Yup...

I bet soon after DM decides to fully cut Innova loose, Dave comes up with one of his fresh, new mold ideas that look, feel and fly suspiciously like an FD. If only! Fingers crossed.

Imagine them dropping in abundant plastic and weight configs, available in stacks at your local brick n mortar <3

TL3 is already pretty close but yeah, ready availability might take some fun out of chasing FDs. I have a bunch of them, if DM cuts ties completely from Innova maybe I'll be DG rich. True Discmaniacs pay stupid money for what they want.

I have one NS1 and I love it. I don't do Facebook so I have no idea what auction prices are. Dude at my shop says they are going for over $100 these days and now I'm paranoid to throw it.

The problem with selling it or holding onto it is that you could sell it for $100, but then you couldn't turn around and buy the 6 stock FDs you would want to replace it, because the cupboard is bare everywhere. So throw it! :hfive:

EDIT: for example I unloaded a couple of 4 claw Buzzzes recently and bought multiple discs with the spoils, in addition to two brand new 5x ESP buzzzes to replace them! No sentimentality here, just stacks of throwers baby.

Not really a question, but just some excitement. I've been wanting to get a flat and gummy glidey-flying Thunderbird for a long time! They're really rare to find.

I heard a couple people mention that the Discmaniac stamped run of 2019 color glow FD3s flew like a nice glidey Thunderbird. After getting lucky with one on ebay, I put it through a round today, and booy were they right! It's the fingerprinty grippy variant of color glow plastic, and only a mild dome--- great feel in the hand. The flight is magical: looong and glidey, with big fade at the end. I imagine it flies nothing like a normal FD3, and it definitely flies better than a new Thunderbird (especially star ones). I'm getting a 2nd one in soon so I can have two in the bag. I only wish they were more out there and they didn't cost so much.

Just curious...have you tried a Fuzion Getaway? Fuzion is typically gummier than Star and Getaways fly like a glidier Thunderbird. Just something to keep in mind if you have trouble tracking down backups of your color glow FD3s.

The getaway has been a disc I've been thinking of trying out for the longest time, and I've seen a buddy crush with them as well. Very long fliers.

My current bag is only teal-aqua blue colored discs, so the blueish color glow fits perfectly with it. Latitude never seems to make that color in its goldline/fuzion plastic. I have seen some Lucid-X Getaways that are the appropriate color, but I'm not sure if they'd be too stiff and/or overstable for what I'd like. I love goldline plastic but I don't like how fast it beats in.

3 new evolution molds on the way! Mutant will be an OS mid, splice will be an OS fwy driver, and the logic will be a neutral beadless putter to compliment the link!

Idea: Discmania could put this info on the website easy to find?

They will, in time. It is no news that PDGA approval always preceeds the release. The time from approval to announcement varies.
