I’ve seen that video. It doesn’t say anything about it being a different mold. And the flight looks pretty similar- he’s throwing nearly 400’ with it and it’s straight with a reliable fade.

So, does anyone know what actual differences there may or may not be?

Edit to add: I’ve also looked on the website. Discmania says it’s different, but just says it’s flatter and more reliable with better glide. Pretty vague. I was hoping someone could chime in who maybe knows if it’s still the Teebird wing with the Starfire top or whatever the last retool was. And maybe let us know specifically how the stability compares.

Well I have 60 of them in my basement, what do you wanna know? 😉

Old rim was teebird wing, this wing is just almost straight, it's ever slightly convex.

Almost flat topped. PLH almost identical to the proto SLines. Both measure 18mm rim width

Also it's different than the original FD2 which almost looks like a leopard bottom wing if I had to guess.

The RR-FD2 seems like neither wing or top from those previous fd2

No way. My guy sent me a profile pic and wing pic, NOT a TB at all. I am excited for this disc, once I saw it up close it knocked out the excitement for the Instinct.

Nice! Any chance you could post a side-by-side? How’s the stability compare to the proto S-Line? The one I had last summer was an incredible forehand disc for me- for about a week. Then it just started getting straighter and longer, and didn’t really suite what I had been using it for in the first place. I was really hoping we’d get a run of those that was at least as overstable, and in a more durable(Champ) plastic. This new one ticks my second box. Any chance it ticks the first?

Agreed, said the proto S used the Teebird stripper.

Hard to get the purple proto without light reflection. Oh well

I'm personally going to be waiting for the Instinct, it's going to glide a lot more, sounds like less HS turn too sounds like!

I throw the FD. Glide is covered, as for the FD2 I feel like some field work with it and its gonna be a more versatile TB a little angle seems to have had it flying pretty stable.

Never seen them side by side. Wow!! The FD2 looks money.

I felt one up and they are definitely nicely flat.
