The Tachyons were the first Millennium discs, but they were short lived. The big diameter driver was on the way out.


I have a Cyclone with that stamp.

When life gives you lemons, stick them in the freezer for a few hours, then throw them back, 'cause they're like rocks, man.

Neither of the Aurora MF's had enough "F," so eventually they released the Sentinel.
Image
The 1.1 Sentinel's had "Limited Edition" on them. They said it was a one-off release, but I guess they decided to keep them in the line-up. Too bad for me...I believed they were going to disappear and bought a bunch. I still have a "LE" Sentinel in my bag today.

A Polaris LS 1.3.
Image
The Polaris used to come in a "nearly nude" version that was really popular. This is a nearly nude Polaris LS 1.2.

The Polaris LF had the same problem as the Aurora MF...not enough "F." Eventually they fixed this with the EXP 1.
Image
The EXP 1 did not have run numbers when it came out, so you will have to trust me that this one is a 1.1.

For the life of me, I can't get a good picture of this disc. It's a test run JLS 1.0.

Here is the regular first run of the JLS.
Image
This is another JLS with an old Ice Bowl stamp.

And that does it for my Millennium goodies.

Yeah, you see "National Doubles" stamps all over. They must over-order discs for that event like crazy!

Speaking of National Doubles stamps, I have quite a few from the 1991 Championship in Round Rock, Texas. I went and watched that tourney, and bought a bunch of plastic..

Here's Aviar Putter.

And an original Birdie (no thumbtrac).

Image

And a Barracuda.

Image

And a Scorpion.

Image

And a Ken Climo David Greenwell XD.

Image

And a Ken Climo David Greenwell Hammer. The stamp is hard to see in the pic because its real glittery. I retired this disc - it was my third ace and first and only righthanded ace. I learned to throw righthanded when I injured my left elbow.

Some odds and ends...

A Ching Tank. Basically it is a small-bead Rhyno.

A Ching Sniper. Apparently it is the same thing as an Innova Gremlin.
Image
Gateway totally ripped off this stamp for the Assassin.

A Ching Bomb. The Bomb was some sort of Banshee variant.

This disc used to be a Flathead Cyclone. USED to be. I left it under some other discs and the wing flattened out on top. Now it looks more like and X-Clone than a Cyclone.
Image
I never really collected discs, I just had a bunch that I never got around to throwing. So for a long time I did not store them correctly. You will notice some of them look F'ed up in one way or another. Not many of mine could pass as mint even though many of them have not been thrown.

OK, this is forcing me to think WAAAYYY back. This is a Wham-O 77. Basically it is a Stingray with grip rings on the flight plate.
Image
For a while a friend of mine and me went all Frisbee-geek and decided to throw Wham-O discs. I threw Stingrays, so I replaced them with 77's. He threw Cobra's and there was a Wham-O Cobra, I think it was the 78? I can't remember. Anyway, we threw them and thought we were cool.
