Jussi hinted at a stable fairway at one point. Thats all I know. Other than that I have no intel about whats coming out this year. Last year was cool when you knew what was slated for release, even though the wait was even worse then, knowing. :D

^^^ This

I just want to try an S-CD2. From what I hear it might fill a slot in my bag. In the meantime I am trying other discs.

If one of those other discs fills the missing slot in my bag, then I suppose Discmania will sell slightly fewer discs.

When two similar molds are competing for a slot in my bag, the winner is often the one that is readily available.

Jenga54 02-03-2018 09:59 AM

I've heard the SFD and SPD will be back in stock in the next few weeks.

Also, Facebook just showed me a stock stamp C-Line PDX

we got another redditor

I don't think it's metal, I believe it's mylar. That'd render the reddit theory.. wrong ;)


I've flown with MF discs, they didn't raise any interest.. so I really don't think it's metal.

racer93 02-05-2018 05:41 PM

Just thought I'd pop my head and and thank DM for the Doombird FD3! What a great disc. It flies just like my KJ TBs but 40-50' longer. Very predictable and trustworthy. Keep them coming!

Interestingly enough, the discs show up as blue on the x-ray, and usually blue means metal. Thats where the metal salts as weighing agent theory comes in. Generally plastic is orange on the screen. In any case, whatever the color, often operators have no concerns over them, unless something funny comes up on the image in combination with them, or if there are so many at such an angle that it is not clear if something else could be under there.

Lets all just call it what it is. No use of denying it anymore.. It's Glitter.

So pieces of glitter flakes that are big enough for us to see, are going to slice apart C-C bonds in the polymer chains? :doh:

They definitely cause the polymer to grow/form around the flakes, but I doubt it changes the chain length or anything at all significant during polymerization. Maybe little pockets form around the flakes or something eventually. Tell the redditor they are wrong.

Honestly I wouldn't know. I could imagine having foreign objects embedded in the plastic making a difference, but it's not my field. I'm glad we have so many experts here though, that's why I brought it up! I get it, it's a dumb theory, case closed.

Yep, and I know you're just repeating something so don't take it aggressively/personally.

The P-Line ones are definitely a bit straighter in flight and will break in quicker. S-Line is always more durable and should handle some more snap. Most MD3 lovers tend to have a P-Line in the bag and look forward to seasoning it just right so they can pull off some amazing shots with them.

You may get your wish with something special this year. Hard to say exactly what that mold may be, though :)

suggestion something along the line of a speed 4 glide 3 turn 0 fade 2?

and BTW love my Discmania toque there seems to be two runs one with a bright orange pom pom on top and one without cool stuff.

There will definitely be some brand new discs coming out this year. We would expect there to be some buzz in the air fairly soon. **no Discraft pun intended

This is a project that we have been working on. Discmania has taken over full distribution in the US and all orders have been pumped up considerably with production. Though there may be a small delay in the supply chain during this time, you can expect to see just about everything you need very soon.

There will be many new releases this year! The PDx just was set loose today and we have more to come soon. Discmania has some great products of all kinds just on the horizon.

There is a brand new run of S-Line PD on the website already for sure. S-Line FD's are just about to be made so likely by the end of the month we should be back on track.

We have all kinds of awesome things coming. You can definitely count on a brand new mold or two that will be unleashed this year.

CD2's are another thing that are coming. C-Line for sure will return in full force, though there are always some in stock on the store usually. As far as S-Line goes, you never know! :) The glow ones are amazing by the way. These are just as grippy, if not more, and fly just like an S-Line one does.

Doom Birds will be back again soon! We are glad you like them and know that it makes a great tool to have in the bag always.

I will second this, the glow CD2s are great, very flat and gummy. Great flight and great plastic.

B The V 02-12-2018 08:47 PM

Are the new DD'S domey or flat?

icebat 02-13-2018 01:42 PM

Any chance of color glow CD2's in the future?

