Yes, however it is kind of hard to stamp so it may be limited to what we make on it.

Unless you guys release a gator-esque mid ;)) Love your discs, and recently hit my first ace with an Eagle Glow MD3. So yeah, thanks for being awesome and making a quality product! Now for the beef...

Just noticed you guys snuck the S-Line MD in your store. Any chance there will be a Shield stamp run of that coming soon?

Yeah, its coming soon.

How long until a regular prod release for the C-DDx? The S-Line's are ok, but need something that has just a notch more stability to it.

Also, any timeline on MF MD3's? I really like the MF FD3, so I'm guessing the MF MD3 could be money as well.

Also, any thoughts on S-Line P1x's?

I can tell you the C-DDx is coming. I just cant say when. S-P1x is interesting. Were going to work on getting still P-LINE first.

Any news on P line FD's? I saw a few on infinite disc, but I'd rather grab a stack from a DM official run.

And, same question regarding C-line or MF DDX. Tryna kick out the destroyers :) Than all that's left is my hyzerbomb mortar

We will be working on getting more FDs in stock and the Metal Flake DDx will be available at the Discmania Store at some point this year.

Playing a shorter course this weekend, the MD helped me shoot a 986 and 976 rounds of golf! very very straight disc with 0 fade and some tiny turn. Great job Discmania.

Yes, it is a fantastic flying disc. Weve found it to be able shape almost every type of shot here in California. Were really happy it helped you shoot better!

Its very slightly different.

Sorry about that, we were out for a while. We just recently were able to get more stock. Well do our best to keep that disc in stock. We know you guys really like the D-LINE P2.

Yeah, we werent prepared. Were working on ways to keep it in stock better!

Well, at the Discmania Store we like to try to bring the most successful version of the disc to the market first. So the Swirl is a unique way to offer a cool and exciting new disc to more customers. We know there is a group of you waiting for solid colors. Youve been heard.

Most people really like the aesthetics of the swirls so we like to give them what they like.

We have them in stock now!

There are plans for it to into full production but not for a while still. Fun fact the PDx was originally found when we were looking to make the FD3. It was too fast and not overstable enough to hold that spot in the lineup. However, we really like it to so we found a spot for it!

We have made and adjustment and finally gotten the USPS to get us better shipping options. As a new company it is sometimes hard to get better rates. Rest assured its one of those things that were searching for weekly.

They should be available shortly.

I'm still on the hunt for an "overstable" MD3.

We hear you. We are on a mission to make a more overstable midrange driver. But these things take time. Especially because we like to be particular with our discs.

Were sorry about that. We know our pricing is not the best. Thats why we strive for the absolute best service we can provide. And the MD3 thing. We know that its not overstable and probably should be a 2 fade on the disc. However its probably one of the best point and shoot midrange so we really dont want to be tweaking it that much. We are working on trying to find a solution for this.

Its ok. All feedback is good for us.

We did not have a good deal. However, were getting better at getting better pricing for you guys!

They may only have an option for 2-day shipping, but they package and ship their product quicker than most online retailers outside of Amazon.

Weve added 1st class and still strive for the best service possible for you guys.

Were working on it at all times. Rest assured one day well get the best pricing!

Were sorry we cant offer free shipping. We wouldnt be able to make money to help develop our brand into one of the biggest on the market.

There were two different '4th' run PD's; more of the firm, slightly more opaque C-Line plastic that had some dome and flew with a touch of turn and less fade - AND - the first run of Jolly Launcher C-line plastic, which were flatter, more translucent, slightly softer, and more high speed stable with a heavy fade.

If you want a PD with no turn and a strong fade, 7th/8th runs are what you're looking for. If you're looking for one with a bit of wiggle in it's flight, then look for a non-pat# Freak stamp S-line.

Give the CD2 a shot. You might be delightfully surprised in the flight. The 4th run PD was much more understable than almost all runs of the PD.

We really do try our best!

Soon!

Thank you all for supporting Discmania and giving us important feedback on ways we can help our fans and grow our brand to be one of the biggest and best brands in the game.

Reniger 07-01-2016 06:09 PM

rarintal; We most definitely appreciate your interaction and consideration. The new shipping option is freaking AWESOME and will certainly mean I'll be grabbing even more DM discs. Being a relatively new company, I completely understand the struggle of negotiating logistics pricing. However, everything I've tried from DM, I've loved. I went from mostly Prodigy to almost entirely Discmania and Reptilian (have to support the DGCR local boutique)

The MD3 is a FANTASTIC disc, but I'm still needing to carry a more overstable mid for that "never turns flat" slot. I would love to have an MD4 - Gator/Hornet/Verdict slot - but understand that developing new molds is an incredibly time consuming and expensive endeavor.

Keep up the great work! I will love to continue supporting the brand, and the great store. (keep the wicked awesome stamps coming - DDx Lion/PDx/DGWT) ;)

I am happy to see the P3 is here is S-line. However, a bit upset to see there has been a re-tool on the original. I love the feel of my D-line P3 and just wanted that disc in S-line. I will still try the new S line P3 but may wait for a regular production run.

To help me decide can you please post a picture of a first run D-line & new S-line (laid flat side by side).

As an avid P1x thrower in all plastics...this too interests me a great deal. Also, some big shield stamped P1x's would be fantastic.

And as always, thanks for taking the time to respond to all of our yearnings and quibbles. Hope the biking is going well for you.

Just curious (as a thrower of the FD2) what could the S-Line bring that the C doesn't already provide?

S Line Plastic.

I prefer s-line's for forehand, would beat in differently and nice for winter/rain golf. Some of the c-lines came out so domey too! A flat s-line would be the bee's knee's.

For me, it's just a feel thing. I prefer softer and grippier plastic. Also, they do beat in a little easier so you can have different shots out of the same mold.

Gotcha. The FD2 fits more of a utility function for myself. Just didn't seem like the multiple plastic/multiple stages of wear type of disc, but totally understand the preference in plastic. Thanks guys!
