I found a couple of the 1.8 micro-bead run QMSes while rummaging through boxes at my local shop. They are essentially what the Discmania MD2 was, before they switched that disc to a domey San Marino top. The c-line QMSd2 run 1.8. That's a mouth full. But a great disc.

I dropped all my old QMs, MD2s and MD3s for these. Amazing flight for sure. Can handle a ton of lines. Flex shots, hyzers, powered straight, forced turnover...does it all aside for a stable mid.
But please no one else buy them. I need more backups still.

Right there with you. Started stock piling the 1.8's. It's become my workhorse midrange.

I was in my local shop today looking to grab a 1.8 QMS I had sent earlier. It wasn’t there but they did have a handful of 2006 stamped Q’s with Ontario molding. Can any one chime in on how these fly compared to newer runs? They’re all orange and feel pretty good. Not sure if these are desirable, but I can proxy if anyone is interested. They had 5-6 of them.

The orange ontarios were awesome. Did they have sharp flashing?

Yes they did. They were all max weight I believe also. I hesitated because of the $20 price tag.

An inked 9/10 went for $22 on the collectors page. $20 is a good price.

Man some of these stamps are beautiful... I really like the concept of a space and constellation-themed lineup... why did they find it necessary to name half of the stuff ridiculous initialisms like QMS, OLF, etc. This combined with the lack of flight #s completely turned me off from millennium when I was starting out. Instead try just "The Aurora" and throw some dang flight #s on there like Discmania.

I want to feel like there's a foundation and framework for understanding laid out in front of me logically by the manufacturer.

Well there used to be two Auroras... the MS (midrange straight) and the MF (midrange fade), and multiple Orion for that matter (OLF, OLS, The rare OLR). So the acronyms really helped to clear things up. Not the greatest naming convention, but they make great discs. The OLF could be called the felcher and I would still bag multiple. I’d rather the company make good discs with crappy names over crappy discs with great names.
