I thikn the MD4 is supposed to be that. When they get it down. No idea if it will have a bead or not, but I have found that contrary to what I previously thought (that beaded discs will forever be uncomfortable for sidearm) a Justice for example that has a massive bead, is otherwise super flat and thus suited to my FH grip very well.

Flick Maniac 12-06-2016 01:49 PM

Can anyone compare the soft P-P1xs with X-P1xs? Flex and grip -wise? Are the softs all concave?

King K 12-06-2016 04:17 PM

What I want to see next year from discmania is

1. D-line PDs
2. MD4s (hopefully they can all be flat tops so that I can have a production disc to replace my flat top gators)
3. FDx (basically a second run fd clone, or a mix between a 6th run and 2nd run)

I understand why new discs take a while to produce with all the testing, designing, and marketing, but with a mold that has been around as long as the PD, why hasnt it come in d-line yet?

dehaas 12-06-2016 09:01 PM

Instead of trying to make md3s beefier why don't we just get a nice flattish JL gremlin? That would be beefier than most md3s.

Dr.Smooth 12-06-2016 10:26 PM

Agree on King X post.

Except for the fact of repeating past runs, is well, ya know if it could be done so nicely their wouldn't be all these sought after runs.

Dr.Smooth 12-06-2016 10:32 PM

yeah the fdx does sound so incredible..

When I first started playing years ago I used the 1-2 combo of pro line spider and pro line gremlin. It worked pretty well. Unfortunately all of the more recent ones have been domey. Maybe use the flat top process or it seems like most JL tends to mold up on the flatter side anyway.

It's a great mid, just doesn't get the love it deserves.

skizzle34 12-07-2016 07:48 AM

The new luster MD3 is pretty money for a go to mid range and will likely kick my buzzzes out. Now we really just need an MD4 that is gator stable and I will be back to all DM besides my beloved destroyers!

Flick Maniac 12-08-2016 03:13 AM

^Ditto! (FAF 12x Firebird instead of Destroyers though)

gerth_vader 12-08-2016 03:39 AM

will the md4 be small diameter? If the gargoyle is a vspider3 I am really hoping the md4 is a vgator3.

Dr.Smooth 12-08-2016 06:03 PM

Fundraiser PDX in the mail. I'm stoked!! Review coming soon..

Dr.Smooth 12-10-2016 09:07 PM

aesthetics/first impressions:

Well, the stamp and plastic go together so well. Candy blue plastic and the aussie make for an attractive disc.

Now the actual mold reminded me of a pd stretched into a size 11 plus rim. Almost felt 12 but I didn't get the calipers out. The dome is moderate and had a great transition from the rim up to center. No dents, puddle tops or flat areas. Just one smooth tranisiton. Best looking disc I've seen in a while. Reminded me of the enforcer.

Disclaimer: It is cold here in the midwest. Our coldest weather to date. So I didn't go through the full rounds of testing. Just a few throws. But here are my observations:

This disc is fast, and os. Like what discmaina said here it is reminiscent of the sought after os run of the pd. But I believe (having never thrown that run) this may be similar to that run with better wind penetrating speed.

This is not a toy and the x factor is for real. It is fast, os and wants to penetrate. This should easily hit the top 5 molds of 2017 when I guess it might be released.

I will be bagging these for sure when the come out in p line plastic.

This disc is not a toy and is designed for someone who has certain degree of arm speed.

The rumored re-tool I heard was the griffin for the md4

The Pdx is supposed to be released in 2018 from what Jussi said in his AMA.

skizzle34 12-14-2016 09:08 AM

For anyone interested and on facebook please go give the Discmania Media Partners page a like and share and we will keep you in the loop when new molds and releases happen!

Has anyone thrown both the X-P1x and a soft P-P1x and would care to comment on flex/grip/etc. ? My favourite throwing and putting putter in X-line and dying to try out the soft P once it becomes available in Finland.

Got mine today. Usually putt with kc pros but have fallen in love with the x line p1x so I picked up a p line for winter. It's till pretty stiff with just a minimal amount of give. Putts like a p1x. Grip is not as chalky or tacky as the x line by a mile. The x line is too perfect in my opinion though

DiscGolfGuy413 12-18-2016 02:23 PM

D-Line FDs?
 
Where can I get D-line FDs? I've seen them around but can't find any. I was wondering if there was somewhere that I could buy some.

