I just did a visual inspection with my beady little eyeballs, and it looks like that's the case.

I was probably the one that wrote that originally. I have a few 4x that are "classic mold", but I got them at USDGC where I was able to pick them out, and at the time I was just looking for stiffer ones. Anyway in general it does seem to be the case. You can tell by comparing the under sides of each one. Also, just got an XT aviar for free yesterday and it also seems to be the classic mold.

McPros have always been the PnA mold. The classic aviar has a more rounded lower wing and it would be obvious to anyone if they were using that mold for the McPros. Also, I don't know why anyone thinks that McPros are stiffer than KC Pro. They are going to vary a bit from disc to disc, but they are the exact same plastic.

I figured there was different tooling

There is different tooling. Earlier runs have tooling identical to classics. Newer runs have tooling identical to pna's.

Please provide an image showing this difference between molds. I am not seeing this. Also havent seen any white mcpro aviar look anything like a white kc pro disc. If they are the same plastic, why arent these identical? I have boxes of mcpros and kc pro's backing this up.

I don't know man. I have some Kc Pros in identical white plastic, and I also have some pink KC Pros that are identical to the pink McPros. They feel and look exactly the same in terms of plastic. That was the whole point of McPros in the first place. Just running the PnA mold in KC Pro material.

As far as the classic aviar tooling, that might be. That would be the flightplate part of the mold, which is probably interchangeable with different lower wings. My only point is that they have never used the classic aviar lower wing on McPro aviars. It has always been the PnA mold shape.

McPro IS basically KC Pro, just re-branded.
