Discmania TD
 
I find the TD to be a disc that is undervalued and underappreciated. I don't consider it be understable like the RR. I would consider it more of a stable disc. I've found that my CTD behaves like a SPD. The S-td behaves like a better PPD (cause it doesn't break in as fast).You can cover all shorts of shots with a TD: straight, annys, hyzer-flip, and hyzer shots. To me, the TD is a better Viking.

What do you other TD throwers think?

falls between a rr and tl for me.
I think its a useful disc but it won't go in my bag.
Did more testing with td and cd yesterday. Both will be up for trade.

How many STD's do you have? :O

I love it for rollers, new they overlap too much with other stuff so I fold them a bunch and instant long distance roller. I find they don't waver from there course as much as other discs, keeps a nice tight line.

How far are you getting the TD's out to? I figure that the TL's would not be as long as the TD.

The TD doesn't the stability to handle a headwind like a PD, but it's a good general speed 9 driver. I definitely appreciate that it comes in Star plastic as opposed to the Viking which is currently only made in slick, hard-as-a-rock, Champ ... really a terrible waste of a good mold.

The S-TD is absolutely sublime. I have a couple 168s and on a slight hyzer flip they are the straightest drivers I throw. I also noticed my C-TD is pretty close to my S-PDs as well.

The TD is by far my most used driver. On long, open holes I bust out the Destroyer but all other drives are with the TD. To the OP, your right about all the shots and lines you can pull off with one. The versatility seems unmatched. I have thrown about every driver out there and I haven't found one with the mix of glide, distance, and versatility with a very soft fade at the end like the TD. It knocked PD's out of my bag. I threw them both for a while but I just didn't like the HSS of the PD. The first runs with the different top were great but they are getting harder to find. I also couldn't hit a lower line with the PD like I can with the TD. I pretty much only throw the S-lines. I play with C-lines a little but they don't see as much action for me.

Love my STD's hehe. It's a very workable driver. I like having my SPD for more stable shots but my older and newer TD's are getting a lot of action

TD is a good disc (I currently use S, but have used C) but you need a pretty big arm for it to be used as a true turning driver. Most of us will use it more for hyzer flipped straight drives--at least when condition is anything short of beat. With ~360' power I can get them to hold a glidey anhyzer to the ground, but I've never found that particular shot to be very reliable to make.

As for me, I don't use the TD much because the shots that I'd want to make with it are covered by my P-PDs, and some even by beat S-PD. If I was only throwing S, I'd use it more.
