Figured I would post this here first, if they don't move in a few days the rest is going to DGCR. I am moving some of the Millennium I have collected and stopped throwing. This is a very general list, but I figured I would let you fellow Millennium nuts get a stab at it first. I need to get some disc funds for my next team purchase.

FYI - pm'ing me first or saying dibs doesn't hold it

General list - might have more so ask if you want something else. OBO on all

140-150s is what im looking at.


Better late than never,... I LOVE my ZG Quasars. I throw them a ton. I stopped throwing the Scorpius it just didn't fit anywhere in my bag set up. It's a great disc, I just have no use for it.
One thing about the ZGQ I love, it reminds me smooth and steady and keeps me from over torque. If you put to much on it, it turns hard.

I still really like the SOLF for shorter control shots or even the QOLS. The Z-G Scorpius is my main sidearm disc. I also flick the lighter S Scorps. I lost my last S Scorp so I need to restock... The Q Scorp is a softer blend and I like it too. I use it for sidearm shots as well but it slips a bit in the colder weather, like we are having now.


HMMMM, I need to try it as a sidearm disc. Never thought about using it for that either. Thumbers and Sidearms...
Thanks for the idea Mark.

Even later here. ZGQ is like a faster longer QOLS which is even better driver than the SOLF 1.1 which is a great disc so each of those together=win. But that is only one winning combo and there are lots of variations in stability of the ZGQs so not all of them are so hot. The ones that are get familiarized to how they look and get back ups. The reason is say that is because they are golfable for me and give the easiest most controllable highest average distance of any disc. Despite the longest light Nuke throws going farther than the longest Quasar throws.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

About PLS- is it like a Leopard? or is it Teebird?

Which Millennium disc is similar to Leopard? JLS right?

According to Joe's Flight Chart (on GottaGoGottaThrow's web site) the PLS and Leopard are very similar.

The JLS should be longer.

Just my opinion here, but the MPLS is a better Leopard, and the QPLS is a better Teebird.

I ran across a nice situation in field practice last fall where i couldn't get any flipping at all from a Star Leopard and the Champ acted normally. The Star also fades earlier and more and is shorter. I have never thrown any kind of PLS so a better Leo description piqued my interest. Which flies farther, turns and fades less and has better wind beating abilities? Generally i try to use tackier discs so how do different plastics vary in PLSs and how tacky is the Q in a PLS compared to a QOLS? And how durable is the MPLS and how quickly does it break in? Based on MOLS durability i don't think it would last long on my rocky home course if i threw it there. Luckily i don't need such a long disc there other than maybe on one hole.

I carry both a leo and a couple of Mpls.

The mpls holds up nicely imo.

The leo is a line holding disc, the pls is a line shaping disc. The leo just doesn't fade for me, so the line I throw it on, it stays on. The pls always comes back for me at the end.

At the end of the day, I can throw pretty much any leo shot with the pls, but I can't throw the pls shots with the leo. I probably only need to carry the pls, but there are just times when the leo is what I have more confidence in.

It sounds like the MPLS would be the one i like the most out different plastics but the Star Leo i have is beefier than any Champs that i've had and can fade back from the mildest of annies so it can be a surgical tool of small sideways movements and it sounds that the MPLS can cover wider s-curves. But so can many others i'm not aware of the magnitude of the sideways movements the MPLS makes though so i have no idea just how predictable and large the fade is vs other discs such as Leos, the little more fading River or something beefier like the Teebird and the EX. Being M plastic the River will be slicker i presume so a switch to a tackier disc might be beneficial fir me but i think the Polaris is a slower and shorter disc and i've had overlap issues with Leos for the straightest performance out of a driver vs the River going farther almost as straight but more HSS thus more dependable unless it is compared to the non flipping Star that fades almost as much as the River but shorter so it is not as great as a tunnel lasering disc but still magnificient. At least it offers more safety margin against user error toward anny than champ Leos. I have no business throwing Pro and DX Leos in the changing winds around here.

It sounds like i need to get an MPLS to see what it does and then mull over the bag setup. Even though i love the Leo i have used mids and Rivers much more in the past two years and only on a few local anny holes and one tunnel would have liked the Leo better than the River. Considering the short tees and need for control it is good to disc up and power down on the short slick tees on those holes. And it is easier to turn the Leo without flexing back than the River on not max power shots for me. The MPLS makes things messier i'm afraid but it is a vital slot so that path needs to be explored.

Anyone get some MOLS lately? I went out and got a new one to beat up to eventually replace my roller MOLS, and I noticed the bottom marking was G4. I searched and noticed that G4 is very old way to mark MOLS, but I just bought this new from the shelf. Well, it's not unheard of to either have some really old stock Millennium discs in stores, or even that some old stock has been cleared from the factory and sent to retailers, so I'm wondering if they still use the G4 marking on fresh stock, or did I just stumble upon one of the old G4 OLS? And If I maybe should go back and snatch all the rest of the G4's they may or may not have there..

Dunno but my G4 165 MOLS broke in really quick and with minimal abuse and by a lot so i imagine it is roller material soon. Although i thought it rolled well enough when new.

OK Mellennium experts I got a quick JLS question. I've been throwing a JLS 1.17 as a compliment to my Teebirds, but my last one is broken in pretty good so I picked up a replacement. I bought a JLS 1.19 and it is super flexy, my 1.17 was almost too soft for me so I don't think I'm going to throw the 1.19 at all. I think I might just go Serious or Q but if I stay Millenium what run should I look for that is on the firmer side.

The G4 mold is the old plastic. Those were my favorites. Very grippy. You are a lucky man to have found them.

Sorry I missed this post. The 1st run SJLS was pretty stiff. I prefer the newer 2nd run as it's a bit softer and offers more grip for me. The QJLS will have a longer break in time and should be a bit more overstable than the SJLS. I carry them both.
