Jussi hinted at a stable fairway at one point. Thats all I know. Other than that I have no intel about whats coming out this year. Last year was cool when you knew what was slated for release, even though the wait was even worse then, knowing. :D

^^^ This

I just want to try an S-CD2. From what I hear it might fill a slot in my bag. In the meantime I am trying other discs.

If one of those other discs fills the missing slot in my bag, then I suppose Discmania will sell slightly fewer discs.

When two similar molds are competing for a slot in my bag, the winner is often the one that is readily available.

I've heard the SFD and SPD will be back in stock in the next few weeks.

Also, Facebook just showed me a stock stamp C-Line PDX

I don't know how true this is, but it made sense to me. Everyone who has bagged a MF disc for an extended period of time knows how amazing they feel once you beat them in. Food for thought!

we got another redditor

I don't think it's metal, I believe it's mylar. That'd render the reddit theory.. wrong ;)


I've flown with MF discs, they didn't raise any interest.. so I really don't think it's metal.

Just thought I'd pop my head and and thank DM for the Doombird FD3! What a great disc. It flies just like my KJ TBs but 40-50' longer. Very predictable and trustworthy. Keep them coming!

Interestingly enough, the discs show up as blue on the x-ray, and usually blue means metal. Thats where the metal salts as weighing agent theory comes in. Generally plastic is orange on the screen. In any case, whatever the color, often operators have no concerns over them, unless something funny comes up on the image in combination with them, or if there are so many at such an angle that it is not clear if something else could be under there.

Lets all just call it what it is. No use of denying it anymore.. It's Glitter.

So pieces of glitter flakes that are big enough for us to see, are going to slice apart C-C bonds in the polymer chains? :doh:

They definitely cause the polymer to grow/form around the flakes, but I doubt it changes the chain length or anything at all significant during polymerization. Maybe little pockets form around the flakes or something eventually. Tell the redditor they are wrong.

Honestly I wouldn't know. I could imagine having foreign objects embedded in the plastic making a difference, but it's not my field. I'm glad we have so many experts here though, that's why I brought it up! I get it, it's a dumb theory, case closed.
