I'm a pretty big fan of the 157 G*PD I've been fooling around with lately. :thmbup:

rallyguy 06-04-2014 11:46 AM

Was that one of the EO ones? I'd love to find one around that weight

Ya, it's a sparkle silver one with the King stamp.

I've noticed that Dynamic Discs doesn't have a very wide selection of Discmania discs in their stores or online...I was just curious if they are going to stop carrying your products or what? It seems that they haven't restocked Discmania discs in quite some time and the only ones still around are the less-popular molds. Don't get me wrong, I love the new online store but sometimes its nice to feel them up in person. And thanks for answering all our questions rarintal!

Cyoda44 06-05-2014 03:05 PM

My 150-157 FD's are great! I need to score a few more and a PD!

I also have an old R-Pro MD2 in 171g which flies really nice, but because of the light weight and the fact that it's quite beaten, it sometimes has too much of turn. So now I need a bit more stable flying MD2, but don't really know if I'm actually getting a flat one if I order online (can't find any flat ones on local stores). I also have C-MD3 but it has too much fade. So I would really love if Discmania could provide us those perfect flat and straight flying MD2's, just like the original flat C-MD2's were and those R-Pro MD2's. Because those are getting really hard to find.

Or is there any difference in flatness between colors in 170-175 weights? Also flat S-MD2 would be gold.

Another question is about FD's. I have S-FD which is perfect for turnovers and also 175g 3rd run C-FD, which tends to have a bit too much fade than I'd want it to have. Should I try lighter one, maybe around 167-171g or try a G-FD for more dead straight lines?


P.S. I would also love to see more of those gummy TD's, one of my favourite discs and those are also getting hard to find.

Yes, the D-LINE P2's were actually really overstable, I could almost say it was more than the 175g big brother. And of course the S-LINE PD's flew crazy good. If you go over to thespintv.com there's point in the newest Japan Open video where Jussi offers Simon 10k to hit a long ace. Simon threw a S-LINE PD and it looked like it went a long ways!

The G-LINE PD is really good disc. How does it fly compared to other PD's?

I don't know enough about that store to give you a answer. With the overwhelming support there is for Discmania discs you might see them get some more.

we have some light weight "early run" S-LINE PD's on the Discmania Store right now.

If you are looking for the Flattest and Straightest flying of the MD2's we have these Orange and Yellow ones that are in between 170-173 grams at the Discmania Store. We have been testing these out recently and they seem to be the straightest of the ones we have thrown. These discs would be exactly what I believe you are looking for. We will keep the S-LINE MD2 information you have provided for the future.

About the FD. It sounds like you could use either a 172g First Run C-LINE FD, a 172-175 G-LINE FD, or like you stated a 171g C-LINE Jolly Launcher FD. If you are buying from the Discmania Store and buying the Jolly Launcher FD I would select a 171 Orange Jolly Launcher C-LINE.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for all the questions guys! what else is out there?

rallyguy 06-06-2014 03:09 PM

Are the first run P2's similar to current runs? And any restocks of G PD's and G FD's coming soon?

IronJack 06-06-2014 05:06 PM

Any plans for a mini shield restock?

Flick Maniac 06-07-2014 03:12 AM

I know you are the US rep specifically but could you elaborate a little on why there are such astounding amounts of extra yummy products in your store and hardly any of the same goodies at innovastore.net? I.e. what is the big picture of the EUR/US Discmania retail scheme?

I am just anxious to get all the mini shields, FRFs etc. :)

The funny thing is...I think it's a "grass is always greener..." thing.

I had someone want to buy the discmania shirt off my back, literally I was wearing it, because he couldn't get it in the US...we weren't the same size.

Flick Maniac 06-09-2014 07:01 AM

Yeah I can dig that. I would still prefer "the best of both worlds" so to speak... but the Atlantic does put a little damper on logistics though

Yes we do!

I will have to check out the s-line pd!

Bogey H8tr 06-09-2014 01:13 PM

Are there any plans in the future to run more pd's without the plus mold rim? I got a hold of an older s line pd that is not plus rimmed and it is a great flyer. I have not had the chance to throw a newer s-line pd that has a plus mold rim, do they fly any differently?

The only plus-rimmed PDs are the second-run C-PDs.

PFreese 06-10-2014 02:15 AM

What's the best plastic in your (and the discmania pros') opinion to putt with? I've been using d-line but getting a lot of spit outs even with simple low power putts. How well does the new g-line work for putting?

Flick Maniac 06-10-2014 06:09 AM

I am not a pro, but did change over to G-P2 just because of this. Over the weekend played 97 holes of disc golf and almost all approaches and putts were with this green FR G-P2. Great success. Will be getting a bunch more when it goes to regular production (it will, wont it?)

fasteddie 06-13-2014 04:09 PM

still waiting on some DM dri fits without avery's name on them to hit the store.

that is all.

Is there an easy way to tell? I have a C-PD and I really don't have another PD to compare it to. Nor have I ever owned another plus molded disc... so I wouldn't really even know where to start.

