That almost looks like an Avenger or a Tracker... Maybe someone more familiar with Discraft can confirm/deny.

Does the embossed stamp on the back say anything about the disc?

Don't all Discraft discs have the mold name made into the mold on the inside rim? This disc is from 2016, so it should too. But I am not a Discraft expert at all.

All the newer Discraft discs have the name inside the rim. Just because this disc has a 2016 tourny stamp doesn't necessarily mean its a new disc though. It could have sat around somewhere for a while before being stamped.

I think thats annoying when you see tourny discs that are unidentifiable. Companies need to do something obvious to tell people what they're throwing. Lat 64, Dynamic, and Westside do it right by embossing the name of the disc on the underside.

Here is the only issue with the older Pro plastic. It's outer layer(skin) may peel at some point. I have seen this on a number of older Pro plastic disc and my beat-in Shark has started to shed a layer on the under side of the disc. Not sure why this happens other than plastics break down over time no matter how well you care for your discs. Older Pro just seems to shed skin sometimes.

Also, the disc is no longer made in that type plastic.

Does it have a patent number on the underside of the disc?

@PlasticThunder: No patent numbers.

Does that crosshatching go all around the rim? If so, It's a Discraft Impact. I can't tell from the picture if it goes all the way around or if it is a patent number cover, but it looks pretty wide to just be a patent number cover.

Edit: I guess the OP says 5", so that's not an Impact.

Edit edit: And the Impact crosshatching is on the other side of the wing. It's been a long time since I've seen an Impact.

Probably a Z Pred. There was a short time that they xxxxxed out the patent numbers before the mold was tooled. They are one of my favorite runs, I always look for the text with my fingers pre throw, those are even easier.

Post a profile picture and I can confirm that it is a Z predator

I scrolled further up and saw the wing picture. That is with 95% certainty a Z Predator.

I have a dozen pro sharks and I have never seen a Flight Numbered Pro shark. I wonder if they are bringing it back in that plastic. They obviously made a stamp for it. Is it ontario or rancho tooled?
