Yes.. 2nd run FD's are very stable!

How come Discmania's poster boy, Simon Lizotte, doesn't throw the PD? Not only is it the best thing DM has, surely Simon has the arm speed for it. I understand he is a minimalist, he has like 15 discs in his tour bag whereas most pros have closer to 25, but there's plenty of room between the speed 7 Jackal and the speed 12 meat hook known as Chaos.

This isn't a criticism, Simon obviously knows what he's doing. Just curious.

Simon does throw the PD. He has a First Run C-LINE PD for straight shots with a fade at the end and a orange early run patent number S-LINE PD that finishes straight for him.

Plus it seems like all his straight shots are mids or putters and anhyzers are with his über beat PD2

That's true! the kid is amazing!

I don't know why he doesn't throw PD's, but he favors FD2's and Firebirds instead.

That's true. Simon has game!

The flat PD2's are First Run PD2s.

It definitely makes for come comedic moments on the course!

This is true. It's pretty funny.

We have made plans to expand the G-LINE line. We will let you guys know when they are available :)

We will keep this in mind for future production.

That is a 2nd run.

They are more overstable, but if you can power them up they fly perfectly straight lines.

mtak127 09-23-2014 11:52 PM

Ok...so....whats the new release.....?

FINNtastic 09-24-2014 01:34 AM

It's gotta be CD2.

heartman 09-24-2014 01:41 AM

new disc = Discmania's equivalent of the Thunderbird?

Flick Maniac 09-24-2014 03:58 AM

I am thinking like a C-PD but with more glide and less fade, perhaps a smidge more turn. A hybrid between C-FD and C-PD. Straight, predictable, controllable. i.e. Musthave. [9|5|-1|1]?

I don't know -- TD is too close to that to have that not be redundant.

8 5 -3 1?

steinkecm 09-24-2014 09:14 AM

Maybe just 7 5 -3 1. Actually an understable fairway.

The PDGA approved discs list from 9-17-14 doesn't have anything new from Discmania on it, so either this isn't approved yet, or it's a C Line version of something that's not already here.

However, that doesn't mean it's not a current mold of Innova (or a past one....), because the Gremlin is still listed under Innova. So it may be something that's already out there and is getting a rebrand or a rebirth.

Rol6566 09-24-2014 09:23 AM

I bet it's already pdga approved but they havent announced it yet. Waiting for discmania to announce it first

Maybe sidewinderish?

hurricaine 09-24-2014 12:32 PM

all this teasing they are doing is actually getting annoying. at least give us a little info if youre gonna post multiple times about upcoming releases

crookymonstar 09-25-2014 12:06 AM

I wouldn't be surprised if this has been asked before, but I love the idea. What are the chances if sometime down the road Discmania releases a true overstable fairway driver? I'd love a small diameter one similar to a whippet or something. That's would make my day. I use the FD every round and plan on replacing my Teebird with an FD2 someday. I think with only two fairway drivers in the lineup both being great, either a super overstable or something less stable than the FD would be sweet

While the FD2 isn't small diameter, it is a true overstable fairway. Give it a try, though unless you're throwing a Brinster Teebird they're not that close in stability. It's more akin to a slightly worked-in firebird.

Thanks for the info and quick response. I'm going to give the Fd2 a try regardless. But I think I was kinda leaning a little more towards something whippet, ram, or viperish. Something just silly overstable. Just wondered if something like that might ever be a possibilty in the line up someday

nailed it: http://store.discmania.net/c-line-cd2-prototype.html

Quote:

The CD2 is our newest disc and is a long awaited straight flying 9 speed driver. This Control Driver gives the player an ability to shape your shots, much like the FD, but it rips down the fairway faster with a little more fade. This disc is rated at 9 | 5 | -1 | 2 . The CD2 has been reported to fly straighter, hit more fairways and to lower scores. Get your hands on one of these 10 limited release discs.

These Prototype CD2s were marked CD. These discs were originally meant to be a re-evaluation of the CD. The disc was so good we decided to make it its own disc. We love the CD2 and know it will help elevate all types of players to the next level.

