Roll with your G-FD as your workhorse for awhile and it'll get flippy after a couple months. In the meantime, you can supplement with the D-FD, but know it is going to be way more understable than any other iteration. And it only gets worse with a couple tree hits. I liked mine for a few rounds, but went back to forcing an S-Line on an anny for understable duties while my G-Line broke in.

i traded a great user on here for a sfd a while back to replace one of my perfectly beat stalkers, and well i really took a liking into it. a lot. i have thrown stalkers since my first year i started. i was told the different stabilities of the plastics with the fd can cover all my fairway shots so im trying them out... and i couldnt pass up a pink gpd. haha. xouts cuz i dont give two craps about the stamp, its just cosmetics

G-PD and G-FD have both made my bag alongside their stiffer counterparts. Loving them.

Anyone else tossed a CD2? Debating picking on up as an OS complement to my Hatchet, which I max out with at about 330 feet. Would a G-CD2 be good, or should I go with a regular CD?

sjberry2017 12-01-2014 01:53 PM

I just ordered a C-line CD2 this morning, hopefully I'll get it Thursday and be able to get out and toss it between classes. I decided to not try G-line for this disc, so hopefully they make some in S line, otherwise this C-line may be the only one I need

DinosaurThunder 12-02-2014 02:10 PM

Jussi just announced on twitter that Discmania is releasing a new product on Friday and he predicts it will be the biggest release of the season. What are your guesses/hopes??

I have one in the bag I throw regularly. For my arm speed/style the CD2 flies like a longer seasoned first run FD with a nice fade at the end of the flight. This disc is very workable and can hold some fun lines! The control of this disc is becoming more apparent as it slowly gets beaten in after each round. I have a first run g-line coming my way I am itching to get out and compare with the C-line. I think the CD may be a nice compliment for what you are looking for.

Thanks. I am still on the fence about this and might give a light MOLF a shot in this slot, since I have one in the garage. But the CD2 does sound tempting in G-Line, so I am hoping it goes to production soon.

As for the new release, I have no earthly idea what would sell well for Discmania right now. Maybe something legit understable? I know most people like beefy discs, though, so I am going to guess G-PD2.

skizzle34 12-03-2014 10:16 AM

I have a feeling it will be their shoe. I remember seeing awhile ago that they had a shoe in the making. I DG specific winter coat would be awesome though!

My dreams, make them come true.

We will keep this in mind for future productions

Have you seen the new 2015 JL MD2s. (http://store.discmania.net/index.php...-line-md2.html) We were looking to replicate the first run MD2's flight. It is a tick more overstable when brand new, but when it breaks in this thing is laser straight. We haven't had it too long but we have found It has a unique flight path, it doesn't want to turn as much as all previous runs of MD2. I would certainly recommend trying this one. I have 3 in the bag now.

We do have some, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. There are a pair of red 168g PDs on the shelf that are very flat and waiting to be thrown.

The production run is coming soon for both the C-LINE and G-LINE. they should be available pretty soon.

We will keep the S-LINE CD2 in mind for future production.

The CD2 is a disc that's a lot straighter than the CD. If you were looking for an understable compliment to the C-LINE CD2, we would recommend the G-LINE CD2. We have found that the G-LINE CD2 is really good at higher altitudes, in cold weather, and for longer anhyzer shots.

Dang it....I may have to pick up a Lizotte hat to go with the AJ ones just ordered.

Thanks for the heads up on the flat GPD, I had ordered a red 167 on the recommendation of someone from customer service to take advantage of the Black Friday sale. Hopefully it's nice an flat too!

We will keep the S-LINE CD2 in mind for future production.

Got my C-line CD2 today, going to be tossing it tomorrow when I go play between classes, looking forward to seeing how it flies. I may end up trying a G-line as a US compliment like you mentioned to someone else, but I really do hope that S-line does get to future production. Either way, really like the feel in hand of the CD2, looking forward to tossing it tomorrow.

skizzle34 12-04-2014 05:37 PM

Any plans in the near future of making a destroyer killer? I bag 2 dd2s and a pd2 but there is still that slot right in between that I would love to fill that the PD2 is just a little too overstable for and the dd2s turn too much. Mainly on those 10mph wind days that doesn't justify a PD2 but the dd2 can't stand up to.

adjust your release angle

skizzle34 12-04-2014 07:36 PM

Hyzer flipping into a headwind in my experience seems to eat up distance and is less consistent than throwing a more stable disc. Thank you for your input. I still want a discmania destroyer...

