Default Discmania TDx

Home for wild speculation and/or actual announcements

Disc dimensions:

Rim width- 2.0 cm
Rim depth- 1.2 cm
Disc height - 1.5 cm

The rim width is between the TD (1.9) and TD2 (2.1), while also deeper than both at 1.2 just like the new CD3 which they were trying to make ergonomic. So it's almost certainly a 10 speed driver, which leaves me wondering because that part of the lineup is pretty filled up already

Heard from someone who has thrown one that it was really understable. Asked to compare it to a TD2 but he said he has never thrown one of those.

If it's a little faster than a TD, i.e. a Speed 11 (give or take), then it fills a near empty space (per the Marshall Street Flight Guide).

It sounds like they want the TDx to be competition for the DD Renegade, which is a very good disc in that region of DG space. Might be interesting.

Well the TD and TD2 are both rated as 10 speeds despite difference rim widths, so who knows.

Some testers are coming my way. I'll give a rundown of the flight when I can.

which is odd because the TD is fairly stable (especially compared to it's ratings, the S-line seems more like a -1/1)

With the PDx being more overstable than the PD, the TDx sounds like it should be quite similar to a pPD. Makes the 'x' designation a little harder to figure out for Discmania.
