It was Discmania collectors and throwers but got removed straight away because it wasn't supposed to be out for public yet.

Looks like they officially announced the official release today on the DM website. May 22nd it is. :D

Since Simon sold his entire bag, is there a new “in the bag” on the way? Ian said he’s throwing a DD3 and an Instinct now...

thatdirtykid 05-13-2019 01:30 PM

I know he was throwing a lot of DD3 here in Colorado (303 and flatirons tags). Wasnt sure if it were just the elevation or not, I imagine he will like them at sea level too.

There should be plenty of P-Line MD3 online currently with our store stamp on them. If we run out, we've got more! No whites though.

How about a new run of S-PDs? Not terribly enamoured with the very OS embossed run from last year.

Good question. We have our next batch of PDs to be produced in July. Not too far away!

Was there a change to the wing on the DD3? I saw an original "Cloud Breaker" rim depth of 1.2 and recently saw an updated "DD3" rim depth of 1.1. In comparison a PD2 is 1.2 and a DDX is 1.1. That slight difference is enough for me to not really enjoy the DDX as much.

Absolutely. I can't get a good grip on those shallow rimmed drivers. I found the DDX really hard to grip vs a PD2, one of my all time favs.

Per the "PDGA Approved Disc Golf Discs" page I found the information I was looking for. Here are the disc dimensions from the original Cloud Breaker to the retested DD3. I also added the DDX and PD2 to show the similarities between them and the DD3 retest as well:

Cloud Breaker
Max Weight: 174.3gr
Diameter: 21.0cm
Height: 1.8cm
Rim Depth: 1.2cm

Rim Thickness: 2.4cm
Inside Rim Diameter: 16.3cm
Rim Depth / Diameter Ratio: 5.7%
Rim Configuration: 26.25
Flexibility: 12.13kg

DD3
Max Weight: 175.1gr
Diameter: 21.1cm
Height: 1.7cm
Rim Depth: 1.1cm

Rim Thickness: 2.4cm
Inside Rim Diameter: 16.3cm
Rim Depth / Diameter Ratio: 5.7%
Rim Configuration: 26.25
Flexibility: 12.13kg

DDX
Max Weight: 175.1gr
Diameter: 21.1cm
Height: 1.7cm
Rim Depth: 1.1cm

Rim Thickness: 2.3cm
Inside Rim Diameter: 16.5cm
Rim Depth / Diameter Ratio: 5.2%
Rim Configuration: 28.75
Flexibility: 11.34kg

PD2
Max Weight: 175.1gr
Diameter: 21.1cm

Height: 1.9cm
Rim Depth: 1.2cm
Rim Thickness: 2.4cm
Inside Rim Diameter: 16.4cm
Rim Depth / Diameter Ratio: 5.7%
Rim Configuration: 27.25
Flexibility: 12.25kg


The differences from the original Cloud Breaker to the DD3 retest were made bold. I also made the dimensions of the DDX bold that were the same as the DD3. I saw the video of Jussi saying they wanted to make the DD3 retest a little less stable from the original Cloud Breaker. The dimensions make it seem like the offspring of a PD2 and DDX. Hopefully leaning more on the side of a PD2 in feel. We shall see when I get my hands on a few. Keep on hucking my fellow Discmaniacs.

DiscyBusiness 05-21-2019 08:16 PM

I'm excited about the DD3 and Iron Samurai dropping tomorrow, but I'm curious if there's any updated info on when a stock run of the F2v3 will be released? Loving the Royal Rage.

That mad scramble to complete a checkout for an MD3 and DD3 was not fun.

1) put a limit on how many discs one customer can buy on new/limited releases.
2) once you click "checkout" the items in your cart should not be able to be sniped as you are selecting shipping and filling out payment. I had to reselect discs 4 times after selecting shipping.

Being a discmaniac looks like hard work.😥

Literally the reason I have purged all of my discmania.
Side note, I have a c line md4, 3 p line, a glow pd2, and a first run md5 if interested in any. I'll be in Oxford on Saturday for work

Too popular now on release day so I don't throw it anymore?

broomerang 05-22-2019 09:09 PM

I forgot this was the internet and any constructive feedback would be taken as being butthurt.

Too popular, in combination with minimal supply. I've spent 3 years attempting to play the game. It's not worth the 2nd hand market prices when 3 other manufacturers have similar discs readily available at a reasonable price.

The small batch runs force you to buy multiples before ever testing the disc, or run a risk of never having a backup.

There are 183 available at 18 each on the Discmania page right now. Yours truly may also have just about every discmania disc in stock as well as many other awesome dealers also.

It's popular for good reason 😉

Not in disagreement. The current stock does not reflect the small availabilities over the past 3 years. Things may be currently improving, but I have found other options, more readily available and without inflation.

The discmania boat has sailed, and I am indifferent about missing it.

B The V 05-23-2019 06:03 AM

This was honestly one the easiest releases to get what you wanted . I know of at least 4 shops online that were selling, two of which you could see exactly what you were ordering. There were a ton of guys on Facebook selling at great prices too and you could also pick what you got. I'll agree, ordering from Discmania can be a hassle, especially on release day, but there are so many other avenues you could have taken to get what you wanted without the pain that is ordering from Discmania. It is hard to take your complaint serious when there were so many other options to order from.

DanJon 05-23-2019 05:44 PM

Someone posted a DD3 Stamped disc, that was engraved as a Destroyer on the bottom.

Any comment on that from Discmania?

Some comments from facebook:

"Sometimes they forget to take out the embossing plates to switch to another. Honest mistake. We've seen S-MD2 on C-Line ones, stuff like that."

"I had p line MD3s embossed as p line MD4s"

So is the embossing plate what the disc sits on when getting hot stamped? Smart

B The V 05-23-2019 07:49 PM

That was two different discs. Someone having fun.

Shankski 05-24-2019 12:59 AM

So what you’re saying is a disc that has the exact same flight numbers and made in the same factory is part destroyer?!?!?!?

*GASP*

We’ll see if this printing misstep brings the hype train to a halt...

If you tell me the Scorpius or Falcon or Pharaoh has destroyer parts too I’ll show you my surprised face. ������

fishballer06 05-24-2019 08:19 AM

According to Jeff Korns, it was a mistake on Innova's part at the factory and as far as he of DM knows, there were only 1 or 2 that this happened on.

That being said, my DD3's that I received all said "S LINE DD3".

midairmatthew 05-26-2019 11:11 AM

Hey Discmania. I have to know. Are you going to make P-Line PDs again someday? If not, I need to stop throwing mine, because I'm relying on it more and more...

I ended up putting my last driver pro one away. Too invaluable too risk losing at this point.

Iíve started throwing a 167 flat s-line CD3 from a recent run and itís fairly close right out of the box. Nice and straight ropes out to 375

racer93 05-26-2019 01:42 PM

I have found a g* cd2 to be nearly identical to an early s-pd, well seasoned s-pd or p-pd. Might try them...

thatdirtykid 05-26-2019 02:03 PM

Or even a lot of C-CD2 I dropped some beat in S, C, P line PDs from the rotatiob in favor of a C D2

... G-Line is OOP. Not a real solution neither.

You can still find them...

midairmatthew 05-28-2019 10:43 AM

I actually have a G-Line CD2 that I got from a Mystery Box. I dig it, but I'm hoping to get away from discs that I have to make an effort to find...
