Idk if it needs to be stiff p line like those md4s but I wouldn't mind a few driver pro p3xs

Complete Active Line - says April/May. Thought it said March??
April: Instinct!!!!!!!!! (OS version of FD2(teebird?))
May: Method!!! (OS MD3, beaded (between md3/4))
June: Link!!!! (Please 4/2/0/4 maybe??)
July: Enigma (what is the Gap? Replace DD? Or like a shryke DD2 replacement?)
SLine FD2 (is it May/June yet!?!?!?!)
DD3 April. Likely Swirly SLine for Tour Fundraiser to rake in the dollars for Eagle. Is it going to be the same stamp?? I hope not so the first run has a unique stamp.
Then the SLine release DD3 once the swirly sells out.

So basically by July I'll have everything I need except Lux Instinct and Lux Link if it's an OS beast of a flat fast un-beaded putter

2019 is going to be a whopper of a year. We expect everything that has been made and will be made to be a huge success for players moving forward. DD3, FD2, Instinct (almost time), Method is fantastic, Link is in the process, Enigma should pair nicely with a DD3 though some players may choose one or the other.

DD3 next run will have the same stamp but the main indicator between the two is the First Run was all embossed with prototype lettering. That should do the trick.

On top of all that, we still have numerous Signature runs planned and specialty discs always on the horizon. I'd say even though #yearofevolution is in effect, #yearoftheshield seems to be a much longer year than we thought. Perhaps an eternity :)

I figure this is outside of typical customer communication, but can you tell us what mold pieces make up the 2019 FD2? In the dedicated thread on here, one user pointed out that it has the same tooling on the flight plate as the teebird3. The bottom wing looks like a TL to me - I'm wondering if maybe it's a TB3 top with a spacer and a TL bottom.

Jenga54 04-03-2019 04:54 PM

The bottom and the wing are different things, there's 3 parts to a mold

Any chance we can get an update on this?
Also, I don't know how I'll replace my DD.
And no, the DD3 isn't the answer. Maybe some special run high $$ PD2 but I can't grip PD2. I need 10-11 speed, headwind dependable that doesn't fade and skip like a PD. And my CD and DD are gone :(

Plenty of time to stock up on a few replacements. I found quite a few places have s and c line dd's still available. I stocked up when the swirly version came out. I found some older run CD's with the craze stamp at our local shop so those are still available too. It sucks two of your molds are leaving and you can either try to stock up now until you find a replacement or just hope you don't lose any of what you do have.

Active line
 
SIAP, but is the Active line all new molds, or are they Yikun molds in new plastic?

B The V 04-05-2019 07:10 PM

All new molds.

Me too, I bag 2 of them as my main distance driver. But I'm not throwing them into a headwind with water all along the right side...

Have you tried the CGPD?

If I run out of DDs I might have to go to PDs. I don't bag PDs, they are too dumpy for me, I throw CDs for most all control driver shots. They are dead straight right to the ground, it's like a 10 speed mid.
But hey, gotta cut old stuff and sell new stuff so the people buy it.

My suggestion to DiscMania is to announce a "Final Run" so that we can buy em up.

Yes, yes I know many of them are still available... But if anyone has new S-CD (pink or blue) hit me up.

Grippenripp 04-06-2019 08:13 PM

Just curious. Does Discmania put chincy stamps on the sig discs on purpose. My Royal Rages are already rubbing off, NS2s also. Not meaning to sound snarky or be an A hole, I am genuinely curious why this is. The foil on my stock S line FD is not nearly as worn and it has almost a year ITB.

I really like the idea of the "final run".

You'd be better off going back to the beefy wraiths. They are pretty much a one to one replacement for the DD. (well the DD was a replacement for them).

The CD2 is similar to a CD but definitely has more turn and more fade. You'll have to hyzer flip them more. I don't think there is a one to one replacement for the CD.

The CD, CD2, CD3, PD, and DD are different enough that you could bag all of them and not have any exact overlap. Might be close enough to make something work but if you throw them all hard and flat they all fly quite a bit differently.

Kinda sad to see DM discontinuing so many discs. The lineup is already fairly small and the really cool thing was how so many discs were just different enough that everyone could find a disc that did the perfect thing for them.

