More to the point, if the sale of 17,000 discs could meaningfully give the headroom to substantially increase production capacity in the short term, we’d already be knee-high in discs.

dehaas 06-24-2021 02:30 PM

The more I think about it, the more I realize how well the last couple of days were handled.

I know I saw about 8,500 pairs available at launch on Tuesday when I placed my order, but others have said they saw closer to 10,000. There were restocks yesterday, not sure how many additional sets. I believe I saw people claiming there were restocks later on Tuesday also.

Probably safe to say there were way many more available than what people were expecting. One pair per customer was fair, and I felt the pricing was fair as well. Stock P2’s have an MSRP of $12.99, so an upcharge of $5 per disc for a prototype run is reasonable. Luna’s are $19.99.

Totally understandable that it’ll take a few months to build up enough inventory for a stock P2 release, especially considering there will be three different stiffnesses. The promise to keep running more until the crazy demand subsides is a smart move, especially for a putter, which people tend to buy in multiples. They’ll sell an MFT of P2’s.

Anybody else think it’s kinda funny that after the inventory struggles and announcing the split with Innova they blow it out of the water with a massive P2 drop? Not saying there was any public rubbing it in Innova’s face, but to me that was the dg equivalent of a mic drop.

Yeah, seriously. The fact that they sold somewhere around 17,000 to 20,000 discs in a couple of days is definitely a statement. Not sure if Innova really cares though, they're about to drop a crap ton of Sexton Firebirds and those will sell out instantly.

I don't think Innova cares. They might even have a 'good for you' attitude about it. Remember, Innova has to make their own discs along with discs for other brands (such as Infinite). Discmania leaving, just gives Innova more time to make their own and other brand's discs.

If Discmania stayed with Innova....who's discs would have to wait during the time Innova was making Discmania's production? My guess is that Innova's equipment is running constantly regardless of them producing Discmania discs or not.

I'm sure you would not expect the plastic manufacturers and the employees to work for free.

Absent taking care of all that, the new machine wouldn’t ever actually make anything.

The net revenue from any batch of disc sales is not the same as what they have free to spend on new capital expenditures. And we don’t even know that $300K is enough to fully pay for everything that would go into adding another production line. Manufacturing can be extremely expensive, as we’ve seen with the discussion of the mold prices.

And then there is the question of how selling out a single batch of discs that they surely counted on selling out would somehow change their calculations for what kind of manufacturing capacity is optimal for them going forward. They have (almost certainly) planned this acquisition of manufacturing capacity, and any subsequent improvements and increases carefully. It may be that they are currently sourcing more equipment, but that’s likely money already spent (from a budgeting perspective), based on forecast demand. In order to bring any new capacity on line in the near term, they’d already need to be well down the road on it, having ordered the build of the equipment, planned for the appropriate space, considered how installation and new employee training would impact ongoing manufacturing, etc. If their demand forecast supports adding more machines, they should already have it in the works.

Finally, obtaining enough current manufacturing capacity to rapidly address pent up demand isn’t likely to be a sound strategy. A large chunk of the current demand is a temporary spike based on building out enough capacity to satisfy temporary demand just leaves you with idle capacity in the future. Every disc manufacturer is currently facing this same conundrum, wondering if the COVID spike will last; it’s even more important for DM to navigate this successfully, as they have had surprised capacity versus demand even before COVID hit. Their plans depend on making enough discs fast enough to pay down the excess demand fast enough to retain customers, while leaving themselves in a good position when they get back to baseline demand. And that should be based on their projections, not one successful sale of a run if discs.

I agree with you in regards to their machines probably running 24/7 at this point, and they’re just producing plastic for themselves or another company and still making money.

You’re going to see a lot more Discmania discs in circulation now that they have control of their own manufacturing. A direct competitor finally removing the handcuffs is the bigger issue for Innova.

My #1 favorite throwing putter. Overstable, but not beefy, with glide. Magical.

It's tough to say with certainty that it'll come back but also with certainty, it hasn't been planned to remove from production either. These molds will begin to emerge little by little and eventually we'll be back to the collection of discs that everyone knows and loves. 2022 will bring a few more in addition to these five this year and we'll just keep cranking away.

It's looking like July for the Mutant. We're making more of them currently to add to the batch at the moment. Sorry for the extended wait but people are going to be happier for it, for sure.

Has it been decided if some of the molds within the Originals line will be retired altogether or possibly see a slight redesign to minimize overlap with other models?

I’m thinking along the lines of the TDx, which didn’t really have a lot of turn. P3 wasn’t a ton more OS than the P2 (although shaped way different). PDx, PD3, and PD2 have similar numbers, things like that.

Some of those were similar enough to existing models that I think they may have cannibalized each other. Having control of the design provides an opportunity to spread models out a bit. Totally get putting the priority on high demand models, but some of those lesser known models could be resurrected into something pretty sweet.

Jolt 06-25-2021 02:42 PM

I liked the old P3 . . but if Discmania can make copies of molds why not just copy the Zone and call it P3
. . . and copy the Fierce and call it P0

I mean they certainly could. It has happened in the past for sure. Probably all companies are guilty of it to some degree. But i think it is almost always a better practice to try and make your own original (obviously this is a matter of degrees) mold that has the certain desired flight/feel characteristics.

DiscJunkie 06-25-2021 11:41 PM

In my experience, the Tactic (Razor Claw) is in the Zone class.
I LOVE the P3, but it has been removed from production ��
Thankfully I have enough P3s to last for quite a while.

