Also, mine skips like a motha which I actually use for holes obstructed by trees or objects and I have skipped around said objects for birdies. No other disc I own skips like my pop top P-line DD2. It is not a max DD for me though.

I agree, normal S-LINE DD2s are more overstable... But pop top Echo S-LINE DD2s are closer to the P-LINE flight but they stay at that point and don't get flippy as fast

Why is the PD so damn fantastic?

Thanks for the compliment :) It just has a good straight flight with a consistant fade.

We will keep this in mind for future production.

We are working on it, we don't want to release anything sub par, so we are taking the time to make sure it's the right product.

And then on the flip side, 2nd run C-Line FD's are almost all I've ever been able to find in most shops (and I still see restocks of 2nd runs), but the Innova/Discmania sites seem to have them in such scarce quantities - any particular reason?

Not sure about that one. We have the 3rd and 4th runs (which are identical) which is the newest run. The 2nd runs are kind of hard to come by, we would love to have them for sale on the store to have the full line up.

2nd run is flat, hard feeling plastic with bubbles in the rim.

Yeah, the 3rd run has a dome found in between the 1st and 2nd run, they are arguably the straightest off all FDs

It would be really cool to see a run of p-line and d-line P2s with a large version of the main shield stamp as an overlay on the color of the disc.

Example- The classic red and yellow Discmania shield logo: You could have a yellow P2 with the red stamp overlay outlining the shield, letters and basket centered and large on the disc.

This could lead to a number of sweet color combinations!

Just an idea :)

Also-

If anyone was second guessing Ryan's suggestion of the echo DD2 he was not kidding! The current run being sold from the DM store is the farthest flying disc I have ever thrown.

thanks for the ideas. we are open to hearing what you guys would want to see as stamps on discs. Thanks for the DD2 bump :hfive:

G-line PD2s would be sweet.

Oh and by beaded putter, i meant "deep dish" style not something like a Judge ;). Thanks rarintal!

FD2 in s-line plastic would be amazing!

Firebird "like" disc run in c and s-line.

Out of the box true understable fairway driver.

Nalgene or water bottle would be sweet too!

Crazy OS putter, if the glow P3 is not that. Speaking of which, where might one aquire such? Having that reliable rangeability in high winds is useful enough to merit a slot in the bag.

I like the way you think. I'd like a understable mid out of the box in addition to these.

My guess... if the shops have a bunch of 2nd run C-FD's sitting on the shelves, then they aren't going to order more from the factory. If the shops aren't ordering more, then the 3rd run C-FD's are sitting at the factory and readily available in the factory store.

Off topic story... I was selling a bunch of random discs to a local PIA a couple of months ago... the owner offered me $2 for a 9/10 C-Line Plus PD. I questioned why only $2 and he said Discmania wasn't selling very well. One minute later a guy walked in and asked if they had any PD's (he said he was intrigued after he heard Avery Jenkins raving about them). I sold it to him for $10.

OB Four 09-12-2014 02:06 PM

Kudos, diggin the new standard S-Line stamps. Was never a huge fan of the over the top horror themed stamps.

Brodysseus 09-12-2014 11:08 PM

My apologies if this has already been asked but I did some searching and didn't find the answer. Do you have any plans to release the TD2 in any other plastic lines besides S?

Brodysseus 09-12-2014 11:16 PM

Missed the edit window. I meant any plans for normal production runs of different plastics, I believe there were deep in the game c-line td2s available through your store.

Thanks for the input, unfortunately I have not thrown a Judge. Can I please get you to explain further. I am guessing you're talking a P1/P2 depth putter?

The glow P3 is very overstable. At the moment, the only place that the glow P3 is available is for a tournament up in San Francisco called the Safari Open. They might have some more available.

I'm not sure why they are not available in stores. There has been a 4th run that has been created that is identical to the 3rd run.

good work on flipping that PD.

That's an interesting thought, we don't tend to think of our discs as an improved version of another disc. But, it's an interesting theory.

The TD2 is available in the C-LINE plastic with the Deep In The Game stamp at the Discmania store, and it's an excellent rolling and long hyzer flip shots.

Correct. there are also many other various limited edition discs, go check em out: http://store.discmania.net/index.php...run-discs.html

At the moment there are no plans but we will surely let you guys know when we do produce something new!

mtak127 09-15-2014 06:36 PM

Yes, P2 depth is what I am referring to. Maybe even a hair deeper.

B-Man 09-15-2014 11:14 PM

Does the MD3 have a bead?

New013 09-16-2014 12:34 AM

seriously.. what's up with the whole md1 is going to be the understable compliment thing?

Kodachrome 09-16-2014 02:30 AM

so happy there won't be any more crazy art on the disc. It looks clean and professional. Also easy to wipe for dye jobs!

