The TDx is here! These things are awesome. There are definitely more stock releases on the horizon but most of which won't happen until next year, starting with the PDx of course.

S-Line CD3 will be available around the fall. Keep an eye out for those, we are very excited to get more of them into players' hands. We have been especially excited for this release and have gotten very positive feedback on the S-Line ones.

Swirl FD3 will return. As far as the stock versions go, those won't be made for a little while.

P-MD3 is on the list for production and they will return! You will see advertisement about those pop up when the time comes. It has been too long and we want them back just as badly as you do.

FD3 will return in the Swirl plastic very soon. Give it about a month or so and they will be back.

These are about to be made as well. The P-P1x will return!

Most likely yes. I know that the newest runs have that tooling as well but all of the previous ones other than 10th do not have the US tooling.

Old KP2s, any value in these?

Kennet 07-15-2017 06:59 AM

Can you tell which run is Avery Jenkins FD3? It Feels completely different in my hand as my regular FD3's in the shop. I'll link few pictures of it here!

Never knew they made AJ FD3, only thought he was on the PD

Very cool! Let me know if you want to sell/trade one

Flick Maniac 07-15-2017 02:43 PM

And some PD2s. FD3 is news to me too.:)

jjsl14 07-16-2017 05:58 PM

We need a d-line / hard p-line stock release of MD3 or MD4 so that you can wear them down fast like Philo does with his Roc's. Any plans for these?

Flick Maniac 07-18-2017 05:23 AM

Any chance for Discmania molds in D-line color glow??

Only joking :hfive: But do you see this on the horizon? Seems like a lot of the newer molds are getting the s-line/c-line treatment.

Or - could I order the first batch ever with custom stamp for the Discmania facebook group? :p

anthony.g 07-19-2017 07:34 PM

D-Line P3s (non-1st run) are getting harder to find. Whats up with them?

P-MD3s would be great! Or the "P-Line" used for the Eagle P-P2s. That stuff is sexy as hell. Feels amazing.

Owensjef 07-20-2017 03:57 PM

I have p line md3. They're out there still. New batch would be nice though

DinosaurThunder 07-26-2017 10:37 AM

Color glow CD3 please :D (color glow on the s-line side, not as champy)

The P-Line MD3 and P-P2 like the Eagle ones are the same plastic. The MD3 will be ready in a couple weeks.

They are out there for sure. It seems as if most of the regular production ones have sold and all that is left are first run lighter ones. Not ideal but there will be more coming. Most of our focus has been on the P3x instead which will definitely be a crowd pleaser.

Next year will ideally be the year for a lot of that kind of stuff. This year, we wanted to produce more molds and add a bit more diversity to our lineup. We have not released as many molds in a year until now and we have been very excited about it. Next year we will release the PDx, of course, and plan on making moves for increasing the volume of our stock. We can't promise that all of those stock versions will be made immediately Jan 1 but they are for sure on the agenda.

There is a chance and we have something special planned in the future. Though color glow D-Line is not it for the moment.

We will bring back the P-MD3 very soon. Unfortunately the P-MD4 will need to wait for now. Since it has yet to be fully released in any plastic, C-Line needs to come first.

Unfortunately I do not see your link anymore as it states that the link has expired. Chances are someone will be able to assist you if you post it on one of the collector groups and we can help. We tend to get a little cautious when clicking random links anyway.

There is definitely value in those. We don't really monitor collector prices too religiously and let the aftermarket do it's own thing. I would expect the KP2 to fetch at least $25-30. It just depends on who wants it.

Has there ever been and will there ever be a run of firm D line P2?

There has not really been a specific run labeled as stiff D-Line. Some of the more recent runs have gotten just a little softer, in fact. The current run in the store is basically how they should feel. It goes without saying but stiff D-Line is just going to be P-Line.

I don't doubt that you're right. Unfortunately, stiff P line in too slick and has no grip for me. I need either slightly softer P or much firmer D (like classic aviars), neither of which seems too likely to happen. :\

Although I've been running an experiment of sunbleaching a P-P2 that I threw up on the black tar roof of my garage in Spring. I"m going to take it down in Fall and compare it to another one from the same run I have as a control. It already is a bit lighter and feels a little softer.

-Discussion on the End of New DiscMania Molds-

I LOVED Jussi's interview in the Spring 2015 Disc Golfer Magazine where he talkes about a professional line of disc golf discs, with a full, but limited number of molds, enough to fill all the slots needed. I have wondered out loud in this thread before I think, but I am wondering out loud now - after the DD3 is out (likely next year), is that the end of new molds from DiscMania?

Maybe this is a Jerry Maguire type moment The Things We Think And Do Not Say. Fewer Molds.

This is my favorite disc golf company for the culture, feel, professional, global and long term view of disc golf. But in order to make Jussi's mission we gotta stop making molds. Or - retire them 1:1 as new ones come. I think dropping the Gremlin for the MD4 is OK for most, but I think the end is near on new molds.

As far as a professional lineup goes, anything from here would just be more Innova/Discraft/DD/Prodigy new molds for newbs type stuff. That's not what DiscMania is about. Or is it? Or is it not going to be what Jussi hoped?

I have trouble finding P-Line P2s as well. I think there are only three of them left at the official Discmania dealer here in Germany, but only in low weights. No other shop in Germany has them in stock. I have also checked the Swedish and Finnish websites without much more success. An update would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Maybe I was just lucky, but I found two yesterday at a local store in KC. Good luck on your search.

