Why does Discmania keep releasing things I want? WHY!?

I don't know! It's even worse than innova releasing things i don't want!

Jenga54 02-14-2016 02:29 PM

I have a feeling the X Line Will be available Tuesday after the free minis are done. Just going to have to keep ordering stuff over and over!

Jenga54 02-14-2016 10:36 PM

Looks like I'll be making 3 separate orders as they release (please be soon) (please snow go away):
X Line P2s
S Line CD2s (production stamps)
S Line DDx

hey discmania, I love how the factory store lists the runs and intricacies of different runs. Ever consider marking the different runs somehow like millenium does?

D-Line P3s
 
Hello, I have been trying to find some non-first run d-line P3's but they seem to be pretty elusive these days. Wondering when there might be a new production? Would love some stiff P plastic also.

can we get a Ryan ITB video? text is so boring.

I've missed you all!
 
First of all – So sorry on the delay again guys! I might have to start looking for more help to answer more questions for you guys…

Yeah, that’s why I have been having an incredibly hard time getting back to you guys. How excited are you for the first DGWT event?

Sadly even as a discmaniac I have too many gators\firechuckens\rhynos to ever think about realistically bagging md4/p4 etc. I would just enjoy seeing DM answer to some of the mention slots.

Pretty neat about the cd2.

I hope it's clear that I'm just trying to stir discussion, not rag on, troll, or bring down DM.

I understand, thank you for voicing your opinion. We really do appreciate it!

And as long as you’re here, any comments on this very valid point?

I couldn’t quite find the points you were making. Can you please shed some light on it again.

This would be amazing as a mini stamp on a bunch of molds!

I don’t think we’ll see that one because it lacks the shield – which is arguably our strongest branding…

We tried to do a little research but I couldn’t find anything conclusive. We’ll have to do some more digging later after the DGWT is going strong!

I wish it was that simple! It’s very close to what you’re describing – unfortunately I can’t give away all of our secrets.

At the moment all 2nd run C-CD2s are stock stamp …maybe we should do something special.

There were some first runs with mini shield stamps and micro store stamps.

Well we made both for the 1st run. We haven’t been able to keep them in stock to do something special with them yet!

The P-LINE PD is one of the fan favorites for sure. Many people have found the G-PD to fly very close to what the P-PD did and actually switched over. (Another product we highly recommend for those looking for P-LINE PD flight).

That actually might be close if it’s a light weight PD. The 1st run CD2 came out much more stable than we originally intended, the 2nd run is almost identical to the prototypes that people love to throw. It’s a great flyer that more than often exceeds expectations of the disc.

I took it out of my bag because it wasn't much different than a pd. if they made them in s-line I would revisit the mold.

I’m not entirely sure I agree with this. What weight was your 2nd run C-CD2? I am wondering if it got mixed up in your order?

And S FD2...

Well we’ve introduced the S-CD2!

May I ask why you particually think the S-FD2 will be what you’re looking for? Or what are you looking for differently from the S-FD2? Would G or P-LINE version be more what you’re looking for?

whoa whoa whoa that escalated quickly! Would there be another version besides the S-FD2 that may work better for what you all are looking for?

Wish list: S CD2, S FD2, S MD, S P1x

Well if you had to pick 1 of those besides the S-CD2 what would it be?

Well, it was already in the works when you motioned for this “piggyback” move.

Nah, who are we kidding, this is gonna turn into a support group real fast.

Nominations for the leader of the “Discmaniacs Anonymous” group?

Well thank you! We’re really trying to make the best products for the players.

Almost looks like it has a hard ridge in the flight plate.

Insider information - We thought about the CD3 for the new DDx that is coming, but it was going too far to be a “Control Driver”.

p2\md3\fd\pd\pd2 in different flavors and stages of wear is already an extremely well rounded simple bag.

The CD2, Metal Flake FD3, and PDx have been sneaking into bags too!

The S-LINE TD or the TD2 is what you should try to check out. Both around 168-170. Or even the G-TD2

That may do it too.

The TD is one of those hidden gems in our lineup. It’s more of a Turning Driver for the high arm speed pros like Eagle and Simon but it’s a fantastic flyer for almost everyone else!

This winter in -5 (feels like -25) weather I have had no issues with distance or the plastic getting too ridged. When compared to s-lines it doesn't fade back as hard, but that being said it isn't a "flippy machine" by any means. When thrown flat/hard it has a slight turn but flys like a broken in s-line DD at that point. Outstanding mold! I need to get a few orange ones :)

Wait until it warms up, it’s a great flyer!

Not really, most of the FDs have a little bit of a dome – it really makes the disc fly a lot further.

We tried to track this die down.. no luck, we’ll just have to make something new!

Give a lighter weight C-FD2!

It definitely has more glide than it did when I first started throwing it and it hasn't developed any noticeable turn. It's almost been like a PD, where it's lost more of it's LSS and has less of a pronounced fade, but the HSS has remained mostly unchanged. If anything, it's a lot more workable now than it was at first.

All that said, it's still not a second run FD. I use it mainly as an OS mid-range, or when I need to flex a line around something and rely on it coming back.

Yes, it’s a unique disc that does fill the void between the FD and FD3 though. We started out with the 2nd Run C-FD in mind and we would say it’s almost a perfect step up from the FD to FD3.

You guys should try the lighter ones, they are even more overstable.
