Before there was beveled edged discs and a zillion different models of golf plastic,
there was the Night Flyer and the Midnight Flyer. Wham-O discovered by injecting
glow plastic in their original molds that the discs became much heavier and thus
flew further. The numbers were like numbers they put on golf balls to help players
distinguish each others discs on the course because they all looked the same.
This very rare Night Flyer golf disc has Disc Golf Association hot-stamp with
no indication of Wham-O on the disc except for the raised letters on the underside.
The copy write is 1975. This is pre-Midnight Flyer. As the story goes, Wham-O
had to change the name from Night Flyer because someone else had the trademark. This is the original 40 mold. This disc mold was sold in stores as the World
Class 119 gram disc. 127 grams, but the weight is not written on the disc. This
has been used but is in great condition.