The stock release of the MD4 will come out when it is Fall in Finland :). But it will come soon. We have to release the TDx and the MD4 will follow shortly after.

That might work out well for you! I have heard of people doing that before and it seems fine. I would recommend using a black P-Line disc in the heat if you want something like D-Line but a bit more firm. Not ideal for all weather obviously but it is worth a shot.

We definitely have plenty of the Eagle signature ones online. Have you checked those out?

All valid statements. We do our best to have a professional lineup while keeping options a bit more limited to not add so much confusion. Granted, they all need to be good molds and nothing stays in the spotlight forever. We have discussed discontinuing various molds and in the end it will always be inevitable. Rest assured, however, that new mold production will not end with the creation of something like a DD3. We are just getting started and will have even more tricks up our sleeves for next year and the years to come.

DinosaurThunder 08-03-2017 11:30 PM

Here's my two cents on the above:

Place for new molds in the existing line up-
DD3 - not sure what this is, but should be good.
FDx - stupid OS speed 6 or 7 (retool whippet)
MD5/MDx - OS like a mortar or gator
P4 - small rim high speed putter

Molds to drop or retool:
MD1 - drop
CD - drop
FD2 - retool or new plastics
TD2 - champion treatment not in plus rim

If new molds are going to be done for awhile, stamp/plastic ideas:
Color/glow CD3, FD3, FD
Stiff d-line - P2
Mini old art stamps - like mini hysterias on s-line DDs
Bring back the first original Discmania stamp
Disc art work series celebrating disc golf park courses
Another stamp contest :)
Environment series stamp - water, earth,etc or bees, trees etc some of the profits go to organzations
Featured artist series

New013 08-04-2017 01:44 AM

Disclaimer: this is a question I don't want answered just speculated upon because I like surprises.

I wonder if the pmd3s will continue with the small shield stamp or get something else

Flick Maniac 08-04-2017 02:19 AM

Agree on the CD and MD1 drops. Plenty stock out there for people who do want them. But dont do anything to the FD2 other than run flat runs only.

Or an equivalent to the 2nd run FD, which are decently valuable. FD2 is not that.

That's why I have the caveat of other plastics. Basically if only small releases were planned and that mold is performing below expectations (this is me making this up), then a possible re-tool could boost sales on the mold.

After I lost all my soft glow FD2, I haven't wanted to bag it again :(

HyzerBisWolkig 08-04-2017 11:54 AM

I am not completely satisfied with the response regarding the P2 in P-Line plastic. The Eagle Signature series is very hard to obtain here in Germany and other countries have very high shipping costs in most cases or the Eagle version is already sold out. Also, the regular P-Line is a lot cheaper compared to the signature series. Since I do not want to buy only one putter, I'd end up paying a lot more. The discrepancy in price is about 7 euros... if I want to buy five putters, well, you can do the math.
As much as I like Eagle and want to support him, the advice to just go for the signature series which is much more expensive is not really what I wanted to hear, sorry =\

I agree with the above. I would like to see some more runs of stock production P-line P2s, i.e. a lot more availability... and don't try to upsell us to more expensive discs (which also are not available in any quantity at all).

All good ideas for sure. I will say that most of these topics have been discussed already and some will happen, some won't. The original designs in the large format will likely not return. We have made the call to eliminate those and portray our discs in a more professional presentation. That is not to say that there won't be a nod to each old stamp at one point or another, but full production of those things will likely not come back.

Fair enough, you deserve to be satisfied with upcoming releases as well as inquiries that you have. I will say that we have plans to release more of the non-signature versions very soon. On that note, if you have local dealers that you think should have more of the things you are looking for, have them reach out to us or whomever their distributer is and that can likely be solved. Keep an eye out for some more of those P2's to emerge shortly.

Best control driver ever. First Ace with my 6yo daughter as the witness :D and I love the Craze stamp

Discmania_Support 08-09-2017 03:14 PM

It's pretty likely that nothing will be dropped any time soon. Worst case scenario is that one or two may be retooled to our liking in the future but that is about it for now.

Monni 08-11-2017 10:41 AM

Any plans for the stock release of G-line DD. I have two prototypes and am really liking the disc :) Also any plans for new run of S-line DDs. Not many around in Finland at least.

This is not as likely as the others. The G-Line discs were not as popular as one would hope. The DD in particular was especially unpopular. It is likely that there will be another run one day but there is no telling when that day might come. There are a lot of folks that got them in their mystery boxes that may be willing to trade you for something else, I would wager. Sorry we didn't have better news for you but the DD is a great disc nonetheless!

I understand, but it is still sad to hear. I swear by the G-DD; while a few feet shorter than my main distance driver (by another company), when I do not feel confident with that other driver, either because of wind or just having a bad grip/ release point day, I totally trust my G-DDs. Always reliable and does exactly what I want it to do every time.

I have five right now, two black, two yellow, and a green, but with the lack of availability, it still feels like I do not have enough.

Side note #1; I never gel with any other G or GStars, but the G-PD is awesome as well. You need more yellows, and definitely a run of white. Most of the other colors I have been seeing are muted and dark, making them hard to see on the ground.

Side note #2; the teaser picture of the C-PDx I keep seeing is a milky white, the exact color I am looking for. I cannot get my hands on one though.
