flashing has been removed by innova, gateway, discraft, latitude, etc etc

sometimes they are too bogged down or shitty in their production quality to remove the flashing. but they've all removed it at one point or another. it's a molding artifact that's not intended as part of the design. less fragile structures (beads & notches) are designed features. flash is not a design feature.

ok...please provide evidence of this statement of fact, from the manufacturers perspective.

Again, I have to agree. Btw Apoth, I've been known to argue for the sake of argument. My mother always says that I missed my calling and should have been an attorney. :lol: :lol: :lol: I'd love to have you dye a disc or two for me btw.

I found a 9.5/10 Star Boss that has the most insane flashing I've ever seen on any disc. I think I could measure it with a ruler.

I worked at a disc brand, and according to the owner and Dave D, flashing is a molding artifact. The 25-year old Aurora mold was redesigned and replaced because of the flashing it produced.

Zach, you obviously don't know what you're talking about. Please produce recordings (or any other evidence) of Dave D. talking about how flash is just a molding artifact.

one could argue that nobody has ever been mistakenly conceived since everyone knows babies are a bi product of sex and their very existence proves that it wasnt a mistake because both parents knew that it was part of the molding process

I've never seen, smelled, tasted, touched, or heard Apoths brain; Therefore, I can empirically deduce he does not in fact have one. Burden of proof falls upon you Apoth.

But srsly, nice trollin.
I am dumb.
