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

You got some sweet CE man.


It's made its way into my bag......its a lil less flippy than my yellow QJ....

Mike, I think I was so ovewrwhelmed by your CE plastic that I was remiss in not mentioning the Wham-o 70 mold and factored Stingrays. Those are sweet! And I've never seen a first run Stingray. I love the Champion Star stamp.

I love the spot for the player's name on those Stingrays.

New Years Eve...11:30ish...I got nothing better than to post more pictures of discs!

I'll unload another batch of Texas golf discs. This time lets look at some old Millennium discs. This one is a Tachyon LF 2.2.
Image
The Tachyon LF was really close to the Viper. The mold kept changing, but for me all of them were pretty much Viper-clones. This one is a Tachyon LF 3.1 from the '96 KC Wide Open. In '96 this was way cool...Rick had the pull to always have the newest stuff at his tournaments.
Image
This one is a Tachyon LF 4.1. These were pigs...the poor mans Metalhead Viper.
Image
If you notice, this one has a pink ring around it on the top...a warning to any would-be golf disc collectors, the dye from a pink Tournament Plastic Cyclone will bleed into the disc underneath it! :oops:

The Raven-ish companion to the Tachyon LF was the Tachyon LS. This one is a 1.1.
Image
For some reason all of the Tachyon stamps always said "prototype" even when they had been out for a while. I have no idea why.

This one is a Tachyon LS 2.1.
Image
The Tachyons were the first Millennium discs, but they were short lived. The big diameter driver was on the way out.

An Omega Driver 1.2.
Image
These were pretty popular until the KC Avairs came out. Then you couldn't give them away.

An Omega Supersoft 1.8. I was pretty surprised that a 1.8 was as old a one as I had. Most of mine were 1.10's! I must have showed up at the Omega Supersoft party late!

An Omega AP 1.1. I showed up on-time for that party!
Image
The 1.1's and 1.2's had the two-color stamps, put starting with the 1.3's they only used one-color stamps. We had a lot of problems selling the 1.3's, as people thought they were misprints and wanted a discount.
Image
I liked the AP's a lot, they were my favorite of the Omega line-up. They were really hard to sell since they were really close to the Aviar Putt and Approach at that time, and the Aviar P & A was $ 3.00 cheaper.
