These are honestly a piece of disc golf history (to me anyway) since they are the first DM MFG produced discs released to the public. Pretty awesome to have! :clap:

yep, that's why i hit the "complete" button too!

Should be tough for scalpers to turn a profit on these. 8,500 pairs plus we're going to have a stock run soon. I passed when I saw the cost with shipping.

Stock run in Aug-Sept. Still a ways away

It was 10k... And then they dropped 7k more whenever it got down to 800 remaining. All to be gone after about 15-16 minutes.

Crazy how the most popular putter in the world that hasn't been made in over a year can sell once you finally make a few :D

So yeah, 34k-ish P2's sold in the US at retail, plus whatever Europe got. Things are looking good for Discmania now.

Wonder if we ever will get to a point where you can buy what you want when you want it again. . .

In Sweden, could you drive to the factory and browse around?? Worth a try.

That factory is WAY north in Sweden. . i have never been that far north.
Sweden is one of those wierd countries where just 10% of the population lives in the north 50% of the Country

But the factory is far enough north in Sweden to be close to Finland

I don't think that this is Discmania's business model.

Based on past experience, I would not be surprised to see a continuation of the feast or famine, building up the hype, and selling runs of discs instantly at double prices, and with lots of profit. As long as the hype trains keeps going, it works.

I disagree. I think that feast or famine business model was a product of being at the whims of Innova production. So of course they would hype their signature discs, and then Innova only makes 3000 so they sell out instantly.

With their own production, I see their signature discs being like this P2 drop where they sell out, but I think they will have a continuous stream of stock discs being produced until their numbers level out and they can be in stores regularly.

I would go with referring to the Innova molded Discmania discs as PM’s (pre manufacturing) because we all know anything with the PM moniker will sell like hot cakes.

yeah, but aren't there some pre flight number DM discs? I like the idea, but am afraid it would just get too confusing. Maybe PS, Pre Sweden.

Amazing how this thread comes back to life now that DM plastic is available again. I love it.

klodkrawler05 06-23-2021 10:03 AM

It is pretty cool, but it's also drifted pretty far, the last 100 or so posts would've been far more pertinent to the DM splits with Innova thread, than the "ask discmania" thread, although I realize DM doesn't actually post here all that often.

Ok, heres a question for Discmania:

How did you decide on the 5 discs you were going to produce? I'm assuming it was based on sales, but it must also have to do with the Signature series discs.

Are you planning on making a Night Strike 4? If so, do you plan on creating your own blend of Color Glow C-Line? (The original color glow is my absolute favorite plastic from any company, ever).

ArtemisClydFr0g 06-23-2021 01:39 PM

Here's another question for Discmania. I know this is WAY down on the priority list, but once you have a healthy stock of Originals on the market, do you think we'll ever see a beadless, slightly understable putt and approach disc?

I bag a Deputy in Classic Blend and Lucid plastic because neither Innova or Discmania have a disc that feels right for me. I've tried the D-line and S-line P1x, but I just don't like beads. I do hope to beat something stable into the ultra straight flight I get from the Lucid Deputy, but I prefer premium plastic due to the rocky courses I play on. If I were designing the disc, I'd want something slightly slower than the Deputy to reduce the tiny bit of dump at the very end of the flight on shorter shots. It flies pretty fast and can sometimes overlap with my MD. Maybe in 2023 my dream will come true...

Nate Perkins has confirmed that a NS4 is coming and that he's excited because no DM series has every gone past a third version. However, his mystery boxes that he sold at the beginning of the season also had a note in them saying that no color glow FD will ever be produced again. Obviously that could all change now, but that's just the info that's been publicly made so far to my knowledge.

This. So much this. I'd love a truly understable putter out of the box. Something that just slowly goes right on the first throw out of the box would be amazing.

2022 for sure. The remainder of this year will still bring a ton of new products but since everything will be so new, it's just bound to happen. We'll be silently working in the background to bring the heat next year. It just takes time.

Oh they're coming. Remember that quote from Pineapple Express where the crime lord says "We shall strike tonight, with full force"

It won't just end at five total, though, just the five we've promised to be released this year. P2, MD3, PD, DD3, FD.

There's always plans for new signature discs :). Name potentially TBD but we've got you covered.

How about the Logic?

Jolt 06-23-2021 02:31 PM

An US putter from Discmania?, i dont think that will happen...Discmania dont do US putters and mids (and only super US fairway and drivers)

turniphead 06-23-2021 02:43 PM

I feel a little silly admiting this, but I am worried sick every time I throw my D-Line FD at this point. It's a magical disc that I can flip on wacky lines, low power, easy rollers from bad lies, etc etc etc. I would have bought 10 of em last time I restocked if I had any idea the drought we'd be in. Do you have any plans to have baseline versions of some of these molds? I also love my D-Line MDs. What are the chances we get some kind of baseline Origin or other neutral mid?

Flick Maniac 06-23-2021 03:02 PM

Exo Origins were at the Europe store launch.

Guys you need to try the Logic too

Monocacy 06-23-2021 03:37 PM

Question for Discmania:

Once you get the new operation up and running, are you likely to make drivers in the 150-162 gram range? I have bagged quite a few Discmania discs over the years (S-FD, S-CD, S-PD, P-PD, S-CD2, etc.), but when I switched to lighter drivers it became difficult or impossible to find discs at my preferred weight.

Thanks!

ttstreamer 06-23-2021 04:02 PM

I would also like to know if P3x will be available in 2022? And if it will be available with stiffest d-line plastic and c-line or s-line plastic?

OK, thanks for the hints. Honestly, the color glow FDs are some of the best discs ever made in my opinion. Hopefully whatever you are planning can compete. I'm just glad I have a couple backups for my NS3!

Pretty sure I got a Geo Origin in one of my mystery boxes, but I could be mixing that up with a Method.

Flick Maniac 06-24-2021 04:37 AM

Oh yeah. Geo origins in the starter boxes that have Geo Link, Origin and Essence

The Geo Essence is probably what you need for sure. These are available in both Europe and US.

Thanks!

It will definitely remain a goal to get weights in this neighborhood but even in 2022 we're not certain it will happen. 165-169g weights should always be an option for now, though.

Difficult to say. Most likely not the case in 2022

Jolt 06-24-2021 09:39 AM

if all the P2s they have made so far sold out in 14min and they said that the machine would not stop to make P2s until the demand was meet. . . .

well then when will they have time to do anything else but P2s ?

I hope they use the $300,000+ they made off the first release to buy another machine.

I hope this is not a serious statement. If it is, the idea is in the realm of "not even wrong".

Wasn’t it like 8500 sets at $36 per? I went to public school though :D

ray1970 06-24-2021 12:02 PM

Obviously I wouldn’t expect it any time soon but I would eventually love to see some P3X’s. Not sure if they’re big enough sellers for Discmania but they’ve always been high on my list of favorite putters off the tee. They’ll handle a strong shot off the tee with a reliable finish but aren’t as beefy as something like a Zone or Harp.
