Oh, and if the benevolent brain trust of Discmania would nod to the peasants, make a CD or TD. Something like a 10 speed that is workable for AM arms. The Mentor is not good. :clap:

What had been the BEST release of the year, all things considered?

I have even cycled the two IS3’s I have, and now I have to decide if I want to pick up, tryout, and possibly bag new ones? Just wondering if this is what we should expect.

And yes, I realize DM is trail-and-erroring with their own production facility. I’m curious if this is how it always was and if you think this is how it always will be now?

I’m in the same boat as you. I bought a bunch of all brands of discs and putters. I finally decided I like the P2 putter just as they were no longer available. The only other Discmania I had was a very overstable C-line FD. The Essence was the first DM disc that I fell in love with. Enigma was the next one I liked.

But, to your question, my most often used release from new Discmania has been the Razor Claw 3 and Sky God 4. My favorites to throw have been the creator Cloudbreaker and the Nordic Phenom. I never go for the FD3 (new MF version) any more. The Mind Bender is growing on me. I won’t pick up an Iron Samurai - it looks more overstable than the c-lineMD3, and I don’t need that.

If I were building a minimalist bag of new DM, it would be:
Flex3 glow P2 (jus saw these)
Sky God 4
Razor Claw 3
Mind Bender
NEO Essence
Nordic Phenom
Cloudbreaker

Heck yeah. Thanks for the response.

Did the creator Cloudbreaker kick the Enigma out of the bag?

The NP PDs are really good. They take the cake for me for best release from DM this year. Workable out of the box for a PD and I really like the flatter tops on them.

RC3 is a solid 2nd. I never really clicked with the Razor Claws until this last run. The RC3 has the HSS I want with the reliable fade I need for this slot in the bag. Made me bag Tactics again.

Awesome to know. I have a neo and an eco hard tactic, and sometimes I feel like Iím tricking myself into liking it more than my old zone. I love the hand feel more, but it never felt as reliably stable-OS. Have you thrown any of those and if so should I hawk them both and replace them with a meta?

This convo also adds another layer to this conversation: my DM-only bag is slowly becoming a Signature-only bag. Do you all see that as an issue? Our current dynamic is this: want an s-line PD? Signature. Less OS Md1? Signature. $$ DDD? Signature. Favorite tactic, soon to be (likely) color glow FD, c-line P2, and onÖ

Again, I know itíll take years to catch up, but Iím worried about the money in my bag with how it exceeds stock discs, replaceability factor, and inconsistencies for future runs. This feels a little different than other companies? Thoughts?

No. I have a 168g Enigma that is my longest disc. The Cloudbreaker I am beating in is getting close, but itís heavier. If they ever make 160 class discsÖ oh baby.

A Zone will go farther than any Tactic/RC mold, imo, which might be lingering in your subconscious. I donít need 50 more feet out of a RC3 - makes it hard to overthrow.

Discmania has Ďcaught upí with demand, I think. They did that while charging $5-10 more per disc for signature stamps. On one hand it helps the pros, so not all bad. DM is close to overplaying the upcharged discs, and they probably realize this since no molds are selling out before replenishment lately. If theyíre business savvy as they seem, this should mean that the stock runs of S-line molds are coming, which is the next avenue DM can use to increase revenue.

I threw ESP and more recently LE Glo Zones as well as glow Gators for years. I like the Soft Tactics fine. They are more inline with a base plastic Zone and do better for me BH and for touch FHs. I wanted the RCs to be that Zone/ Glow Gator utility OS and they never were, esp in the HSS part of their flight. I had decided I was not going to get a RC3. I caved when I saw how nice the plastic was and everyone saying how OS they were and have not left the bag since. I've even purchased backups so I'm all in. I'm going to be cycling softs and a Meta.

Also nothing says that you HAVE to have the signature discs.

I could throw:
P1s
P2s
Tactic

Origin
MD3

Essence/ FD
Instinct
CPD

DD3

I would be just fine and my score probably would not hurt too much.

Anyone else find that the Nordic Phenoms are super durable? I've thrown mine full bore FH into a tree 50' away and no marks whatsoever besides some sap. Not to mention that they're probably the best run of PDs since the P-PDs that felt like S-PDs (I regret trading mine more and more each day).

jskew113 10-20-2022 10:38 PM

Anyone comment on the flex 3 glow P2s?
