I hear that. The demos Iíve seen donít throw c-line and s-line PD comparison shots on similar enough lines to be conclusive. (Which probably means theyíre pretty similar)

Saw the Europe store has Leo vapor lux instincts. Any chance these will be coming to the states?

Metal Flake FD over there too. Same question.

ManU 09-21-2022 12:43 PM

Metal Flake FDs were released at Canadian Nationals ("released" or part of the Am Player pack)

my understanding was that they would be available for all

ManU 09-22-2022 04:12 PM

Did you guys pick up on the announcement for The Discmania Open?

to be held on the courses where Cdn Nationals were held this year (and in a few prior years)

Hillcrest Farm Golds are something

PEI is beautiful and the people are super friendly

It'll be September 2023...try to make it

Jolt 09-30-2022 04:05 AM

I cant remember where i heard it. .. but is there a stability difference between the colors in the MD3 and FD?

Flick Maniac 09-30-2022 08:30 AM

Not that I remember hearing about. PDs and DD3s yeah

Skervoy 09-30-2022 09:03 AM

Some swedish stores released EO P2 diline flex1 but I never saw anything on the dm store but I sure am stoked on the ones I picked up!

jskew113 09-30-2022 10:48 AM

I remember seeing them on the DM Europe Store with the other European Open stamped discs.

I think lower speed discs, with a smaller wing are less susceptible to variation due to color.
I did hear there was a slight stability variation between the pink and aqua Iron Sam 3s, due to one being slightly more domey, but I donít remember which was more or less stable.
Didnít hear anything on the FDs.

seedlings 10-01-2022 12:02 PM

Any guesses on the super secret disc Huk Sqad teased?

Aqua = more domey = stable is the word

My guess is glow FD Night Strike 4.

Maybe paradigm?

AlsoÖanyone know what the white team stamped driver was that Lizotte threw all over mvp? At one point he had it under his shirt during a sunny round. Hiding something, young man??

I thought he threw a stable CB3 in white.

Iron Samurai 4 has been given a drop date.

Too early for anyone from Discmania to note flight differences from earlier runs?

Can anyone from Discmania please note the difference between Meta and Chroma plastics?

Probably Lucid-x chameleon?

jskew113 10-12-2022 02:01 PM

Isn't that what Meta plastic is? Colorshift Opto/ Lucid/ VIP?

Pretty much. Not as grippy as stock Italian c-line unfortunately

dekdo 10-14-2022 09:01 PM

can we get a splice in italian c-line?

The IS4 is the best run of MD3 I have thrown outside of the old glows. Straight to OS out of the box. I can put full power on it and not get any right movement. Chroma is essentially meta for DM. If I were to guess it is meta and c line mix. Feels great and relatively firm for premium plastic.

discgolfjacquestati 10-17-2022 12:50 PM

This thread has probably been beat to **** but on Discmania's instagram, whoever is running it has been very vague but positive about upcoming discs - specifically Night Strikes and s-line releases, saying these molds will eventually be pushed out but not giving date ranges. Meanwhile the IS4 and Razor Claw are already being released and still no base runs in S-line.

There have been issues with leaking information about releases which then makes it really hard to market them, so they have been trying to keep things under wraps. I would not expect to see MD3 or tactic released in S line in the near future. S line MD3s were never overly popular or collectible and the razor claw will likely always be C line type plastic since it is up to Eagle.

Discmania keeps doing ‘special blend S-line’ runs of CB3, Cloudbreaker and Nordic Phenom. I figured they weren’t happy with whatever S-line they have tried, and that’s why they keep doing blends? Be cool if the Discmania user could touch base.

Have you considered that it may be a marketing ploy to charge more for a "special blend"?

Yep. Halo… Orbit… it’s a trend.

i will say that the halo star from innova does not seem to just be a mix of regular star. It definitely feels like a different blend from stock star. Whatever discmania calls it, the special blend cloudbreakers and nordic phenoms feel great.

I agree the S-line blend is good to go. Save that recipe and start pumping out some FDs, P2s, and FD3s.

Oh, and if the benevolent brain trust of Discmania would nod to the peasants, make a CD or TD. Something like a 10 speed that is workable for AM arms. The Mentor is not good. :clap:

Agree on the Nordic Phenom plastic, that's an excellent run of PD. I'd get several of them if not for my horde of originals. I'm bagging the NP along with a couple from my stash.

DiscT 10-19-2022 11:11 PM

Signature Saturation?
 
