I have several and they all flew more Hss than any of pd's I've tried. I like the pd but love the CD2 and with the release of the fd3 it kicked all pd's out of my bag. But I do like your comparison, I think the thunderbird is the glow sexton fb to the Pd's firebird. Where I think the cd2 is like a more HSS Valkyrie.

CD2's more HSS than PD's??

The CD2 is one of the best discs out there imo. Kinda like a thunderbird yeah, it is sneaky long, most people that throw them love them!

Has anyone here thrown the 'Hybrid S-line FD?' I saw it on the Discmania store and was curious to know how it flew/felt. Here's how Discmania describes it.
Quote:

Pro Tip: The Red S-LINE FDs are what we would consider "Hybrid Plastic". Hybrid plastic happens every now and then when a certain plastic blend comes out somewhere in between our super durable C-LINE plastic and our S-LINE plastic that has more grip.

brandocommando9 10-12-2015 05:54 AM

I have a bunch of the hybrids they fly more stable than your typical s-line a hair below the 3rd/4th run c-line.

vogurt 10-12-2015 11:51 AM

Hybrid's are money. If you think S Jackals are a bit too flippy but C lines are a bit too stable, that Hybrid is your disc.

Hybrids and Swirly S lines fly a little bit more stable than the normal S lines.

Nuts straight.

SpikeHyzer 10-13-2015 01:01 PM

So...any chance we'll see some more pumpkin D-P2's this year?

Also, really liking the new run of P-MD3's. These one's seem to break in a little faster than the proto's did. Now I can start rotating them and covering all my mid duties with various MD3's(C and P). Really looking forward to S-MD3's when they become widely available :D

True. Def going to try out the SMD3s, especially if they are beefy. I might have to check out the GMD3s too for the same reason.

DinosaurThunder 10-14-2015 09:02 AM

I still think flat top MF MD3's will give us ze beef we need. One can dream :)

Oh buddy...MF MD3's would be sweet...regardless if they're beefy or not. I'd buy a small stack of purple MF MD3's :D

Flick Maniac 10-15-2015 02:09 AM

That might actually happen. S#load of MF discs coming in lately

Sir-Hucks-A-Lot 10-15-2015 06:36 AM

MD3 nut here...what is MF? Also, any colors of the new MD3s that break in faster than others (I'd buy d-line if they sold it...used to love my flat dx rocs, and MD3s replaced my rocs for their great stable flight but better grip/feel).

brandocommando9 10-15-2015 07:33 AM

Sir-Hucks-A-Lot 10-15-2015 08:34 PM

Duh. Thanks! I'm from a disc golf generation sandwiched between lids and all these new companies, plastics, etc.

crater77 10-16-2015 10:50 PM

I would love to see a p-line or s-line CD2!

Flick Maniac 10-17-2015 05:29 AM

^oh yes indeed! beat up a little, hyzerflip all day

How to tell apart the old understable run of Blizzard PD2s and the newer run?

I haven't asked in awhile: P-FDs anytime on the horizon?

Good one, I'm considering a Seer myself right now. Normal SFD's are a bit more stable then I want for my arm in a understable FWY. Not into baseline D Line either, too fragile for how often I play.

A lighter s-line seasoned a little bit is nice and understable 350 and down.

Seer is a good replacement flight-wise, but it feels totally different. I know some like the D lines but it would be nice to have something to hold that stability a bit longer.

G-FD would probably fit the bill, especially in a lighter weight.

TheBMeistor 10-18-2015 08:41 PM

So I hear everyone likes the gummy PPD's. Why would they be preferred to the harder ones?

:sick:

I'd say it's more like 50/50 who like gummy P-PD's. Myself, I prefer the the stiffer P-Line's because of they seem to have better glide than the gummy's. But, the gummy's seem to hold their stability a little bit longer than the stiff one's.

fasteddie 10-21-2015 02:02 PM

crickets....

looking at the current line up, what do discmaniacs still desire or think is needed?

the disc selection is getting pretty well rounded.

I'd still like to see (this is mostly for sake of converstation)

p4-flat low profile glidless putter, the P3 looks and feels awkward (mega domes) rhyno/piggy/scale

MD4-flat low profile glidless mid, the gator/drone killer

FD4-crazy overstable trickshot spirit/firebird/flick (just for shiggles)

Maybe start running some different plastic configurations. The new PMD3s have caught a good following and proved to be a great addition to the overall offerings.

I seriously think that firm KCP Esq FDs would be awesome, if DX is justifiable I these should be too.

bright (no wine) metal flake MD3/FD/PD2

If you look at their current pro's bags you can tell where the next spots will be filled.

MD4- It's too bad they didn't get the mortar molding for the MD4. A beadless gator would have fit the bill. But I am sure they have a good reason for that! Eagle still has his gator which leads me to believe something is in the works.

I agree with an FD4 thoughts, but maybe more like a PD3? Something that resembles a champion max (or MF max that eagle carries) with so much beef it can handle any wind and will always dump hard. I think this would suit Eagle and Simon well and would be something unique for the lineup.

I like the idea of the P4 and feel that was the champion P2/P3 goal, but fell short. I know the jokeri reigns supreme for that spot in Europe. It would make sense to create something to compete for market share.

I still feel a speed 9ish roadrunner type disc could do well. The TD2 doesn't seem to have a strong following and much like the CD2 did for the rebirth of the CD, a TD3 could be the solution!