The TDX is slated to be re-molded for a less stable flight.

DD3 in stock S/C-lines (new!) plus Cloudbreaker 3 (remain swirly S-Line), maybe a special edition (metalflake?)
MD3/PD might be one or both. Depends if they make Iron Samurai III, Lone Howl III, Dark Maul III. If they are produced, expect all the stock plastics (S/C/D) and maybe an additional special edition.

I'd say the above are the 5 most popular molds currently in the Originals lineup and make sense for the limited amount of production time. I think everyone would be happy with more availability of the tour series discs so they will likely increase production of those and do bigger runs of the stock plastics for each.

Likely no PD2/FD2/FD3 Tour series so those won't get produced (they were produced in 2020 though). Simon moving on to the Tilt seems to replace the Sky Rider?

Could see Montgomery & Pirronen's Tour series moving over to the Evo line (Link/Instinct?) and Klein, Anttila, & Vikstrom getting a tour series in the Evo line (maybe one of the new molds?). Avery may not get a tour series disc (similar to Dana losing the Roaming Thunder CD2).

Pretty good predictions on the molds/tour series so far, didn't guess DM would be molding themselves though :)

I could only putt in the yard, but the plastic is very similar to d-line stiffness. Rim is firm and top is pretty firm too. Grip is improved: squeaky. Made my first three putts from 12 paces (where I generally start to have trouble). It’s interchangeable with the original. Edge, shoulder, everything feels the same.

dehaas 06-28-2021 11:45 PM

I haven’t received a shipping confirmation for my order yet. Not too worried about it though, they’ve got a ton of orders to fill.

This is incredibly encouraging and bodes well for the other molds. Is the plastic more like Exo hard? Or does it feel like a completely new thing? Can't wait to try a new FD with the fancy Italian-blend plastic :D

Nothing confirmed yet, but if I had to make a guess, I would say C-line only at first. Not sure they have the capacity to run multiple plastics of the same mold all at once? But again, this is a complete guess.

Maybe Discmania Support Person can chime in?

The plastic is remarkably similar to the D-line I have. It’s like if you had 30 d-line putters to feel in-hand, and picked the grippiest. That’s how much the same it feels. Feels less like EXO hard (one Tactic to compare).

Oh man, this is such good news. The OG D-line p2 is my all time favorite putter, and I definitely like the grippy-er runs. I wonder how this new plastic will beat in. I can't wait to check them out, and be able to have access to good putters when I need them without paying black market prices. :hfive:

great AMA with Jussi on reddit here: https://www.reddit.com/r/discgolf/co...discmania_ama/

some of the highlights for me:
Quote:

Q: Is the intent to release all the Originals line again, or will some not be brought back? I have a good number of friends who love their CD2s, and hope the wait isn't too long.

A: We plan to bring back most of the Originals. We do our best to bring 5-6 models into the market per year. CD2 is in the desing process.
Quote:

Q: If I understand it correctly, Innova owns your original molds while you own the names. Does this mean Innova will eventually come out with those originals under a different name? Or do you have a contract stopping them from doing so?

A: Innova owns their molds where Originals were made previously. They control everything from there. We own our names on discs.

I do not know what molds / names Innova will do in the future. We do not have any contratc there.
Quote:

Q: What is your favorite disc to throw?

A: All-time: D-line P2. Currently, I really enjoy throwing new C-line MD3.
Quote:

Q: For us Originals fans, what would you say are the discs to check out from the Active and Evolution lines that fill a gap in the Originals line-up?

A: There is a lot! I would say that there are few discs on Evolution line that are ”unique”. Essence, mutant and Logic. All those fill ”gaps” in my bag currently.

On Active line, everyone should try the Sensei. Fun fact: it will be the most sold Discmania disc in 2021. The popularity of a Sensei in Finland is crazy.
Quote:

Q: Eagle recently mentioned that you would be a top 10 pro if you were on tour, would you agree?

A: At some point of my career, I think I was top-10 in the World. My highest rating was 1039. I have top-5 finishes on every major I played (USDGC, Japan Open, Scandinavian Open, European Championships)

As 43-years now, there is no chance that I would be in the Top-10 today.
Quote:

Q: What is your favorite non-Discmania mold?

A: TeeBird. Such a great disc.

soothsayer 07-03-2021 12:53 PM

Just got me Proto P2s in, here is my reaction:

Plastic- feels pretty amazing. Like someone else said, feels like a grippy DX/D-Line plastic. The top has almost a gritty feel to it (in a good way, reminds me of X-Line or Nexus plastic but not exactly). Very stiff, very little flex. I'll be interested to see what how much stiffer the 3 version will be.

Shape: It's a P2. A lot of P2s have a slight puddle top to them, and most of the Alpacas I have touched have been that way too. The Proto p2s I got are on the domey end of the spectrum (I like it). The rest of the disc feels identical in my hand to my OG P2s that I always putt with.

If these discs are an indication of what is to come for the Discmania MFG. discs, then I think we can stop worrying. They were able to "Remake" this disc so closely that it tells me the rest of the molds will be just as good (I hope). Great job Jussi and Discmania, and I am excited for the MD3 to come out, even though I stocked up the last time they were run because I had a feeling that was going to be it.

Discmania Support person: When will the MD3s be dropping? Are they next up after the premium Tilts come out? What about the stock runs for the P2s? Id like to get my hands on some 1 and 3 Flex versions.
