Hey, guys, I've got a buddy that lost his disc with no stamp. It was a clear green plastic driver that had raised letters inside the lip for grip purposes. The only other disc I've seen like this is my Buzz, but thats obviously a mid/putter. If anyone knows what this disc is, please let me know, thanks.

You just described about 10,000 discs.

Um, no. That is a patent for a beveled edge disc design that is now expired. Every disc golf disc made had to have that patent written somewhere on it until the patent expired.

Do you have an Xpress to compare it to? Discraft usually has their tooling marks inside the rim like that. A profile picture of the rim would be helpful.

I have some old Discraft discs with the old Discraft logo where the stamp has completely worn off. It didn't take much, since they just had a small Discraft stamp up top and a small stamp with the name of the disc at the bottom. A lot of Discraft Z plastic used to come out with that zipper top finish.

With the raised lettering inside the lip? For grip purposes? Which ones?

No lettering on the rim is for grip. It may be used by some for that, but it was not intended for that. It's called tooling. It sounds like a Discraft disc however, because Innova does not put the tooling on the rim. I actually can't think of another manufacturer that puts the tooling in the rim.

Thanks, I'll look into some of the Discraft stuff. I'll also research the tooling. I appreciate the help.

I say no. They came out too late to be CE. People jump all over me for that and call them a "CE blend" or "CE type" and say there HAS to be some CE mix to them. I don't know; I don't work at Innova and don't know what they put in them. All I know is they came out too late to be called CE.

Here is the thing: it doesn't matter. They are awesome. You don't have to come up with a half-baked CE claim because you can just say "Sanny Sentinel." Adding CE to that will not make it worth one more cent than just being a Sanny Sentinel already does. It is already a disc that you can't sell to somebody who just fell off the apple cart. It's Millennium, not Innova. It doesn't have a Champion Edition stamp. Dumb guy throwing around money isn’t going to know what it is and isn’t going to buy it. You already have to wait for somebody who knows what it is, and when you get the guy who knows what it is you will get the same price, CE or no CE. That guy already knows they are awesome.

Unless they are light, of course. If they are light, you are screwed. Sanny Sentinels are throwers, not collectors. Weight matters.
