    Stingray "C" prefix serial #

    I saw a stingray for sale and the serial number matches up as looking legit from the serial number finder, but I thought all stingrays had "E" serial numbers. Anyone know the story behind the C?

    Thanks.

    This seems to be the situation in a broad sense.

    The regular Stingrays had the E serials up to early 2017 when reaching E99999. The serials were then allocated a C prefix (C00001). However, no more orders were taken for the regular Stingrays after the introduction of the Special (light weight) Stingrays c. mid 2018. The Specials were allocated F prefixed serials rather than the C. Consequently you have a short period of time with the regular Sting Rays sporting a C serials. If the regular Stingrays are offered again then my guess is that they will continue with the C serials.
