The worse flashing left on discs were old: 2001 CE Rocs. It was probably a good 1/8"+ on the outer rim. You had to take a knife to them before you could thrown them.

Then Rubbermaid decided to change the formula for their pellets and CE went bye-bye.
So I had the right idea trying to fling the tops of my containers across the room the whole time.

Yes. In most companies, the sprue is what most call the nipple on the underside in the middle of the disc. MVP has flashing on their core. It's just conveniently hidden by the overmold, and their flashing on the overmold isn't always cleanly removed.

I'm actually more comfortable with excessive flashing. It's easily removed if it's a problem. I recently bought a couple of the last Beetles I could find on sale, and the flashing on the wing is really minute, but it's super sharp. Just tossing it up and down on the couch, I thought I got the equivalent of a paper cut. No thanks!

No recent experience, but when I tried to replace my 2nd run ion, the newer run ion had horrible flashing. Really uncomfortable to grip. This was at least 5 years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if their quality control has improved since.

Sprue: noun / a channel through which molten metal or plastic is poured into a mold.

it is also the name of the leftover material from molding processes.
