So what is the evolution of the P3? The glow I just got is all kinds of different from the D-lines I have.

Also, it looks like this glow P3 has a mini bead... if thats flashing then it is the most flashing I have ever seen, its like 1/2 millimeters high and 1 millimeter wide. Taking that off would be some serious work...

Pls Ryan tell me did they change the mold or what is up.

I really like how DM re purposed existing innova toolings/bottoms/tops into new molds, Hell you got the best goddamn disc ever made from the firebird bottom (PD). Is this still part of how you design molds? Will there be new molds made the same way (i.e DD2/PD2/PD/FD) out of pieces of existing discs?

ALSO.

Was your partnership with innova meant purely as a steppingstone to get into the DG market, one that you would eventually distance from as you grew, or intended to be something long lasting?

Wow, that P3 looks like an entirely different disc

for real though, g-line PD2. with some dome like the purple GPD i've got. it would be like heaven. the gstar destroyers are okay, but i have a feeling the g-line PD2 would be the new PD of the distance driver category. of course, of course, that's why it's called the PD2, but the glide gstar adds would be nuts in conjunction with the overstability of the disc.

We will keep this in mind for future productions.

I noticed that the FS has xout blizzard PD2's in stock. Anyone throw these on a regular basis? They go all the way down to 120 g!

the discmania store doesn't even carry them as a stock item atm...

We will have Blizzard PD2's soon. They are quite beefy for Blizzard discs.

What Yellow tri-fly dyed disc was Jussi throwing at the USDGC? PD or FD2?

It was a PD.

Thanks!

We are not sure about this. From what I understand there was a point where the PDGA required to have "PDGA Aprroved" on the disc and it was added then.

Good job.

Thanks we like it too.

We have them on the Discmania Store!

They are pretty close.

The Glow C-LINE P3 is very overstable.

Oh well, I guess it is all cosmetic and matters not a bit, if it is beefy as fxxx. But it needs to be plenty beef to kick out the Premium Jokeri.

What did you think of it after the comparison?

We will keep it in mind for productions.

Thanks for the observations and pics! There has not been a change in the mold. That is not a bead that is the flashing of the P3. This is by far the most overstable version of the P3 that we have thrown.

All we can say is this: We love our partnership with Innova, and wouldn't have it any other way.

The glow P3 is not a bad disc, I just have trouble throwing slower discs that have that much dome, it does not sit comfortably in my hand. I have a bunch of D-P3s that have accumulated for some reason although I dont bag them. Its a nice disc, very midrangey.

That is a buttload of flashing, are they all like this? If I were to try and remove it with a boxcutter it would be a lot of work, also trying to get it uniform across the rim.

Flat Premium Jokeri reigns the day in my bag, closely followed by glow MD3. ;)

SpikeHyzer 10-22-2014 08:35 AM

Just wanted to say that the P3 is one of the most under rated disc's in the game right now. Overstable to fight the wind and ranges quite well for a "putter" mold. The glow version is fantastic.

Also, for those that don't like the dome on the P3, I highly recommend some hot water. I flattened a C-Line just to see how it would fly and it's a thing of beauty.

What can we expect from DM in 2015?

Flick Maniac 10-22-2014 12:18 PM

Yeah theres that, however you can then forget about throwing it in sanctioned events...

I think there is room in distance drivers. 11, 5, -1, 3 or something like that would be nice for some added distance. PD1,5? :)

dehaas 10-22-2014 10:52 PM

G line gremlin and p3 would be glorious if they molded up flat.

Flick Maniac 10-24-2014 04:32 AM

Flat enough for ya? :D I did the hot water trick (actually the top became a little puddled because I think there was some low pressure between the rim and the weight I had on top) and also took it to sauna with me. Just for laughs. Will not be using this in regulation play obviously. For fooling around glow rounds mebbe.

Interestingly enough, it became less stable, well not flippy but the fade was eliminated almost completely. It is more like a touchey & glidey midrange now. ;)

SpikeHyzer 10-24-2014 06:01 AM

I've had a couple of issues with the top puddling a little bit on some of the disc's I've tried to flatten. Every time those are the one's that lose almost all of their stability. The most susceptible mold for this is roc's in my opinion.

The most recent C-P3 that I've purchased is just about that flat. Where yours is puddled, mine is maybe the equivalent to that on dome. It is pretty flat though compared to others I've owned.
