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?

I'm a bit curious of this myself. I'd love to try an S-FD2!

This is interesting. It was not always like so. Order of availability by plastic type, roughly:

P1 D, Rpro and C. S?
P2 D, S, P, G, C & glow. X. This guy has it all.
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.

Mini stamp D-line P1x please :D

Hard P-line (kc) P1 please! I don't want to McPro's. There are ridiculously overpriced here in Finland and hard to get. I want more Discmania discs in my bag.

Not sure if anyone here is in touch with the Discmania store web content guy but... The circled text doesn't seem like it belongs.

Anybody have the down low on what the different FD2s are like in terms of stability. As far as I can tell there are 1st runs, production run C lines, and some glow C lines on the Discmania store.

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. ;)
