Disc Golf United is one of THE best places (if not THE best place) to buy Innova Factory Seconds. Why? Because we’re the official online store for Innova East, which means we’re constantly updating our inventory with your favorite Innova disc models (even hard to find plastics), and we hand pick the coolest F2 stamps from the Innova East warehouses.

Terminology: F2 vs X-Out vs Misprint

Here’s a quick lesson on F2 lingo. Factory Second, F2, X-Out, and Misprint are often used interchangeably. But there are some differences. Factory Second and F2 are umbrella terms that encompass all discs not meeting manufacturer standards.

X Marks the Spot: The X-Out term is often linked to minor plastic defects happening on the production line. Many of these discs actually have a small “X” penned in the middle. In addition to that, these discs usually get a basic Innova X-Out stamp or an Innova F2 stamp. Other stamps have also been used in the past.

Photo: Below is an example of an X-out disc with a basic Innova F2 stamp.

Misprint discs primarily deal with discs postproduction during the hot stamping process, which utilizes heat and pressure to apply logos / images via foil onto discs. Hot stamping is a skilled craft and nearly impossible to perform without mistakes. When these stamping mistakes happen, the discs receive multiple stamps to denote their F2 status. Most of these discs do not have plastic imperfections.

Types of Defects Found in F2s

There are many reasons why a disc becomes a Factory Second. Let’s first start with the misprinted stamps since these are the most common F2’s we see at Innova East and Disc Golf United.

Misprint stamps

Like we mentioned earlier, applying a hot stamp to a disc is not an easy or automatic process. You may not realize this, but you only get one shot at stamping a disc cleanly. Most discs are stamped without a hitch, but mistakes do happen. Here are some common stamping issues that cause F2’s.

  • Dropout: Foil did not stick to a small area of the stamp design
  • Bridging: Separate design/illustration elements are fused together
  • Too much heat or force used: stamp is seared into plastic
  • Not enough heat or force used: stamp is only partially applied

Photo: Below is an example of a disc with stamp drop outs.

When a stamping issue happens, the disc is stamped again (in an obvious way) with the same or different stamp, and voilà a Misprint F2 is born. Common types of misprints are:

  • Multiple Stock stamps. Stock discs with their stock stamps are stamped the most, which means we get a bunch of discs with multiple stock stamps. An example would be a Star Mako3 disc with several “Star Mako3” stamps on the disc.

Photo: Below is a F2 Champion Roc3 with Multiple Stock stamps

  • Multiple Innova Custom Department stamps. One of our busiest departments at Innova East is the custom stamp department. All kinds of stamping jobs flow through custom including those for disc golf events, company logos, player fundraisers, and more. Custom makes their fair share of F2’s and DGU gets first dibs at them.
  • Multiple DGU Original stamps: One of the Innova Custom Department clients is us, DGU. So, whenever we place orders for awesome stamps like Frolf Loops, or the War Pig, or a host of other cool designs, we get those misprints as well.

Randomly Delicious! When it comes to F2 Misprints, some will only have two stamps. While others will have more. The number of stamps, type of stamps, placement of stamps, and color of stamps can range widely from one factory second disc to another.

X-Out Defects

All of Innova’s disc production takes place at Innova West in California. So, it makes sense that most of the plastic defect X-Outs produced are kept and sold there. However, Innova East and DGU still see a modest amount of plastic imperfection Xouts come our way.

Here are some common reasons for X-outs:

  • Scuffs
  • Scratches
  • Chips
  • Small bubbles inside the plastic
  • Small dimples
  • Chocolate chips (dark plastic flecks in plastic)
  • Minor gouge in rim

Photo: Below is an X-out with flecks in the rim and flight plate.

Let’s get this straight: Discs with only minor aesthetic flaws / disc imperfections are sold. If we wouldn’t throw it. We’re not gonna sell it.

Pros and Cons of F2s

Most everything about F2’s are positive, but there are a few drawbacks. Let’s take a look at each side here:

Pros

  • Great price
  • Most DGU F2’s are stamp misprints, which means there’s nothing wrong with the disc itself
  • Find models/plastics you can’t find elsewhere
  • Cool stamps you wouldn’t normally have access to

Cons

  • Model / Plastic type / Weight selection is limited.
  • Colors generally random
  • Stamps can be unpredictable
  • Disc pictures are normally not available.

No pictures? Here’s whyDue to the volume of F2s we release each week and the huge variety of stamps, it's simply not possible to take pictures of every single disc. However, you will see some pictures with our occasional Bulk F2 releases. Keep in mind that you can always send color preferences in our “Item Specific Notes” section of the item. Though we can’t guarantee a match, we’ll do our best to find it. Feel free to call us at 800-339-2259 or email us at [email protected] to see what colors we have.

