Mystery disc identification?

Postby BHW » Tue Nov 21, 2006 12:10 pm

Picked this up from the used disc bin at a local store. It's a Gateway, that's all I now....I'm not familiar with their discs. On the bottom it just says "Proto Edge 167".

IIRC, the Edge was an early prototype of what's now either the Spirit or Speed Demon. I'd expect it to be fast and very overstable.

Looks like a spirit bottom, and a spirit top. In fact it reminds me of a spirit.

Thanks for the help guys.

Great, just what I need, a Whippet style disc! :roll:

Oh well, it looked interesting. I need to post a trade/sell list.

It will be quite a bit faster than a Whippet. It's closer to a Firebird or Predator.

the edge = speed demon.

what you have is likely the original mold in h plastic. it got retooled like 10 times.

The plastic is really smooth and shiny, but flexible...sorta similar to Star...but shinier, is that a word?