Discmania are not far off from having the perfect lineup. I don't see them being the company to add tons of new discs each year like Innova. I think they could round their lineup with 3-4 more molds and be set. Then they could focus on special stamps and releasing each mold in the various plastic lines.

The store has endless possibilities for new runs and releases of existing molds. MF anything would sell like hotcakes, especially within the fairway and mid-range lineups. Getting more molds (like the FD2 or CD2) into s-line or swirly s-line plastic. Creating flat top variations of the glow MD3 again (like the euro release) etc etc.

end of 2015-2016 will be exciting!

Jenga54 10-21-2015 03:47 PM

I agree with a lot of the aboves

I'm just so much a fan of the S Line plastic for grip and durability, and, I like many have been moving to DiscMania from Innova, and it's been one good thing after another. Luckily the P1x was coming out when I was in need of a dead straight putting and throwing putter, I wanted a putter to do it all, and that was/is it. Paired with the P2 for overstable drives/ approaches, I'm all set now putting and approaching.

- D P1x (putting, approach) and S P2 drives and approaches. And a standing $25 offer for a pink S P1x specially for me.

Probably my favorite Innova discs right now are my Roc3s - the Buzzz killer Star plastic and better-than-a-roc MF Roc3. Same mold covers almost all the ground in the mid area OS to straight, with a Star Mako3 covering the flippy range. I also carry a Gator, because sometimes you need to dive bomb or shoot around a corner and nothing does it better than a swirly pink Gator.

- S MD, S MD3, S MD4 would fill my bag on mids.

The S FD changed my world. It's longer and still controllable as a fairway. Flips up and can ride straight, or thrown flat can move right as much as I need with a flat finish. I have a Star Teebird that's just begging to be tossed in the backup box when the S FD2 comes out, and I'll be all set on the fairway world. It seems like I can almost stretch the FD2 to cover the FD3, but the FD3 has been a good forehand disc for me. Still have a new Star Firebird to give me the ability to really turn a corner and not glide out long.

- FD, FD2 and FD4 in S Lines would complete me in the fairways.

I'm coming from a Wraith background as the destroyers have always been just out of reach except for the windiest days. Adding in a DD now and working off the initial stability. Also have a DD2 that's just too much disc for me. Even with the understable ratings it's just too fast to get hold of and make it fly correctly. The CD is awesome. Adding the PD which early indications look awesome. If there were a driver to add for me, it would be an 11-12 speed driver with some turn right out of the bag.

- CD, PD, DD, and maybe a TD Rush, all in S Lines would cover my bag.

fasteddie 10-21-2015 03:57 PM

"- CD, PD, DD, and maybe a TD Rush, all in S Lines would cover my bag."

they make all of those in Sline

vogurt 10-21-2015 04:50 PM

Don't quote me but I'm pretty sure you'll be seeing Swirly S line MD3's soon. And they're flat. :clap::D:thmbup:

ill4mation 10-21-2015 07:39 PM

Not sure if this has been asked but will we get some more lizotte stamped c fds in the store? Red is all that's left but I'd like more colors.

Friday is the date. And yes, pretty darn flat...if they mold up like the tester I have.

thirtydirtybirds 10-21-2015 08:58 PM

Just got 2 fresh P-P1s. Man the grip is great, but they are a bit softer than I hoped. Very cool looking tree ring like pattern in the plastic, super HOT pink. I'm pretty happy overall. Have they ever done stiffer pro for putters? Would like that grip but stiffer, would be the perfect putter. Paired with a nicely seasoned S-Line, I'm all set from 150' and in!

Discmania is taking over my bag like a plague on all other discs.

thirtydirtybirds 10-21-2015 09:17 PM

Also I almost forgot. What is up with P-FDs?!?! I need this in my life.

Kodachrome 10-21-2015 09:26 PM

I've had some extremely stiff p2 in p line.

I agree, although I gave up on waiting and have a X Mantis on the way. Hoping it is what I hope a P FD would be like.

Not sure if you know this or not, but P-Line P2's are run in a different P-Line plastic than that P-Line P1's. The P2's are run in a KC Pro like plastic where as the P-Line P1's are run in a plastic more liken to the X-Line...just a bit less rigid.

Kodachrome 10-21-2015 10:31 PM

Nope, had no idea. Very interesting though.

fasteddie 10-22-2015 12:00 AM

so does anyone here have:

"viper PD" old EO or Presidents cup one I think, has a big sweet snake on it.

the lynx predator stamp atlas?

yes, p-line p2's are a soft pro plastic like mcpros. They are also ran in a stiff pro plastic much like kc pro penned "KP2". Lastly the p1 is ran in r-pro or else it would be a mcpro aviar.

Flick Maniac 10-22-2015 04:05 AM

Pretty much what has been said before. Super stupid OS putter mid and fwy. Also A little bit faster, longer (i.e. with a touch of turn) PD. Something like 11-12 / 5 / -1 / 2 driver would be nice. Although a beat in P-PD2 is pretty much that. But a out of the box one in JL plastic would be lovely.

Europeans do if you are willing to shell out the cash. The lynx came on an atlas and a P2. (they had a 4 piece P2 collector set with all the stamps) It's a shame the set never made it to the US.

I have only seen two people with the viper stamp in their collection. It was a players pack only disc. Is that your holy grail?

My holy grail is the Scandinavian open P2's from 2008. No one from Europe will sell me one though :(

I was looking for one through the MP for a while, but all I got were a couple of pictures from Europe from people who had them and wouldn't part with them. Super rad stamp on those things!
