Working Stiff, that is an awesome collection of Lightning plastic!!! Those all brought back memories! Even though I never threw most of them, I do recall most of the stamps.

Thanks for the great contribution to the thread!

OK, time for a few more Aviars...

This is the first Innova disc I ever bought.

Image

This one has a cool stamp (rainbow) along with the "DGA Factor IV" moniker. Can someone explain what the "DGA Factor IV" designation means?

Image

Again, another iteration of the Avair Putter. I think this one came after the "Hands" Aviar.

Image

Same disc but also with the "DGA Factor IV" designation.

DGA got innova discs and would shave down the bead or wing. They called this factoring. The bigger the factor the more was shaved off.

The biggest one I've seen was a factor 6 aviar that I traded to the disc golf sweeden guy. He's a member here on the board, mf1000ever or something close to that.

I knew they factored discs, but I never saw the stamp saying that it was factored. Cool Stuff!

Well, I cant go back as far as you geezers, but here's a couple more from my stash....

Here's an original gazelle and a newer one. You can tell they made the stamp to feature a more athletic gazelle :lol:
Image

Here's a "chains" aviar and a SE rhyno w/ dimple.
Image

Here's a Cobra and a classic cobra.
Image

Here's a couple that I managed to pry away from Working Stiff... Thanks again!

I'm not sure on all all the molds they factored, but I've seen Aviars, Vipers, Whippets, and Stingrays. I've never seen a Chains aviar factored, only the grid stamps

@mikesolt - dude, you have so much CE goodness I was almost tired of looking at it by the time I finished. (j/k) :lol: That was great. Thanks!

@roy - some sweet stuff there! Thanks for posting more pics!

@dgdave - hey, I never really noticed it, but the first Aviar "Chains" Putter I posted has a slightly different stamp than the other Aviar "Chains" stamps I've seen. It says "Aviar Putter" rather than just "Avair" and doesn't say "Putt and Approach." Can you shed any light on the different stamps?

Here is my only San Marino Roc. 178 grams and stiff as a board. :D

Image

And here is most of my Hammer collection.

Image

Image

I think the next two discs are Hammers, but I'm not entirely sure. Both of them have a wing profile that is just slightly different than the two Hammers above.

The "Putter" was the original stamp and I think only ran for about a year or so, then they changed it to the P&A after that. The "Putter" Is much more rare. I've only seen a handfull of those.

I may be wrong on this one, but that's what I've heard

That blue CE QJLS looks way cleaner than when I had it.

You got some sweet CE man.

Thanks, man. I think you are right about the order of the stamps. I looked and I have one other "Aviar Putter" stamped disc, but it is one I actually used for awhile and isn't pristine.

Well, on to some slightly faster stuff...

Starting with a couple of Cobras.

Image

Image

Followed by a Scorpion. I have several Scorps, but this one is the nicest. It has a really nice rainbow stamp.

Image

Here is a Viper.

Image

And finally followed up by what I think may be a proto Whippet. I compared it to an old, beat-up standard whippet I found and the profile looks the same except that the rim on the proto (if that's what it is) is just a little deeper.
