Are the C line throwback series Freak Stamped PDs 9th runs? I ask because the description says "Pro Tip: These are made from the newest run of the C-LINE PD. It's a great flying PD - it's very predictable and has unmatched beauty with the Jolly Launcher C-LINE plastic!" and Eagle mentioned a 10th run PD. Just trying to figure out if they are 9th or 10th

Good question. Yeah that is why we pay the discmania premium to order directly from discmania so we can know which run.

Otherwise why wouldn't one save a lot of cash and go to other retailers.

Im sure you guys have seen this, but just in case you havent: http://www.discmania.net/2016/11/08/...h-anniversary/

Really liking the look of those discs at the bottom. May have to splurge on an international order.

Reniger 11-09-2016 08:14 AM

Yup. Gonna need a few of those 10-year Anniversary PDs and FDs.

Interesting. I always had a hard time with Blue in winter and fall!

I'd definitely be interested in a D-PD.

thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for the CD2. I have had some time to test them. Intersting disc as I had no idea what to expect.

Here is my thoughts-same top as a PD. Bottom is a faster shaped fd. Amazing how similiar these two discs look. Think fd bottom with a slightly bigger wing and a PD nose.

The flight is like a broken in PD.. Actually very similiar to my Gstar PDs. As you know gplastic almost always adds some turn and decreases stability.

These are similiar to Saints. But a little less squirelly a touch more stable but with a touch less glide.

As for now, I have no idea where to put them in my bag. But the star swirl looks great and I keep taking them along to throw even though they have not found an offical slot yet.

-D-

most of our guys pair it with a PD and they can handle most distance shots until of course they're beefing up to the DDx or PD2.

The best colors are (this is not up for debate)- White, Pink, Light Blue, Dark Blue

Orange and yellow disappear this time of the year if you live in areas where deciduous trees dominate.

Hmmm. We usually try to have a variation of weights. but we must be out of them!

FTFY

I agree it's by far the easiest to find.

Therefore, alongside normal workable discs I will always carry a stupid stable mid and a driver. Currently a Justice and a 12x FAF FB.

Thanks for the feedback. We have found our Metal Flake FD3s to be pretty overstable and dependable!

What comes to colors; bright yellow! Not chartreuse please. Also light blue discs look sweet. Any possibilities we could see white x-line discs?

Thanks for the feedback. We have a problem making White X-LINE discs. the material always came out like light brown (from what I can remember), so since it's almost brown we avoid it.

Nope! we just made some Blizzard DDx's!

We have been working on making some minor tweaks to the mold to make it more overstable and be closer to our favorite prototypes. Thanks for the feedback!

Yes, for sure. The current P-LINE FD is closer to the S-LINE plastic than any other. It takes a little more beating that allows players to use it longer. However since it has more grip we have found that many players can make it turn more right away compared to it's premium siblings.

I will always have an FD

If I had one (disc golf) wish - I would make everyone at least try the FD. I think that was the disc that really caught my attention first.

There are rumors. We can tell you they are coming soon. currently there are 5 molds we have produced. What do you guys think they are?

I was trying to compliment my saints when I bought the fd. The jury is still out. But they are both great molds. It would be foolish to eliminate either one. The saint is longer. The fd is a bit more controllable.

On the talk about making molds throw able:

things have changed over the years in terms of discs being massively overstable. The FD3 is in that category. It is super os. And I can only justify bringing this disc out when the winds are blowing hard. Certainly not a disc that is deserving to be carried all the time like the saints and fds. I have mine fd3's in sweet swirl star so l love them. But really their only purpose is to defeat nasty headwinds.

Is that a Lizotte Swirl S-FD3? Those came out crazy overstable!

Flight patterns are nearly identical despite 2 speed difference. http://www.inboundsdiscgolf.com/cont...45876O777921OO

We have found many people found the FD more reliable because you didn't have to "power it up" enough to create the same flight. The FD does wonders with a smooth throw with controlled motions. You don't need to have a crazy fast arm to make it go far. Especially if you're throwing a softer S-LINE or P-LINE one.

They're actually the 10th run. The 9th run was a super small batch we had made as a mid season supplement. The two runs look and fly identical FYI. We got them to come out nice and stable but still had some decent glide to them! I was going to bring some for Eagle at the USDGC but didn't want to mess with his bag ;)

We have been trying really hard to teach our retailers to know what we have. Or at least let you guys know what you're looking for so you can get the right disc for you!

Any guesses on the molds?

Flick Maniac 11-15-2016 01:30 PM

Weeeelll.... you gave us FDs and PDs... PD2 is out. Heard that there are MD3s so that leaves only one... tough to say. DDx?

I wonder if the luster discs are all more overstable than their brethren. That would spell great news for thw MD3 and especially for the FD, if they came out anything like the 2nd run!

Reniger 11-15-2016 01:32 PM

Aww. No 10th Year PDs, CD2s, or FDs. Bummersauce. I'll prolly grab another S-DDx.

clard 11-15-2016 01:32 PM

I know it's been said, many times many ways, but man would it be great to have something like a 2nd run FD available again.

I came here to post the same thing. What was the point in releasing molds that most Discmania throwers don't throw. If it was my company I would want my anniversary products to be things that were revolutionary, for Discmania that would have to be the DDx, PD, CD2, and the FD. Only one gets a 10 year stamp? Hmmm something fishy is going on.

Have you guys seen the luster stuff coming out for our 10 Year Anniversary? I can tell you that there will be FD's (FD thread)

FYI - Have you guys seen our 10 Year Anniversary stuff coming out soon? I bet you can guess one of the molds with me being here (PD thread)
I dont know how you guys are reading all that, but he said 5 molds out in Luster, and pretty much confirmed anniversary Luster PDs and FDs in their respective threads.

CD2 revolutionary? Great disc but sure lacks the reknown the other molds have.
