I think they did put on the stamp for each mold that it was a 1R McBeth signature.

I didn't say I liked it, but they have also done 2nd First Runs, 10 year first runs, and other weird stuff, so I can't say I'm surprised in any way.

All I can say is that they know their customers and market appropriately.

My understanding was that the "4 claws" were simply a hype thing as the "first run" of discraft discs stamped with his name, and now we have the normal production runs with his name simply added to the stamp?

Then 5 claws were more of a "celebration" of his 5th worlds win before, again, going back to the normal production run stamps.

[edit]: basically, people are just paying for the stamp, as many of the "production" run and "FR 4 claws" were the same run, but shared different stamps.

Just commenting on the silliness in general.

I'm a Discraft customer and all I want for Christmas is some more black JB Roaches, preferably not a limited Bro-D run that he sells on his facebook fan page.

What about these 4 claw marks drawn by the man himself?

Im looking over the new esp force stock on ebay. The colors are pretty awesome.

Makes me wonder why discrafts stock swirly esp is 15$ and innovas halo is 30$?

I would say they are pretty similar. Jus sayin

On a side note, I put a Mantis back in the bag and forgot how much I love that mold. Apparently there's a shortage on bigZ though, as I understand from our local pro shop?