Hold a pencil or something as such against the rim. If it's overly slanted, it's a plus mold. Plus molds are almost waxy-like and flexy. Slight dome, and clearish. Good luck. I'll post a pic when I'm not hammered.

fasteddie 06-14-2014 12:02 AM

again... DM dri fit tees and polos.

multiple color combos/variations

even though lizzote is one of my favorite players..

NO PRO NAMES ON THEM!

I am a huge fan of your team/products and will continue to use/love/praise them..


just get me some of those DAMN SHIRTS!

DinosaurThunder 06-16-2014 09:33 AM

What d-line disc would you recommend cycling with my c-line MD2 and MD3's? Right now I carry a beat c-line MD2 for understable needs, one MD3 beat in straight, and one MD3 that is a meat hook. I am looking for a d-line disc that will beat in straight and be useful for controlled approach shots in the woods. I am having some issues for tight tunnel shots and playing through extremely wooded holes. Right now I throw a putter for this gap but am not getting the distance I like.

I was leaning towards a gremlin because of the smaller diameter and know it starts out stable so would think it could beat in well. What are your thoughts on the gremlin versus the MD1/MD2 for this shot need?

Thanks!

Javan

The First Run P2's fly the same, but feel completely different. The plastic feels soft and almost gummy. It's a very unique plastic.

At the moment we haven't planned it. What discs are you looking for? We can keep it in mind for the future if we run more.

We do not plan on running plus mold rims. I don't believe I have ever seen a plus mold S-LINE PD.

I know Simon and Jussi use the D-LINE P2, as do most of the team members... AJ uses the P-LINE P2. If you are looking for a grippier putter the P-LINE P1 is pretty ridiculously grippy.

The G-LINE P2 is a great disc. The production run will be coming later this year.

It should be pretty noticable. it's a pretty big slant on the rim going down from the flight plate.

true. The plastic is very close to the 4th Run C-LINE PD's. Much softer than the First Run C-LINE PD's

Javan

The GM would be one solution you are looking for. If you are looking for more overstable to beat in I would say the MD1 if you like wide diameter mids, or the GM if you like smaller diameter discs. The MD2 is fairly straight right off of the shelf and might beat in to understable. I hope that helps


what other questions do you guys have??

-Ryan

AaronMonier18 06-17-2014 09:31 PM

How do you decide which foil stamp you will use on certain discs? I must admit that I have bought many DM discs because the rainbow stamp looks so darn pretty on the C-Line design.

I just placed an order and tried to drive home the point that I prefer that stamp over color and even weight to a few grams. How good are the guys on delivering on requests like that through the store?

PFreese 06-20-2014 10:52 PM

Are there any plans to release another lizotte stamped disc besides the FD that's on the store right now?

I'm surprised he doesn't have more, atleast the pd2 since he throws them the most. Or a d p2

Freeze07 06-22-2014 04:34 PM

G line p1
 
Just wondering if we will be seeing a g line p1 anything soon

ranger 06-23-2014 08:45 PM

Is there a date for a production run or restock of g-line pds?

PFreese 06-25-2014 02:32 AM

I know this was asked but there are a lot of posts to search through, which c-line md2's are the most understable and do the p-line md2's break in nicely for that hyper flip/turnover mid shot?

there are no understable c-line md2's that ive ever heard of. from my experience the ones that start off with less low speed stability are the flatter ones, but even then they start out with a lot of high speed stability. i've had one of the early run opaque flat c-lines in my bag for like two years probably and it's still not understable, it's just super straight. the only time i can get it to turn is when i'm throwing it like 300+ and even then it's just a bit of movement. i can throw it 380 and it wont turn over.

for the G-LINE releases, you will just have to watch our social media outlets to see what and when discs are coming out :)

There is a target date. We will let you all know via our social media outlets as soon as they are available.

The most understable would be the D-LINE MD2's. The P-LINE MD2's do break in niceley. The lighter weight 170-172 C-LINE MD2's hyzer flip when worn in. and they seem to be the flattest of the "flat Jolly Launcher MD2's". last but not least there's the 2nd Run domey C-LINE MD2 which is straight to understable

The only correction to this I would make would be the D-LINE variation or the domey 2nd run C-LINES are more understable than other c-lines.

Any plan more more apparel? Hoodie would be nice, as would DM Buffs, great for cold windy days.

The first runs are Patent tooled and very soft. It could almost be considered gummy D-LINE plastic.

SlappyMcGruff 07-04-2014 07:23 AM

Any plans for S line MD3 and big and tall clothes?

Taylor 07-07-2014 04:32 PM

I'll piggyback onto SlappyMcGruff's question and ask if there are any S-line FD2's in the works?

Strauss 07-07-2014 09:58 PM

I can't wait for more G-line PD's! Any hints on a time frame??

mutteriwiritys 07-09-2014 06:43 AM

Could we see a new In the Bag video with Simon Lizotte? :)

Spinthrift 07-09-2014 01:20 PM

Will Discmania ever make a true 150 PD again, especially S-PDs? Not a 156 or 159, but 150. The First Run 150s and Shield Stamp 150s are two of the best 150 runs made, anywhere, anytime.

And if y'all could see fit to make a 150 C-PD :thmbup: :hfive: :clap:
it could be the best 150 driver ever.
