WARNING: Complete speculation below.

One possibility is that Simon is working on another disc design that will essentially replace the Tilt in some form or fashion. Whether that is just the Discmania marketing hype working its magic, or Simon had some tweaks he thought would make for an even better version, either way I could see it happening.

Not bad speculation.

I think when Simon asked for the most overstable disc ever the Tilt may have been a bit more than he was expecting. I have to think he was hoping more for a trilogy version of a PD2 than a trick shot disc.

I think he wanted something stupidly-stupid overstable. That certainly seemed like the case when he talked through the design process. But now that he's seen it, he might want something just stupidly overstable. IDK.

Me, I’m waiting on the production version of the new MD1…

Have you thrown the MD1 against the Origin? I havenít. I hope the MD1 has HSS like the MD3 and LSS like the Origin. That would be dreamy.

DiscJunkie 08-30-2022 11:04 PM

I have thrown the Origin in GEO, NEO and META (Midnight Prowl) but they didn’t suit me.
All are a bit flippy for my taste and I’ve had control issues with them.
My home course doesn’t have many shots that line up for a long under stable mid-range.

I haven’t thrown the MD1, and I won’t throw one as long as I have to pay collector prices for it.
There are too many good sub-$20 discs on the market to pay $50 for an MD1.

There's a video where he talks about how he was asked to design a disc and he had specific numbers in mind. Either in that video or another (it was one done from his house), there was a white board in the background with flight numbers on it and it turned out to be the Tilt's flight numbers.

If I can find the video(s) I'll post the link....but the Tilt is what he was looking for.

I found this one where he says it is his dream disc. I haven't yet found the one where he says the numbers have been on his whiteboard for a while.

Has there been any statement about some of the lesser popular molds making their way into production? I would like to see more CD3s available but I feel like it is a long way out.
