I finally got around to opening my large 1st edition mystery box because I had it shipped to my parents where packages don't get stolen. One of the two specialty stamps is a misprint with 4 stamps on it. It appears they did this because the first foil stamp didn't fully take hold. It's not a bad looking disc, but I don't think it's really one of the two specialty discs I was guaranteed. I watched a few unboxing videos on youtube and they got two non-misprint specialty stamps, so I can't help but feel I got kind of shafted.

I've included a pic. Feel free to put me in my place if you disagree, but I wanted to see if anyone thinks this is worth emailing them about.

"The special feature of this box is a brand new Discmania Special Edition disc, stamped with an all-new Thoughtspace Athletics designed specialty stamp that is not yet available anywhere else!

Large boxes will contain two of the specialty disc featured in each edition"

This is my first year getting their boxes. I got one from each edition and so far Iím not extremely impressed with my 2. I feel like they put a lot of unpopular molds in them to get them off their shelves. Iím not disappointed but I doubt I will be getting a box in the future

Iíve bought at least one for a few years. Pretty typical spread this year. I dont need the MF MD5 but itís a cool disc. I got a lot of stuff I donít throw this year but itís random. Itís not going to be a cart of your favorites but thatís part of the fun.

I wouldnít say these were unpopular molds at all. CD2, DDx, P1x, P3, MD5, new swirly s-line FD2. CD3, swirly FD3.

Nothing is making the bag but thatís more due to the fact that my bag has been set for awhile. Iíd bag the MD5 if it was beadless.

Plenty of people will be happy to receive these in trades over the next month or two.

I hope everyone is happy with what they got. I got some good stuff donít get me wrong but one of my boxes came with a gmd, cmd, cmd2,and 2 mf md5s. I wasnít expecting anything crazy but I also wasnít looking for 6 mids

Saw the video from Jussi about the new DD3. I'm still standing by my prediction that it's the retooled PD2 (aka glow c-line PD2). His description of it being a "PD2 for the masses" is exactly it. I'm glad it's coming out for good now! Awesome disc...

People are saying more glide than glow PD2s. Or a distance driver version of S-CD2. Cant think of a combo I would want to throw more than exactly that. Going to bite my lip though and wait for spring. Cant afford a box right now and theres too much snow to really get a good test anyways.

I've been testing an MD5 and love it. You're gonna have to go Caiman I believe.

Eagles vid today was pretty sweet. Seems like a great destroyer clone. I too will need to wait for production releases. It looks like I can sell off some PD2 backups though to pay for them which is great.

Also note that he only threw the majority of the PD2s about 460 on what appeared to be flat/flex lines.

That made me feel like I can throw decently far, not Simon/Eagle/Paul/Seppo far but decent.

Merry Discmas!

Yeah eagle's max was 500ft with PD2 but he wasn't even trying. He can throw that 500ft with a steep hyzer
