At least the variance in runs is pretty easy to spot so you know what to look for. Buy a Star Destroyer and it could be anything.

This also could be said if you bought FD's when they were producing second runs. I had multiple second runs at one point before they were expensive.

Enough speculation on Discmanias gaps in their line up. In reality itís one of the few manufacturers that doesnít have 5 molds that do the same thing.

Any teasers on new molds for 2019

Eagle showed his collection in his vlog today, there were some that he couldn't show, so obviously something that hasn't been released yet. He was also showing his bag and said that his real beat in PD2 probably wouldn't be in the bag, because of something they were coming out with. My guess based off of this is a destroyer like disc. maybe 12/5/-1/3 or 4. would be pretty great.

I would bet that it's the revised PD2 mold they released as the glow c-pd2. It is NOT the same mold as a normal PD2 and flies much more like a destroyer with slightly more dump at the end of it's flight, consistent with your thinking on flight numbers. Maybe a 6 on glide, as mine glide for days, even more than my destroyers.

Special Mystery Box Giveaway:

My full review wouldn't fit inside the character limit so I'm posting the full version here:

It was Christmas 2016. Earlier in the year I purchased my first Discmania disc after throwing a friends PD on the course a few times. The PD changed everything for me. I instantly clicked with the disc and found myself throwing them more every round. I knew I needed to try more from Discmania.

Back to Christmas time. I had heard about these mystery boxes that were released throughout the year and at Christmas. I was intrigued. Would I get something crazy? A rare PD like many of my friends had? Would I get a bunch of stock discs seemingly at random? How good could it possibly be? I usually like to pick out my discs, often only buying from local stores. Yet I couldn't resist the possibilities in this box.

A week later my Mystery Box was waiting for me on my porch. The white silhouette and mystery symbol teasing me to open it and peek inside. I rushed inside and sat down on the floor in the living room like a kid in front of the tree. Once open I pulled out the goodies one by one. A couple of Luster PDs beckoning me. The sweet pearly plastic begged to be thrown, these were going right into the bag. My PD addiction was sated. I kept going, the box full of treats.

Unique double stamps, mini stamps, shield stamps; MD3s, PD2s, P2s, CD2s, the variety was great. Everything seemed to have a place, it didn't feel random at all. A lot of care was taken when this box was filled. It was special and it held one more surprise. At the bottom of the box there was one more disc; the FD. As I held this S-Line FD I marveled in how it seemed to feel like a long lost friend. Before even throwing it I could tell there was something special. I grabbed my bag, stocked with my usual suspects and the new Luster PDs and headed to the course.

I got to a difficult wooded hole. 325 feet, with a long narrow tunnel, and a green tucked behind a large trunk. I had been throwing Teebirds for a decade. I had been throwing a CE Teebird on this hole for about as long. The FD called to me though and I couldn't resist putting it to the test. It held a beautiful line, split the tunnel, missed the guardian tree, and finished straight making a beeline for the pin. The FD soared right over the basket and finished about 20 feet long. I couldn't believe it, I had never been long on this hole before. The FD made it feel easy. I threw the disc every chance I could the rest of the round. It continued to amaze. It held beautiful long turnovers, flew straight and glided for days, hyzers opened up more possibilities.

The FD was a new favorite. I still loved the PD but I was looking for chances to throw the FD. All year long every time I would throw a great shot and someone asked what disc I threw I responded, "S-Line FD". I was in love. I bought more FDs in 2017 and 2018. I couldn't resist trying different plastics and getting cool stamps.

I bought more mystery boxes too. They always impress. This year I'm currently waiting on my 2nd edition to arrive. Wondering what goodies are in store, what unreleased disc is inside. Could it be the next beginning of something special? You can feel the magic in the air.

Uhh broomer.....do you 💓 Discmania or what?

The DM support dude seems to be MIA. Wonder if he got tired of me whining about the limited supply of offerings in less than max weight.

Revised PD2 mold? where did you get the intel on that? :popcorn:

I watched a live video chat with Simon and someone asked him about the upcoming DD3 and what it's like. Simon's response was something along the lines of "It will replace the Destroyer."