Flick Maniac 12-05-2014 04:02 AM

I'm thinking G-PD2 might come close...

Aveksi 12-05-2014 05:05 AM

You should try the C-DD. In my opinion stability is right between DD2 and PD2. No turn in calm conditions and slight drift in headwinds.

skizzle34 12-05-2014 09:34 AM

I have beat in PDs that are like that but I would like something a little faster and in s line. I have come to dislike c line, champion, or z type discs. They always seem too slick and hard especially in late fall-early spring.

I would typically agree with that statement in regards to drivers; however, I have no problems with grip with my Champ mids, but that may just be the design. However, the C-line CD2 I just got (I know everyone has to be getting tired of me posting that) grips beautiful. The plastic is really firm but not slick at all.

skizzle34 12-05-2014 11:06 AM

I had mainly Champion type plastics in my bag at one point but S line PDs made me love the softer more tacky plastics.

Columbia gorge 12-05-2014 08:23 PM

So what's the big announcement that is supposed to happen today?

Sir-Hucks-A-Lot 12-05-2014 08:30 PM

New Lite baskets...look pretty sweet, and the price (in Euros, though, I believe) of 49.99 is unbelievable!

I'd love to see Discmania do another run of the R-Proish blend of P-Line MD2's! Just like the first runs that were flat and gummy.

onemilemore 12-08-2014 02:00 PM

Just a thought...Has there ever been any thought given to sending new discs to forum testers to generate a little more buzz? For example, I am sure there are people who want to take the plunge on the CD2, but are waiting for some more impressions from others. Perhaps getting them out into the hands of people who can comment on them might drive some more sales.

New013 12-08-2014 03:02 PM

holy **** i'm hyped about these lite baskets, definitely going to buy one when they go on sale.

probably more often than i should haha

We don't have an interest in making a "destroyer killer". That being said, our newest run of S-LINE DD2s are very overstable, even more overstable than our C-LINE DD2s. You can certainly throw these DD2s in the wind.

there is a lot of speculation about the G-PD2. Can you fill me in more on why you think it will be this way? We haven't made it yet so there's no official answer, but discussion is always good.

If you want a faster PD, try the DD. We have flat S-LINE DDs on the Discmania Store. They are pretty overstable.

Yeah, we really like that plastic too. It's a very good combonation. The 2014 Jolly Launcher C-LINE MD2s are made of the same plastic.

That's very good insight. Is it strictly for the grip? We find most people stick with the C-LINE for durability.

We have thought about that. Do you guys have any other outlets besides this forum? It makes it a lot easier to commit to something like that if we could get exposure in multiple places.

For the most part the S-LINE FDs come out very similar. Every now and then we find one that feels harder and "tight" across the dome of the disc. Meaning it doesn't flex as far. These FD's have tested more overstable, but we rarely see them. The S-LINE FD is a pretty constant disc.

Please feel free to comment on what you guys think of the consistency of the S-LINE FD.

Yes the X-LINE has a concave top. This has really proven to be helpful for spin putters and push putters alike. We do not plan on making more discs with this top in the future. But, the people that have helped test the disc stated that concave top really helped them get a better grip on the pinch point. This top to give the player a better grip and gave some of the best results during testing.

Thanks for the questions guys.

What do you think of the new putter?

andrewv 12-17-2014 07:07 PM

Let me first say rarintal is possibly the best writer on DGCR- always so professional and thorough. Really impressive because you only need to read posts from everybody else to see it's not an easy job. Besides 150 class p-pds (would love to be able to buy more, cough, cough) being the best driver for ams out there, his posts really make me want to support the company.

At the end of a very long and surely time-consuming post, I think this last sentence fragment was part of a draft that became the sentence prior...:

Overall it's a great disc; it
s been my go-to for thumber shots surprisingly. Took it to a course that I played a tourney at and parked a hole with a thumber that I had consistently foured or worse during the tournament (Hole #9 at Timmons Park). Backhand, it's pretty stable, which is about what I would expect with my arm speed. If there's a headwind it'll get a hint of turn, but overall it's a pretty dependable disc.
