Default Sending Out an SOS

SOS backstory here.

TL;DR version: Millennium made a PD-like driver (think Valk-X) that was never submitted to the PDGA for approval yet a bunch leaked out and it got generally positive reviews. Cos of the illegality of the disc, Millennium has said that it won't get produced.

Seems like a shame and one of the weirder stories I've come across. What's really stopping Millennium from making it or another company from trying to clone it?

I've got one of these. Tbird sent it to me. Heck of a cool disc. Out of the box, sits right between and Orion LF and M Orion LS. Probably a little closer to the LF. I don't think I'd call it a PD though. A fresh beefy LF is much closer to a PD.

While we are at it, we probably ought to talk about the Orion LR as well. Although very few of those made it out to the public.

The OLR was the precursor to the Roadrunner correct?

They're ubiquitous. They're labeled "TB" on the bottom nowadays.

Man, the TeeBird preceded the JLS. JLS stole its top. But yeah, the JLF was supposed to be a much more overstable counterpart for the JLS. I don't know why they killed it off. Makes me sad.

Who knows what might happen with the Mill/ Hyzerbomb partnership. They already stock beadless Rhynos and Gators...

Kinda an " it would be cool if they..." situation.
