I might not be able to wait for the production run of these, they sound awesome. Really interested to see how they mold up in regular champ, hopefully not too beefy or anything.

I dunno man, thats a bit harsh... theres stuff on DGCR way worse

Why not get one now? I know some people are trying to avoid signature runs or other specialty runs, but for me I feel like a lot of them are better than the stock stuff and if you keep away from the really expensive stuff (like 2nd run FDs etc) then its usually not super difficult to get a couple backups too.

I guess if you look at it as an alternative to a 2nd run, makes it a little easier to open the wallet... DAMN DISCMANIA MARKETING!

Except that it’s not a 2nd run FD. There is no alternative, Discmania has basically proven that at this point.

As for the marketing bit, once you’ve seen behind the curtain, there’s really no going back. It’s not some huge conspiracy, it’s just a few people who’s jobs depend on them being active on social media. There are company reps who are here to push the conversation forward, then normal people chime in and sing the disc’s praises, they are niced, more people see that, more buy the discs, and the feedback loop continues. It’s whatever.

After the weird FD2 that I bought, I will be waiting for the stock champ run to really try out the mold. Too many things change between runs and plastics for me to invest further.

Here is a PLH comparison for the two RRs. How could discs from the same run be so different?

They are both FD2s for sure. The one on the left must have had some mistake coming out of the mold. It has some peeling on the bottom near the injection site, and the top is very flat. I’ll hit up DGU and ask them about it.

How are your Royal Rages beating in so far? Any updated thoughts on the new mold?

I bag my pink one and it's tough as nails. Has taken some hard tree hits and the rim is holding up really well. I get good flip up on forehand shots, but it always fades hard at the end of the flight. Backhand, it flies true to my release angle with the same hard fade. I'm happy about the durability, but if I'm being honest I was hoping to replace my FD with a beat in RR because the rim is so much more comfortable.

Definitely not losing any of their overstability yet. Still loving them, so I keep buying more backups. Then the stock run is gonna come out in a couple months and I'll *have* to buy some of those, smh...
