I carry 2 Glow C-MD3's, 1 domey and 1 flat, 1 Proto P-MD3, 1 P-MD2 and I keep the C-MD in the side pocket for secondary shots during rounds. It still a bit too straight to replace my understable MD2's, but not enough stability to be thrown over my P-MD3. It kind of fits right in between them right now.

I'd love to see some flat firm JL C-MD's(same plastic as the recent run of FD's, but table top flat). These could be a fantastic disc IMO.

Stiff P-MD2's? Nice. I've never thrown one but they sound awesome.

I really like the way discmania approaches stable mids and putters by just raising the plh without resorting to beads or concave bottom wings, but both molds seem to only be available in c-line and I'm trying to transition my entire bag other than my putting putters to flexible plastics.

I'd be excited to throw G-Line MD3's as well. That sounds fun.

Slightly less HSS than JL C-lines IMO. Healthy fade still, but they'll throw a little easier.

I've never seen one, but Ryan will know for sure.

JTacoma03, stiff P-Line MD2's are fantastic(Actual pro plastic, not the KCP). I find that they break in a little quicker to that understable slot and then just hang out there for a really long time. I've only found them in white/off-white color. If you find anymore in the warehouse and above 175, holler at me.

I'll keep that in mind. :)

I'm LOVING mine, and want more in different colors/stamps.

We're working on getting them ready. We have a few other Crush discs first ;)

Yeah, the color glow C-LINE PD2s have been very popular.

PPS follow up to my review a few pages back of the MD. I got to throw the first (non-proto) runs that are slightly less domey and slightly softer and I think they are WINNERS. Orange are my favorite so far followed by Pink. They're a little easier to get to turn than the stiff protos, but they still are really hard to get to turn-and-burn. They really love getting back to flat. I think my new midrange setup is going to be Glow MD3/P-MD3/C-MD. If you're still tentative or figuring out our mid lineup I'd encourage you to try that trio and post your feedback!

I agree with all of this. Especially posting your feedback. We can use that to help make the best products for you guys!

There is a chance of the G-LINE MD3. Thanks for the kind words!

We don't make white G-LINE discs. We tried it but it wasn't good. Maybe in the future we can figure it out.

vogurt 06-02-2015 03:21 PM

How are the Color Glow PD2's compared to S lines? I have a max weight S line PD2 that I can get to just aout ~430 feet on a nice open field rip it'll carry straight forever and than fade out, but often times it'll be less distance and hyzer out sooner!

Also, P line DD's are awesome... No other Pro discs I've thrown has such crazy HSS it's amazing! DD's PRo always has color swirls too so I'm excited it's becoming my favorite controlled distance driver!

I'm trying to see if DD's and PD2's can be my destroyer type slot.

I find Color Glow to be similar to S-Line, in that for me it flies with less HSS than the C-Line.

PD2's aren't my main driver though so others may have more experience.

jskew113 06-04-2015 09:22 PM

I recently picked up an opaque orange CMD2. Kinda domey. Any ideas on what run this is and how it compares to other MD2s?

Sounds like the 2nd run, as I have a couple of 'em. Glidey, and less stable than most other runs I've thrown. Nice plastic, though. Feels like the same goodness my champ panthers are made of...

fasteddie 06-05-2015 08:14 AM

boy... there are a LOT of arm chair disc theory crafters at work eh?

fasteddie 06-05-2015 08:22 AM

rallyguy 06-07-2015 04:33 PM

MD's in the store soon?

vogurt 06-08-2015 11:06 AM

Any plans to run P-fd2?

What's up with your Pro line DD's compared to all the other P lines? I had a pd2 even that was flippy on me but the past couple weeks and even in my two tournies this week I was absolutely crushing my 169g P line DD... Just no turn, glides for days straight, and then falls down. I had to have hit 450 feet on 2 holes this weekend. Not to mention I crushed 3 trees at full power and there literally wasn't even a scratch, which just isn't what pro does... haha. This stuff is like star. I need to buy all of the P-line DD's. Also another plus? They have awesome swirls in the plastic too.. Might have just found my workhorse controlled distance driver. my cPD is a bit straighter, but when I need that straight bomb to fade, P line DD every single time, unless heavy wind.

I remember aiming directly between two trees down the middle 400' down the fairway and going right between those two trees and than far past that both holes in my doubles round yesterday.. Just a laser!

Keep doing to the Pro plastic whatever you are doing with them in the DD mold :P

vogurt 06-08-2015 12:08 PM

Or an S-line FD2 maybe. Just curious, as if there is any pro line disc that actually has full HSS like the DD does, I'm throwing it... There's so much grip and glide in that plastic.

