Thanks.

Most likely Koford.

Red arm dye is usually a good indicator.

The difference in tags might be the X12 is machine wound and the 12 is handwound.

But I honestly don't follow that spectrum of racing much, so I am not entirely sure.

A second pic of the stack lines would further ID them as 'x-12' is common on several makers and red arm dye is common.

The 12 is a late model machine wound  Koford 12 arm without a doubt.You can tell by the text on the tag and how its built.The second x-12 is most likely a proslot x-12 that has been re dyed.There's a very slight possibility it could be a few others and without seeing it in person I cant say for sure.But I'm 99% sure it's a later pro slot arm.The windings are too neat really to be one of the older X-12's but I guess there's still a very small chance it is.

 

Generally speaking while hard it is possible to tell by the fonts used.Each company uses a slightly different font and tag material so in person it's pretty easy to tell if you've seen enough and the wrong font usually gives cheaters away too ;-)

 

Edit-I just blew up the last pic and it is for sure a Proslot tie job on the com.They tend to use less epoxy and a few less wraps then Koford does.So on most Proslot arms you can still see the tie materials color whereas Koford's is more encased in epoxy.If you look closely you'll see what I mean.
