Discrafts runs are always the same, so your first run esp crush will fly exactly the same as one off the shelf right now. so with that being said, what makes first run special?? just the lettering on the disc.
Kinda sorta. I'll agree with you that Discraft IS more consistent, but they're definitely not 100% across the board on that. For instance, the 1st run Buzzzes were different than the later ones, and people liked those 1st runs so much, that it prompted Discraft to make a "2nd 1st Run Buzzz". There are other mold and plastic variations over the years (Predators have changed, I know), so some runs are more prized than others.
The whole collectible thing is really an Innova phenomenon, and its largely due to marketing. I find the market to be kind of ridiculous myself, but have to give Innova credit for making it work for them.
