I would say pick up a C-PD2 and learn it for FH, you won't have to worry about finding special Destroyers anymore. PD2's will handle your FH no problem ;)

Just curious, what's the difference between the first run cd and the newer runs? What does the slanted top do that the Anhyzer top doesn't?

vogurt 07-17-2015 10:49 AM

Also curious as i just traded away a cd and am looking at either a new cd or cd2.

Here's a question... why is it that everyone throws the star destroyer and not the champ destroyer, but the c-pd2 is much more popular than the s-pd2? I recently picked up an s-pd2 at a tournament and love it for flicks... what am I missing out on by not throwing the c-pd2?

I think typically PD2 throwers are looking for the most OS version, but that's pure speculation. Funny enough, the pop top S-PD2's are reeeeally OS.

Thanks Jamie for bringing the info here! I'm still working on getting on here more! I apologize for being so slow at responding.

Is the discmania store the only place to pick up X-Line P2's right now? Besides the black market of course.
Any hope for greater availability in the near future?

The Discmania Store or Discmania Premium Retailers (retailers that get discs directly from us) are the only place you can get them from right now.

Thanks for the kind words. We're working on getting the stamp color added to all the stock discs. It's quite time consuming, but we're working on it.

We're working on getting better pricing, we check back to our shipping partners about once a month at this stage to always try to get you guys the best price possible.

That's an interesting concept. We'll keep them in mind for future productions for sure. If we made the MD in another plastic, which would you guys prefer first? D-LINE, P-LINE (like the P-MD3), S-LINE or G-LINE?

We are testing the P-LINE FD right now. If it's successful we can possible move to X-LINE.

Rocking 2x D-P1x for putting duties, a P-P1x for approaches/drives, and the trusty Gummy Champ Rhyno for Rhyno stuff. Hopefully, one of the D-Lines will season up to a touch approach/anny putter for throwing, as well. They are surprisingly stable brand new!

We have found this to be true too. A lot of us have been using the P1x exclusively too. We would agree that they are very torque resistant, not quite overstable... but it doesn't drift all over the place.

Where did you hear this from? a PD3 would be a beast!

I have no problem spending the money on shipping when it is that quick.

My order was delivered in a nice Discmania printed box and even included some watermelon Jolly Rancher candies too. Thanks Guys!

You're welcome. We do work pretty hard on getting good shipping prices!

How long does it typically take for a disc to make it into s-line (I dont recall the lenght it took for the PD)? More wondering about the process/decision making when it comes to a disc like the FD2 or new FD3. Will some discs never see other plastic types because the c-line mimics the flight numbers so well?

The process isn't as set in stone as you are thinking. For example right now with the FD3 we are really giving the C-LINE thorough testing and seeing how we can compliment it best with another plastic selection.

P-LINE P2s are made of KC pro like material.

Thanks for the suggestion, we'll most certainly consider this for future production.

P1 D, Rpro and C. S?

MD1 SG, D?
MD2 Rpro, P, S and C?
PD first S? Then P and later C? Glow. G.
CD first D, then P and S about same time? Now there are a few C-CDs too but not regular.
TD first D, then S, then C?
PD2 went C, P and S, in that order, right? Glow too.
DD2 was in Echostar first, P C and S in some order. Now G.
FD S, D and C. G.
TD2 went S, C. Kind of a sidenote mold.
MD3 C, glow and much later now P
P3, D then C. Glow.
FD2 only C. Glow.
CD2 C, then G
P1X D and X almost simultaneously.

I am just typing this off the top of my head. Pls fix if you know how. Def seems like a historical pattern now where C-line is the norm. P-line has now only resurfaced in MD3. Before that the latest were P2 PD2 and DD2 so it has been a while. I think a lot of people would appreciate the missing links in P-line or barring that, S.

We are working on a few gaps in there. We'll get them out when they're perfected :)

We'll consider this for future productions. They would be pretty close but not identical to the McPro if we decided to make them.

