Got in a quick test sessions with the P-MD3 yesterday and all I have to say is it was love at first throw. I am guessing that all of the proto's are flattish? Now, I wonder how one of these would fly if it had the same shape as the recent run glow's? I really hope that DM keeps this version of the MD3 around. I can really see myself cycling P and C versions of the MD3 for my midrange slot. I wouldn't be apposed to a run of firm S-Line MD3's either. Those could be pretty sweet flyers as well.

hurricaine 04-03-2015 01:00 PM

are the P MD3's KCP or more of their gummy pro that the PD's come in. PP2's and PPD's feel like different plastic to me, so just wondering before i order

fasteddie 04-03-2015 01:20 PM

I think that this P line run is more akin to KC PRO.

hard/velvet/seasonable is what I've gathered?

Interesting I'll keep that in mind for the future.

Well, we would need a little more than that!

What are first run C-PDs going for these days? 10/10 could be 9/10 not sure if there's storage wear.

Check out the "Discmania Collector and Throwers" on Facebook

We have a had a lot of requests for this. In P-LINE (KC Pro like) and X-LINE. Would you guys be interested in the Driver P-LINE? like the P-LINE PD2 & DD2 plastic?

I used to do this back in the day to make custom band tshirts and didnot feel I was doing anythibg wrong since they were just for me and not for sale.

If you're really interested the proper thing to do would be to email us at Staff@discmania.net

Also-FINALLY max weight p2s-THANK YOU DM

Yeah, Sorry about just fixed the flight numbers for the P2, I accidentally put the P3 numbers in there. We are working on keeping up, you guys love those!

If we would update the flight rating it might make this ---> 2,3,0,2 (the 2 fade is the only thing we would change instead of 1)

Yes, they have tested well. The are very durable too, it took me all winter to want to replace the one I have now.

Thanks!

At the moment Jussi, myself, and the rest of the Discmania staff do most of the testing. As you all know we are very cautious to add new molds. When we want to fill a slot we present the idea and then work together with Dave Dunapace and the Innova Staff to reach our desired goal.

We have a lot of input, be we like to listen to all parties involved. Dave has a lot of experience in this area, his input and opinions are very much valued.

I always thought the PD was Jussi's baby but was told that Dave is responsible for all the design.

Who are you referring to when you say "Not according to a few posters around here that 'work' at innova"?

Pretty sure that Jussi said in the interview they did with him in Disc Golfer that Dave does the design, but the Discmania guys do a lot of testing and consulting; either way they make some great discs, they've slowly been taking over my bag (however, gyro also holds a few slots).

So the first day of spring is Friday, and I'll reask the same question:

Any ideas on when the Lite Basket will be available here in the US? I've been holding off on spending money on a few other baskets because I really think the Lite is going to be awesome! I'd just love to get some idea on a time frame so I can start planning around purchasing one.

What spots are those that the gyro discs are holding down that we don't have? We are working on getting the baskets here and available for sale soon. The basket catches amazing. When we got them to test here in the US we were quite surprised at the level this thing catches. We hope you guys will like them just as much as we do.

There are also other very important members of the family that don't always get their due, but Jussi and Dave are the figureheads.



I have no info on the release, but I can say that the Lite surprises me constantly. I really like it. (lightweight, portable, catches most like a permanent basket)

Exactly. Good job Jamie, thanks for helping answer questions :)

In order of most overstable to most understable

1st Run C-LINE, Metal Flake C-LINE & Glow C-LINE PD (made at the same time as the 5th run), 5th run C-LINE Jolly Launcher, 6th & 3rd Run C-LINE are very close to the same along with the early run S-LINE PD, 4th run and current run S-LINE PD, 2nd Run C-LINE (plus mold) and P-LINE.

There will always be certain discs within each run that will move up and down the stability ladder. For example the hard P-LINE PDs can move up to the stability of the 6th and 3rd run C-LINE PD but they don't stay there for too long.

Definitely more beefy than any recent run's I've thrown, including the 5th run JL's that were advertised to be close to the 1st runs in terms of stability. I have one in the bag to cover those big hyzer lines. Also, though I've not thrown them, the Euro Open glow PD's are supposed to be pretty beefy too.

As far as straight(er) C-lines, the flat, stiff and pearly 3rd runs were awesome, and apparently the new flat 6th runs are similar. I think there are still some 3rd runs floating around out there in the wild and the DM store has the 6th runs (categorized under 'Flatter Jolly Launcher')

Pretty good!

Yes those and the metal flake PDs have some extra fade for sure.

All PD's fly like PD's so don't be discouraged about not being able to find a specific run (though it shouldn't be any trouble) they are all HSS with nice LSS.

It's the best driver I've ever thrown, all plastics and all runs (except for 2nd :)).

Hey, there are some people that call in looking for the 2nd runs every now and then.

