I don't think millennium ever said what the "J" stands for. I guess it kinda explains why there are a bunch of words that start with a "J" on the front of the disc.

(answer from John via email) :

We’re working on a faster version of the EXP. No plans to run that exact mold again in any material. So grab the existing ones while they last.

My apologies for the repost. JJ will be disappointed in the EXP not being produced anymore.

I'll add that the Banshee and EXP aren't the exact same mold, but the Banshee is the closest Innova disc in production.


Yeah, I definitely like the EXP mold more. I was just saying if ya lose all your spares, your closes would be the Banshee.

The standard JLS is probably my favorite driver of all time...but it breaks in too fast. The SJLS is a lot faster and more stable. I was wondering if this was intended or if it has been commented on by the designers, or if maybe there are plans for another run to be less highspeedstable /low speed overstable(flatter maybe?) I can throw a bit over 400' and I can throw my max weight SJLS with all my nuts on a hyzer flip line and I get a pretty straight S. I would love it if I were able to get it to turn and hold a turnover line (like I can with my max weight SOLS's). Maybe it will beat in to this point...but I am totally stupified by the stability of this disc!

How does a QJLS fly compared to the JLS or the SJLS?

I'd say it's more stable than the Mjls and a little slower than the Sjls. It's slightly larger in diameter, and the edge of the wing is more dull and rounded. It kind of reminds me of a champ teebird, but maybe a little bit slower.

it reminds me more of a champ leopard than a TL. It will turn some. The SJLS flys exactly like a z XL for me. Longer, faster, and more stable than the other JLS's. I carry a qjls and a standard J. The SJLS overlaps too much with my teebirds

Well, I just compared my Qjls to my Mjls and its slight larger in diameter. It's not larger by much, but enough to visually notice the size difference. Does this mean that I have a CE Qjls? Is there any way to tell by the stamp? The stamp is worn a bit and I can't find a version # on it, but I do know it was a colored stamp on top of a base silver stamp. Heres a high res picture of the disc if it helps: http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b370/Vengance97/100_1895.jpg (please ignore the mushroom and hemp leaf the previous owner drew with a sharpie)


I guess this turns into another question about the CE runs. How can we visually determine if the disc is the CE version aside from the model #. I saw there was a special stamping for the CE QMS, is it similar for the other CE runs. Or maybe if you can get pictures to show us exactly what one looks like, that would rock.
