I have seen this same plug marketed under several brand names such as McCoy, Hangar 9, Dynamite and others. I am betting it is the exact same plug, just under another "brand" name.

In my experience the MC9 plug is better than the MC59 so if you can find the MC9 easier, that is a great alternative.

Way back when,, I ran the mc-9 in my 1/8th scale buggies with a.21 on 30%,, the mc-59 in the smaller .12 10th scale trucks on 20% Both are great depending on what you're running

it's hard to believe that as small as this hobby is, there are several different manufacturers making plugs, today. i'd bet there is a single manufacturer making them all and selling them to be re-branded. many rebranding manufacturers will make items somewhat individualized for different brand names by coloring them differently or using different colored seal material or something like that to satisfy the "brand" requirements from larger brand names, but the plugs remain physically the same from brand to brand. there just isn't enough volume to keep several different manufacturers busy making individual designs . there's also the fact that in todays manufacturing industry, shared technology has all but stifled individual design in favor of a single design that is known to work well in all situations. this is especially true in items of simple design with no or very few working parts.
