PET is a plastic polymer, polyethylene something with a T. Usually made from recycled plastic bottles. My company makes rug fiber from it.

Wonder if that was the plastic they used?

Definitely PCT

Strange features with rings of micro beads before the big bead and the super prominent parting line.

I had my fun, gotta go..

That's definitely a Touch then. That's much better than I could've described the bead.

Oh yeah, they tried that weird multi-bead thing. Touch really was a good mold...

Found an old barstamped Archangel in good condition. A few other old stamps too, I think maybe my pias had somebody tut in a bunch of his old stuff at once. DX Gazelle with old circle stamp was the only think I actually picked up.

Very close... PET = Polyethylene Terephthalate
My company makes insulating films for power generation equipment out of PET...

Chemistry aside, I think the Touch actually reads PCT. So, I'm (also) guessing it means Proto-Cam Todd.

I liked the touch. Still have one proto and a liquid. The liquid was an amazing driving putter. A lot like a Proxy in flight. They never did fail in a grippy plastic I actually liked to putt with though.

Every time someone admits their past experience with Salient brand discs, it always feels a little cringy, like listening to someone state they were once a member of the kkk or something.


At least you are reformed now.

Just because Kilgus is a douche doesn't mean Salient didn't make at least one decent disc.

Not sure what it was called but that plastic the Prometheus came out in felt really good.
