Innova also pushes crappy discs like the Destrulcan in 2011/2012 where 1,000's of Destroyers were made without Destroyer tops.



This is curious, as the Vulcan is 21.2 cm in diameter, and the Destroyer is 21.1 cm. How does this work?

Plastic goes in, disc comes out. You can't explain that.

My 10th Anniversary Midnight Buzzz, has the word "WASP" stamped on the inside of the rim. I'm emailing Discraft for answers on this one, cause the disc that is being used to celebrated 10 years of the Buzzz should probably not say "WASP" on it. Should it?


If I recall correctly, Discraft retooled the Buzz sometime between introduction and the 10 year anniversary. I.E., the Original Buzz is not the same as the present buzz. Additionally, I believe that the Wasp was introduced to retain the characteristics of the original buzz, including the original buzz's rim.

So, when it came time to release the 10th anniversary buzz, Discraft mated the Wasp bottom with the Buzz top, and whammo, you've got an original mold buzz, but with the Buzz name on it.

I believe all the 10th anniversary buzzes are stamped as Wasps on the rim. I'll have to check mine when I get home.

My Wasp and my Buzzzes have very different bottoms. The Wasp has a bead. Buzzz, no bead.

Mold spacers.

The wing mold generally makes the bead. The core for the Buzzz and Wasp was the same for a few runs.

Grammar is important. For example, capital letters can really help to differentiate between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse.
