The one that flew the closest to the advertised flight was a heavier Blizzard, but it got flippy soon after I got it. I grabbed another one and it was pretty much a roller out of the box. Tried a p-line and it was too flippy. I also have an s-line that flies more OS than my PD2's and I've tried everything to make it more stable, but no luck. Only one I've not tried is a c-line.

I'd love to have a DD2 that starts off with a bit of high speed turn and a nice hard fade. Does that disc exist? Maybe I should look at beating in a p-line PD2 instead?


I had 2 echo star DD2s and when I ordered them I asked for the highest PLH possible to make sure they were a little more stable. One of them was pretty much a destroyer mild turn followed by healthy fade and the other was like a katana where it would turn over released on a hyzer angle. I am still wishing they would make a disc in between the DD2 and PD2!

I'd definitely try the C-line. In my bag I keep 2 C-line and 1 Echo S-Line as my main distance drivers. The flight is exactly what you're describing for me when thrown on a slight hyzer.

In stability that would be a DD, though it isn't quite as fast.

The DD for me was a weird tweener between my PD and destroyers. It was just slightly faster and maybe 10-15 longer in average than my PD but less comfortable to throw and slower with about 30-40ft less distance potential than my destroyers. I just want a discmania destroyer!

I've had bum luck with the DD2(S-Line) lately The two S-Line's(New Stamp) I picked up recently were more overstable than my bubble rim C-PD2's. Anybody else have the same experience? I might try a C-Line to see if they fit the bill.

Heck yes! I have an old stamp S-line that is more OS than some of my PD2's and I've tried all sorts of things to try and make that disc less stable. Trimming flashing, throwing it directly into trees, rocks, the asphalt, tuning it... Nothing has worked. Really it's just lost a tick of HSS, but still with monster fade.

Bummer to hear the new stamp S-lines are just as OS. I'd prefer to bag the S- over the C-lines.

I do love how Discmania recognizes and celebrates the differences between different production runs and sells them separately with different descriptions. It makes buying new discs that much easier... but ends up hurting my diminishing PayPal balance :D

Thanks, we just want you guys to have the absolute best chance to reinvent your game and conquer courses.

And since your answered my P2X question... No worries, I already went out and bought 2 172G P-line P2's ;) my pointer finger sits absolutely perfect on that rim. I haven't gotten to putt these yet but I'm thinking they will be my main putter.

You're the bomb. My bag will always consist of Discmania from here on out.

Thanks! we just released full weight P-LINE P2s (most marked with KP2, but all from the same run)

We are always open to new ideas. We will consider it with new products.

I love seeing some of the limited stock discs pop up on your store. I'll definitely be looking to pick up some more glow MD3s, etc. However, there's no way G-PD2s wouldn't be a success. I have a good mix of PD2s in the bag, but I think a G-PD2 (especially a domey one) would be perfect for big s-curve bombs after a little beating in. I have a couple first run euro-open C-PD2s but they took an eternity to get to that point and I would hate to lose them. Additionally it would be nice to have the same disc with a little less HSS. When I bagged destroyers, I went S/DS, champ DS, *D, echo DS in order of stability. It would be nice to be able to do the same with PD2s in premium plastic.

G-PD2s will most likely happen. But it's not high speed season yet. isn't it still winter up in the northern states?

We have free shipping every so often on the store. it's not a permanent thing we offer.

Correct.

Feel free to email us about this if you're really serious. Store@discmania.net

We will certainly consider them for future productions.

yes they still have bubbles in the rim, but the plastic is a little more cloudy and some colors even have a little pearl.

Think you'll ever make D-line PDs?

We have actually considered both. Do you think D-LINE PDs would be worth wile after 2 rounds and the outside edge is dinged up?

There are some that are domey, but not nearly as domey as the previous run. That is why we name the run "flatter jolly launcher" and not "flat jolly launcher"

Pro tip - Red & Pink are the flattest colors I've seen so far.

Thanks for quick response. That disc does not have the same profile as the ones I received. Mine are exactly like previous run making me think there was a mix up.

the Yellow/Green or dayglow seem to have the higher dome. Remember all PD2s are overstable, some just glide further than others :)

yes, picture please!

Most blues were flatter, but Pink and Red were flattest.

yes there will be a P-LINE P1x. Yes it will be KC pro material.

I have this c-line pd, cannot figure out which run it is. All I truly know is that it's not a 1st run. It's pretty flat, very stiff, and the plastic is glass clear. I had assumed it was a 6th run based off the description on the discmania site (http://store.discmania.net/index.php...e-pd-flat.html) but I bought one from the site and the plastic was not nearly as stiff or as clear. The disc is yellow and the 6th run I bought is blue. I dunno if the color of plastic would make a difference or not.

Anyone know the run?

TLDR: Anyone know what run my flat, glass-clear, stiff PD is?

Is it lighter? There was a portion of the 5th run that came out flatter but they were all 165-168 and they were pretty beefy. If it's not lighter I would guess 3rd run, but you said it was clear and not pearly it's not that run.

lighter 5th run was my guess.

Want to sell it? I know a few people on the Discmania Collectors and Throwers page on Facebook that would want it.

Opaque rims came on the 2nd and 4th run. 2nd run has a plus mold rim.

So the newest S-LINE run is really overstable. The flight numbers are more like 13/5/-1/2 you really need to take the time to beat these ones in and they become your best friend. If you're looking for closest to the flight numbers I would recommend the C-LINE DD2 or Echo S-LINE DD2. If you want one that goes a bit further - look for the 165g blizzard C-LINE DD2. Even Jussi uses this specific blizzard disc. it has a harder feeling compared to the soft spongy feeling rim of newer blizzard discs.

Try our newest S-LINE DD2 with the new stamp design.

I would recommend trying to find a domey S-LINE DD. It's more like a more dependable but still offers the glide you're looking for.

The newest S-LINES are really firm. if you can find a soft feeling S-LINE DD2 that's exactly disc you're looking for to get further down the fairway and create a helix type flight.


Thanks for all the questions guys!
Cheers,
Ryan

Absolutely, other 1.9 sized rim discs hold up well and have a good life cycle in DX (Firebird, Viking, Valkyrie). I'd buy a stack of 10 D-Line PDs the day they came out.

I would buy 2 stacks of 10 (20 total).

There's 30 right there, how many would you need total to do a run for us?
