Sent him a picture of the disc on a table and he made it right. Like flick said that was uncharacteristic if anyone Iíve talked to from dm

I bought one around May that was had the penned weight and mold on the bottom. I believe it is the current 13th run but wanted to confirm if they released embossed versions of the PD later in the year. I just ordered the 10th anniversary stamp (embossed) and though it felt a little different than the one I bought earlier in the year. A little more dome, slightly less stiff feel.

Any thoughts?

There were multiple runs of PD this year. The most recent run (13th) is the only C that is embossed/etched. Your penned one is from a previous run. The 10th anniversary is 13th run and BEEEEFY.

Thanks for the info! I think this penned run is decently OS as well and definitely a stiffer plastic. Also more of a flat top compared to 13th run. I have to look into 12th run PDs.

I need some luster cd2's! Can we expect those to be run at some point?

racer93 12-22-2018 05:14 AM

If anyone is looking for one, I got one of the VERY high PLH S-Line PDs in my mystery box. It looks seriously beefy compared to my other S-PDs...

Grippenripp 12-22-2018 09:33 AM

Grabbed an MD5 last night, it was between that or the MD on trying something new. I love it. OS for sure. But not uselessly OS. More straight to fade before that classic Gator dump kicked in whereas the gator seem to hold more of a hyzer I guess an arcing hyzer I mean to say then of course the dump at the end. In the hand the MD5 is comfortable for any grip it's very stramline where the Gator, I found to be bulky. Even got to test it into a headwind 5-10 MPH. No effect at all on the flight. This is based on about 50 throws with it this morning more testing still in order.

I finally got around to opening my large 1st edition mystery box because I had it shipped to my parents where packages don't get stolen. One of the two specialty stamps is a misprint with 4 stamps on it. It appears they did this because the first foil stamp didn't fully take hold. It's not a bad looking disc, but I don't think it's really one of the two specialty discs I was guaranteed. I watched a few unboxing videos on youtube and they got two non-misprint specialty stamps, so I can't help but feel I got kind of shafted.

I've included a pic. Feel free to put me in my place if you disagree, but I wanted to see if anyone thinks this is worth emailing them about.

"The special feature of this box is a brand new Discmania Special Edition disc, stamped with an all-new Thoughtspace Athletics designed specialty stamp that is not yet available anywhere else!

This is my first year getting their boxes. I got one from each edition and so far Iím not extremely impressed with my 2. I feel like they put a lot of unpopular molds in them to get them off their shelves. Iím not disappointed but I doubt I will be getting a box in the future

Iíve bought at least one for a few years. Pretty typical spread this year. I dont need the MF MD5 but itís a cool disc. I got a lot of stuff I donít throw this year but itís random. Itís not going to be a cart of your favorites but thatís part of the fun.

I wouldnít say these were unpopular molds at all. CD2, DDx, P1x, P3, MD5, new swirly s-line FD2. CD3, swirly FD3.

Nothing is making the bag but thatís more due to the fact that my bag has been set for awhile. Iíd bag the MD5 if it was beadless.

Plenty of people will be happy to receive these in trades over the next month or two.

What molds are those? Iíd be willing to trade you for that crazy stamped one.

I hope everyone is happy with what they got. I got some good stuff donít get me wrong but one of my boxes came with a gmd, cmd, cmd2,and 2 mf md5s. I wasnít expecting anything crazy but I also wasnít looking for 6 mids

racer93 12-25-2018 08:04 AM

Saw the video from Jussi about the new DD3. I'm still standing by my prediction that it's the retooled PD2 (aka glow c-line PD2). His description of it being a "PD2 for the masses" is exactly it. I'm glad it's coming out for good now! Awesome disc...

Flick Maniac 12-25-2018 08:45 AM

People are saying more glide than glow PD2s. Or a distance driver version of S-CD2. Cant think of a combo I would want to throw more than exactly that. Going to bite my lip though and wait for spring. Cant afford a box right now and theres too much snow to really get a good test anyways.

I've been testing an MD5 and love it. You're gonna have to go Caiman I believe.

Eagles vid today was pretty sweet. Seems like a great destroyer clone. I too will need to wait for production releases. It looks like I can sell off some PD2 backups though to pay for them which is great.

Also note that he only threw the majority of the PD2s about 460 on what appeared to be flat/flex lines.

That made me feel like I can throw decently far, not Simon/Eagle/Paul/Seppo far but decent.

Merry Discmas!

Tolexi 12-25-2018 01:29 PM

Yeah eagle's max was 500ft with PD2 but he wasn't even trying. He can throw that 500ft with a steep hyzer

P1X | Judge | Harp | Roc/3/x3 | FD | TeeBird | PD | Destroyer | DD2

The misprint is an FD2, regular stamp is a CD2. I haven't thrown the retooled FD2, so I'm going to give it a shot in the field when we get a warm day. If it doesn't click for me I'll PM you.

B The V 12-31-2018 10:32 AM

DD3 is PDGA approved as as of 12/28/18.

broomerang 01-04-2019 06:17 PM

@DM

DD3 mold pieces? Anything completely new? What's the best disc to compare it to?

Destroyer? Boss?

B The V 01-09-2019 02:13 PM

I wish Discmania would have the presence in this thread that it used to. I understand they have moved. I understand they are big on Facebook and IG. I just feel it takes 5 minutes a week to keep up to date on this thread.

hurricaine 01-09-2019 02:57 PM

the collector's/throwers facebook page is hell. probably 1000 mystery box posts since they launched. its awful

UhrigDG 01-09-2019 04:22 PM

I hope they haven’t outgrown us.

While I don't mind seeing photos of discs, I do mind the rest of the FB crap that is unavoidable.

Also I think DM needs a throwers community not a collectors page. It's a crime not to throw these wonderful discs.

I don't know how many "What run PD2 is this that came in my mystery box?" posts I've seen lately, but I wish someone would figure it out.

There's the Thrower/Collector group.

Flick Maniac 01-10-2019 10:31 AM

I thought thats what he was referring to. Its been a pretty heavy onslaught of DD3. Although I do understand it, but it tends to make the talk less noticeable. Unless you also put a "pic for attention" on it.

B The V 01-14-2019 07:19 AM

Do the Freak X PD's have the same overstable beef as the recent c lines that came out recently?

Totally agreed. The collector group started out as such but has grown into much more. I think that the Discmania Only auction page was also created in an effort to negate so many sales posts but we haven't seen much of a dent. It's certainly worth trying to create another page that's just to show the love of the game and no sales. Trades theoretically could be entertained I'd imagine.

We're coming back. Admittedly we haven't been nearly as diligent on here even before the move but I think there is a good flow now after this transition to where you can lean on us in this thread just as much as you used to. You all deserve the best we have to offer, always.

There are definitely goals but no solidified plans at the moment. We haven't found something suitable yet but you can be sure that sort of thing will come without a doubt

DLine MD is out now. Also grab an embossed run P-MD3 and within 2-3 wooded rounds it will be standing up and ready to be cycled for all your flat to glide-to-right needs.
