The 44 was basically a Viper.

I don't have any 78's anymore, and I exorcised my house of any and all 86's this past year. The damn things kept ending up back in my bag, which was bad news for me. To finally put an end to it, they had to GO!

When Kransco sold Wham-O to Mattel, all the old Frisbee guys like Stork Roddick left the company. Some new golf discs came out, which went away from the traditional Frisbee method of numbering the molds. This one was called the Voyager.
Image
It's some sort of small-diameter driver. There was also a Voyager II. I really have no idea what the difference between the two were. An Internet search said the Voyager was made from the Polaris LS mold and the Voyager II was from the Polaris LF mold, but who knows?

This was a mid called the Apollo.
Image
My buddy said these were the same as the 78's. There was also a Gemini, which was a putter.

This is a Proto Apache from Gateway.
Image
The plastic is very speckled and feels a lot like Cyclone plastic.

A friend of mine gave me this disc for my collection. I really don't know if it's really "vintage" but working stiff said it's vintage enough for this thread 8)

It's an 86 softie with the Bogie Beater stamp. Add me to the list of fans of the old stamps. I really wish they got creative and "in your face" with stamps again.

We need to show some respect for the Big D!

This is a Deuce. The first big Discraft golf disc was the Phantom, which was retooled several times. Basically this is the end of the line for the Phantom.

When I started playing Discraft had six golf discs in their line-up. They really did not have a putter unless you count a disc like a sky-streak as a putter. The Deuce was a turnover mid range and approach disc. Their best mid-range was a slightly overstable disc called the Vortex. I think it was re-tooled at some point and released in Cyclone plastic, which is the version I have.
Image
I always like the stamp.

The big Discraft driver was the Eclipse. There was already an original stamp posted. This is the later stamp, which is pretty much how it looks today.
Image
I like this stamp. It's a glow Eclipse.

This is a terrible picture, but this was a big Discraft Driver in the early 90's called the Shadow.
Image
There was also a more overstable Shadow called a Shadow Plus, but I don't have one.

And finally, the Marauder.
Image
From least to most overstable, they were Eclipse-Tracer-Shadow-Marauder. All of them were big diameter discs, 22.0 cm or more.

The first real putter Discraft had was the Magnet.
Image
I wasn't going to post the Magnet, as it really hasn't changed. I just thought I'd show you the underside for fun. It looks like when I first tried the Magnet and was writing my info on the bottom, I really wasn't digging this disc.
