Looks like the stock run of P2 releases Sept 21st per DM site, and a vendor is limited to one box of 46 putters (according to one random YouTube video).

i haven't given up on discmania discs (used to bag around 50% discmania 50% innova) but I did sell off whatever I could replace with innova equivalents for now.

i sold off all my DD3, MD3, MD4, P2 and PD because i loved those discs but its prohibitively expensive to try to keep throwing them as well as finding backups in case of loss/breaking discs/etc.

i figured the prices were so high for those last old school discmania discs it was a good way to just buy replacements with the offset prices i was selling them for. was sad though, like giving up perfectly awesome discs that I actually threw (didn't collect or planned to flip) and had so many sentimental memories where cardmates would ask (dang what disc was that?) I'd say something like... "it's a PD its like a mellow firebird with monster forward progressing skip" or "this is a P2 its an overstable aviar" and a week later that guy had a PD and P2 in the bag and he was raving about how much he loved the new discs.

there was a time when you could buy the discs at retail, then they got popular and pandemic (which is a good thing - popularity and not discmania's fault - pandemic) made discmania releases and even just stock crazy expensive. i understand al the manufacturers discs rose in prices due to pandemic induced scarcity.

I'm going to wait maybe 1-2 years with the new original's line until they get a steady stream of stock and prices won't be so prohibitive... then maybe get back into discmania stuff.

I did keep all my FD's though. I was lucky enough to build up enough backups and couldn't find the equivalent in innova (tried the leo3 and teebirds) and well I love the FD and wanted to keep at least one discmania disc mold in the bag because I still love the brand and hold out hope that Dismania discs original lines will be available at stock/retail pricing in the future.

I have enough PDs and FDs with varying stability to get me through for a couple of years.... I think. Grabbed up several of some runs I liked previously and have rarely resisted any I've run across in used bins.

My DM premium portfolio consists of - I used NS1, 2 NS3, 2 RT and 5 DM2. I generally bag a DM2, love the NS1 but can't convince myself to bag it. Pretty silly what those 10 discs are worth.

Edit - I forgot about my 2 second run FDs, haven't bagged them in a while. Curious what they're worth these days.

i remember when i made an all glow bag at the beginning of 2021 and its almost all discmania, glow c P2, color glow MD3 color glow FD, color glow PD, and realized that the discmania stuff was way too expensive to throw in dark/leafy conditions where discs are bound to be lost :doh:

it was a miracle to even make a bag with those discmania discs in 2021 without spending a fortune, but i traded some of my pricy innova stuff for what I needed and instantly regretted when the NS1 FD would hit off a tree into a pile of leaves in december in near darkness during glow rounds.

the 2nd run FD can net anywhere from 80-150$ depending on color/weight/condition.

i remember building up a stack of 2nd run FD just because in the beginning people hated them because they were so much more overstable than regular FD and I just wanted to simplify my # of molds and got rid of my brinster teebirds for the 2nd run FD. I ended up selling them off for $40 each and felt guilty way back in 2016 for selling them off for that much. lol

3 md3s and 5 fds for me, but I really wish I had picked up more md3s back in the day. especially color glow! I also knew a kid who collected a lot of discmania and then switched brands, so I could have gotten a fat stack of md3s for cheap... d'oh. hopefully discmania will be able to produce some of the new ones in premium plastics like that with similar results

Making discs lighter than 165g requires something to fill that negative space in order to bring the weight down, such as air in most cases. More often than not it creates more waste than is produced and even those that are successful aren't typically production quality. Latitude did make the air line at one point but hasn't actively produced them for a while for this reason. We'll keep working on it.

Sweet. Dates when you can. Also dates on the DD3 & FD (oh, and S-line versions).

appreciate the response! any chance you can hint at the possibility of future special blend MD3s? will be glad to pick up some c-lines but would love to be able to look forward to some other stuff too :)

My wife has a 150 class 12x Firebird, couple Champion Rocs and CE Leopard. None are bubbly. What was Innova doing before the Bubbly Blizzards.
Her old 150 class gems are nice.
