Is it a KC-CE blend or a SE blend? If its a real CT, I want it. I collect them and dont have a rainbow stamp.

Sup Chase? Came across a pro firebird, however it looks like champion plastic not pro. It is very transparent. Any idea? I can post a pic if needed. Thanks!

It was a short batch that was done around the same time as the " Pro Line " stuff. The Firebirds just got a Pro label. They are champion/ candy plastic and have good value.

Chase...as always your knowledge is greatly appreciated.

Concerning 10x KC pro rocs...is there an easy way to identify them if the labeling has been wiped clean and you can not see the 'shadowing' to discern if it says 'mid range stable driver'? I trust the guy but just want to make sure before spending the money. Don't know if the patent number was different or they were run in a certain factory as opposed to 11x runs and later...

Gratzi...

It's not mint but it's only been thrown a handful of times...I'd only be paying 40 for it...My original 10x is still in the bag after 7 years but it never hurts to have a replacement...I think you threw it at Waterworks once and offered to trade for it 8)

I'd snag it then. Yeah, I remember that for sure. I make offers for any used 10X I see, especially when I think the thrower may not know or appreciate their value/longevity. You have obviously figured it out. :D

Really, Im not sure. I look for the ones that have the sunken centers. There was something else about them, maybe the wing or something was different. Id search PDGA or Disc Golf Review or whaterver it is. I dont think its a bad price, if its one of the 18x.

How well does early pro plastic (pre Champion) hold value? It seems to auction at prices slightly lower than CE. I got mine for throwing anyways, just curious.
Jesus...maybe I should read, like, 5 posts ago.

I am assuming it's an X-Buzzz GT...and if so...you might get $5 out of it if you are lucky.



These things have sky-rocketed! If you still have it, sell that bitch.
