Only the pen marking on the back will properly ID the run. A 1.1 is marked "QOF" and a 1.2 is marked "QOLF". Same 3-4 letter difference in SOLFs. I believe the 1.1 S's also have that "zipper" top. At least mine do... 8)

The latest addition to my bag.

I found the AMF to be more stable than the AMS (duh), slower than the CE QMS, and less stable than my gummy QMS. Kind of an in-between.

And the latest addition to my collection.

Was not expecting to find something like this. A fellow golfer who knows I throw Mill picked up for me out of the blue.

They are domey but it is an even dome. Plastic has a good grip , not slick like some of the other stardust.

These are really fast, probably the fastest OLF I have ever thrown. They are bit straighter than the last run, showing more high speed turn, but they still have plenty of low speed fade. They get out really fast, and glide, and then just fade forward. The 1.3s show pretty good low speed fade especially on hyzers.

I just got some 1.3 Stardust QOLF's as well. Mine are 150's. Yes, they do have slightly more dome like you said. It's a softer blend of Q plastic which makes it grippier. Too bad we are getting a big snowstorm. It's going to be a while before I'll be able to throw them. :x

I also recieved some S-Scorpius tye-tyes. They are first runs but seem to have a slightly softer plastic. These are labeled SSRP while my older solid color ones are a bit harder and are labeled SSC. Interesting...

So what's a exp like after it's been beat up a little? Was thinking of picking one up, but the exp's I've felt have been made from some pretty malliable pro plastic, seems like they would just get beat up pretty quick and lose that stablility.
I would like your X-Wasps, please.

Unfortunately, they beat in real quick and go from overstable pig to dead straight after a few hard hits. The 1.6 & 1.7 CE ones will hold up but who wants to pay that kind of money for them. Plus they are too hard to find. I sold all of mine.

I have a few of the 1.7 CE type plastic. 2 in the blueberry color and 1 a bit brighter. What do you mean "that kind of money"??? I can find a replacement if they are going for big bucks.

I never much cared for the EXP1. (Blasphamy, I know... :lol: ) The CE's were the only ones worth having and they are so scarce. I can't justify anything over $20. I sold mine a while ago for $15-20 so I figured they are going for $25. I'm probably wrong. :oops:

25$ brand new to a internet educated buyer who really needs a backup. I still only see them going for 20 new and 12-15 used.

There was only one run of those; Ontario Roc top with a Stingray bevel. The next run of AMF was the 2.1 using the Rancho Roc top. The 2.1's were more stable. The 1.1's were really, really close to the AMS IMO.

The 2.1 is a lot of fun. Building up a nice stack. But I probably just need to throw my C-MD2s

The problem with the EXP1 from the get-go was that the Banshee and the Discraft Xtra were better discs in that slot, so at a time when there was really only four disc golf companies they had the third-best disc of it's type. The 1.7's got there in that they were flat and super beefy, but you can just get a Champ Banshee and save the money instead of rooting around for 1.7 EXP1's.

'cause I'm looking for the 1.7's and don't need the price going up...

I had a stack of 2.1's at one point. I couldn't sell one to save my life. Disc golfers are basically cheap and there were a couple of the Mill discs where the $10 vs $7 price difference really killed them. The Omega AP was one, the Aurora MF was another; why spend $10 for one when you can buy an Aviar or Roc for $7? Then the 8X KC Pro Roc came out and it was $10 PLUS the Sentinel came out...you just couldn't sell the damn Aurora MF's against that. I used to buy them to get them out of the inventory and throw them in the winter so I wouldn't shatter my Rocs. It was like the Moray; good discs that came out at the wrong time and just didn't sell.

Damn Factory Store needs to run some Star Morays.