The Jolly Launcher Thunderbird is more overstable than the CD2.

The CD2 is a completely unique disc, as all of our discs besides 1. It has been approved. The only disc we at Discmania has taken from Innova was the GM-Gremlin.

We usually don't like to compare other discs but I believe the Sidewinder is more understable.

There was only 1 post of a new disc. Then the prototypes were released :)

The FD2 is very overstable. It's like a tank through the wind it goes straight then dumps off pretty hard.

Thanks for that comparison of the FD2!

Do not quote me on this but, I believe the Viking likes to turn a bit more. The CD2 is very straight.

Viking will have a bit more fade than the CD2, theoretically speaking.

you guys are mean picking on us poor poor discgolfers. but thats why we love you.

hellbound 10-03-2014 12:05 PM

rock hill has cd2 in stock this week at the usdgc! Got a buddy of mine to pick me up one. Can't wait to see if it will bump my pd with my arm speed in all. Maybe next spring will be all discmania. Hey you guys want to sponser a profeshional rec player! just kidding. keep the good plastic rolling!

Kodachrome 10-03-2014 09:48 PM

i know it's probably hard to get momentum going, not being as big as innova and whatnot, to use new plastic in your line-up . . . but . . .

for real though, g-line PD2. with some dome like the purple GPD i've got. it would be like heaven. the gstar destroyers are okay, but i have a feeling the g-line PD2 would be the new PD of the distance driver category. of course, of course, that's why it's called the PD2, but the glide gstar adds would be nuts in conjunction with the overstability of the disc.

fasteddie 10-04-2014 09:21 AM

In my personal experience... blizzard plastic sucks.... Most of the molds/weights were too flippy to be much use, at least in comparison to their max weight counter parts. I noticed that the FS has xout blizzard PD2's in stock. Anyone throw these on a regular basis? They go all the way down to 120 g!

the discmania store doesn't even carry them as a stock item atm...

Jozzz 10-04-2014 09:33 AM

I've been asking for g-line PD2s since Discmania announced g-line. I think they would sell tremendously well.

Scared_Discless 10-09-2014 10:09 PM

What Yellow tri-fly dyed disc was Jussi throwing at the USDGC? PD or FD2?

Flick Maniac 10-10-2014 01:45 AM

I am willing to venture PD.

DinosaurThunder 10-10-2014 08:48 AM

Hey Ryan- what year did the s-line DD get the pdga approved writing under the feathers? How long were the s-line DDs without that writing produced?

Thanks!

jskew113 10-12-2014 05:00 PM

I just want to say I really like the new S Line stamps. Much cleaner look. Now I don't have to wipe all my PDs.

Good job.

SpinTV might have the answer to your questions soon. Make sure you're subscribed so you get the notice ;)

spinachd 10-13-2014 10:48 AM

Is there going to be a base plastic P3? If so will the dome remain intact? I am surprised to find that this is my favorite putting putter.

You can find D-line P3s at most shops, including the DM online store! They are listed as first runs for the stamp and are easy to find. Should have no problem making a stash! They go for $10.

Rol6566 10-13-2014 12:05 PM

I'd love a true understable mid. Been beating in a d-Md2 and its still pretty stable. Would love something to turn out of the box

Cool. Any idea if they have the same dome as C-line P3?

Flick Maniac 10-14-2014 02:43 AM

Is the glow P3 the most OS P3? One coming my way as we speak, so I guess I will soon see myself. However I havent tried normal C-line P3.

The D-line P3 I owned had a similar dome to the c-lines.

Hmmm. The glow P3 came in the mail and I was surprised by the amount of dome it has. Put next to my production D-P3s, it was like a whole another disc: D-lines has less dome, but ALSO very different nose and shoulder.

Oh well, I guess it is all cosmetic and matters not a bit, if it is beefy as fxxx. But it needs to be plenty beef to kick out the Premium Jokeri.

DinosaurThunder 10-18-2014 12:47 AM

Any chance for a r-pro/lady line/stupid soft d-line special run Gremlin? Us cold weather players need something with a low shoulder and lots of grip. :) just a thought!
