthis whole time, lol. I know I heard it called that somewhere, I guess I got punked.

Maybe they were referring to a misprint double stamp?..

Could be that, or I might have just went with it because of the 2 circles in the stamp.