The 5th run? was it super see through and had a moderate dome to them?

Here's how I see it. But we are really picking at some pretty fine differences.

We agree, that's why we try to separate out runs on the Discmania Store so you know what you're getting.

this is true. The lighter weight "Flatter Jolly Launcher" PDs were actually a part of the 5th run and have a really "tight" feeling top and are very overstable for lighter discs.

Tern-ish driver is a TD2, maybe a P-Line DD2 for bigger arms. My Terns were rather understable so that's my experience.

Yeah, I agree. More people need to try the TD2, we were testing it with Jussi last time he was here and he was bombing it. Very under rated disc.

Yes, it seems their pros are more about angles with overstable discs and the company's goal is to simplify disc buying, but yet, that's still a major hole in the lineup.

We are working on this disc right now. We want it to be perfect before it comes out, so hold your horses until it's ready to go :)

We are working on getting them available.

we all know (due to runs of JL gators/FTrocs/FTrhynos/*insert*3 etc.) that the capability to produce consistent flat tops in premium plastic is totally possible.

Our first goal is filling the straight to understable midrange, but we most certainly keep these in mind for future productions.

Glow P3 did not do it for me, I am talking about flat Premium Jokeri overstability, like something STUPID OS.

Mid more like Champ Gator stable, fwy more like flat champ Firebird stable. (then again, you can just bag those, even if you are a "loyalist"...)

I think CD2 might be the ticket for the last slot I was jabbering about, just gotta get to know it better.

Thanks!

Good insight. Thank you very much for that.

You should really try the G-LINE PD. We have seen it test a lot like the P-LINE but wear slower and more consistent.

I've been wondering to buy a new one but I've also been thinking is there anything in premium plastic with such a nice straight flight.

There's been much talking about how CD2 is like a longer FD (which my P-PD kinda was) but I'm afraid C-CD2 needs more power to fly straight than what I can throw. So G-line could be better? The only problem is that I prefer yellow drivers and I haven't seen any yellow G-CD2's anywhere.

This brings me to another question. How much CD2 (g-line) differ from (s-line) CD? Or how about the S-line TD, I've heard that those are more straight flying than what you'd expect from a disc that has -2 turn. So if there's someone who has thrown these (P-PD, G-CD2, S-CD and S-TD) I'd love to hear how they compare with each other.


Oh and one more thing. Is there any chance to get those domey glow MD3's to Finland?:)

When new, the P-PD is the most overstable followed by the S-CD, CD2, then TD. When we tested the S-TD we could get it to ride right the whole flight. the G-CD2 would turn a bit but then come back. The S-LINE CD is best described as gently worn in PD, if you're looking for a disc to experiement with try this guy. The P-PD was still a PD when it was new, but then it wore in and became like the CD (straight with a light fade) and then finally to the CD2 flight path. We didn't abuse it further than that because it was no longer a PD at that point.

Personally CD and CD2s never fly right for me. I like glidey discs.

Have you tried the TD2? It's a fun disc for those who like glidey discs.

The CD2 reminds me of a longer 3rd run C FD, I really like it and am trying to work it into my bag more. It's just hard to find shots that my FDs and PDs can't cover.

The CD2 is very versatile. We would say it's one of those discs that really allows the player to control the disc. Meaning: you're the one in the driver seat, you throw it anny it should go right, you throw hyzer and it should go left.

I have two, and they are stiff enough I like them, but I would prefer stiffer. I am betting by the time my PPDs are too beat, My GPDs will replace them, and my S PD will be broken in enough to replace the GPDs... Someday I want all CPDs broken in for all the shots (Believe it or not I used to have Z Predators beat in for the same range of shots). That will be years away though.

Nice plan!

We need more upper 150's P-PDs!

We will keep this in mind for the Discmania Store.

We would consider it in future productions. We would have to run either really soft S-LINE or really hard S-LINE plastic to make it different from the C-LINE version.

I love the new C-DD2's. They flat out crush (I posted a video, over the weekend in the DM collectors group on Facebook, of one of my throws with one). I really hope the current run of C-DD2's hangs around for a while. The plastic feels great and you can really get on one without worrying too much about where it's going.

We really like the response we have been getting from the new C-LINE plastic, the DD2 flys really good in the more grippy jolly launcher C-LINE plastic.

Good response!

How was the Flying Circus?

Thanks for the help!
Al

If you want a straighter flying one try to find a flat one that feels more gummy, the flat is more important the gummy. The newest run is harder feeling and has a smaller dome but theses are closer to the 3 fade. But, the most overstable would be our Glow C-LINE MD3 for sure.

PecosRob...the FD is one of the best kept secrets out there. It is a very versatile disc.

very true. I feel like the US market really has not discovered the FD.

SMD1, Glow CFD2, GPD, GFD - all 175g

Then I grabbed a red hat, some minis and a couple of patches because, why not?

Nice!

