I have trouble finding P-Line P2s as well. I think there are only three of them left at the official Discmania dealer here in Germany, but only in low weights. No other shop in Germany has them in stock. I have also checked the Swedish and Finnish websites without much more success. An update would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Maybe I was just lucky, but I found two yesterday at a local store in KC. Good luck on your search.

The stock release of the MD4 will come out when it is Fall in Finland :). But it will come soon. We have to release the TDx and the MD4 will follow shortly after.

Although I've been running an experiment of sunbleaching a P-P2 that I threw up on the black tar roof of my garage in Spring. I"m going to take it down in Fall and compare it to another one from the same run I have as a control. It already is a bit lighter and feels a little softer.

That might work out well for you! I have heard of people doing that before and it seems fine. I would recommend using a black P-Line disc in the heat if you want something like D-Line but a bit more firm. Not ideal for all weather obviously but it is worth a shot.

We definitely have plenty of the Eagle signature ones online. Have you checked those out?

-Discussion on the End of New DiscMania Molds-

I LOVED Jussi's interview in the Spring 2015 Disc Golfer Magazine where he talkes about a professional line of disc golf discs, with a full, but limited number of molds, enough to fill all the slots needed. I have wondered out loud in this thread before I think, but I am wondering out loud now - after the DD3 is out (likely next year), is that the end of new molds from DiscMania?

Maybe this is a Jerry Maguire type moment The Things We Think And Do Not Say. Fewer Molds.

This is my favorite disc golf company for the culture, feel, professional, global and long term view of disc golf. But in order to make Jussi's mission we gotta stop making molds. Or - retire them 1:1 as new ones come. I think dropping the Gremlin for the MD4 is OK for most, but I think the end is near on new molds.

As far as a professional lineup goes, anything from here would just be more Innova/Discraft/DD/Prodigy new molds for newbs type stuff. That's not what DiscMania is about. Or is it? Or is it not going to be what Jussi hoped?

All valid statements. We do our best to have a professional lineup while keeping options a bit more limited to not add so much confusion. Granted, they all need to be good molds and nothing stays in the spotlight forever. We have discussed discontinuing various molds and in the end it will always be inevitable. Rest assured, however, that new mold production will not end with the creation of something like a DD3. We are just getting started and will have even more tricks up our sleeves for next year and the years to come.

Here's my two cents on the above:

Place for new molds in the existing line up-
DD3 - not sure what this is, but should be good.
FDx - stupid OS speed 6 or 7 (retool whippet)
MD5/MDx - OS like a mortar or gator
P4 - small rim high speed putter

Molds to drop or retool:
MD1 - drop
CD - drop
FD2 - retool or new plastics
TD2 - champion treatment not in plus rim

If new molds are going to be done for awhile, stamp/plastic ideas:
Color/glow CD3, FD3, FD
Stiff d-line - P2
Mini old art stamps - like mini hysterias on s-line DDs
Bring back the first original Discmania stamp
Disc art work series celebrating disc golf park courses
Another stamp contest :)
Environment series stamp - water, earth,etc or bees, trees etc some of the profits go to organzations
Featured artist series

Disclaimer: this is a question I don't want answered just speculated upon because I like surprises.

I wonder if the pmd3s will continue with the small shield stamp or get something else

Agree on the CD and MD1 drops. Plenty stock out there for people who do want them. But dont do anything to the FD2 other than run flat runs only.

Or an equivalent to the 2nd run FD, which are decently valuable. FD2 is not that.

That's why I have the caveat of other plastics. Basically if only small releases were planned and that mold is performing below expectations (this is me making this up), then a possible re-tool could boost sales on the mold.

After I lost all my soft glow FD2, I haven't wanted to bag it again :(