F2s by Plastic Type

A lot of discs pass through the Innova East warehouses every year. Every Week. Every day. Disc Golf United has access to whatever factory seconds produced at Innova East or find their way to our warehouses.

Wacky F2 Video Previews

We like to have fun with our Seconds. And we like to have fun with our videos promoting the releases a day prior (on Wednesday). Here’s a look at one.

 

How DGU lists our F2’s for sale

There are two main ways that we list our Factory Seconds: F2 Specials and F2 Regulars.

F2 Specials

These discs have cool enough stamps to warrant a brief description in the item’s title (ex. F2 Star Mako3 – Hungry Looking Bigfoot stamps). Or, these discs have some other cool quality that deserves mention like swirly colors, a pop top, or a flat flight plate, etc. Since photos for each F2 are not possible, we do our best to provide a accurate description in the item's name. What’s a cool stamp? After doing this for years, we’ve certainly developed an eye for what looks cool. Trust us. When we go to the trouble to describe an F2 in the item title, it’s pretty cool.

Photo: Below is an example of a F2 Special disc. This disc would be titled: F2 Champion Firebird - Cartoony Llama Eating Chains Wearing Disc Golf Bag stamps

 

Innova Factory Second Disc. Example of a F2 disc with Special stamps.

 

Whole Lotta Stamps? You may have noticed a few DGU F2’s that have a “Whole Lotta stamps” in the item’s name. Sometimes discs that have already become Factory Seconds are then used as Set Up discs, which are used by Innova hot stampers to properly align subsequent stamping projects. These F2’s often end up with a dozen or more various stamps, hence the description: Whole Lotta stamps.

Photo: Below is an example of a F2 Special disc with "Whole Lotta" stamps. This disc would be titled: F2 DX Valkyrie - Whole Lotta stamps

 

Innova Factory Second Disc. Example of a F2 Special disc with a Whole Lotta stamps.

 

F2 Regulars:

This is the other way we list our Factory Second discs. For these F2’s, there is no description in the item’s title (F2 Star Mako3). Nothing really stood out for us about them. However, that’s ok. They’re still useful because we want to have as many discs, plastics, and weights of Innova’s inventory as possible. These discs will most often have random stock or custom stamps or a combination of both.

Bulk F2’s: Occasionally we have access to large amounts of blank Xouts, or we're tasked with livening up some F2's with an additional stamp. When this happens we like to get creative and decorate them with cool stamps that can include existing Innova or DGU stamps plus an F2 stamp or a brand new artsy-style F2 stamp. For these Bulk F2's we will provide a few sample photos since the stamp/s will be the same for each disc (aside from stamp color, which can still vary).

Photo: Below is an example of a Xout blank Star Daedalus. Instead of using a generic F2 stamp we decided to create DGU Original F2 art for it and a few other blank F2s. This disc is titled: F2 Party Foul Star Daedalus

 

Innova Factory Second Disc. Example of a F2 disc with a DGU Original F2 stamp.

 

Other times, we’ll add a well-placed second stamp when we have several cases of F2 discs that need a breath of fresh air.

Photo: Below, several cases of DX Roc were stamped incorrectly with the Roc3 stamp, so we F2'd them and found a pretty sweet old Bottom Stamp to make these even sweeter. These are entitled: F2 DX Roc - Roc3 & Old Bottom Stamp Roc stamps.

Questions & Answers

What does factory second mean?

Factory Second Innova refers to cosmetically flawed discs in unused condition that have either minor  imperfections in the plastic or stamp misprints or both. Because of this, these discs are sold at a discounted price. They perform the same as non F2 discs and are legal to use for tournaments.

What makes a disc a factory second?

A disc becomes a factory second for two main reasons: a stamp misprint or minor plastic imperfections. Factory second discs with stamp misprints often have multiple stamps while discs with plastic imperfections may have minor scratches, scuffs, chips, and other blemishes in and outside the plastic.

Is factory second the same as refurbished?

Factory second is not the same as refurbished. Factory second discs are new discs with either stamp misprints or minor plastic imperfections. Refurbished often refers to used items that have been repaired or renovated.

Can you use factory second discs in tournaments?

Factory second discs are legal to use in any disc golf tournaments. Since the imperfections in the discs are merely cosmetic, the discs themselves are unchanged. Factory second discs have the same flight characteristics and performance as regular production discs.
