DD vs DDx
 
Few years ago I used to throw the Discmania DD as my go to distance driver. S as my workhorse and a season P for straighter shots.

Haven't really touched Discmania since I dropped the DD and PD, but I always thought those were two very solid molds. Still have a few in storage.

Recently I've noticed the DDx seems pretty popular, and I can't find a soul talking about DD's anymore.

From what I've read it seems like the DDx is more neutral? Do they share anything beyond name? Wing parts?

Surprised no one really throws DD's. They season nicely, cover a good range of stability and they're comfortable in the hand. They flew a lot like the Wraths I bag now, which are one of my favorite drivers.

The DDX is basically a Tern X, a slightly more stable Tern. The DD is slower and more stable. I believe the DDX is the Tern bottom coupled with the Discmania Anhyzer top. The DD is the Wraith bottom with the Anhyzer top

Overshadowed by PD perhaps. I bag 5 PDs and haven't even tried a DD. Just happened to try PD first and fell in love with it. It is marked speed 10 while DD is speed 11 so not much between them and PD is probably more versatile for most people. Whether or not they are true to their rated speed ratings is another question. I feel like PD is more like speed 9 personally.

I bought two DDs when Wraiths were my go to distance drivers. At my power, about 350 to 370, DDs were short for their speed and way more OS than I expected. Hate them, and I keep them only to throw over water.

My DDxs were promising at first, but just lack Tern glide and distance, and my two in S didn't stay OS long so they just became shorter Terns. I haven't given up on the C, but I would rather not have any C/Champ drivers.

I really haven't liked any Discmania with that odd top. Verdict is not in on the PDs I'm trying out next to Thunderbirds.

You feel like the PD is a speed 9 because that is what it is. A 1.9 rim should always be called speed 9.

Current JL DDs are OS as all hell. Totally different animal.

PD'a are speed 9 if we're going purely by wing width. Used to throw them and OLF's quite a bit, always wondered why two discs from the same manufacturer with the same wing widths had different speed ratings :)

PD's for me acted more like a longer fairway and DD's like a slower distance driver. They don't overlap too much IMO, no more than a PD and Destroyer do.

S-DD's are pretty much the coveted longer Teebird.

C Lines can be pretty beefy, but so can Champ Teebirds.

I've never thrown a DDX, but I did hold one, and it felt kind of wonky.

Everyone says they bomb out of the box, but I prefer beat in stable/OS drivers for max distance.

I thought the thunderbird was the "longer teebird" but i've never thrown an s-line DD.

The DDX does indeed bomb out of the box, and feels similar to a tern in the hand and in flight. Not enough throws with mine yet though so I cant say too much about it.

With your power I don't think that the DDX is a necessary disc. A stable one may absolutely bomb if you hit the right lines though. It's got some HS turn like a stable Tern but more of a finish to get it to fight out. Actually thinking about that and how high you like to throw discs I bet you could pump it out there really far if it's the right stability of one.
