For sure blame the disc, that's what I do...

Kidding.

Someone mentioned earlier. It's a factory second. I've had some "flashing" knightmares come from the innova factory store. That's probably it. I've had some so bad, didn't throw them, returned them, but I'd have bet money they would have flown not as intended.

Yeah, I'm thinking the guy that initials the mold on the discs didn't have his coffee yet before that one got to him. I can't see a bead at all in the pics provided.

You can get that with the regular production discs made in certain plastics and with a few molds as well. Big one was the Star Shark unless they finally ran out of the No flight number version of that disc.

If they tell you "that's why it's a factory second" that's unfortunate, that's what they told me. Those should really be recycled. It's not a cosmetic flaw, it affects flight.

I hope they don't say that. The description in the store says they are "cosmetically flawed discs"

I picked up two of these about a year and a half ago. They both turn and burn on my forehand. I suspected they were lemons but this confirms it. I'll going to seek out someone with a different run and try those before buying any more

Edit: the ones i got were not F2s so i don't think that's your problem