DinosaurThunder 09-16-2014 06:47 AM

Has any disc from the lineup ever been released in the "rootbeer" color?

fasteddie 09-16-2014 08:25 AM

man.... am I the only one that loves the themed stamps? they're only on two plastics in the line up..

it does seem like the DM line up is lacking the the slower understable department. I don't really care seeing as I don't throw any understable molds for the most part, but for the sake of rounding out the line up and contending with the other already established companies it makes sense.

any whooozle.... SHIRTS!@! and tell the deep in the game to come to northern michigan!!

The s-line hysteria is by far my favorite stamp of all time! Would really like a large print of it to hang on my wall. Close second is the gnarly psycho writing on the p2s and the freak artwork!

B-Man 09-16-2014 02:30 PM

I'm partial to the S-Line Jackal stamp myself.

listen2bob 09-16-2014 02:47 PM

C line MD 2 questions
 
Wondering if you experts could shed some light on a question I have.
I have been throwing a 2010 usdgc C line MD 2 for several years. How does that run compare to the stock stamp c line runs that are available now?

strive 09-16-2014 04:24 PM

I hated the freak stamp... and pretty much everything else zombie themed

Got yourself a great and somewhat rare disc. The mold was actually changed slightly shortly after that run. If I'm not mistaken, you can still find some older r-pro and pro MD2s with the old nose. I have a couple. You'd have to ask ZJ for more info. Booter might know as well.

That is a sad, sad story. How are the newer ones in c line with the nose job? More stable or less or completely different

New013 09-16-2014 11:06 PM

I've never actually thrown my USDGC one so I have no clue, I do remember somebody (ZJ I believe) saying he liked the original mold better. IMO as long as you get a flat one you have a good disc.

Flick Maniac 09-17-2014 06:45 AM

I was playing with the idea of getting the zombie from the freak stamp as a tattoo... which only the DM aficianados would "get", others would just think "zombie tattoo". However, since then Ive decided to stay tattooless. I think that is more rare these days than having one.

But the hysteria stamp?? What is going on in there, is is a bush, is it a pile of leaves, no, it is a panther?? I like most of them though. Rush is on the fence a bit, and of the latest ones, Jackal I dont dig, just looks goofy to me, but the Chaos is cool, and has that hair/swirl background thing common with the freak and the frenzy.

Six are listed for sale right now in the Discmania Collectors and Trowers group on FB. Good price too!

listen2bob 09-17-2014 11:33 AM

Cool, thanks for the heads up

MonkeyShine 09-18-2014 06:17 AM

Hope this is the right place to ask this...

How come Discmania's poster boy, Simon Lizotte, doesn't throw the PD? Not only is it the best thing DM has, surely Simon has the arm speed for it. I understand he is a minimalist, he has like 15 discs in his tour bag whereas most pros have closer to 25, but there's plenty of room between the speed 7 Jackal and the speed 12 meat hook known as Chaos.

This isn't a criticism, Simon obviously knows what he's doing. Just curious.

PFreese 09-18-2014 01:40 PM

He's got a firebird for that "control driver" slot, Simon's throwing style seems to be if you can get around with a hyzer bomb then a hyzer bomb is what he'll throw and his overstable discs are good for that. Plus it seems like all his straight shots are mids or putters and anhyzers are with his über beat PD2

You're right that he likes high lines, but he doesn't have "uber beat" discs. He takes new PD2's and puts them on anny just with power. He's a freak in that sense. He throws crazy overstable discs as if they were control drivers. That's what impresses me about him, his hit is crazy powerful.

I don't know why he doesn't throw PD's, but he favors FD2's and Firebirds instead.

Thanks for the correction. I was just thinking of his in the bag when he talked about his flat PD2 so I assumed it was one he'd just had for a long time. He's definitely a unique player and that's why he's so fun to watch

Heh, it's actually funny he never has beat discs because he keeps losing them. He's so aggressive all the time and there's no shot he's afraid of, and no disc he's afraid to lose.

It definitely makes for come comedic moments on the course!

Miquz 09-21-2014 04:55 AM

When can we expect more molds coming in G-line ? Like DD , PD2 etc. ?

andrewv 09-21-2014 07:34 PM

Really love the G-line PD. Would LOVE to see some in 150 class. (Innova is making a bunch of 150 class gstars, including Bosses, so I know it's an option.)

tkaiser 09-22-2014 06:31 PM

I just bought a C line FD and was wondering if it was a 2nd or 3rd run. It is flat and has a stiff feel to it with lots of pearl. Super excited to throw it!

Definitely a 2nd run

tkaiser 09-22-2014 06:45 PM

Should I expect more stability? Heard 2nd runs were more like teebirds?
