I’m actually intrigued. Swirly star is a nice plastic mist of the time.

I was thinking to myself, how can I combine very low weight for added distance without sacrificing all my control in the process? I really want something to lean into in calm conditions and throw Simon-style monster hyzer lines.

That's when I took a closer look at inflight and realized that the PD might be perfect for this - narrow rim to speed ratio, so I can go real light even in champ (found them <150g in C on infinite just now) without needing to go blizzard.

The question is, has anyone tried these super lightweight CPDs? Do they fly like a PD should in calm conditions?
Anyone else try these super light C-PDs?

With the moving sale, I picked up two more G-PDs. While I am glad they are not wildly popular, ensuring they are not out of stock if I need to pick up a new one, I am worried they are not popular enough and they will drop the plastic line. The G-PDs are awesome fresh. I have 400 foot power and could keep a C-PD straight if I wanted, but I am not throwing the mold for 400. I want about 340-370 dead straight, that means backing off full power, but I also do not want to worry being too finesse and worry about wrist angles. I am not good at hyzer flipping. I want to throw flat. The Gs are awesome, but I also know they are not as durable as C. Do not mention S Line; the last six I tried, from two different batches, may have been mismarked P, but they were flip machines out of my hand.

I am worried that the G maybe abandoned. I also think the G DD is an incredible disc, essentially a longer G PD, but Discmania abandoned those after one run. I stockpiled the ones I could find, but I do not want to wear them out with no hopes of replacing them.

I am glad I picked up these two yellow G PDs, but if anyone has a line on fresh yellow G DDs, let me know.

I hope they don’t abandon GPDs. They are my main driver.

Got to throw my Grady Shue Swirly PDs today. First of all these feel really good, much stiffer than some of the grippier s-lines they've been running and they have a low profile. These are also fairly overstable compared to most s-lines I've thrown.

I like Dark Maul - it's one of the better signature discs DM has released lately. Such a beautiful disc in dark turquoise plastic. Green and blue foils look really good on it.

I bought a stack of these and been throwing one with some dome on it. I also have some Dark Mauls with lower profile. Not sure if they are more OS than the one in my bag.

Not the Champ ones, but some of the best lightweight PDs were the First Run Star 150-class. Very beefy, and they stay that way. Then in the first production run of Star 150s they came out with a Champy-Star plastic that was see-thru in the red and yellow plastics. Not as beefy as the First Run but very sweet.