See you there!

- MD3's are straighter when flatter in C-line/JL, and I'm pretty sure this is also true for Glow.
- The dayglow/green flat JL MD3's are super-duper point-and-shoot. Ridiculously straight.
- Glow MD3 with dome is what you're looking for as far as most overstable. I will say though, P-MD3's are surprisingly overstable...and the KC Pro plastic feels awesome! They will season quicker too if you like to cycle, JL lasts a long time.

good response Jamie!

Quote:

The flat JL MD3's remind me a great deal of another manufacturer's "modified" popular midrange. I really like the feel of the MD3 and with the release of the P-MD3, the MD2 might leave my bag.

The P-MD3 has been really good disc for us so far. The most I personally beat one was to the same stability of the Innova Mako3. but, once it got there it stayed there and hasn't changed much. please keep in mind this disc was severely abused to get to this point.

The only thing realistically not DM in my bag would be My Envy, Zone, and Destroyer.

My question is should I keep the glow for my OS mid? (Zone covers anything the needs more beef, I bagged a Buzzz OS and didn't even throw it during rounds.)

With the P MD3s out I want to have an OS, a slightly stable, a laser Straight and a turnoever Mid and I might as well have them all be the same mold.

Should I pick up a flat Jolly launcher md3 as this post above says they are unbeleivably straight, or should I stick with my Glow, and see what these KC Pro MD3's are all about? I ordered a 176G Prototype last night.


This coming off of getting a box of 2 2nd run fD. a G, S, and C pD's 2 days ago :p

I have question: what does the envy fly like? My personal set up right now looks like: 180 Glow C-MD3 for overstable shots, 180 C-LINE MD3 (newest almost flat run), 177 C-LINE MD3 (Flat top) for straight shots with a light fade, and 2 P-LINE MD3s one that's straight and one that's super beat.

I think if you were to order a Flat JL MD3 and a P-MD3...they would fit the same niche for a short bit of time, but the P-MD3 would slowly season into a straight to slightly understable mid, where as the flat JL MD3 would stay in the sweet spot for a really long time. So...if you're going to order again, I'd order both and put both in the bag. Then...every time you want to throw the JL, throw the P twice as much...at least for the first month or so and see how it goes. This should help season the P-MD3 and still give you a feel for the flat JL MD3.

That's a good plan.

The P-LINE P1x is a pretty dang good disc! Especially for throwing.

This may simplify my throwing putter setup. Thinking of just going with a D-P1x and my gummy champ rhyno. Played with that setup a few times this week and didn't miss the KC Aviars with different stabilities at all.

A few more D and P line P1x on the way so more testing will ensue!

Please keep us updated on your findings!

I putt with the D version and drive with the X version because of the extra notch of stability than it has over the D. I have some of the P's on order as well. Looking forward to testing these out for short drives. I agree with goeyj about how sweet these are for longer jump putts. They really hold a straight line and they seem to have a little more glide than other putters. Discmania has really hit a homerun with the P1x mold IMO.

Thanks! we have really liked them too.

You certainly need to keep us updated on these. Is there a MD3 thread?

Right now Im only throwing the MD2 for all my mid shots

I have one of the rare pearly/pop top c that is stupid OS that replaced my Glow Euro MD3

1 flat opaque C for my main mid

2 D for straight/understable shots

(pic of pearly MD2 attached)

Those pearly ones are really overstable. They have the same type of shape as the Prototype C-MD3s.

So I am super happy about that and the plastic feels great and flies AWESOME. I love this thing after two one disc rounds, holes between 200 and 520 feet, it is exactly what I wanted. One D line for straight and annys, one c line for beefy straight to fade, and two plines for putting. switching from big beads to the p2 has been great. More throws on Saturday and get to test out the glow md3 I got.

Let us know what you think for sure!

Now, I wonder how one of these would fly if it had the same shape as the recent run glow's? I really hope that DM keeps this version of the MD3 around. I can really see myself cycling P and C versions of the MD3 for my midrange slot. I wouldn't be apposed to a run of firm S-Line MD3's either. Those could be pretty sweet flyers as well.

Thanks for the input! we love to hear you guys opinons!

It seems I need to pay more attention to this thread, thanks Jamie for keeping everyone informed!

Thanks for getting back to me!

Any chance you know if the Flying Circus event in Dallas on Monday will have prototype MD3s for sale? I bought one but wish I grabbed a second for a wall hanger. Ordering from the store is kinda pricey due to shipping and I just received 4 other discs along with my MD3 lol.

Ryan, thanks for the input. The Envy IMO probably doesn't fly very differently from an S-P2. I just can't take it out of my bag because it was the first driving putter I used, and driving and approach I am pretty much point and shoot with it at this point :p

Definitely!! Would hopefully season into a nice turnover/roller disc quickly, but then hold at that spot for a while before becoming uselessly flippy.
