I asked locally and the Metal Flake FD3 wasn’t available to retailers, unlike the Rainmaker (I’m staying with the P2). I hate paying taxes AND shipping… but I grabbed two FD3 anyway because wife said ok. Wanted to feel them first. No wing image Discmania?

I held off on the fd3. It was in my cart, but figured the wife wouldn't have been ok with the putters and the fd3s.

Was a tough call... Debated whether I wanted to argue why I needed more drivers.

Hi Discmania - Follow up from a year ago:

S-FD used to be my workhorse fairway driver, and I miss it since switching to lighter drivers (162 grams or less). Recently, Innova produced a batch of light Star Hawkeyes (S-FD equivalent, as I understand it) so I ordered a pile at 162-163 grams to test.

I realize that Discmania has a ton on its plate right now. Perhaps lightweight S-FDs will be available by 2023? I may need some backups by then. ;)

There are lots of creaky old disc golfers like me who prefer lighter discs. I suspect that Discmania is missing part of its potential market.

I have bagged quite a few Discmania discs over the years (S-FD, S-CD, S-PD, P-PD, S-CD2, etc.), but when I switched to lighter drivers it became difficult or impossible to find discs at my preferred weight.

Thanks!

It will definitely remain a goal to get weights in this neighborhood but even in 2022 we're not certain it will happen. 165-169g weights should always be an option for now, though.

Discmania has never been big on lighter weight discs (sub 167g or so). If you need a flippier fairway driver, try the Essence and Genius. You'll probably get the flight you're looking for.

Thanks, I will check out those discs.

What I am actually looking for is lightweight and nearly stable (think perfectly seasoned 150s DX Teebird in durable plastic). The S-FD offered that flight plus surprisingly good distance for my creaky old arm.

At one point in time, I was bagging 5 different FD's in varying plastic types and weights. I'm now bagging 2, an Essence, and a Genius. And truthfully, in the woods, I'm finding myself throwing the Essence and Genius more than my FD's.

The Genius is very flippy. Probably very similar to your beat up, paperweight DX Teebirds. But in the premium plastic, it's just what you're looking for.

Allow me to pile on? Find 165-169 Essences. Easy hyzer flip, straight, fade. Easy slight hyzer, flip and glide right, land flat. Easy high anny that stays on line. Thrown hard it’s a brilliant roller, and maybe the longest disc in your bag on a wide open high distance line. My favorite disc is a 166 Essence. The max weights fly like pros throw the FD, but for regular arms.

Essence sounds like a lovely disc and I appreciate the suggestion, truly. But I do not throw drivers in those weights any more.

Companies that offer a good selection of drivers in the 150s (Innova, MVP, Axiom) get my business these days. I would love Discmania to join this group at some point, because I used to throw quite a few of their drivers.

Thanks again!

When are we going to see a stock release of the MD1 in the new C-line plastic?

I would like to see MD3 in Flex3 D-line plastic, any plans for it?

In Simons latest Vlog he said that the MD1 will be his nest sig, disc. . så not a "stock" run but maybe the Simon MD1 will be the Stock one?