I am guessing they will re-stock for 2017 through the Discmania store.

edit - this store has one in stock: http://www.blackinkdiscs.com/product/fd-d-line/

edit 2 - here too http://www.breakinchainsdiscgolf.com/product-p/197.htm

Will P Line MD3s become a stock disc or remain a factory store thing? Great mold, love my proto P Lines, just wish they were easier to get.

Me too. The availability is still pretty good in Finland at least despite a lack of stock release, and I have a stack.

What are the chances of getting color D-line glow in a Discmania mold? P2 or P1x would be the obvious candidates.

How about some boring old pink S Line P1x

I had $25 on the table for one a long way back but that's dwindling with my patience :)

DinosaurThunder 01-09-2017 09:40 PM

Just so everyone is aware - I believe Ryan has taken a job elsewhere and will not be continuing to answer questions. I have sent notes to a few other store employees asking for their presence on DGCR. Stay tuned.

We always have spots open for the team. Discmania now uses the Combine as the engine for acquiring new team prospects. We are in the process of planning for the 2017 schedule so keep an eye out and let us know if you need help!

We are always looking to replicate this disc, and have plans to do so, but have other projects we are working on in the meantime. The 6th run FD is a nice choice for now and we have gotten very positive feedback on our latest run of the Luster FD.

Thanks for the wishlist. Sorry for the late response on this one. We did our best to make Halloween great and we hope you liked our bat wings stamp!! As far as the D-Line MD3 goes, it is definitely in our future plans. Be on the lookout!!

Obviously, where I'm going with this is less weight in center, more in rim, while still being able to have lighter weights than max.
I'd be curious if that added glide and/or stability in long range drivers. A DDX in the high 160s with most of that weight in the edge seems like it'd be killer...

Thanks for the question. This prototype run of Blizzard DDx was a special thing that we wanted to do for our customers. Making discs with the bubbles in the flight plate is a very hard thing to do and we end up with more X-Out products than production quality discs that meet our specifications. It is very likely that when another run of these DDxs are produced, they will return to having the bubbles exclusively in the rim. Bubbles only in the flight plate would likely not allow those discs to be the correct weight for blizzard specs.

We do have plans to make the G-DDx one day but need to pursue other tasks in the meantime. It is not out of the question that this disc will be made, but things like the MD4 and other important discs need to come first. G-Line TD is a good suggestion but the same goes for this as well.

Also do you have any buttery hysteria stamped s-line DDs hidden at the store? :)

S-Line FD2 may be a possibility in the future. We had a very positive response with the G-Line FD2s we sent out in the Mystery boxes and will perhaps release the S-FD2 at some point. We hear your requests!! The S-DD unfortunately is now gone. The Hysteria ones, that is. Those were also sent out in the Mystery boxes and we hope people will appreciate what they are and how cool of and item it really is. Although most of the discs were on the lighter side, those 2nd runs make for great bombers!

Thanks for your question about the MD3. Our Luster MD3 has been very popular among throwers looking for exactly that. Although this mold has not been retooled, it is actually quite a bit more overstable than any run produced thus far other than the Glow MD3 with a high dome. We feel as if those two runs were comparable and Luster may even take the cake with overstability. The MD4 will be just what you need for a more overstable MD3.

Hey there. The soft P1x is going to be the most buttery feeling P1x we have made thus far. It provides unparalleled grip along with a softer feel and makes for a great thrower. During these colder months, they offer the perfect complement to the stiffer versions of the P1x so you can maintain control while your hands are cold and wet. Dana loves this disc and has quickly become a firm advocate of the soft P1x. The X-P1x is going to be similar. They will be a touch more overstable and a bit stiffer as well. We would say that the amount of grip in the plastic is a tiny bit less but not so much that it makes a huge difference between the two.

Good idea! The MD4 will come first and we hope you will all love it when it is complete. We have no plans at the moment to reinvent the GM for the time being. Try the MD3 in Luster if you havent already. They are fantastic.

Thanks for the question. The MD4 cannot be disclosed at the moment as far as the specs and diameter. We have many options in mind and want to be meticulous with our choice. No, small diameter is not out of the question but we do want to make sure we have all of our options readily available for this one.

Actually yes. The colors offered with the "stock" P-Line/factory store stamp are not what I'd care for. Also, the $15.99 price for base plastic is a huge turn off.

*DM has full carte blanche on what they want for their factory store. They go out of their way to offer unique runs and discs. Add to that the effort they take to describe even the factory runs, I get the value.
