Didn't even think to look there. Thanks for looking but I will probably just grab one tomorrow and wipe it.

I see an over priced Warlock. That is what the mold looks like to me and yes you can find plastic for the Warlock mold that is very similar to a Rubber Tuff plastic that Discraft made for a limited Ledgestone run of putters but as a production run.

Maybe a faster wear and tear is acceptable?
Sound like the old mid 2000's blend that the Discraft workers fixed when re-releasing the plastic again as Jawbraker. The old burst style plastic would peel even if people did not touch the disc ever, the plastic would just do that naturally on its own as people found out the two plastics were not made to bond correctly. Fourtunaly for one guy the Soft X Challenger came out to replace his other burst version that was becoming illegal with the amount of wear due to the peeling after a single season of moderate use playing 2-3 time a week and practice putting on about 3 other days for about 1/2 to 1 hour each time. Another guy was going to sell his burst type plastic Focus, he bought online did not have any hands touch disc after he got the disc the the disc that then got sealed disc in a plastic Ziplock bag that he squished out all of the air too and the disc still started peeling but not the fuzzy that the other guys disc had.

Probably, or just flattening a Chally SS

I know superfans want to believe she was in the factory with a hammer and tongs forging some brand new disc...but more than likely that started with an existing design and just tweaked it.

I don’t think anyone is questioning this but it isn’t just a flattened chally ss. Early reviews seem to believe it has the top of the roach and the bottom of the ss then tweaked to her liking from there. She did however also create the plastic blend she wanted as well just like Paul did. Kind of the beauty about a golf disc and injection molding, there are a lot of different combinations you can make if you already have a large selection of molds to choose from. The Luna was created the same way I’m sure.

Quit smoking the plastic shavings from the DC factory, bruh. They didn't create shixt, at most they were involved in the selection of the plastic and gave input about their preferences.

Who **** in your coffee this morning? Last I checked you don’t work at the factory, neither do I but isn’t that part of the fun of analyzing discs like this? Take a chill pill