Anthony_G 02-15-2018 03:38 PM

Seeing all the stacks and stacks of new P2s all over online stores social media accounts is making me super jealous. I keep hoping they are P3s but nope. :(

P-Line MD3's will return. Possibly even the Driver Pro ones one day but no promises on those. We have a lot of production orders in place at the moment and they just need to be added into the mix when there is time. 2 months tops we should be back on track with just about everything.

P3 is another mold that needs to be made. They will be for sure, but other molds like the FD and CD2 are ahead of the others at the moment. 2 months time and we should be good to go with just about everything we need.

Glow CD2's most likely will be at least a year before they are run again. Perhaps there could be another sweet version of the CD2 though this year. Who knows!?

The new run of DD's have a little bit of dome. Pretty much in between flat and domey if that helps. I know that isn't terribly specific but I'm sure you get the point :)

You can't play with my emotions like this. Ha ha.

P-Line MD3s are one of my favorite discs to throw and I have been reluctant to throw them lately as I don't want to lose them as I thought they were going OOP. Glad to hear I can continue to run chains with them. Thanks for the great info!!!

racer93 03-02-2018 03:12 PM

Does anyone know if the latest swirly P2s are fairly soft/gummy or more stiff? I LOVE the softer ones and would like to get more. Also, for some reason, the stiffer ones are more understable when used as a driver...anyone else notice this?

The latest run is fairly stiff I suppose. I still would imagine that they are more understable than the other ones for sure, including the stock S-Line ones. It's been a while since the gummier ones have been around here anyway.

Admittedly, they have been gone longer than we would like. We ended up with the driver pro ones instead which was a nice surprise but the stiff P-Lines will return. We missed the window on production on those but they have been put back in the mix and for sure will be run again. Just a matter of time.

jjsl14 03-07-2018 08:42 AM

I am hoping that when you release new runs that you would provide ORANGE discs in many different weights. For example the S-Line CD3 stock release didn't have orange ones at all. Take this into consideration when publishing new releases and new runs. We color faithful noobs would musch appriciate :D

connorendy 03-07-2018 02:01 PM

I have an X-Out gremlin that I received in a mystery box that is stamped as D-Line, but on the underside in pen it says S-Line, yet it doesn't feel like either. It also has Ontario as the factory it was made in, and it has patent numbers. I was wondering if you could tell why it might have been an X-Out or if there is anything special about the disc. Hopefully, the image works.

mgamache8 03-07-2018 09:42 PM

How are the new runs of pds flying?(s and c-line)

Also, are the rumors of new runs of metal flake and glow pds true and if so, when can we expect them? How do they fly?

Okey. Not in Finland though. Or I was just too slow :D

JR Stengele 03-09-2018 02:17 PM

Is the p1x similar to the p2 as far as stability and dome, but just with a bead?

gerth_vader 03-10-2018 01:06 AM

no, its not as hss. more like a p1 with a bead. best bet would be a kc pro aviar. the p1x is the vtech bottom with the aviar p&a top. in dline its flies like a beat in dline p2 and feels similar and in pline it flies like a mcpro and feels similar

These are S-Line but just mis-stamped initially. The GM in general was produced in a blend between C and S-Line, closer to C-Line typically, but was always labeled as S-Line. There is nothing crazy special about it other than the fact that people don't really throw them much even though they are a pretty neat mold. As far as collector value goes if that's what you mean, probably not.

The new runs of PD's are pretty overstable for the most part and relatively flat. The rumors are indeed true about the Metal Flake PD though and these are a touch less stable and have a little more dome. Tentatively 3rd run qualities if that helps narrow it down. Maybe not 3rd run collectability yet but they fly amazing and have awesome glide and a very responsive flight. Definitely no meat hook by any means.

Pethor 03-20-2018 01:24 PM

Two questions:

1) Any chance of seeing swirly or regular S-line MD3s anytime this year?

2) Any time frame on the retooled FD2?

Great questions! There are very good chances of that happening for sure! Time frame for the new FD2 will definitely be sooner than the MD3 but you should find both dreams to come true.

D-Line P3x's are a thing and a very good thing at that. Stay tuned and you will find your answer very soon. Great addition for windy putts if your P2 has some struggles out there.

The Metal Flake PD's don't come in lighter weights for this batch unfortunately