The European Masters Fundraiser, First Run and Production run had a slight mix of flatter and domey. The domey version (most of the European Masters) are much more overstable than the flatter ones. The production C-LINE in the future will have a higher dome because it makes it more overstable and closer to the flight numbers. The flatter first runs and glows are slightly straighter and glide a little further before fading out.

I've had experience with the following FD2 runs (in the order of overstability):

OG release EOM FD2 - This disc definitely started out as my most OS FD2. Flew like a mini Firebird when I first started playing with it. It's been in the bag for about a year now and it's straightened out considerably, gained more glide, and has lost a little bit of the hard, biting fade, but has still retained it's HSS. JL red. This is currently the only FD2 I carry.

X-out production run FD2 - This disc is about the same as the EOM. Very OS out of the box with a tiny bit more glide and workability. It's also JL red, which makes me think that the red ones tend to be more OS.

Production run FD2 - This disc is my least favorite of the 4 different FD2 molds I have. It actually has a tick of high speed turn and a big heavy fade. It's a fun line shaper, but the turn makes dialing it in a bit of a challenge since it will tend to flex out a little more than I like for this disc. JL orange.

"First Run" stamp FD2 - This disc is my less stable FD2. It has good HSS (no turn), but has less fade and is a little longer than any of the other fresh FD2's that I've thrown. JL pink.

I've not thrown the Glow FD2, but have read that it's the least stable of all of the lineup. YMMV of course. ;)

Interesting. The European Open and the Stock run is the same run. We had picked them because they were most overstable with the dome. If we lined them up here they would go:

Domey FD2 (European Masters, First Run, Stock Stamp) > Glow FD2 > Flatter First run

Nice set up!

I'm sure we'll get a hold of you if we need a tester :)

The P-line MD3 and the G-line MD3 are going to have a fight for the "middle" stability slot in my bag after I get back from Finland.

This is interesting because we had a few people throw the G-MD3 and thought it was much more stable than the other versions. I found personally I could get a better grip on these and I could lay into it more and get it to fly super straight for a long time. That being said, I think I get those results because I was really laying into it, while others were throwing it the same speed.

We're working on more colors for the second run of P-LINE MD3s.

Yes, the Destroyer and the PD2 are both 12 speed drivers but the PD2 is much more overstable.

We agree with this. The new Flatter Jolly Launchers are pretty nice for forehands!

The first run CDs did not have our top on it yet. It looks the same as the Prototype PDs top. It lets the disc fly a bit further and is less torque resistant.

We love both of those discs here, The CD fades a little bit harder than the CD2. And the CD2 seems to get further down the fairway with less effort. It'll surprise you with the distance it'll get you kind of like the FD.

Both the S-LINE PD2 and C-LINE PD2 are both seriously overstable. We would argue there are some versions of the S-LINE that are even more overstable than the C-LINE. These pop tops are very overstable but they wear in faster than the C-LINE counterpart. Maybe it's because people want the PD2 to be as overstable as possible for as long as possible?

The S-PD2 is a beast, anyone could change these two... except Simon he needs the most Overstable ones we can find him.

That's what I was thinking too. Those bright Pink/Green ones we got for you Jamie are the specific version I would argue is the most overstable PD2s ever.

jskew113 07-20-2015 05:54 PM

First off I just want to say Discmania has taken over my bag. PLine and Cline MD3s for mids, various FDs for straight shots and line shaping, and PDs for FH, distance, and wind. I love what you have done with the factory store with spelling out the specific runs and limited releases. It used to be hard to find "good" PDs but that is a thing of the past, and has made me try more molds. Firebirds and Comets are the only non-Discmania mold I have in the bag, though I am considering PD2 to replace the Forechicken as a sub 400' thrower.

Please make PLine MD3s a regular thing. The mold just works for me and they beat in exactly how I want: delayed fade, then stupid straight. I would kill for PLine MD3s in dayglo.
