Old Valk?

Postby Fightingthetide » Thu May 22, 2014 11:05 am

I'm travelling to see family and stopped in a PIAS to see what they had. Found what I think is an older Valk. Nothing is legible where the factory worker would have marked it. There are patent numbers, the old school *INNOVA FACTORY SECOND* stamp, and its flat with a zipper top. Looks like three or more people have owned it, but it's an 8/10 if you don't count the ink under the rim and the flight plate.

It looks like a Valk to me. I can't get a good profile shot. Assuming it is a Valk, is there a way to tell which run this is from?

Well all I know is that for all innova discs, except for a few putters, the patent number is exactly the same.

You can measure it and if the rim is 1.9cm you can bet it's a Valkyrie or a Viking.

not sure how to tell what run it is from. I've been playing for a long time,but I never really kept up with different runs when I first started. I'm sure there are others who would know more than me.

"If it's around 1.9 cm"... I've measured Destroyers to be anywhere from 21.0 to 21.3 cm depending on the run and the plastic.

Well I don't have calipers. I'm going off past experience with Valkyries, Beasts, etc.

Can this be worth more than 10 bucks? It feels like an old 11x Champ Teebird.

Might be worth more than $10, but less than $20. Should be a great thrower, though.

Yeah, it's a great thrower for sure. I'll probably end up keeping it. Just wanted to make sure I didn't have anything rare on my hands. I'm not up to date on stuff like that these days.

Did I mean to say 19.0? I probably worded that wrong. I get all those numbers jumbled up a lot

Nah, I made a mistake, meant to write 2.1-2.3, not 21.0 to 21.3. I guess I was thinking of the diameter (21.2 cm) instead of the rim width (2.2 cm) for some reason. 1.9 cm is exactly right according to spec, but there can be so much variance in the discs that it could still possibly be a Valk even at 18 or 20. =)