P-Line PD2's are my flavor of the week, and they fit that bill. Plus it makes me feel like a badass to say "PD2" when people ask what the disc was. :cool: ;)

The one I had flipped on me at any hint of a power throw :( I made sure I wasn't rolling my wrist or anything. Maybe I got an odd one..

vogurt 06-08-2015 07:14 PM

I can throw my S-line Pd2 plenty far as well, Maybe i'll have to check out another P line sometime. My dog might have become friends with my first one.

Flick Maniac 06-09-2015 03:52 AM

Yeah i dont have the arm for normal PD2s either, but beat me up a P-PD2 and Im good to enter warp speed. This one really eaten up even flips for me.

sandelius 06-10-2015 03:08 PM

What is the recommended mid-range from Discmania for straight / straight and fade to the right shots? I'm RHBH.

Our newest Midrange, the "MD", which officially made it's debut yesterday fits that flight pattern exactly. It went immediately into my bag. Check it out:

Sir-Hucks-A-Lot 06-10-2015 07:49 PM

Without starting a bunch of "VS." threads, can throwers or reps please comment on the MD in comparison with discs like the Mako/Mako3? I LOVED the feel of the Mako3 in the hand, but found it a bit touchy for my swing consistency. A touch more torque resistance with similar flight characteristics would be right up my alley.

This is what you're looking for then. It has a very similar feel in hand but definitely can handle more power. The pink ones I've found to be the most OS so far. Give one a try and post your feedback! I'd love to hear some other thoughts.

Flick Maniac 06-11-2015 05:34 AM

I just realized DM only has one disc in EchoStar (DD2), any plans to run more molds in it?

^Truth^

The pinks can handle a fair bit of power and won't turn and burn(Similar to the orange proto's). They will hold straight and then have a very gentle hyzer finish to them.

Yeah, the Protos are noticeably more OS.

I'm digging the Oranges and Pinks because I can throw them into a smooth turnover but they have enough stability to finish flat, no worries about landing on edge and cut-rolling.


Yellow/Dayglow seems to turn a little more in this run, so you can tune the color to exactly how much power you need, which is always nice in a finesse disc.

Hope this helps everyone!

Sir-Hucks-A-Lot 06-11-2015 08:53 PM

Do you think you'll keep the MD in the bag despite seasoning MD3s? I have a load of beautiful P-lines that are getting PERFECT, and as a former Roc thrower, I wonder if I won't simply end up with a bag full of Ps and a single C or Glow for wind/downhill/hyzers.

That's a good question, and I'm looking forward to the experiment, I feel like you have to throw them differently so theoretically there's space for both. We'll have to see in reality, but I plan to keep them both in for the remainder of the season and see how it plays out.

LADamon 06-13-2015 05:54 PM

I tried buying some disc this morning from the Discmania store and I got an "Approved-100" error. Also is there a reason why there isn't https: on the store website?

FightingTheTide 06-13-2015 09:27 PM

How do the 5th run C Line FDs compare to the red hybrid S Lines?

They are more HSS. Both really solid discs though. The reds are more stable than regular S lines though.

5th runs are essentially what fD's should be or are what DM wants them to be. Some turn at the right power, and some fade! Lands right in the middle. You can throw it on any line powered down, and even rip on it and get past 400. It's a beauty. I think I've been reaching for it more than my 2nd run lately. :o

GirdleRoc 06-17-2015 02:40 PM

So I felt the X-Line plastic for the first time this week and it is awesome. The P2 is also awesome!

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?

Looks like only the discmania store right now, but I would highly recommend supporting the discmania store by purchasing from them. Their customer service is great, and they do an awesome job of listing their discs so you can get exactly the run, stamp, color and weight you want.

GirdleRoc 06-17-2015 07:24 PM

The Discmania store is awesome but the shipping. I just want one or two for now.

Flick Maniac 06-18-2015 10:02 AM

x-line should def. go into regular production. P1x and P2 are awesome in it. X-MD? could be interesting too. Drivers it probably grinds up too fast.

gerth_vader 06-18-2015 11:14 AM

my gf's archangel has held up amazing in xt, I would love to see whippet, fd and panther in it

goeyj 06-18-2015 11:26 AM

I'm experimenting with switching over to the P1x for all putting duties. KC Aviars have held that spot for years, but these just feel so great in the hand! 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!

bogeyfreetilinfinity 06-18-2015 01:20 PM

I heard there were plans for a pd3.

I just ordered 2 discs from the store and paid a whole $6.65 for Priority 3-day shipping, and my discs traveled from CA to MS in just two days. Made the order around 8:00 am Thursday morning central time and had the discs in my hand by 11:30 am central Saturday morning.

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!

DinosaurThunder 06-23-2015 12:34 PM

I understand why initial releases of discs are produced in c-line (marketability, sales, etc.). 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?

drgriff 06-23-2015 12:43 PM

Are the KC P2s being made anymore? i putt with the p-line but the South Carolina Heat still makes them a little floppy. For me the stiffer the better.
