Man, so happy to finally have some DFD's to play with. Was in a tough spot in the rough yesterday 250ish feet out and used one to get up and around some trees from an awkward stance and ended up just inches too low and hit the cage. Thinking these will replace the light diamonds nicely. I love the diamonds, but they're a bit too touchy sometimes where these DFD's seem like they can handle a bit more while still hitting similar lines.

G-Lines are here!


Will be interested to hear how these fly from the masses, but won't be picking any up for now. Too in love with my 3rd run C-lines.

EDIT: Looks like only max weights available right now.

Booter, have you tried one of the 3rd run C-FD's? They're the perfect FD IMO. Stability of a S-Line with a bit more of a predictable fade.

From the Discmania website:

It's the perfect combination of the the first runs that glide for days and the second runs that have been called "the big boy FD" because they fade hard at the end of the flight.

I am hopping on the 3rd run bandwagon, too. I used to have only 1st runs and sometimes they would turn too much. The 3rd run has just a little less turn and still doesn't have a massive fade. It does everything in beautiful slow motion Between the 3rd run and FR FD2 I have that FW slot nicely covered. Notch down is a beat S-CD (in terms of understability that is) and notch up are a slew of PDs.

I picked up a 166 C-line FD. This thing is much more stable than I was expecting. Perhaps a tick less stability than a teebird with almost as much fade at the end. I was looking for an understable fairway driver but this is stable-overstable. I can't get any turn on it thrown flat and hard. Into the wind or on an anhyzer it will turn a bit but always comes back at the end.

I'd love an understable fairway that's just a tad more stable than a River, without much fade. My Witness is way too flippy, the Gold Line River is a little too flippy.

What run did you get? Sounds like the flat second line

Not sure. It was just purchased from Marshal St, but I don't know how long it's been on their shelf.

The disc is quite flat.