I guess we'll have to see how these new molds produced by Lat64 turn out.

Still always ready to start things I see ;)

Foil comes off easier than matte stamps, DX stamps softer than star, thin flight plates need more pressure and I'd bet they don't always hit real deep

Not intentionally LOL. But **** man, I pay extra for the sig runs right? I bought 4 this particular time because they're just so **** beautiful. And now it's fading....

Yeah I dont jive with the CD2, I mean the CD was really unique and is an excellent choice for a new player for a distance driver. 300' on a rope with no fade is just tough to duplicate.

With the DD and DD2 gone, with the DD3 just a longer CD3... I expect something DD-DD1-DD2 to show up but it'll probably be a year or two.

PDX could have been fun in SLine but the PDX is axed too. Just gotta fill a 11/5/0/2-3 spot eventually right??

I mean the extra 5 bucks on for the touring pro, and we get to hope that one day it'll be worth 30 instead of 25.

My claws 5503 stamp PD2s arrived today, I am so excited for this special deal. They feel sweet. All my C-PD2 are a few runs old. What should I be expecting for an off the sheld current run?

Can you link to any more information about this process? Until this very moment I thought it was upper wing, lower wing, and that's it.

Interesting stuff. The bit about the myth of a spacer - I could have sworn I remember Dave stating the BB driver aviar had spacer... then I went back and watched the youtube vid, sure enough, no mention of a spacer. I'm not convinced they don't have some kind of spacer system.

fishballer06 04-09-2019 12:39 PM

Looks like Eagle picked up another W. Does this mean we will be seeing some sort of commemorative stamp/disc here soon?

thatdirtykid 04-09-2019 12:51 PM

I've always questioned the spacer because wouldn't that give us a second parting line?

Some molds, like the OLS, you can see what appears to be a double parting line

thatdirtykid 04-09-2019 01:01 PM

That would basically prove a spacer with the added seam in the mold

While I am clicking with the new FD2. Iíll have to disagree about the TDx. Itís a boring glideless blunt nosed something. But it wasnít exciting to throw and underperformed on the lines it was meant to fly. The TD, roadrunner and sidewinder all handle the slot better. DM seemed to agree since they are going to rework the mold before releasing anymore.

It isn't quite what I expected and may not even hold the slot down, I bought the new TDx over a RR @ Hazy last week BC it was pretty (I know) but I am having fun throwing it. IMO it feels great in the hand.

The CD3 would make an excellent replacement if you haven't tried those already. Chances are they'll go just as far. That being said, we'll definitely try our best to make another batch of Swirl DD down the road. Unfortunately it may not be this year though.

A valid question. Unfortunately we can't disclose that information, I'm afraid. Sorry about that!

No, never. But good information to know. We'd be interested to hear about the foils you see rubbing off earlier than others. Could one of them be a blue foil by chance? There are a lot of different variables in foils. Some are thicker, thinner, more durable, easier to stamp, harder to stamp, etc. Just like people, most foils are truly unique from one another aside from a few similarities in groups of composition.

This is true. All discs are different like the foils are as well. We strive to have the least amount of tangibility of stamp on the discs so in theory some of them could be stamped hotter but that sometimes means a more tangible stamp in hand which some people don't like very much. D-Line discs are pretty hard to avoid stamping without being able to feel the stamp when running your hands over it.

The new TDx flies much more like they should if you haven't tried one of those out yet. We'd agree that the first batch was much too stable. The latest embossed runs are much flatter and definitely fly how they should.

The spexial edition Luster FDs that infinote had, and my Night Strike2 along with my Royal rages. My MD3s have the foil pressed into them by the stamp. All mig special or Sig discs are flat and can wipe off with pressure by hand. Still love the molds

The CD3 is great at what it is. It's no DD replacement though. I'm talking headwind with water all along the right side, 300' drive over the water the whole way and trust it doesn't flip over. That's what I'm hoping will exist right in between the PD and PD2

I'd 100% rather have a foil rub off a little vs smashing the flight plates so hard that there's an indent where the stamp is.

I like it when it's imoressed a bit. The foils all will wear but Inlike the "worn, ghost stamp" look. Also on none of my DB2s or triumoh FD3s have I had thus issue. Really just on CG plastic.