I became a Discmaniac late in the game, during the Innova fallout, so Iím not knowledgeable. Do we usually get multiple releases of the same signature disc in one year/season? My misconception was it would be one CB, IS, RC, etc per year. Now weíre getting two? Is that normal? I have even cycled the two IS3ís I have, and now I have to decide if I want to pick up, tryout, and possibly bag new ones? Just wondering if this is what we should expect.

And yes, I realize DM is trail-and-erroring with their own production facility. Iím curious if this is how it always was and if you think this is how it always will be now?

What had been the BEST release of the year, all things considered?

I’m in the same boat as you. I bought a bunch of all brands of discs and putters. I finally decided I like the P2 putter just as they were no longer available. The only other Discmania I had was a very overstable C-line FD. The Essence was the first DM disc that I fell in love with. Enigma was the next one I liked.

But, to your question, my most often used release from new Discmania has been the Razor Claw 3 and Sky God 4. My favorites to throw have been the creator Cloudbreaker and the Nordic Phenom. I never go for the FD3 (new MF version) any more. The Mind Bender is growing on me. I won’t pick up an Iron Samurai - it looks more overstable than the c-lineMD3, and I don’t need that.

If I were building a minimalist bag of new DM, it would be:
Flex3 glow P2 (jus saw these)
Sky God 4
Razor Claw 3
Mind Bender
NEO Essence
Nordic Phenom
Cloudbreaker

Heck yeah. Thanks for the response.

Did the creator Cloudbreaker kick the Enigma out of the bag?

The NP PDs are really good. They take the cake for me for best release from DM this year. Workable out of the box for a PD and I really like the flatter tops on them.

RC3 is a solid 2nd. I never really clicked with the Razor Claws until this last run. The RC3 has the HSS I want with the reliable fade I need for this slot in the bag. Made me bag Tactics again.

Awesome to know. I have a neo and an eco hard tactic, and sometimes I feel like Iím tricking myself into liking it more than my old zone. I love the hand feel more, but it never felt as reliably stable-OS. Have you thrown any of those and if so should I hawk them both and replace them with a meta?

This convo also adds another layer to this conversation: my DM-only bag is slowly becoming a Signature-only bag. Do you all see that as an issue? Our current dynamic is this: want an s-line PD? Signature. Less OS Md1? Signature. $$ DDD? Signature. Favorite tactic, soon to be (likely) color glow FD, c-line P2, and onÖ

Again, I know itíll take years to catch up, but Iím worried about the money in my bag with how it exceeds stock discs, replaceability factor, and inconsistencies for future runs. This feels a little different than other companies? Thoughts?

No. I have a 168g Enigma that is my longest disc. The Cloudbreaker I am beating in is getting close, but itís heavier. If they ever make 160 class discsÖ oh baby.

A Zone will go farther than any Tactic/RC mold, imo, which might be lingering in your subconscious. I donít need 50 more feet out of a RC3 - makes it hard to overthrow.

Discmania has Ďcaught upí with demand, I think. They did that while charging $5-10 more per disc for signature stamps. On one hand it helps the pros, so not all bad. DM is close to overplaying the upcharged discs, and they probably realize this since no molds are selling out before replenishment lately. If theyíre business savvy as they seem, this should mean that the stock runs of S-line molds are coming, which is the next avenue DM can use to increase revenue.

I threw ESP and more recently LE Glo Zones as well as glow Gators for years. I like the Soft Tactics fine. They are more inline with a base plastic Zone and do better for me BH and for touch FHs. I wanted the RCs to be that Zone/ Glow Gator utility OS and they never were, esp in the HSS part of their flight. I had decided I was not going to get a RC3. I caved when I saw how nice the plastic was and everyone saying how OS they were and have not left the bag since. I've even purchased backups so I'm all in. I'm going to be cycling softs and a Meta.

jskew113 10-20-2022 11:44 AM

Also nothing says that you HAVE to have the signature discs.

I could throw:
P1s
P2s
Tactic

Origin
MD3

Essence/ FD
Instinct
CPD

DD3

I would be just fine and my score probably would not hurt too much.

ILUVSMGS18 10-20-2022 04:37 PM

Anyone else find that the Nordic Phenoms are super durable? I've thrown mine full bore FH into a tree 50' away and no marks whatsoever besides some sap. Not to mention that they're probably the best run of PDs since the P-PDs that felt like S-PDs (I regret trading mine more and more each day).

jskew113 10-20-2022 11:38 PM

Anyone comment on the flex 3 glow P2s?
